I have come across many instances when people think that they are above all. To make others feel the same they make them do things what they want them to do. They make them say something bad, do something bad etc. And, they are the people who are negative in the eyes of almost 99.9% of the people (of course, the 1% are they).
Now think of people who do good to others such as people who do social service. They help people. Definitely they don’t get noticed in the eyes of the public for what they do. But what they do for the people who they intend to do, such as helping the poor, they become Gods in their eyes.
Now you know the difference between these people, don’t you? So, who are you, the earlier or the latter? Well, it doesn’t matter who you are, because you can change it anytime and anywhere. In this article I’ll show you how.
Treat others as you want them to treat you
You want people to treat you nicely; you want them to praise you. But it doesn’t happen. Why? Because you are not doing the same to them. Feel the same way for others as you want them to feel for you. If you feel that others are smaller, lesser valuable than you, then they will think the same.
If you feel that others are greater, and equal to you, then they will think the same for you. And apart from this you will also feel peace inside you, because you don’t have any ill thoughts for others, instead you have good and positive thoughts. They will reflect back to you in reality. They will turn up as good instances happening to you.
For example, if a person has ill thoughts for his colleagues, in this case bullies, then others also have the same for him. But they are good in their emotions. They feel good with their friends. While the bully, on one hand shows that he’s very powerful, he gets scolding from teachers, parents, neighbors etc.
On the other hand, a person feels good for others. He treats them as important as God himself. He makes them feel good, people like him. And guess what? He may not get good grades, but he’s a true role model in everyone’s eyes. And because of this, he now scores good grades. And to put the cherry on the cake, other people, such as teachers, parents, neighbors etc. like him.
These examples, as you would have thought while reading them, are true in reality. That’s why they are called examples, duh! ;)
The second this is to be grateful for everything in your life. Well, as other books and authors will say you that be grateful for this and that. I will tell you to feel grateful for only one big thing that you have. Try it now.
I said be grateful for one thing that you really, really love.
How does it feel? Great, right? Yeah, it indeed is! Now as you feel grateful for that thing, be grateful for another thing, that you like. May be for the kind of relationships you have or anything you like. It doesn’t necessarily mean that what I am saying to be grateful about you grateful about it. It can be anything. Repeat this anytime of the day you feel like. And you will see your life transformed.
