You can make such a difference in other people’s lives. That difference may be big or it may be small, but the thing to remember is that you can make the difference.
We are not all in the same position when it comes to giving. Some of us ca give money, others can give time. So give whatever you are in the position to give and you will be richly rewarded.
The second way to make a difference is by having fun. Good energy is contagious and spreads like wildfire. People can just feel your positive energy when you walk in to a room. Life is serious enough, have fun, laugh and enjoy yourself and stop worrying about the future.
Now is the only time that you have control over. The past is gone and the future is still on its way. Now is the present moment and now is when you can make a difference. They call it past, present and future for a reason. The present is a gift. Present. When you have fun, it motivates you to do other positive things and encourages your mind to focus on the solution rather than the problem. My parents are a perfect example when it comes to changing energy. We walked in to a shop the other day and all the staff were gathered behind the counter.
The mood seemed a bit down and my parent’s decided to change it and have a bit of fun at the same time.
Without missing a beat my Dad said,” Are you having a union meeting?”
“Yes,” the manager replied with a grin on his face.
Without missing a beat my mom responded “Well, we are so sorry we are so late, the traffic was terrible. Anyway, let’s get going. Thank you all for making the time to fit this meeting in to your schedule but it’s very important.”
With that whole shop burst in to laughter and the mood was one of fun and games. When we left the shop you could feel we had made a difference in those people’s days.
All it takes is a shift, a smile and you can literally see people’s attitudes change – give it a try!
