Going Above and Beyond

We often sit back and watch those who go above and beyond there job duties. We may even ask ourselves how can someone be so nice to do more then what is expected? You may think that they were told to help. Or you may think they are just showing off. But know lets take another look or a personal look inside. Have you ever found yourself doing something to help someone that maybe you wouldn't do for someone. Doesn't that take something special.
Well I can honestly say someone who usually goes above and beyond on daily basis I do it because I want to help those who truly need it. I don't do it for the rewards or the praises I do it because I want to. I do it because if I don't who will. I worked with the elderly. Well one day the elevator weren't working so the assist. manger and I made sure that those who wanted to go to the dining room and those who couldn't make it we made sure that they had trays. When we were all done the assist. manger insisted that I sit down and eat lunch. Then a lot of the residents started to thank me be. Did I do it for that reason? No absolutely not. I actually get embraced when people shine the light on me for what I do. I do it for the people because they needed help. It does make me feel good to know I'm appreciated.
Well hopefully this help some realize why we do what we do.
