My good peeps. I apologize for the couple days without blogs. Been on the road trying to fight crime. We continue to talk about adding value to other peoples lives. For when you find yourself adding some type of value to people every day, life has fulfillment.
"One of the greatest diseases is to be nobody to anybody."Mother Teresa
Think about that quote for a little bit. It’s powerful! Selfishness=unhappiness.
2. To add value to others, you must truly care about them– there are several people in this world, and even some that I interact with quite often that claim they care about others, but then their actions completely go against their claim. Where is your heart in the decisions that you make? Do you make decisions to bless your life? Or do you make decisions to give more opportunity to the ones around you, which will inevitably end up coming full circle anyway? Where do your intentions lie?
3. To add value to others I must value what others have done for me– “Gratitude is the motivation for doing good for others, and a positive attitude is what drives that action. Gratitude fuels us to want to do good for others.” Have you ever met someone who thinks that nothing good every happens to them? They really do believe that no one ever gives them a chance, trusts them, chooses them, or gives them a break? These people live very selfish lives. When you are living that way, how can you live a life of significance? Count your blessings, people. Name them freakin one by one. Count your many blessings and see what so many people have done. And remember, “You have to count your blessings before you can be a blessing.”
As does many other things in life, I believe that adding value to others lives goes back to your purpose. If your purpose is about money and nothing else, you are going to live a selfish, and therefore unhappy life. If your purpose is centered around lifting people, making people proud, teaching people, and influencing people’s lives, I believe that money will never be too tight, and happiness will never be greater. You are probably thinking that changing people’s lives is something that takes forever. I disagree. My goal every day is to write a blog that might hit close to home with even one person. One person who will decide to make their life better because of it. My goal is to go to a gas station and try to brighten that clerks day with a smile and a “How is your day going?” Changing the world doesn’t have to be a televised, huge event. It comes with simple acts of kindness and genuine desires.
Where do your desires lie?
Desiring to share happiness, Cram
