“My philosophy is to do the best you can for somebody. Help. It’s not just what do you for yourself. It’s how you treat people decently. The golden rule. There isn’t big anything better than the golden rule. It’s in every major religion in one language or another. “ – Art Linkletter

Do It With Love
We have different kinds of interactions with people as we go about living our day-to-day lives, don’t we? Some of the interactions we have are positive, some not so much. In this issue we’re going to talk about how we can always be sure to maximize our chances of success in all that we do. Most people want to be successful, don’t they? Yet, it seems like no matter how hard we might try, we manage to fall short fairly frequently just the same. There is something we can do to help guide ourselves to success more consistently, but it sounds almost counter-intuitive. Here’s what it is, “Always have the other party’s best interest at heart in all you do.”
Now, what most people think about whenever they deal with another person boils down to these three words, “what about me?” Yet, coming from that position in any interaction we have with others can be harmful. It doesn’t seem to make sense, unless we look at what happens from a psychological standpoint and the addition of The Law of Attraction into it. If we put our own desires first and foremost and then attempt to come to terms with another person over some matter, we might achieve temporary gain, but there are undercurrents which will carry that away from us in some form.
Psychologically, we understand we got the better of someone, so what happens is that we begin to have guilt over that, and our opinion of ourselves goes down a bit. Do it enough times and we begin to have a very low opinion of ourselves, indeed. We begin to believe we don’t deserve good things when they happen to us, and we can never obtain real happiness out of the blessings which are bestowed on us. This lowered opinion we have of ourselves works with The Law of Attraction and we attract to ourselves things primarily at the level of that inner belief we hold. The Law of Attraction doesn’t so much respond to what fleeting thoughts we might have, it does very little good to tell ourselves we deserve the best, when we know in our heart of hearts- it’s not true.
If we give of ourselves freely and unequivocally; if we do what we do out of love and with the other person’s best interest at heart, then we truly feel good about ourselves as a human being. By having this deep-down conviction within ourselves that we are worthy, the things we deem ourselves to be worthy of can begin to flow to us without the impediments that we would put in their way by trying to fool others. There are no shortcuts to doing right by others, you either do or you don’t, but if you keep the golden rule in mind, your life can then become meaningful and special. Now you feel really good about yourself, and that’s an awesome feeling to have.
Question of the Day to Ask Ourselves
“What can I do to remember to engage in no transaction which does not benefit all involved?”
