If you really think about this honestly, you will see that the only time we ever get angry, frustrated, sad, or any negative feelings, is when we don’t “GET” what we want. When I’m giving love… I don’t get frustrated. When I’m giving respect… I don’t get angry. When I’m giving compassion… I don’t get sad. But when I don’t “GET” love, respect or compassion… that’s a different story. When I think about what I’m not getting… I get upset; when I think about giving… I get happy. The goal for today: give “FREELY” of myself… & get happy! Have a great day everybody!
I have found that the key to happiness is helpfulness to others. I used to want to solve my problems so “I” could be happy, and to be honest… I didn’t really care if you were happy or not. Then one day something finally occurred to me; the reason I never felt happy, was that I didn’t care about you and your happiness. My blatant disregard for your well-being was the root cause of my unhappiness. What a strange paradox this life is! The goal for today: know that true happiness can only come from giving happiness & love out freely to others… try it & see! Have a great day everybody!
If I’m being completely honest with myself, I must admit, that giving always feels better than getting. Of course it’s nice to get a compliment, a gift, a promotion… & who doesn’t like to receive love. But anyone who has honestly & genuinely given any of these things out freely to others, KNOWS which one really feels best. Getting feels good for a little while, but giving brings about a far more lasting sense of happiness, peace & freedom… when it’s genuine. The goal for today: focus on giving & let the getting take care of itself! Have a great day everybody!
“A man cannot help himself except by helping others” ~Unknown. I was once told that I couldn’t help others until I helped myself first… but this quote would suggest the opposite. Every human being is born with the ability to GIVE Love & therefore… we are ALL qualified to help others. I may not be able to transmit certain information to you because I don’t possess it, but that doesn’t mean I can’t help you at all. The goal for today: help someone in whatever way you can… because helping others is the ONLY way to truly help yourself! Have a great day everybody!
“If I love you, what business is it of yours” ~Goethe. This is one of the most important points in the history of humankind! Years ago, I broke off a relationship & people thought I was crazy. They said… “She is attractive, smart, treats you right & has a good job. Why would you leave her?” The answer is because I didn’t love her. Love isn’t about what your significant other has to offer you, it’s about how you feel about them… PERIOD! If I feel good about giving to you, then your looks, your pedigree & your credit score don’t matter. The goal for today: know that real Love is about how you feel about someone… not what you can get from them! Have a great day everybody!
Bill Wilson, a co-founder of AA, tried to help a lot of people get sober & it didn’t work. One day, when he was just about to throw in the towel, he said to his wife “I give up! This isn’t working… none of these guys are staying sober”… his wife replied “But you are Bill.” Here we are… 83 years later & that statement by Lois Wilson is still saving lives. The person receiving help may or may not get & stay well… but the person giving help will ALWAYS triumph, over any & all difficulties. The goal for today: don’t forget this Master Law of Life… giving is far more powerful than getting! Have a great day everybody!
The best (actually the ONLY) way to be surrounded by people that lift you up… is to be the type of person that lifts others up. The Law of Attraction says we will be surrounded by people that are like us… or are at least trying to be like us. That means I can’t be a bad person & expect a bunch of good people to flock to me. If I want to attract good people to me… I must first strive to be a good person myself. The goal for today: be the type of person that lifts others up… focus on being a “liftor”, rather than a “liftee”! Have a great day everybody!
