Happy Monday My Friends,
As we approach the half way mark for the year I want to start June’s encouragement with our reputations.
“If you will think about what you ought to do for other people, you character will take care of itself. Character is a by-product, and ay man who devotes himself to its cultivation in his own case will become a selfish prig.” (Woodrow Wilson)
To develop our character we should first aim to do right by others. Being good to others is an action; becoming a good person is a result of this action. If our goal is merely to appear good in the eyes of others, we are acting selfishly. And little good comes from this.
NOTE TO SELF:
I will devote myself to helping others and not worry about whether I am perceived as a good person. My character will take care of itself if I take care of others.
Act without expectation. (Lao Tzu)
Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love. (Lao Tzu)
Often when helping a co-worker, customer or friend with a situation we may not always receive the praise or recognition we feel we deserve. That does not mean it was not appreciated. We should always do what we feel is the right thing regardless, as it is building our own personal character, and that my dear friends is all the praise and recognition we should need.
Wishing everyone a wonderful week.
