Chuck McDowell has continually steered Wesley Financial Group in the right direction – with a focus on helping others. It’s interesting to note that study after study has been conducted to show just how good helping others is for you. In an article published in the Pacific Standard titled, ‘More Evidence That Helping Others is Good For Your Well-Being’, writer Tom Jacobs explores a study conducted that shows how helping other people may have a positive effect on you: “The point has been made by everyone…If you really want to be happy, set aside your own desires and help others. But do we really believe it, and do we, in fact, behave accordingly
If your answer is a sheepish “no,” you might want to consider the results of a newly published study. It followed a diverse group of people for six weeks as they either focused on themselves or performed regular works of kindness and charity. Unlike their self-centered counterparts, those who gave of their time felt higher levels of positive emotions through the course of the study. What’s more, their “psychological flourishing” remained heightened for at least two weeks following its completion.” (Jacobs, 2016). In this article, author Tom Jacobs examines this study to see whether or not it helps to help others. At Wesley Financial Group, we’ve been fervently helping our clients seek relief from their timeshare woes. Studies like these show that we have been doing something all along that science backs up.
Studies like these show how people like Chuck McDowell exemplify what is being proven in science, that it benefits everyone to be helpful to others. At Wesley Financial Group, we do everything in our power to help our clients with their timeshare problems. We don’t shy away from difficult situations because it may cause us to do more work. We gladly accept challenges so that we can help out our clients. As the President & CEO of Wesley Financial Group, Chuck McDowell leads by example.

The article continues, “People striving for happiness may be tempted to treat themselves,” writes a research team led by psychologist S. Katherine Nelson of Sewanee: The University of the South. “Our results, however, suggest that they may be more successful if they opt to treat someone else instead.” The study, published in the journal Emotion, featured 472 participants (60 percent female) recruited from three different sources: a community sample; students at a California university; and online, via Amazon’s Mechanical Turk. Participants were given cash payments (and, for the students, course credits).” (Jacobs, 2016). As you can see, this study took into consideration a large number of participants, 472 to be exact. The large number of participants emphasizes that a good amount of data came from the study.
The study was conducted as follows: “Participants received a specific set of instructions once a week for four consecutive weeks. On each occasion, they were instructed to perform three actions the following day: “Perform three nice things for others,” such as visiting a sick acquaintance; “Perform three nice things to improve the world,” such as picking up litter, or donating used clothes to a charity; and “Perform three acts of kindness for yourself,” such as having a favorite meal, or spending time on a favorite hobby; or simply “Keep track of your activities.” (Jacobs, 2016).
What was the final result of all that data? “The key result: “The two types of pro-social behavior led to greater increases in psychological flourishing than did the self-focused and neutral behavior. “This is at least partly explained by the fact that helping others led to increases in positive emotions while doing things for oneself did not. The researchers speculate this is because the pleasures provided by self-oriented behaviors are either short-lived and/or partially negated by guilt. (In the case of these participants, the self-treats also tended to be solitary, which meant they did not experience the pleasure of interacting with others.)”(Jacobs, 2016). It’s interesting to see how helping others seemed to be the best way to receive positive emotions. At Wesley Financial Group, it’s our business to help others. We can see how this study makes sense, as it brings us great joy to truly help our clients out of their timeshare troubles.
Does it pay in the long term for us to be good to other people? The study continues to dissect whether this may have a long-term effect on people. “When participants checked in two weeks after the completion of their tasks, researchers found the elevated positive emotions of those who did good deeds had dipped a bit. Importantly, however, these participants “demonstrated a continued rise in psychological flourishing” at that point, even though they were no longer being prompted to perform in altruistic ways. “One possibility is that the positive emotions felt during the course of the study triggered an upward spiral of greater well-being,” the researchers write. “As people do nice things for others, they may feel greater joy, contentment, and love, which in turn promote greater overall well-being and improve (their) social relationships.”” (Jacobs, 2016).

That is because it is instilled within us to do everything we can for our clients. That includes helping others each and every way that we can. As stated earlier, Chuck McDowell leads by example.
