This Is How You Do It: Your Path To True Success

If you're a success, but you're not sharing that success in some way, then you're doing it wrong.

If you're healthy, and not fully appreciating every moment of you're life, you're doing it wrong.

If you're particularly good-looking, and making fun of those who may not be so blessed, you're doing it wrong.

If you're rich, and haven't bought a lunch or dinner for a friend or family member, or even went so far as to pay their rent or mortgage during a challenging period in their lives, then you're doing it wrong.

If you've been given the gift to gab, but all you do is talk and think about yourself and your own needs 24-hours-a-day, then you're doing it wrong.

If you do a favor for someone only to receive something in return, then you're doing it wrong.

So, this is how you do it:

You wake up every morning, and thank the Good Lord for your beautiful life, even when you don't think it's so beautiful.  Because even when you don't think it's so beautiful, it is.  You're just probably too caught up inside yourself not to see it.

Then, as you prepare for your day, you ask yourself these questions:  "How can I bring joy into the life of someone else today?"  "Who needs my help?"   "Which of my friends or family members needs groceries?  A loan?  Or just a flat-out dollar amount that they never, ever need to pay me back for?"  "How can I contribute to someone's life today that will change their lives forever in the most positive way?"

Those are the kinds of questions you ask yourself upon beginning your day.

Because when you begin your day like that, and seek first to take care of others, Heaven will always take care of you.

That is Love's great promise.

And Love always keeps its promise.

Also, too, it's good to remember this bit of wisdom from Emerson, who said:

"No man is an island; no man goes his way alone; whatever we send into the lives of others; comes right back into our own."

So, send out only good things, my peeps...because all that good will come back to you...tenfold.
