    That is not a sentence; it is a phrase. It is impossible to choose one of your words without the rest of the sentence.

    Where did this phrase come from?

    In that case, you could write "I have dedicated myself to helping others; all you have to do is ask."

    How about:

    Dedicated to helping others- all you have to do is ask.

    It could be enough to work, depending on the context.
