While you are still waiting to find an easy way (or a perfect time), someone else is already getting results because they decided making progress is more important than making excuses.

There's still a place...

There’s still a place…

There’s still a place for decency. For kindness. For respect and tolerance.

There’s still a place for integrity and generosity. And goodwill towards others.

There’s still a place where we can inspire hope and build the kind of world we’re proud to live in.

And it begins in each of us.

There's still a place...

Be the one.

Ideally, we could all go through life without the need for any support other than our own. But the fact is, having the support of — and being encouraged by — just one person can make even extreme challenges much easier to bear.

Be that one person for as many people as possible.

Who it starts with

Kindness. Love. Respect. Compassion. Tolerance.

While you’re waiting for other people to put in the effort to show what you wish there was more of in the world, other people are doing the same — waiting.

It doesn’t start with them — it starts with you.

Seek to exchange value, not just take it

People have a nasty habit of greedily taking anything of value that they can get for free – even if it’s at the expense of the person or company giving it. And in return for the value they get, they often do nothing.

Don’t be one of them.

Exchange value, don’t just take.

Don’t let the value you get for free from someone or something stop with you.

Strive to keep value in motion by paying it forward and exchanging value wherever you can.

Mockery vs encouragement

Mockery vs encouragement

If you see someone putting in a genuine effort to do their best — even if what they’re doing falls short of your standards — consider giving them honest encouragement.

Laughing at or mocking people who are doing their best says a lot about a person (and it ain’t good).

Be kind.


Mockery vs encouragement

If you can help ease someone’s burden or do something that makes a person’s day better, please don’t hesitate.

Patience. Smiles. Laughter. Compassion. Meaningful connections. Touch a life. Show what it means to be a good human.

Not just today. Every day. That’s kindness.
