By focusing just on the externals in this world, one will not get very far in life. Our sages comment in Navi of ישעיה (Isaiah) that our externals are supposed to arouse our internals/help us focus spiritually. So, our materialism and humanly desires should help arouse our spiritual doings. We have to use our externals in the right way.

if someone has an external goal in life without any real meaning behind it and he questions why he is here and does not get an answer, sure to him, life is meaningless. A person must understand that hi is connected to the Creator up above. Read Mesilas Yesharim. Shana Tova!!

SHOW THAT YOU CARE
I WILL STRIVE TO IMPART A FEELING OF SELF WORTH TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT HAD MUCH TO BE PROUD OF, or BE HAPPY ABOUT, IN THEIR LIVES. JUST SHOWING A PERSON THAT YOU CARE ABOUT THEM IS A GOOD FIRST STEP. POINTING OUT THE GOOD QUALITIES WHICH THEY POSESS,(AND EVERY HUMAN BEING HAS GOOD QUALITIES) COULD VERY WELL PUT THEM ON THE ROAD TO HAPPINESS. I BELEIVE THIS IS A VERY HIGH FORM OF TZDAKA. ANY ONE FROM WHICH YOU WILL BENIFIT AT LEAST AS MUCH AS THE RECIPIANT. " SHANA TOVA"
