How Do You Want To Be Treated?
This Week's Simple Tip
Years ago, a hairdresser I frequented shared a story that has been a guiding light in my life ever since. She shared the story of one of her clients, an elderly gentleman, who always appeared to be happy and satisfied with life. His reply when she asked him what his secret was to such contentment: living life by The Golden Rule. Unfamiliar with the rule, I looked it up as soon as I got home to find: The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one's self would wish to be treated. Check out this week's clip for a heart-warming example. Interestingly, not referring to it as such, this was exactly the way I was brought up. And thanks to the hairdresser's story, this way of upbringing carried on with my sons who know it as The Golden Rule. I can only imagine how much different our world would be if everyone lived their life by this rule!
This Week's Focus
This week, make an extra effort to treat those around you the way that you would want to be treated. While we are more inclined to do it for those we know, try to make a difference in the life of someone you don't know!
