People will always remember how you make them feel
We all want to make a difference during our lifetimes, to leave a legacy after we have completed our time on this planet. Making a difference is not just about volunteering to assist people that come from a less advantaged background than you do. You should shift your thinking away from seeing making a difference as an event or something you must do, making a difference is a new way of life, a new way of conducting yourself. This shift will allow you to make a difference, every day in your own unique way, during every moment.
Every one that you come into contact with on a daily basis can be either positively or negatively affected by your presence. As you go through your day you are both the cause and effect of many different situations that will develop in the future. From a very simplistic perspective, you are either someone that will create solutions or create challenges for the people in your environment.
Think about your life, past and present, everyone you have had contact with, either helped you to find solutions and contentment in your life or they caused you to encounter challenges, which you had to solve. People are either the cause of contentment and joy, where they energise you and add value to your life or they drain your energy and bring you challenge. I hear you say that there are also neutral people that do not affect you at all. My experience has shown me that the only difference between recognising someone as a value adder or an energy sapper is the amount of time you spend with them. After spending enough time with anyone they will fall into either of the two categories.
As you to look back at your own life again, how did these same people perceive their interaction with you? Were you someone that added value to their lives or were you the person that sapped their energy and caused them discomfort? If you cannot answer emphatically that you are someone that adds value to everyone around you, it is time to make a few small changes to the way you think and present yourself to the world.
To begin the process of changing the attitude you are projecting to the world, try to introduce these few simple ideas into your life:
- Wake up every day and start your day in a state of grace and gratitude.
- Aspire to encourage and assist as many people as possible throughout your day.
- Try to only make deposits of energy and genuine authenticity into the lives of everyone you come into contact with.
- Smile as often as possible and be willing to share your grace with everyone around you.
Your ability to share any of the above with everyone around you is limitless. This time management course will show you that as you begin to give freely and you commit to make deposits of energy and grace into the lives of others, you will become the recipient of incredible blessings yourself. You can very quickly become a person of value and someone that can make a real difference to the world. All that is required is a small shift towards grace and a willingness to try to make a real difference to everyone you touch in your environment.
Whatever gets measured gets done. So set yourself a goal each day to begin spreading your blessings and grace. Stay committed to keep doing this until your attitude of grace and blessing becomes an integral part of who you are. The person that will benefit the most from this new attitude is YOU!!!!
