Every time we pitch in to make conditions better for any form of life – we are being of service. Being of service quotes remind us these acts of compassion are also shortcuts to happiness. Opportunities to serve are everywhere. Start at home. Look for ways to spread some kindness or compassion. Look for little ways to help those who least expect it.

Next, take ‘being of service’ out into the street. Look around your neighborhood and act on what comes into your field of vision. You may find yourself picking up litter or deciding to mow the lawn for a neighbor with health issues. But don’t stop there. When you are at work – servant leadership can kick in. Use your imagination to come up with ways to be of service to your co-workers, boss, and customers. A ‘service’ attitude adds great value to your life and everyone in it!
