Last week a colleague of mine sent me the following quote:
“Every time you build into the life of another person, you launch a process that will never end.” – Howard Hendricks
This quote has a very powerful message which I feel all of us should think about and action.
You do not necessarily need to be a wealth mentor or a life coach to help others build their lives. Although, this level of focused training and the personal development coming with it will help you have enormous impact.
Regardless, of what you are doing in your life or where you are at, helping others in some way to build their lives will be a powerful experience for them and for you. You can do this as simply as asking them a great question, being curious about them, going for a walk or doing an activity together, sharing a story, writing an article that gets published to the masses or delivering a workshop. There are many ways to impart your wisdom and life experiences.
Think about what might happen if you help somebody else grow in their lives. They will remember the moment, become more empowered and ultimately want to help many others. They will do it subconsciously any way because of their own growth, but even better if it is intentionally done.
In essence, by helping others grow and build their lives you will be part of a movement which will have amazing and never ending impact.
In recent times, I have become a lot more intentional about helping others of all ages through helping them discover their life purpose. I have found that when people discover their life purpose they want to share the experience with others. What is your life purpose? How could you help other people grow in their lives?
