Focus on the goodness around you
“Life becomes easier and more beautiful when we can see the good in other people.”
― Roy T. Bennett
We are surrounded by people everywhere. Our beliefs, our thoughts, our emotions and even the measure of our success are shaped by them.
In our lives, we should always be inclined to collect goodness from people around us. Think of this world as a supermarket. Every human that we meet is unique and has his/her own interests, specialties and flaws. Everyone has their own idiosyncrasies. Rather than being judgemental about them, we have to accept them as they are.
Our goal should be to collect the goodness inside each human being that comes into our lives and transplant it in ourselves. If we find a habit or behavior that is extraordinary and something can catapult success in our own lives, then we need to start cultivating it.
This applies to both kinds of people, the people that we love and the people that we utterly hate. There are certain behaviors in every human being that we can learn from. Even though you have a boss who is horrible, you can learn from her virtues such as her commitment and passion towards the work she does. Or perhaps a homeless person on the street can teach you how to be persistent and not care what other people think of him. We have to be open-minded. Think of yourself as a learner and every human being that you interact with as a teacher.
This human supermarket around us is diverse and there are tons of different behavioral patterns floating around us. But we are only interested in shopping goodness and helpful habits and behaviors.
As we bring all this goodness in ourselves, we become a person who is motivated and inspired, which in turn inspires other people. If we let the trivial and terrible things deter us, then we are not in control of ourselves and our lives. But when we are only focusing on the goodness, we end up being on a higher plane. What we focus on expands! Through Law of Attraction, we will attract more good things in our lives. And more people who are like us will come into our lives.
Even though the world coaxes and pushes us to see the most heinous things happening around the world, only focus on the amazing things happening around us. When we focus on the bad things, our focus will go towards the problems that we have, but when we embrace goodness, we are more inclined to find solutions quickly and effortlessly. Embrace the light of goodness and nurture it within you so that you are able to ignite this light in the people around you too.
