I always try to live my life and treat people based on the perspective offered from one of my favorite quotes of all time...
It's a gem from the amazing A favorite quote from the amazing Maya Angelou, American poet, singer, memoirist, and civil rights activist.
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Today, I encourage you to make it your mission to make people feel good; even go out of your way to do it! Choose to be the kind of somebody that makes everybody feel like a somebody. And do it straight from the heart, unconditionally, expecting nothing in return.
It doesn’t take much - a smile, a kind word, a hug. As humans, we are hard wired for connection…connection to each other. And every day, we have dozens of opportunities to not only connect; but, actually lift someone’s spirits.
This quick video can be your quick reminder of this great quote anytime you need it:
If we could just remember that, every time we cross the path of another human being, we have an opportunity to make a positive impact and that, in turn, it will positively impact us and our day, oh that could be huge. I can promise you that all those, albeit small, deposits will add up quickly to become a gigantic win-win reward for you and those you come in contact with. I mean, why wouldn’t we do this? Why wouldn’t we come from a place of love and kindness in general? It doesn’t take much more, if any more energy that walking by someone without noticing them at all.
Make others feel good. This is how to live the inspired life!
Sending you much love,
