Do you really want to be happy? I can hear you saying Yes! of course, everyone will say a big Yes, but the gateway to happiness makes some of us frown. The gateway to happiness is by giving to others. Think about this:
Some of us may feel that, if we give too much, our generosity, will be taken advantage of by others. This is true, and a few very selfish individuals can possibly perceive your good intentions as weakness.
However, people who seek to take advantage are in the minority. To quote Gandhi, “We must be the change, we wish to see in the world.” Think about it, change has to start somewhere, so why not start with you and me, right now?
Try it, and you will see, what some call, “karma,” the law of cause and effect. It works like this: For every action, there is a reaction. Let’s make sure the reactions to our actions are good ones.
Danny Thomas said, “All of us are born for a reason, but all of us don’t discover why. Success in life has nothing to do with what you gain in life or accomplish for yourself. It’s what you do for others.”
Share everything and you will achieve a legacy of kindness. Share nothing and people will do their best, to forget you. When my life is over I will only leave memories, in the minds of others, and I want them all to be good ones.
So, how much should you give? It can start with, “heartfelt”, kind words, a note, a card, offer to help someone out or even a flower. You will find that your gifts or donations won’t make you poor. As a result of this, you will see most people, naturally, return kindness to you. Am a witness to this always.
You should also take the time to be polite to all of the people who perform services for you, every day. Many people do not bother to say hello to the maid, to their security, parking attendant, shopkeepers or service clerk.
Once you do, you may even learn some things from them, and you would be surprised how many of them will go out of their way to give you good service. Don’t ever try to feel big or superior to people, you never can tell.
If you establish sincerity and trust where ever you go, you will be loved by your fellow man. It is really that simple. As the saying goes, “A person’s true wealth is the good he or she does in the world.”
