Wouldn't the world be a great place if everyone were nice to everyone? It would! So, why isn't it? Well are you doing all you can to be nice to everyone you see and that you come into contact with? If not you are just as much a part of the problem as other people that you would like to complain about. So, it's time to do something about it.
You've likely heard the concept of pay it forward. Paying it forward means that you do good things for others without expecting anything in return. It's all about doing good for someone and hoping that sometime they will do good for someone else because of it.
Now this is truly a selfless act and not always easy. It is really easy to think of being good to someone when they are good to you first or if you want something, but a little harder to do it just because. So let's start with a trigger. What I mean by this is that there may be things you can do to remind yourself that you want to be a little nicer to the rest of the world and that you want to be putting good energy out there.
A simple trigger can be a motivational quote or a series of motivational quotes like these:
"Never lose a chance of saying a kind word." - William Thackeray
"A good deed is never lost: he who sows courtesy reaps friendship; and he who plants kindness gathers love." - Basil
"Do not forget small kindnesses and do not remember small faults." - Chinese Proverb
Any of these quotes are a great way to trigger yourself to look at the good in the people around you and offer good to the people around you all the time.
Don't fret if in the beginning you don’t always remember to be kind and end up wanting to beat yourself up for it later on. That's normal. It's not always easy to remember to change your complete way of being all the time. That's why you can have the motivational quotes. They can be around you and remind you of what you want to do.
You may notice another thing that these quotes do as well. Not only will they remind you that you want to be a good positive influence on the world around you, but they likely will also be a good and positive influence on you. You see, reading a lot of positive quotes like these in themselves can make you feel good. They can give you that warm feeling of good being done in the world for others. That feeling of good is a great way to improve your mood.
So, what are you waiting for? Get going. Start with the quotes above or, if you prefer, you can find your own. You could go to the bookstore and buy a book, or take an easier route and never have to leave your home. Go out on the Internet and look up more motivational quotes that may be better for you. There are plenty of websites out there that are full of motivational quotes that you can read and enjoy at just the touch of a few keys on the computer. While you are doing that, you may want to take notes. There are going to be some that will suit you and your needs. Those may be the quotes you need to commit to paper or memory so you have them nearby anytime you need them.
