At the Calder House, we help guests re-connect with themselves. They come here seeking answers. One recommendation we often give is explaining the power of "service"; finding a way to contribute to others.
The beauty of "Finding Purpose" and "Service" is it allows you to remove yourself from your own troubles and dis-ease. It gives you the opportunity to do something for someone else. It brings "light" to your heart and cures all that ails you. And the biggest bonus is seeing the gratitude in the receiver's eyes! Try it, you'll like it.
Bridget Shaw's tip is as follows:
STEP EIGHT - FIND PURPOSE
Contribute to others. Find a way for your friend to help others. This is a great way of taking the focus off of oneself.
