Before people can help you, or you become a helper, often you need to learn how to do so. Whether as mentioned before its learning how to be a taxi service driver, or a doctor.
You essentially will require skill in a particular field before you can then help and gift that to others. Many skills can be learnt through, courses through practice, sharing , reading or simply doing.
No matter where you are in the world, whether it be in Sydney Australia, Hong Kong China, Auckland New Zealand, or Bali Indonesia, people are always willing not only to help but also to offer you ways to become a helper yourself.
