According to Wikipedia, Volunteering is a voluntary act of an individual or group freely giving time, labour, money, etc., for community service. Often at times, we feel we don’t need to volunteer because it is time-consuming, but the truth is “volunteers don’t have the time, they only have the heart”.
There are several important reasons to volunteer if you want to fast-track your success; read till the end to know.
Volunteering is what everyone should do at every point in time, be it student, worker, married ones, etc. It isn’t limited to a particular gender, volunteering is open to all. It doesn’t matter your career or occupation, volunteering is a great home to be.
There are so many ways of volunteering, you can volunteer by donating money to charity homes or organizations, your gift, talent, or skill can be a form of volunteering, your time is also another way of volunteering. A great fact that should be known is “we all have something within our capacity to freely give out”. Volunteering doesn’t come with pay, it isn’t a forceful something but it comes with much more package.
Below are the top reasons why you should start volunteering today.
- New friends/contacts/opportunities,
- Sense of Fulfillment,
- Giving back to humanity,
Volunteering is like a household on its own, it houses different people from various walks of life with different aspirations, but a common goal brings you all together under the umbrella of volunteering.
So when you give yourself to volunteering, you get to meet such people, these people in turn can be the connection to climb a bridge to your destination. It also brings about opportunity, such opportunities could be life-changing or the upliftment you need. This opportunity could be in your career, financial aspect, etc.
2. Self Confidence:
Volunteering helps boost your self-confidence because it brings challenging tasks your way and opens you up to things you believe you can’t do or are difficult.
So many things I’ve believed are difficult, but volunteering has opened me up to another way around it and has erased the word “can’t” from my dictionary. When you volunteer, you are faced with so many things you haven’t done before, but it gives you the avenue to try it out and believe everything is achievable. You might be an introvert, but meeting different people in the household of volunteering gears you up to do more and do better as you don’t want to be left out.
3. Sense of Fulfillment:
There is this joy that comes with volunteering, not because you have it all, but because you’ve done something, because someone is living, smiling by what you’ve done. It gives the sense of fulfilment that even after you’re gone, what you’ve done is forever imprinted in the heart of someone. It gives the sense of fulfilment that you are not wasting away but doing something with your life.
4. Giving back to Humanity:
You might not have the whole world, the whole money, but there is something that has been deposited within you. Every day and time you meet with people, you get from them directly or indirectly.
Volunteering that which has been deposited within you is your way of showing you care, your way of saying thank you and appreciating humanity fit containing you. Nothing is a waste or too small to give in volunteering.
