Go Ahead – Make Someone’s Day

“Why do we have to wait for special moments to say nice things or tell people we care about them?”  –Randy Milholland, author

I’ve read that we humans crave appreciation and acknowledgement. Think about it. We want to hear how much we’re loved, how nice we look, how much we matter and make a difference. So, as author Milholland says, why wait? Do it now. Send a note, an email, and better yet, tell them face to face. Go ahead – make someone’s day – right now.

Let’s Change the World

“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” – Jack Layton, Member of the Canadian House of Commons

Success from the Inside Out

“Success starts with the thoughts you think, then the choices you make and the actions you take. True success begins within!”  –Debbie Lousberg

 

I’ve been saying these words a lot lately on my Blog Talk Radio show when describing the importance of success starting within, not being defined by those material things we so often associate with it. Once you have the inner confidence, optimism, courage, appreciation…the color of the car, the size of the house, the amount of salary…become less and less important. Think – Choose – Act. Success is yours!

Choosing to Overcome

“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it.” –Helen Keller

We can choose to focus on the suffering in the world OR we can change our thinking and focus on the demonstrations of people overcoming it in amazing, numerous ways. It’s there. Everyday. It’s our choice to see it, appreciate it, and to look for more of it. Choose the way that frees you up to help others and rally for what’s good in life.

Leading by Example

“Your world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.”  Paulo Coelho

 

Actions speak louder than words, and the best leaders lead by example, and be the change you want to see – words we’ve all heard at one time or another. This quote by author Coelho caught my attention, saying a similar thing. We affect change, positive and negative, with our actions and by the example we set, not so much by the opinions we speak. Are your actions reflecting positive, uplifting, possibility-rich ways of being in the world? Are your opinions better left unsaid? Let your way of being in the world make an impact without words.

 

Thanks, C. for sharing this quote with me:)
