Volunteering at Other Organizations
Rev. Steve Lawler, founder of the Lawler Organization, adjunct professor of leadership and business ethics at Washington University,and GO! Network presenter, advises job-seekers to “Know yourself. Be yourself. Give yourself away.”
To “give yourself away,” he explains, is to use your time and talents to help others. Doing this will not only help your community, but also will benefit you.
When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor. — Norman Vincent Peale
