THE GOLDEN RULES
“ The value of a man should be seen in what he gives and not in what he is able to receive. “
– Albert Einstein
If you want to get more out of life, you must give more to life. No one can truly be rich without enriching the lives others. Billie Holiday said “ God bless the child who’s got his own. But wealth doesn’t mean a thing if it doesn’t translate into opportunities for others.”
When you meet people for the first time always show them kindness, in respectful of their– Gender, Background, Skin color and Religion. One of the deepest cravings of human nature is to be accepted by other people without judgment, Evaluation, or Criticism. When you look at other people and show them kindness and genuine smile, they feel happier about themselves. Their self esteem goes up. They feel more valuable and important. Expression of appreciation— from small nods and smiles all way through to cards, letters and gift can cause them to like themselves. As a result, by Law of Indirect Effort, they will like you more.
The simplest way to express appreciation is to simple say, ” Thank you.” The words ” thank you ” are deeply appreciated in any language, anywhere in the world. Each time you use those words, people brighten up, smile, and feel happy to be in your presence.
Every time you say thank you, it has an almost magical effect on the other person showing the kindness. It makes him feel important and far happier about being in your presence and helping you with anything you need.
Showing Kindness This Holiday season.
With the holiday season upon us, it’s easy to feel pressure that you aren’t spending enough, doing enough or otherwise keeping up with everyone else around you.
Every day we see people in need, both here in your country and elsewhere, and I feel like the spirit of giving is higher now than ever. It is my hope that the gift of giving back is something we’re going to see a lot of this holiday season. From sponsoring an immigrant family escaping a war-torn nation to lending a helping hand at a local soup kitchen, there’s always a way to give back. Some people are even asking for random acts of kindness in form of gifts this year. It’s a perfect way to spread true holiday cheer and a little bit of kindness can go a long way!
“No act of kindness, no matter howsmall, is ever wasted.” Aesop
It can mean the world to someone
Charities are in need of support andhelp throughout the year but even more during the winter when you live in a place like the united States. We are very fortunate to live in a city and to have a good life here, but we need to remember that the holidays can be very difficult for those in need. Even the smallest deed can mean so much.
And I just know we’re going to create memories this holiday season that will last a lifetime. If you want to check in with us as we go, subscribe to TO our blog below.
