Do Unto Others...

Today's Empowering Quote

"Kindness it is that brings forth kindness always."
-Sophocles (447 B.C.)

Today's Empowering Question

"Could I gain greater cooperation right now by showing
kindness and respect than by demanding it?"

Today's Fast Session

A couple days ago, I was watching 'Santa Claus is Coming
To Town' with my three year old son, and I noticed an
important principle of life playing out.

In the story, the village dictator (the Burgermeister) had
outlawed toys because he had fallen on a toy and broken his
leg. No child was to play with any toys or they would be
locked up.

Well, Kris Kringle (a.k.a. Santa Claus) was delivering
toys to all the kids, so he was branded an outlaw. Public
Enemy #1.

When Kris confessed to giving the town's children a bunch
of toys, he was to be arrested. In a flash of quick
thinking, he presented the Burgermeister with a toy--a yo-

For a moment, the Burgermeister began playing with the yo-
yo, reminiscing about his youth, until he was reminded that
he was breaking his own law. This gave Kris an opening to

...into the forest, which was the home of The Winter
Warlock, who captured Kris.

Again, Kris gave him a toy--a choo-choo train. This kind
act melted the heart of the warlock, who let Kris go.

Isn't this how it usually happens in your life?

If you aren't the type, yet, who can inspire the
cooperation of others because your kindness makes people
want to help you and be around you, then it's time to try
it out...

...And even get good at it.

But before you do, think back. And look around.

Who gets the admiration and support of others? Who do
people work harder for? Is it the one who brings in the
doughnuts for co-workers occasionally, the one who asks
respectfully or the one who rants and raves that nothing
gets done?

Who would you work harder for?

To make this easier to see, imagine how you would like to
be asked (not told) to do something.

Isn't it easier to take when you're asked to drop what
you're doing, if the person says something like this?:

"I know you're busy and this looks important, however I
need to ask you a big favor. Could you...?" Or,

"I wonder if I could ask you to take a few minutes to help
me with this...?" Or,

"I know you've got a lot to do, and I don't want you to
get behind on account of me, but I have to ask you to..."

Man, wouldn't you like to hear that?

What do you hear from the people who make your blood boil?
Things like:

"Get in here, I need your help!"
"You're working OT today, so cancel any plans you have."
"Get doing your homework now!"
"I need a ride and I have to be there in 15 minutes."

Boy, that makes me want to blow a gasket. How about you?

Also, this can be extended to times when we make mistakes.
Let's say someone made a big boo-boo. Of course, they get
called on it. The boss, co-worker, spouse, whoever it may
be loses their temper. They don't care why the mistake was

What do most people do? They deny responsibility, of


Mistakes are not death sentences. They're truly chances
to see where your weaknesses are... golden opportunities to
identify what you need to work on to make your health, your
business, your relationships and your finances better.

But what do most of us do?

"It wasn't me!! The copier was broken. They didn't
return my call. I was stuck in traffic." Etc.

Try this. When you make a big blunder, whether you're
alone or if someone else catches it, immediately admit it...

...Immediately. Gracefully.

This takes the wind out of the sails of the person who
wants to pounce you. If you admit a mistake before it's
even noticed by others, they'll likely react in a way
that's only about 10-20% as strong as they would if you
deny it or blame your circumstances for the error.


Try not to repeat it. And smile. Because you can do this.
