The Essential Tool for Success
Compassion is essential to your success. The ability to look at the world around you and see its beauty is routed in that essential virtue. If you don’t have it, you are truly blind to the reality of nature. We are all creatures of compassion in our heart of hearts.
Success starts as a thought. Thought gives rise to an action that action begets other actions. Together, thoughts and actions create the reality of our lives and is an imprint of how we view our world. A life without compassion is necessarily narrow in focus, and this can lead to tunnel vision. This myopic view may cause you to fail to see the opportunities around you for abundance.
The first step towards being compassionate is to stop looking at dealings with others as a means to an end and instead think of each and interaction as an end in itself. It doesn’t have to be a big or elaborate expression, it can be something as simple as greeting each and every person you encounter with a smile.
Leave your ego behind. Having a large ego means that you place a high importance on yourself and your needs, regardless of the cost to others. This, again, leads to shortsightedness and to missed opportunities for growth. Focus instead on how you can help others and your satisfaction with the state of your life will multiply exponentially. With satisfaction comes the freedom to take the opportunities for success, wealth and abundance as they come to you. An open heart and mind seeks and often finds.
To see how this works for yourself, think of the successful people you know. I’ll bet you dimes to dollars that they are humble, content, and they are kind in nature. I’ll bet that these successful people in your life didn’t achieve what they have through exploitation. Instead, they achieved it by treating each and every person with dignity and respect.
The Golden Rule is never more apt that in it is when achieving success: treat others as you would like to be treated and you can never go wrong. Quantum theory proves that this is the case: like begets like. Act in a positive and kind way and it will be returned to you in abundance.
