“You can’t live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you.” – Coach John Wooden
I’ve found the day to be a success when I make it to the end of it, but how much of a success was it if I was unwilling or did not give something positive to someone else.
Although it is a difficult challenge when presented, we must always strive to be considerate of others. The profit of kindness dividends changes more than the one who receives, but the one who gives too. Even when they do not deserve your kindness it’s always best to give it, because your gesture may be the very thing that brings success to their day as it will your own.
So as frustrating it is to politely communicate with a negative, difficult or even sour or close-minded person I respectfully suggest you give it try. Before you know it you will find yourself with an unlikely friend instead of an assumed enemy.
At the center of the concept of considering others is “Life’s most persistent and urgent question is, What are you doing for others?” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
