The Secret to Success - Kindness

Take a look at these simple but powerful words from the Dalai Lama,

“Kindness and a good heart are the foundation for success in this life, progress on the spiritual path, and the fulfillment of our aspirations. Our need for them is not limited to any specific time, place, society, or culture.”

Kindness and a good heart, who doesn’t have these?  We all have a heart and this heart of ours is a great source of good and kindness right? By knowing this, we will have to say that success is really easy to achieve, don’t you think?

The Secret to Success – Kindness

Well, if we take a look around us we will notice that there aren’t too many successful people, and when I say successful I am not referring to people who have big houses and shiny cars, although these things can also be part of having a successful life, depending on what your definition of success is.

Real success is all about balancing all areas of life, mind, body, heart and spirit and making sure that they are in harmony, making sure that you live in harmony.

We can have billions and billions of dollars in our bank accounts but if we live with the fear of losing that money, if we hate the way we look, if we have no real friends… can we really call ourselves successful?

We can achieve so much with kindness, but are we willing to use our good heart? Are we willing to let go of our need to constantly compete with others and try to be better than they are? What about being better than yourself? Have you ever considered this option?

“Treat everyone with politeness, even those who are rude to you – not because they are nice, but because you are.” Author Unknown

What if you commit yourself for a month maybe to work on being better than you currently are and see where it will lead you. After this month if you feel like it’s not really worth the effort to work on improving the person you spend most of your time with, then you can quit. You can go back to competing with your fellow humans for as long as you’ll live if that’s what makes you happy.

    I’m going to work on improving myself – especially on my character – to be kinder in my speech and my actions both toward myself and others.

    I have been nice to the most ungrateful evil so call mother in law
    All that I got is constant bullying and cursing words from that filthy mouth
    Be careful who you are kind to some people are just there to hate you no matter what you do because these people never have a successful life of their own and I don’t mean financial successes Financial gain is their way to cover up their inadequacies and most people in the world bow down to money and the vicious cycle continues
    I sincerely hope that kindness can make the world a better place but the most important thing is to surround yourself with like minded people and stay far far away from the evil filthy mouth lot
