I am sure you have heard it in some online training and/or if you have watched YouTube videos or read blog posts about working on your niche and offering people value. It’s kind of giving and not so much of an AHA type thing.
But what is really amazing is when the Epiphany really sets into your brain. Suddenly when you attempt to help someone, or just be nice to them when they are having a bad day, it seems like everything else in your world gets a little better! And the more you do it the better it gets. I’m no saint by any means! But I’ve been really working hard on practicing what I preach, and there have been some really cool stuff happening because of it!
Let’s forget online business for just a minute and just take into account what people are going through around us. Maybe their marriage is breaking down, their health or the health of a loved one is in jeopardy. Maybe they lost their job and don’t know how they are going to make
the ends meet, or feed their family. There are thousands of possible scenarios that people go through every day!
Is a kind word to someone that difficult ? This person may be having a very bad day of their life and a random act of kindness or a kind word of encouragement can completely change their day!
Let me tell you what I experienced the other day, I was out shopping and was hungry so I went over to McDonald’s – I know not very healthy but easy – because it was along the way to my shopping. As ordered my meal, I noticed somebody not sure who it was, outside of the restaurant.
I had my meal and a side salad – just to be a little healthy :). Didn’t finish the salad so I asked for a package and put my half eaten salad in and left out the door. As I was about to go to my car I turned and an elderly homeless woman in her 70s, I assume, locked eyes with me. and I
walked over to her and asked if she was hungry. She reached out to me, thinking I was going to give her my leftover salad.
I told her to come with me and let’s get you something to eat. I told her to pick anything she wanted for it was my treat. She got 2 small burgers and a medium Coke. I asked her she could have anything she wanted, you know there were better burgers other than small burgers. That was all she wanted and was appreciative of the treat. I said goodbye, gave her a hug and I left the restaurant. She followed me out and asked for $3.00 for bus ticket back home.
I knew the district and her place was about 10 miles away. I told her to sit in my car, and I drove her home. She was just so happy and gave me a big hug when I left her. This little help completely changed my day, and suddenly my day became much more positive. I just had a great feeling in my body for the rest of the day, and I smiled a lot more to the people I met that day. So little effort for having a great day 🙂
If you don’t believe me, put a post-it note on your fridge to remind you to do something nice at least once a day this week and watch what happens! I’m not saying that you should make someone’s mortgage payment! Much less can do it. I’m saying, hold the door for someone and tell them to have a great day. Pay the toll for the vehicle behind you and tell the booth operator to tell them to have a great day! Random acts of kindness are, well, random!
I know the popular thought process is that you are receiving good Karma. However, you want to take it is up to you. In my world, it’s simply the golden rule in action!
Have an amazing week 🙂
