“Investment Advice for Turbulent Times:
Kindness pays HUGE dividends, materially and ethereally, forever and ever.
The Universe”©Mike Dooley, http://tut.com
Focus on being a good person, as many religions preaches. As the Day of Atonement just passed, where all Jews around the world come before God and repent for their sins, we wonder why this ONE day of the year is so holly, as all days should be treated the same way when it comes to being kind, being generous, helping others so we do not need to repent for that one day of all our sins and just be consistent. By doing so, we let God know that we are good people that have been put in this Earth per his intent, and help others in need who can’t really help themselves. This is what our mission should be, every single day of our lives.
No one is perfect, as we all figured out, even though that doesn’t stop narcissist for thinking otherwise. However, the reality is that once you get into the act of helping others in need, it becomes like a work-out, where you feel like you need to do it everyday, just like adrenaline rush. Most importantly, you do it from the heart, as you are almost sure that the people you help can’t really give back the same way you gave to them. The fact of not expecting anything in return is what makes the whole act of helping so much more special. It is crucial to also help those who are really in need, and not those who are there to take advantage of you. For these kind of people, you need to open your eyes wide and read through their malicious intent and make a sound choice as to what you want to do. Some may also be family members which makes it even harder to NOT wanting to help. Work on sharpening your skills when it comes to who deserves your time and help and who doesn’t. With time, it will be as easy as breathing.
