    For many years, I waited for something to come to me.  Perhaps it was shyness or the fear of nonacceptance by others.  I don't really know why but thanks to a famous quote spoken by John. F. Kennedy, I have changed.  The quote?  "Ask not what your country can do for you-ask what you can do for your country".
     
    So it took me ages before that quote finally meant something to me.  I waited for opportunities to come my way.  I waited for my place of worship to give me something when I sat in the pew.  I waited to be served.  
     
    Things finally changed one day when I began looking at myself from the outside in.  I didn't volunteer, I wasn't really involved in anything for others and I wasn't satisfied with my life.  I decided I didn't want to be that person anymore.  Perhaps the way it works to reach contentment is to do for others without the expectation of getting anything in return.  I try to follow that path now and from time to time people will ask what I get in return.  My answer:  Nothing and everything.
     
    For you, I hope you perform one selfless act and inspire one other person to do the same.  In that way, you will make the world around you a little bit better.  You will have made a difference.
     
    Me?  I now volunteer my time a couple of times a year to direct chess tournaments for elementary aged kids at my children's former school.  The last one had over 100 kids participating.  I've also organized a couple of weekly bicycle rides along different city routes to bring others together and I sing each Sunday with my Church choir.  Do you know something else?  I am content.
     
    I am a CPA in San Antonio and provide bookkeeping, payroll, taxes and more.  Give us a call for a free initial visit.  We look forward to serving your business needs.
