In this article, you’ll learn how serving others contributes to personal growth.
You’ll be inspired to experience the benefits of service for yourself.
Service to Others
Service to others is one of the most gratifying experiences you’ll experience in your lifetime.
It starts with the reaction of the person you’ve given your attention and service to.
“The look in their eyes is as genuine and pure as the most beautiful sunset you’ve ever seen.”
You can feel their energy and it’s almost impossible to hold back your emotions.
It’s amazing how such a powerful connection can take place between two perfect strangers.
5 Reasons Serving Others Greatly Contributes to Personal Growth
Here are the ways serving others has an impact on your personal growth, happiness, and sense of purpose.
1. You Will Find Yourself
The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.
“We are all on a lifelong quest of self-discovery.”
Relentlessly searching for purpose in our lives.
This inherent desire to search for meaning seems to become greater as time passes.
Serving others quickly opens you up a secret not all are told.
“That secret is the fact that service is our purpose.”
Is our purpose as simple as a kind gesture to a stranger?
Is it to simply be kind to others?
Maybe we’ve been overthinking it all along?
2. Enter a State of Receiving
When serving others they will enter into an emotional state of gratitude.
This gratitude will also be felt by you as emotions are often contagious.
“Amazing things happen in a state of gratitude.”
Gratitude is considered a receiving emotion.
A receiving emotion is a state of being where you are energetically open to accepting and receiving insights, opportunities, and gifts.
Things start to happen without you consciously recognizing them.
You quickly learn that receiving starts by giving.
3. Self-Perception Improves
When you look into the mirror, what do you see?
We all have a perception of who we are as people.
For many of us this perception is distorted and for others, a bit more clear.
Many of us create the narrative in our mind that we are not good enough.
Serving others is proof that we are in fact good enough.
Placing others before ourselves we become selfless.
“When we think of ourselves less often we free ourselves up to inviting our truest self to be revealed.”
Service to others is an admirable and selfless trait that the great possess.
It’s additional proof that you are love, you are worthy, and you are good enough.
You always have been, it just took service to wake you up to see it.
4. Personal Growth Becomes a Habit
When you start to serve others you start to create a shift in your life.
This shift creates momentum and personal growth on a daily basis.
You become a 1% better version of yourself every day in every way.
Relationships with others improve.
Your relationship with yourself improves.
Most importantly, your relationship with your God, the universe, or source becomes more intimate.
Focusing on the growth of others becomes the key to your own personal growth.
5. The Ripple Effect
The most powerful outcome of service to others is the ripple effect it creates.
“One good deed inspires yet another.”
Receiving a gift of kindness feels like being handed a baton to carry on and pass on to the next person.
Simply imagining the ripple effect of your service alone is a powerful experience to enjoy.
To know that you were the source of joy, not for one but for many, is one of the greatest gifts you can experience in life.
The ripple effect clearly shows how clear our purpose truly is.
