Kindness Creates Love & Avoids Arguments
“Kindness in words creates confidence. Kindness in thinking creates profoundness. Kindness in giving creates love.”
– Lao Tzu, was a mystic philosopher of ancient China.
Kindness is a strong force. It revolves on understanding, patience and love. With all three characteristics a lot could be accomplished as well as a better life lived. The art of these acts takes a lot of self-discipline to carry out. I know what you’re thinking… ‘Easier said than done!’ Right?! Maybe not. Maybe the hardest part of this is taking our own ego’s out of the equation. By valuing others will we receive the same back.
“Don’t wait for people to be friendly, show them how.”– Anonymous
With that said, arguments are led nowhere and carry out nothing. You’re point will never be heard through an argument because the other party is too caught up in defending their own viewpoint. Instead, I’m applying a different kind of method, used by Socrates, Lincoln, Roosevelt and many successful people. At first I look for agreements in our discussion. I want to appreciative the other party for valuing something as much as I do to discuss it.
“Be kind to unkind people – they need it the most.”
– Ashleigh Brilliant, artist and writer.
Nobody likes being told that they are wrong. I sure don’t. So what gives me the right to tell others they are? Nothing. Be the change you want to see in the world. Stand out and be proud!
