Going through the motions simply for the sake of doing so or because of guilt is fanfare. Are we casting good deeds unto others just for show or out of piety? Insincere acts of kindness are merely actions without a soul.
1. Analyze the reason behind the last time you choose to help someone?
2. Are you able to give assistance to some anonymously, simply walk away without recognition, and never seek credit for doing so?
Challenge: Think of five ways you can secretly assist someone in need. Pick one of those deeds from your list and make it a reality. Once you have completed this deed simply move on without telling anyone of your assistance to another.
