If you have ever wondered why we are here today, this quote answers that question. Helping others is my personal motto and was passed down to me by my late father. He was a humble servant in that he not only helped others but he did it anonymously. That is the essence of selflessness; helping others and not searching out any accolades.
Kindness and helping others are inextricably linked. Kindness is defined as the quality of being friendly, generous and considerate. It is such a simple concept and yet so elusive in today’s society. It is easier to be kind than to be mean spirited yet we all slip and forget what’s most important in our lives.
This quote is reflective of what ruins more relationships than any other reason. My brilliant 88 year old mother once told me that ” you can’t love someone else if you don’t love yourself ” And this is easier said than done. We are all self critical because society dictates certain markers of success. However those markers are flawed. Success markers are . . .
- Stopping and talking to a homeless person
- Taking the time to talk with and actually listen to a young person
- Spending time with a friend who is down on their luck
- Volunteering at a senior residence and spending time with an elderly person
This will enhance your life and enhance the relationship that you have with yourself.
As you can tell, I am a big fan of Anthony Robbins and love this particular quote. If you want to achieve success you must take action. Success of course is defined by you. It’s not about money or materialistic things, it’s about what your goals and objectives are in your life.
