Thought for the Day ~ By Lisa Scott Life Coach

Always do your best…… kind and generous in spirit with those who cross your path. You grow to the extent that you give out.  By giving you create more room for you to grow on the inside.  By making a conscious effort to leave people better than you find them, you become a better person one who is focused on what they can give, not what they can get from every situation. A smile and genuine caring and kindness can create magic in a person’s day even if they began that day with a little sadness or frustration. 

Instead of mirroring another person’s bad mood, give them your smile and a sincere thank you and you will change their perspective on the day. One of the most powerful principles of momentum is to be on the lookout for opportunities to invest in those around you.  Your life will be richer if you make the decision to look for ways to help others, to invest in them, and to genuinely help them live their greatest life.

Robin Sharma said “Some people laugh at the notion of being nice and decent and noble.  “That’s a sign of weakness” I hear, nope.  It’s a sign of strength.  Soft is hard.  It’s easy to put yourself first.  It’s easy to get angry when someone disagrees with you.  It’s easy to complain, or condemn or take the path of least resistance.  What takes guts is to stand for something higher, to behave greater and to be of service to others.  Grace under pressure.  That’s what separates leaders from followers.  It’s that beautiful quality that inspires others and reflects a well developed spirit.”
