Motivation to Help Others

What motivates you to give back and have compassion for others? Does improving your community motivate us? Is your motivation driven by a personal experience? Do we just want to do a good job so that we can feel good about ourselves? Any or all of these questions might be your reason for being charitable.

When trying to do good for others, we need motivation to keep pursuing our vision. Here is a selection of quotes for you. Hopefully one, or some, of them will have a positive impact on your mindset.

Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow has not yet come. We have only today. Let us begin. (Mother Teresa)
