I thought today’s message was a good day to post my Daily Positive Points email. Below is the message and you can sign up for FREE at idontstink.com. These messages are delivered Monday thru Friday in the morning as a way to get your day started off on a positive note.
Compassion is a powerful tool that transforms lives. Rather than get disgusted, frustrated or angry at a fellow person, choose compassion instead. Say this right now: “Today, I will focus on seeing from the other person’s point of view.” The moment something happens that creates an instant reaction from you, stop yourself and repeat the statement again. When you do this, you are certain to be less likely to act in an unloving fashion.
Note: Today’s exercise comes from 7 Days to Inner Peace, Building Block 6: Compassion
“Three quarters of the miseries and misunderstandings in the world would finish if people were to put on the shoes of their adversaries and understood their points of view.” Mahatma Gandhi (Indian Philosopher, internationally esteemed for his doctrine of nonviolent protest, 1869-1948)
Believe it. See it. Love it!
