Power Up Passages

What Goes Around Comes Around.
April 16, 2003.

"Kind words do not cost much, yet they accomplish much."
Blaise Pascal

It has been said time and time again that some of the best things in life are free. I couldn’t agree more. After all, how much does a kind word, a pleasant smile or a pat on the back cost any of us? Not a penny. Yet who among us doesn’t love to receive these priceless gifts from others?

Doesn’t it make sense that our family, friends and acquaintances cherish these thoughtful acts of appreciation as well? You’ll discover that as you shower these heartfelt displays of genuine appreciation on those all around you, you’ll have even more to give away. Acts of kindness and gratitude are endless gifts that keep on giving.

"A kind heart is a fountain of gladness, making everything in its vicinity freshen into smiles."
Washington Irving

Who doesn’t like being around people who maintain an ever present upbeat approach to life? These wide eyed optimists, who routinely greet you with a cheerful hello, brighten the day of everyone they touch. When you ask them how they’re doing, they’ll quickly tell you "FANTASTIC — and getting better!" You believe them because you simply have no choice.

They say it with such enthusiasm and excitement, their zest and zeal for living drawing you in like a powerful magnet, that you suddenly start feeling better yourself. Then, before you know it, you’ve been swept up into their euphoric state of mind. Just being in the same room with people who love life this much is a special privilege indeed.

These ebullient individuals, who bring happiness to the world around them, are truly precious gifts from God. Marcel Proust said, "Let's be grateful for those who give us happiness; they are the charming gardeners who make our soul bloom." Simply stated, by making us feel better about ourselves, our lives and those around us, they make our world a better place.

"Courtesies of a small and trivial character are the ones which strike deepest in the grateful and appreciating heart."
Henry Clay

Why not decide right now to become that shining beacon of hope, happiness and cheer for those around you? By regularly showing others how much they mean to you and that their efforts are truly appreciated, you can start making the world a better place one person at a time. William James said that "the deepest principle in human nature is the craving to be appreciated." When you let someone know that you appreciate them, you offer that individual the best gift you could ever give.

"Appreciation is a wonderful thing: It makes what is excellent in others belong to us as well."

As you start spreading appreciation, happiness, kindness and gratitude around to everyone you’re privileged to meet each and every day, you’ll find some amazing revelations taking place in your life. Each day will be even better than the day before, as your life takes on a heightened sense of direction, meaning and purpose.

You’ll begin enjoying more happiness, fulfillment and tranquillity than you ever dreamed was possible — as the life you’ve always imagined comes to life right before your eyes. As you continue to give more and more of yourself to others, more and more good fortune will find its way into your life.

After all, what goes around most certainly comes around as well.

The Bottom Line: You’ll discover that the more you give away, the more you’ll get back in return.
