A great way to help someone is to give a hand up to the ones who are willing to sincerely improve their situation, but without nurturing dependence. Ask yourself how you can use creativity, experience and skill to turn a problem or “lack” into a harmonious understanding; a place of growth.
Look for ways to be helpful without creating dependence. Although it may be difficult to detach oneself enough from the outcome of one’s own efforts, it’s best practice to promote self-sufficiency and success among others. In some situations people need assistance or support, and it is good to help them.
Avoid falling for the “victim” card – help those that want to help themselves because if we spend our energy doing for those who can help themselves, we are actually performing a disservice.
Stay solutions-focused and think of ways to offer your best contribution so you are helping, and avoid an outcome that could result in you saving or rescuing.
Your best contribution lies in encouraging and challenging others to rise above their current limits, learn from the experience, and create a desire to pay it forward.

Reflections in Gratitude
By Paulette Esposito
Jodi Nicholson is amazing! Reflections in Gratitude is a delightful tool that has helped me think about all those incredible and fabulous miracles we all encounter every day and it is a place to keep them visible to look back upon. There is an elegance and gentleness about the book that is so compelling. It is the last and most important writing I do before I go to sleep. And writing those thoughts puts me in just the right frame of mind for peaceful sleep. I highly recommend buying it….I actually have two copies! Timeless and priceless.

Jodi Nicholson has written an easy to use tool that is essential to creating the most favorable conditions for success. I don’t know how many notebooks, and even leather bound volumes that I have bought over the years to use as a journal, but they end up unused and the habit is not developed…. This book guides you step by step to create the essential skills of journaling and living a life of gratitude.
