In ‘Think and Grow Rich’ by Napoleon Hill, he states that you can have whatever you want in life, as long as you DO NOT violate the rights of others.
You cannot take advantage of others without also hurting yourself in some way. You cannot help others without also lifting up your own life.
The connection is strong and impossible to break. When you give your best to life each day, you experience the best that life has to offer.
When you think and act respectfully, you are respected. When you offer real, unconditional love, you are loved.
In each moment, when choosing what to say, what to do, what to value, what to discard and what to work for, remember this: We are all connected. We are one.
Value, appreciate, honor and make the most of that connection. What is good for all of life is very good for you.
This day presents you with a magnificent opportunity that you have never had before. You can take all that you are, all that you have learned and experienced up to this point and use it to move your whole world forward.
Every good and valuable thing you do for life makes the world a better place to be. Every time you lift up others, your own experience of life is made more fulfilling.
This day and all its possibilities will soon pass. But people will always remember how you made them feel.
What is your intention and focus? Will you contribution be positive or negative?
Make a real and lasting wonderful contribution to life today. Choose to make the most out of this day, because you may not pass this way again.
Life is short and our time is so precious.
‘Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.’
‘It is one of the most beautiful compensations in life that…….that no one can sincerely try to help another without also helping themselves.’
Ralph Waldo Emerson
