What comes into your mind when you think of a helping hand? the picture here shows one climber helping another. In life isn’t that what we are really doing as well? Helping one person from a low place onto higher ground. A place where they can see farther than they have ever seen before. Or maybe just the ability to see things from a different perspective. Picking up on some minute details previously missed.

Sometimes the higher place was never that far out of their reach to begin with. But without the assistance of a second pair of eyes or ears the person receiving the help would have missed the opportunity all together.

It is not necessary to be the one providing the help all the time. Conversely, being the one requiring help all the time will become tiring to those who have helped in the past. There is a balance to be found here. Success comes to those who can find their balance between Giving and Receiving.
