How to Be Useful to Your Society


You are not born to just occupy or be a waste of space rather, you are here to be useful and add value to your society. A lot of people are living and complaining about why they not being recognized, valued and respected in the society. Life is not lived by being idle but being creative and useful to the people you surround yourself with. Each day is given to you (us) to be useful to the communities we live in and be a value added and not subtracted.

Today is another opportunity given to you and me to discover what we can do to be a blessing to our little world. Wherever you are reading this short article, you are there to add value to that place. Be bold enough to let your presence be felt by doing something productive and meaningful to the place. Don’t be a take-away person in life but a valuable asset to your community and society that requires hard work, dedication and commitment.

Failing to be relevant in life only makes you a candidate to be relegated from the premiership of life. When you become useful in life, you will be noticed and your handwork will be appreciated and celebrated by the right people. Nobody likes to hang around lazy and frustrated individuals but people who have become useful to their communities. This is your chance to get up and be useful.

Use Your Time Wisely

Nothing great comes to anybody who does not work hard. Working hard is using your time to do something productively to bring about change and transformation in the lives of the people around you. Becoming useful and not useless demands your commitment to time and how much of that time you can use to do something to inspire others transform their life positively.


Don’t Be Lazy

To be useful and productive in life, you must learn to get involved into something that you like and volunteer your experiences. Life is not about money but about the value we add to it. Instead of being lazy and miserable like the bee, why don’t you get off your lazy bed and get out there to contribute community engagements that may help to change things within your area? No one is created to be lazy or idle not even the ant.

Getting involved and not being lazy only add to your reputation in the community you find yourself. You may not be paid for volunteering but guess what? You will learn new experiences and have new productive friends with the same mindset you have to create a beautiful world. Be involved and stop being lazing. Be ready to serve others with your gifts and talents. You can never be useful to anyone if you are a selfish individual. You are able to see growth and productivity in yourself when you volunteer yourself in serving others.

Be Yourself

Be yourself is commonly used as a phrase in our modern society but what does it mean in the context of being useful? In the context of being useful to your society, it means that you must discover who you really are and appreciate who you are and what you have to contribute to society. We are all created and have values.

Our ability to discover those values help us to live within the things we hold dearly to our hearts us individual. Therefore, we must learn to use the values we have to help shape the community or society we live in. The fact that others have different values and beliefs about how they use or become useful to their society does not stop you from sharing and contributing to the society. You are very unique and your society needs you. Don’t deny them your time, skills and values. From today, step out and be useful to your society.

Don’t shove yourself into any box due to fear and mockery from others. Step up and keep up to use whatever you are designed for to help transform, inspire, motivate, empower and change your society. Remember that, you are the most important person the world needs. Stand up to be useful and counted.

Have a fruitful week.
