    What should we do for the betterment of others?

    In this modern age, we are busy in ourselves, we donot have time for others. Even we donot get time to think over all this things. But we are human being, so we must think about others. I want to know how we can do something good for others?

    In my humble opinion, the best thing we can do for the betterment of others is to decide to respect and believe in them before we get to know them. No matter how gruff on the outside, each person is a masterpiece of God's hand created to be the special person they are. My children and I just watched The King's Speech. As the story goes Prince Albert succeeded his father and his brother as King of England in the late 1930s. Prince Albert who was later known as King George VI had a debilitating speech impediment. The new king did not even believe in his own ability. But, his speech therapist believed Prince Albert could be a wonderful king. The therapist, Lionel, believed in Prince Albert's ability to be a fitful king even when others didn't. Yet, Lionel had to decide to believe that Prince Albert was not a hopeless case before the prince ever proved it. When assign great worth to an individual before we ever know them and before we know their circumstances, then we are more apt to reach out to them with patience as the need arises.

    The Idea, that I ... am other, than the others, is quite wrong ...all of us are part of a congregate, called Humankind ... because, we, as I ... are from and among human kind ... wrongly addressed by the "I's" ... as others ...

    All of us are Equals ... all of us have our strengths and weaknesses ... all of us see, taste, feel, hear, and smell, as one ... though we exist in the distinct state of Individuals ...

    Whatever we think,and do, has a Domino Effect, on those, we think, are the others ... and what others think and do effects us, equally ... for being Human does not entail isolation.

    Thus, as Distinct Individuals, we should think and act in terms of doing such good to and with, ourselves, which does no wrong, to the so called "others" ...

    If we try this approach in life ... and Improve and correct ourselves ... we would have served the very Purpose of our Being ... In, Creation.

    Hi, I think the best way to work for the betterment of others is to be ears to people who need someone. Its very easy to help people financially and all but lives have now become so frustrating that people just need somebody to listen to their grievances.

    i think the best help we can give somebody is time. time is so precious for all of us. giving time to someone who needs it badly and merely listening to them can be a big help.

    Find a selfless deed, and do it!

    Whether it means volunteering your time at a food bank, or helping a homeless person for one day out of your life to get back on his feet with just something as simple as a warm meal and nice hot shower. Be vigil of the dangers mind you, but try to be considerate to others in a way that exceeds the every day normality.

    Listen. Something as simple as it sounds yet none of you are truly listening even as i say it. LISTEN! Problems exist in our lives and some of them are so close to home yet we choose to blind ourselves to the issues and go on about our day as if they dont really exist. If you listened, you may not have to ask this question. (don't mean to sound rude, sorry)

    Teach and do. There must be something unique that each and every individual can lend to this existance. Something that we can each do far better than anyone else. If you feel it is working with your hands, then build something. If its writing, then use your words to inspire someone. There's nothing worst than wasted talent.

    Love. Learn to love yourself, your neighbours, your family and strangers without the need to have them love you back. So often i see love being treated as some kind of a reciprocated agreement when i feel like true love is solely built around how you feel towards something. Love in a way that shows others and inspires other around you to love the same way.

    Betterment of others; humm, this is an age old question that many of us never thank about. As you said "we are busy in ourselves", our work, our work and our work. Over the last 10 to 15 years the world has become such a tough place to live that it takes working more hours just to get by. The age of loyalty is gone in the business world, it is no longer what did you do for me yesterday; it is what will you do for me today and tomorrow? I've found that living a Godly life actually betters others you come in contact with in ways you do not even realize. I can recall 4 different co-works throughout my working career coming to me out of the blue and thanking me for being a living example. Of course I had no idea what they were talking about. One of the guys only knew me through another co-worker, he had joined us for lunch on a few occasions but that was really all the hanging out we did. He was having trouble with one of his kids, it just so happened that one of our conversations during lunch I was talking about our youth group at church and how it had changed several of the kid’s outlook on life. It was that same evening that he contacted a local church and had a conversation with their youth leader and their program.
    Now get this, this family did not attend church. The Sunday following his conversation with the youth leader he took his whole family to church. He met the youth leader and introduced him to his family. His son actually saw a few friends after service. The son and his other 2 kids started going to the churches Wednesday night kids program and had a great time! Low and behold he and his wife continued going to Sunday worship and eventually joined a Sunday school class and then a life team. We must have talk for an hour or so. He told me how much his sons attitude and outlook on life had changed, and how his whole family had grown closer since they started attending church.
    I guess what I'm trying to say is you never know when or where you are going to better someone. That one story really opened my mind and made me realize that our every action throughout life can influence other people without knowing it. Take advantage of the strengths we each have and set examples for others to follow.

    God Bless!!

    Many things we do throughout the day affect the lives of others.  But did we set out to do anything for their betterment? Probably not, and with good reason.  We must first understand that we must better ourselves; this in turn will cause us to treat others better, setting them on a path to do the same.

    Choose our actions carefully.  Henry James gave this guidance:  "Three things in human life are important.  The first is to be kind.  The second is to be kind.  And the third is to be kind."

    It will be more than enough if  you better yourself. Buddha says until unless one is not enlightened, one can not help other.
