Thinking Moment

Sometime ago, you were told that "it is better to give than to receive". That's no cliché. It's a principle.

For Every Action

According to the laws of physics, 'for every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction'. But, do you know that this principle applies to interpersonal relationships as well?  Think of it this way: YOU REAP WHAT YOU SOW. That is, to receive, first you give.

If you want respect, it begins by you respecting others. If you want someone to be interested in you, first show interest in that someone. If you want understanding, seek first to understand. If you want to be trustworthy, trust first. If you seek to be treated or  compensated what you think you are worth, first recognize and provide that value. If you want some attention, first pay attention. Get the picture?

Have you observed how a couple who just fell in love seem to glow in their happiness? They're just giving and receiving large doses of what they want for themselves. When you love and care for someone, anyone, your spouse or partner, your best friend, your parents, or your kids, just GIVE LOVE, GET LOVED BACK. It's that simple.

Are you looking  to give your child something? Here's one that would make a big difference - give him self-esteem. Self-esteem is a person's feeling of self-worth, one's sense of importance. You can raise a person's self-esteem two ways: by assuring  that he is loved, accepted, and appreciated, no matter what, and by showing your faith in his ability to achieve. Now, think. The more you nurture your child's self-esteem, the more you increase yours. It works on you too! That's truly THE JOY OF PARENTING.

You can practice this too if you are in a position of authority. The teachers who strive to raise their students' self-esteem are the happiest. Same with employers and employees, managers and their teams, sales people and their clients. When others depend on you or look up to you, you automatically raise your own self-esteem just by raising theirs. What an awesome reward!

So, think. Sometime ago, someone told you that 'it is better to give than to receive'. That's no cliché. It's a principle.
