A Random Act Of Kindness

If I were looking back from the end of my life and telling others what would help the world, what would make the biggest difference, I would ask each person to look around today and find a small "Random Act of Kindness" they could do that would help a stranger. I would say to go against your ingrained biases, suspend judgment, and think the best for someone who appeared to be on the other "side." Do something to help them without thinking of a return. I believe that when you envision the best traits for someone in need, they may…

The Importance of Smiling and 15 Other Life Lessons of Kindness

Be still in your life. Take time to listen to nothing but the sound of your own thoughts. Learn to like your own company. Share with others what you have. Even if it is just a dollar, share it. Listen with your heart. Do not be in a hurry to tell your story. Listen as others tell their story first. See what needs to be done, and do it. Do the dishes need to be washed? Yes? Then wash them. Are there dirty clothes on the bed? Yes? Put them in the hamper. Send a smiley to someone just because…

Creating Hope from Heartache

Barbara Marx Hubbard says that "Crisis is an evolutionary driver." Our world is certainly in crisis. I passionately believe the ultimate way to take part in the evolution of humankind is to wholeheartedly embrace our unique individual gifts and ferociously share them with others. The God within is calling out to all of us to contribute to each other in unconventional and profound ways. Rather than search for love, be love. Rather than wish the world would change, be the change. Honor your divinity within. Embody kindness, and let your generous spirit guide you. Cherish all your relationships, especially those…

Finding the Path to Happiness

The pursuit of happiness in most people's lives is seemingly elusive. In some respects, it almost seems that the concept of happiness has been left out of the evolutionary design. Leo Tolstoy said, "Joy can be real only if people look upon their life as a service, and have a definite object in life outside themselves and their personal happiness." I'm going to share with you a difficult part of my childhood in the hopes it illustrates that the path you choose is critical to the level of joy you experience. When I was 12, my family moved from New…

3 Compassionate Strategies for Living

I would share three bits of advice that have guided me and served me well in my life. 1. Always do your best. When you do your best, you will be proud of yourself. Being proud of yourself increases your self-confidence. I believe that self-confidence is an important key to success, in your career and in your life. Beware however: doing your best means that you are laying it on the line. When you do your best, you know that you have no one but yourself to blame if things don't work out like you want. 2. Treat everyone with…

The Importance of Being of Service to Others

"The greatest among you, shall be your servant." This has been one of the verses I have lived my life on and want to pass on to you. If you believe that you are created in God's image, and every other human is too, that will translate in every facet of your life. My son asks me, "Why do you do things for others?" I say to him, "Son, I am serving another of God's image bearers." I show him that service is an important part of life by exemplifying in my life. Our words can never speak more loudly…

How You Can Motivate Others Everyday

Believe in yourself! You are capable of doing anything you put your heart and soul into. I only choose to focus on projects I am passionate about and can dedicate 110% of my time and energy. Dream big and set high expectations for yourself. You are your best cheerleader, so make personal goals you want to achieve and focus on those. Write those goals down and periodically read them to see which ones you have already reached. Decide if you should alter or change any goals to better suit your ideals as you change. No matter what others may say…
