Do you always have to be right?

Are you always right? Probably not. Think about it…

A topic we had in a blog a few weeks ago was to “stop being offended,” because if you’re always right, that would be boring, and then nothing would ever be different, would it? Nothing would be unique. It all would be what you thought was right and what you thought you should do… that’s really, really, boring isn’t it?

There’s no adventure in that.
There’s no fun in that.
There’s no new experiences to learn about…

There’s no expectations that you thought somebody else could meet, and that you wanted to meet those expectations as well… or you’re watching someone else’s journey and now you, yourself, can do what they’re doing now.

Think about that…

You don’t always have to be right. It’s okay. It’s okay to listen to somebody else and follow their advice on what to do. Your way isn’t the only way and you don’t have to be right all the time.

you don't always have to have the answer to everything

When was the last time you did a random act of kindness?

When have you done something nice for somebody, just because, with no reward… Think about it…

In our previous post we talked about positivity and how it can cleanse and make things better. What if you were to do something positive with no reward? Have you ever been to Starbucks when the person ahead of you buys everybody’s coffee, how great of a feeling is that? Or when you go to the grocery store and somebody bags your groceries… or if you see your next door neighbor, do you ever stop and say, “Hey, how are you doing?” …Honestly when was the last time you stopped and talked to someone for a couple of minutes and showed interest because you were listening to hear instead of only listening to respond. Simple things like that. What does that do? Because there is no reward involved. It’s a positive action!

So when was the last time you did that? When was the last time you bought the persons’ behind you coffee? Or the last time you sent flowers to a good friend, your spouse or coworker just because you know they’re having a rough week… Or how about the last time you brought your parents or sibling(s) out to eat just because or maybe bought them a card to show gratitude and how much you care about them?

Sometimes, we get caught up in our own lives and we forget to engage with people around us… when it cost nothing to do so! Spread positive action by the way you treat others, reward or not.
