What is your message to the world?
Are you connected to the broader spectrum of life, or is your focus on what's immediately in front of you? These are questions that I'm constantly asking myself, and that in doing so, hopefully enable me to live a more meaningful life.
There are so many facets to running a successful business, as there are to living a rich and diverse life. And one of the most important things that you can learn is how to be nice to people, respect yourself and respect your environment.
Every single action we take will have an impact on a wider scale. As a rough example, the choice you make to throw away your litter, rather than to dump it in the street, will mean that the street is kept clean. Likewise if you chose to work with a client knowing or not caring that their practices are unethical, you have decided to contribute to those practices, even if it may seem that you're completely removed from them. Learning to appreciate this can be invaluable to living a positive life.
The saying 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you', carries an extremely powerful message. If you care about what you do, how you act, what you say, if you are kind and conscientious in your actions, then your perspective becomes broader. This allows you to live more positively, and to be fully aware of your own impact in life. Choosing to respect people, and choosing to surround yourself with, and to work with people who in turn show respect leads to a positive and well rounded life, contributing to a positively evolving world.
