Life's Little Instructions - Treat Everyone You Meet Like YOU want to be Treated!

Treat Everyone You Meet Like You Want to Be Treated
Life's Little Instructions

It's the golden rule - hard to argue with this one.  Both Luke and Mark talked about this in their Biblical contributions.

You never know who you are dealing with.  You never know what they are going through.  You have no idea how what you will say or do will impact the person in your proximity.  Often, they are on a brink of some sort. Your positive word could be the one that push that makes the DIFFERENCE - it could be the one word or smile that moves them into a positive action they have been considering.  It COULD be the one word that keeps them from tipping over the brink.

 You can be a positive influence or a negative one - YOU CHOOSE.    But what if you choose negative?  What if your voice is the one that keeps them from making their next move?  What if your scowl is the last straw?  The consequences could quite literally be fatal.

If you can't get out of yourself - look at it this way - when you send good things around - Good things will come back to you!  If you are treating someone with the kindness and encouragement that you yourself desire- the environment in the room immediately improves.  Smiles are contagious - rarely will you give a smile that is not returned.  Want a smile?  Give one!
