How Will The World Feel When You Die?
This Week's Simple Tip
In the end, how successful you were no longer matters. What makes a difference is the effect you had on others. The easiest way to do this is by sharing your gifts/talents with others throughout your life. There is no denying it ... we all have many :) They are those things that come naturally to us. They can take the form of being good with numbers, easily expressing gratitude and compassion, being creative or athletic, a wonderful communicator, etc. If you love to play the guitar or to cook, hone your skills by playing or preparing a snack at a senior center or for some event. Or encourage an aspiring artist with a thank you note for sharing their chalk-art on your driveway. The importance of sharing our gifts is brought to life in this short video (get your tissues out). It personifies an Indian proverb that teaches "When you were born, you cried, and the world rejoiced. Live your life in such a manner that when you die, the world cries and you rejoice."
