The act of volunteering (including in your local community and online projects) has several perks that cannot be measured and it can help build a life of passion. Here are some of the perks that I have felt as a result of volunteering in several initiatives.
1. Meeting new people and building long-lasting friendships.
2. Gaining references for future employment possibilities.
3. Actively be a part of a small, intimate community to build something meaningful.
4. Polish existing skills.
5. Cultivate new skills.
All of us have different talents, skills, logical, and emotional faculties within us that can help us live our life to our full potential. Just like how we feel good after a full body workout, where most of our body muscles have been exercised, we feel good when we use the different skills and emotional capabilities we have in ourselves. If you feel unhappy or unfulfilled in your life, it’s highly likely that you are not exercising the different physical, logical, and emotional muscles within yourself.
