I’m a big fan of the Golden Rule. I dream of what a world might look like if we really did unto others as we’d have done unto ourselves. Honestly, even though I dream about it… I have a hard time imagining what it might actually look like. It certainly wouldn’t look like it does today but I’m eternally optimistic about what it could be. Why? Because I know that there are a lot of people dreaming about the same thing I am… who knows, maybe you are one of those dreamers too.
As I think about what’s blocking that dream from becoming a reality, I think about The Price of Nice.
Putting others first…
Letting go and forgiving someone else…
Slowing down when we’re in a hurry to lend a hand to another….
Watching our words and choosing them carefully…
Investing to build up rather than tear down…
Valuing others more than ourselves….
Taking time to show our appreciation….
Choosing to intentionally make someone else’s day…
All these things cost. Not money but effort and time.
We want others to pay the price for us but are we willing to pay the price for them in return?
It’s not an easy question if you’re honest with yourself but it’s a question we all need to ask each and every day.
Simply dreaming about it won’t make it so. We have to do our part by leading the way, setting the example and making a difference in the sphere of influence that we have… regardless of how big or small that is.
The Price of Nice is the currency that makes the world a better place.
Go spend a little today. Who knows, you might just get it back x2 in return.
