The real secret is...the ones who help others enjoy a healthy dose of positive energy feedback.
I often say making the film Lost in Woonsocket revealed that life secret to me. In the beginning, we were making a documentary TV series about helping people. Regardless of whether our help worked, the team and I began to notice how amazing we felt inside. The feeling just kept building and building. It was pure energy.
Personally, I was left with a full heart and content to a degree that I had never felt before. Energized, empowered and proud. Yes, we were all frustrated that the good deeds were not always the cure for those we met, but somehow the act itself changed us. Fortunately, all of our brains are wired to respond in a positive way when reaching outside of ourselves.
Perhaps this is why firefighters are generally perceived as happier than cops.
