I go above and beyond every single day. I do not see giving and helping as going out of my way.  I see it as an opportunity to make a difference in the world and in someone's life.

I help out when I see help is needed or asked for. Counting how often one does that sort of defeats the purpose of being kind and charitable. And I don't think of it in terms of "going out of my way" or getting something back in the idea of what goes around comes around.

Honestly, I don't go out of my way to help anyone.

Anyone with a connection to the deep recesses of their heart know their/our existence here is to help others. Our vocation is simply the vessel in which we travel to meet those that can be helped.

As Mother Teresa said, "When we help the poor we are in the presence of God." Jesus said, 'When you help the least of these you are also minsitering to me."

No one can be in HIS presence without being refreshed and sustained.

We should choose NOT to deny ourselves this great communion to experience what should be so common, but find we must go out of our way because the way has been obscured.

Will,

I don't have to go out of my way, there are always opportunites to do that.  The question is seeing them in front of our nose, and what goes around comes around does not enter my mind at all.  A

Whenever I know someone needs help or they ask for it. I strive to do at least one random act of kindness every day and don't expect anything in return.

Love this quote by Princess Diana

“Carry out a random act of kindness, with no expectation of reward, safe in the knowledge that one day someone might do the same for you.”

'At first request, The Mothers answer.'

'At second request, The Mothers answer.'

'At third request . . . The Mothers do not answer.'

Do not come out of habit, or irresponsibility.

Loose translaton via the I Ching. What is means is, if someone sincerely needs help, get them healthy and teach them to fish!

IF however, someone repeatedly comes for 'pampering, not solutions', and drains your life force (energy vampires) you are either coming from YOUR ego, encouraging dependency or denying someone access to THEIR lessons. 

So yeah. At yer service. Giving till it feels good, not till it hurts!

Would I sit in the thick woods to capture a lost dog?...absolutely.

Would I cut commission to "help" an agent?...never.

I don't start each day with a mission to help.  If it comes along and is important, I help without a second thought.  The rest just depends on what "help" means.

Will,

As often as possible. I have many clients including widows and others that I have taken off wallpaper or painted or repaired things because it was the right thing to do. To those of us who have been given much, much is expected.

I saw a wheel chair lady came to look at a home. I asked there are no cars anywhere in sight, how she got there. She took the bus. She could not get inside the house as she did not bring her walker. I drew layout of the house on the house and explained every room verbally. I made sure she got back to the bus stop before leaving. Handed her my card.

The phone ran. Sam, Can you represent me purchase this home. Sure. How much you want to make an offer?  Wait. You need to give me back 75% of your commission. How much do you want to offer? 50% of asking price.  I am sorry I do not work that way. Bye.
