“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.” –Lao Tzu
This week I received a message on Facebook from my sister. When I opened it, she had included this award winning video from Thailand, “Giving is the best communication.” I was moved beyond words. This is the way I would like to live my life. The way, I hope, everyone would love to aim to be. I feel that the best gift you could give to anyone is the gift of kindness. Be kind to those around you. Go the extra length for a client. Smile at yourself in the mirror. Listen. When you listen you know the need of others and can serve them better. Think about the last time you were someone’s client and you were impressed by them. What was it about them or the transaction that impressed you? I bet you they were very good at meeting your needs because they were kind, they knew what you wanted and went above and beyond to give it to you. It is amazing how many complications you can avoid and how much you accomplish in all areas of your life when you listen.
