“You get the best out of others when you give the best of yourself.”
However, like attracts like, and when we behave like this we then attract “half-hearted efforts” from those around us. The cycle continues until we find ourselves with a weight on our shoulders and a heaviness in our hearts.
When we give the best of ourselves, regardless of anyone’s behavior, we enjoy a richer life. Likewise, we set an example for our children, friends and all we come into contact with. We encourage others to be at their best. When we live by the creed of always doing and giving our best, we know a personal peace that can’t be found through any quick-fix method. We know a personal
peace that is lasting.
Take a moment today to release any negativity you have been holding toward another person. Take the energy you have been focusing on their behavior, and redirect it to focus on doing and giving your best.
I focus all of my energies on what is productive, helpful and makes a difference.
