Do these sentences have the same meaning? If they haven't, please explain why.

1) He fell over himself to be as helpful as possible.

2) He fell over himself for being as helpful as possible.

Hi, Toaha—Sentence (2) is incorrect; it makes no sense at all. You can say (1), but I'd prefer this: "He fell over himself trying to be as helpful as possible."
