How to make a difference in other people's life
I have always asked myself the following question: What is true succes in life? After reading a lot of books on self improvement, i know that succes means living a meaningful life. Sharing your gifts with the world and giving without expecting something in return. What are your gifts? What do you love to do everyday all day long while not becoming bored? What gives you joy and meaning in life?
Add valueIf we want people to respect us, then we must add value to their lives. There are many ways we can add value. Create something someone can use. Inspire someone to take action. Lend a helping hand. Show someone how to do something or give them your full attention. There are more ways to add value to other people's live. Find your own way. What is your gift. What is your contribution? No matter how you contribute, it's important to add value in an authentic way without a motive. If you add value to other people's live, you feel an amount of joy and happinnes. Other people will also respect you more. You will find true meaning in life.
A joy shared is a joy doubled. Thomas Jefferson once said "a candle loses nothing when it lights another candle". Many people don't think that way. They believe that sharing means losing. I don't think that is true. If you have an idea, share it; you can always come up with another one. If you have money, give some of it away; you can always make more. You get from life what you expect. You can hoard what little you have and receive no more. Or you can give what you have, and you will be rewarded with abudance. Your attitude makes the difference. If you help others you help yourself. What are your talents and gifts? Do you share it with other people. Develop a attitude of kindness toward everyone. I am convinced that when people's motives are pure and they genuinely desire to add value to others, they cannot help others without receiving some benefit. (John C. Maxwell) The return may be immediate, or it may take a long time, but it will occur. Invest in others, and like a boomerang, it will come back to you, sometimes in a most unexpected way.
