Helpful. Word of week

This weeks word of the week, part of a home education curriculum for our 2yr old son.

Helpful, one of the scout laws.
To be a person who helps others is something we should all strive to be and as part of the command to love your neighbor more than you love yourself.

This is something that we have been blessed with. Many people have blessed us with great helpfulness in our times of need.

Now with a LIFE TEAM we have a lot of helpful people working on our behalf, and whose behalf we are working on.

This week our son has been showcasing his ability to be helpful, just today he helped me carry groceries, he helped me pick what fruits he wanted, he helped me walk safely from the car.

There was of course a moment when none of us were helping each other. We all had our own agendas going and had lost perspective, therefore we lost our helpful attitude.

By applying principles that we learn from our business training, mainly asking questions, we have found it much easier to bring our son back round to being a helpful little boy rather than a crying screaming maniac.

Asking questions, it is how we can be most helpful of our fellow man.

Questions like;

HOW ARE YOU TODAY?
HOW IS YOUR FAMILY?
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU NEED?
OH YEAH WHYSAT?
DO YOU WANT TO BE DEBT FREE?
DO YOU WANT MORE FREE TIME?
DO YOU WANT FINANCIAL FREEDOM?

By simply learning how to ask questions we can be helpful to those God has sent us here to assist.

Being helpful is how friendships are born and blossom. Helping one another is how families get through the tough times together.

To be helpful requires that you must put your own wants or desires to be directed on being helpful. Focus on how you with your own unique skills and talents you can patiently bring forth positive changes in the world.
