Do Good To Feel Good

Its so easy to forget this one: doing good makes you feel good. Being kind to a co-worker not only enables and elevates them - it lifts your mood. Adding outrageous value to a customer and making them feel like the VIP that they are not only makes them your goodwill ambassador (spreading word of your services like a virus) - it unlocks a wellspring of positive sensations inside of you. Going the extra mile for your loved ones not only leaves them better than you found them - it helps you feel connected to them (which promotes happiness and fulfillment).

Not only do good things happen to good people (life's got this really fair accounting system), but people who do great things get to feel great feelings. This isn't some “soft” idea (and if ideas like these are so “soft” why are they so very hard to do?; anyone can be cranky or unkind or mediocre. Being positive and kind and excellent takes a lot more discipline and power). No, this thought I'm sharing isn't “soft” at all. It's a practical, powerful insight that will lead you to real results - in your business life. In your personal life. And in your inner life.

Do good for people. Do good work. Think good thoughts. And be good to yourself. Good things will happen. Okay, I'll stop using the word “good”'s just that it feels so...good. Oops-did it again. Sorry. :)
