47 - Roses

Ask yourself a question: What good deeds have you performed through the course of this day?

The quality of your life will come down to the quality of your contribution.

There’s an Ancient Chinese Proverb that goes like this: "A little bit of fragrance always clings to the hand that gives you roses." 

When you work to improve the lives of others, you indirectly elevate your own life in the process.

You must realize that, just as you entered the world with nothing, you are destined to leave with nothing. This being the case, there can be only one real reason for your being here: To give yourself to others and to contribute in a meaningful way.

Compassion and daily acts of kindness make life far richer. Take the time to meditate every morning on the good you will do for others during your day.

Here are some exercises for you to explore:

  • Use sincere words of praise to those who least expect it.
  • Offer gestures of warmth to friends in need.
  • Generate tokens of affection to members of your family.
  • Keep friendships in constant repair.

And here are some thought-provoking techniques to keep your drive:

  • Practice daily acts of kindness.
  • Give to those who ask.
  • Cultivate richer relationships.

Last, but not least, I offer you my deep respect and appreciation for your presence in my life, feedback, comments, likes and shares. You make me better, stronger, inspired, motivated and productive. Thank you.

With love and respect, see you next week!
