    Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Welcome to Happiness Index.  Today we will continue to explore with you the concept of Hope & Service as a path to happiness.  Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Service is a valuable action, deed, or effort performed to satisfy a need or to fulfill a demand.  When we have hope and we are in service.  We are in a positive state of mine that the action or deed that we are performing for another will have a positive outcome. We believe that what we are doing will make a difference and as a result we are happy. Joseph Addison said, Three grand essentials to happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.  Join the conversation and share your wisdom on Hope & Service: A Path to Happiness by calling (347) 539-5818.

    Hope & Service: Path to Happiness

    in Relationships

    Thank you for listening to Happiness Index and we are continuing our conversation on hope and service.   Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one's life or the world at large. Vaclav Havel, former President of the Czech Rebubic said, Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism.  It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out. We are convinced that everyone who gives of their time to serve others are deeply rooted in hope.  Hope is an optimistic state of confidence and an anticipation that service is hope.  It encourages to believe that your giving of yourself will make a difference.  Hope is a cornerstone of volunteerism. Our focus today will be on the value of hope to inspire us to serve and how hope and service is a path to happiness.  Thank you for listening to Happiness Index on Blog Talk Radio.  Join us in this conversation and make the world better for all, call (347) 539-5818.

    Service: A Path to Happiness and Love

    in Relationships

    Thank you for joining us on Happiness Index, as we continue to deepen the conversation about service.  The theme for the show today is, Service: A Path to Happiness and Love.   We suggest that if you want happiness and love service is the path to take. You want a better community, then give of yourself. You want a happier life then find someone to serve.  Examples of great leaders are, Nelson Mandela, Mahatma Gandhi, Buddha, Muhammad, Jesus, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., Mother Teresa, Princess Diana to name but a few. All these leaders have one thing in common they served and went beyond a call of duty.  One of the better-known benefits of serving is the impact on the community and the person who is being of service. People who volunteer are the glue that holds a community together.  The beautiful thing about service is that the person who gives of him or herself receives the benefit of giving.  Giving and receiving are the same. As we continue this topic of Service, we will be happy, because we will serve as we encourage you to serve.  The benefits of service:  1. Service connects you to others 2. It helps you to make new friends and contacts 3.  You gain new skills 4.  Be happy find someone and somewhere to serve.  Dr. Martin Luther King said, Everyone has the power for greatness -- not for fame, but greatness, because greatness is determined by service.  Service is a matter of devotion and love!  You can share your wisdom on this topic by calling (347) 539-5818
