SERVICE - Give Your Time and Talent to Benefit Others

With all the demands in your own life, you may wonder how to squeeze in time to volunteer. But getting involved in a worthy cause can bring rewards that last beyond your lifetime.

How can you be of service to others on a daily basis?

“One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.” - Albert Schweitzer, French philosopher

"Give back and be a positive influence on others. That's all you can do; take what you've been given and spread it around." - Denzel Washington, American actor

"From what we get in life, we make a living. From what we give, we make a life." - Arthur Ashe, American professional tennis player

“The ultimate aim of the hero’s quest must be neither release nor ecstasy for oneself, but the wisdom and power to serve others.” - Joseph Campbell, American anthropologist

Loyalty - Be There for the People Who Are Important to You

It's not easy to be true to your relationships when people you care about are going through tough times. You have a lot of other commitments, and you may be afraid of letting them down. But you have what it takes to be the kind of person who will "be there" for them through thick and thin.

Have you ever been torn between two loyalties, requiring you to make a hard decision? Please share your experience and what you learned from it.
