When you love helping others, you really do want to particularly help those who are in obvious need. But until they're not only ready to ask for help, but also prepared to take that first step towards change, you will be wasting your time.
I've wasted a lot of time over the years, and now I know that each individual is responsible for themselves. That is not as harsh as it sounds, because once you know that you can create the life you want, you feel powerful and fulfilled, and these are infinitely valuable gifts.
Imagine the difference between having to ask for help, and being able to take your choice from unlimited abundance ... Once you take that first step, you will find all the help you need to support your progress, and it will feel very different when you know you deserve it because you have the faith to reach your goal.
When you're stuck, your thinking is full of resentment for others who have more than you, and because it seems impossible to get more, you're resistant to change that is offered to you freely.
All it takes is a different thought process. Instead of criticizing those who have more, look on them as inspiration, and know that they are proof of abundance, and that you can have exactly the same.
You may have experienced giving someone a gift or service that you know will help them, but they refuse to accept it. Instead of feeling good, you will feel like you dropped a heavy rock into a bottomless well. If you continue to feel upset by this your energy will be drained. This lost energy could have been used for several others who would happily have received your help.
By showing those who are ready for change how good it feels to know they can access unlimited abundance, they will share their experiences, and by example their new sense of happiness will ripple out to those around them. You will be far more effective if you share your help with those who are receptive, because the word will spread far more quickly than if you spend hours on one person who is resistant to change.
Don't waste a second debating what you know to be true - always go with the flow, and watch the ripples grow.
