Mother Teresa's Defining Moment

So many people want to avoid any hint of a problem or challenge, yet surmounting difficulty is the crucible that forms character.  Many people don’t discover their heroic nature until a major difficulty or life-threatening situation occurs and they must rise to the occasion because there is no other choice.  The next time you find yourself in a tough spot, decide to make a difference in that situation and take action, no matter how small it seems at the time.  Who knows what consequences you will set in motion?  Identify yourself as a hero so that you can act as one.

Many people look at a person like Mother Teresa and assume that she was born to heroism.  They claim that she’s just an incredibly spiritual woman and that she’s always been set apart by her commitment and selfless contribution to the poor.  While it is true that she is a woman of extraordinary courage and compassion, it is also true that Mother Teresa had some crucial moments that defined her role as one of the great contributors of our time.  Mother Teresa did not set out to help the poor.  In fact, for over twenty years she taught the wealthiest children in Calcutta, India.  Every day she overlooked the impoverished slums that surrounded the well-to-do neighborhood in which she worked, never venturing outside her tiny sphere of influence.

“If you’re not giving of yourself as much as you’re giving of your wallet, are you really generous down deep? We should work hard to make the Virtuous Circle of Generosity the number-one epidemic in the United States – giving of wealth, giving of self. Unstoppable and unending. ~ Dave Thomas, Wendy’s

“The service we render to others is really the rent we pay for our room on this earth. It is obvious that man is himself a traveler; that the purpose of this world is not ‘to have and to hold’ but ‘to give and to serve.’ There can be no other meaning.” ~ Sir Wilfred T. Grenfell

“The purpose of life is not to win. The purpose of life is to grow and to share. When you come to look back on all that you have done in life, you will get more satisfaction from the pleasure you brought to other people’s lives that you will from the times that you outdid and defeated them.” ~ Harold Kushner
