What if all we focused on was making other lives better because we were part of it?
I was deeply moved by this quote by John O’Leary when I read it recently, and I cannot stop thinking about it.
“The goal of our lives is not status or ease, but leading, serving, elevating & inspiring in such a manner that other lives are better because we were part of it.”-John O’Leary
If you are like me, there are so many things that you feel powerless about right now. One thing that is well within our control is how we interact with the people right in front of us.
How do I treat people I don’t agree with?
How do I treat people who are taking their feelings out on me?
How do I treat people I do agree with?
How do I treat people who look at the world differently than I do?
When we focus on helping others feel better because of our presence, regardless of the circumstances, we feel positive and powerful. We may not agree, but we can always communicate with love and empathy at the forefront.
When it comes down to it, so often the most important things in our lives are in our control.
