Want to Be Happier & More Successful? Practice Kindness Today.

You may have heard that resilience and confidence are the keys to becoming happy and successful. While it is true that optimism and a flair for problem solving can help you navigate the business world, if you truly want to achieve your goals, remember to do one simple thing: be kind. 

Kindness is a willingness to help other people, as well as to help yourself. If you emphasize kindness in your actions, you will: 

Truly Make a Difference: Kindness is both an inward and outward-facing habit. When we are kind to ourselves, we strengthen our ability to reflect, recover, and live with intent. When we advertise our desire to be of service to the world, we greatly increase our ability to make a positive impact in people’s lives. Keep kindness at the forefront of your objectives. Ask people what they need. Don’t be afraid to volunteer your time and services to the people who need them most.

Connect with More People: Kindness also involves practicing patience. You don’t need to always demonstrate kindness by giving money or advice; giving your time is meaningful in itself. Listen when people speak. Reserve judgment. Taking time to get to know more about each person will help you learn how you can lend them a hand. Kindness will enable you to create more lasting connections with people. The more you offer to help people, the more they will be happy to return the favor. 

Perform at Your Best: Being kind to ourselves can be hard. Strive for excellence, but do not berate yourself if you do not achieve perfection. Allow yourself to learn and grow. Take time regularly to replenish your energy levels. Regular self-care can help you avoid burnout. Be kind to both your mind and body. If you feel like you need recovery time, take it.
