Joy & Service
I slept and dreamt
That life was joy.
I awoke and saw
That life was service.
I acted and behold,
Service was joy.
- Rabindranath Tagore
7 Ways to Make a Difference in the World Every Day
Make it a habit to:
1. Practice joy
...Because you can
...You deserve it. Find someone that needs a smile and give them that smile
once a day for the rest of your life, and like a ripple in a pond it will be carried onwards.
3. Be more involved in the world
...A life of legacy isn't about what you can get, its about what you can give. Invite, don't wait to be invited.
4. Be in awe
...Learn to be aware of all the wonder we have around us.
5. Respect people
6. Be the true you
...Go for it. No apologies. Focus on making a difference. Not on what people think of you. Positive
7. Speak without saying a word.
...A lot can be said without words. For me, gratitude and presence (present awareness) is generative silent speech.
