I continue to be humbled, inspired, motivated to do good things by seeing good things happen. It’s absolutely the case. I feel better when I take this approach, realize its value, and perpetuate it throughout my day.
One of the mantras I’ve adopted and share often is “Good begets More Good.” I say it via twitter pretty regularly, like to a guy I’ve never met in person, @DaddyisBest – I love this dude’s energy. He gives me props from time to time, and I tell him, “Good begets More Good.” BOOM.
I saw a colleague in the hall earlier this morning…he looked a little spun up already — before 9:00am — and I thought a little “Hello” would do him good. His face lit up just a little when I say, “Hey Andrew! GOOD MORNING” — Good begets More Good.
Then I saw a piece about Anja Ringgren Loven who changes lives one child at a time through her own personal efforts, and those of the group she founded to save abandoned children in Nigeria. Incredible Good. Her philosophy is simple and straight forward and awesome:
“We work on the human nature that every child in the world has the right to food and education, and to live a dignified life.
“Our values consist of showing sheer compassion, care and love for those who need it the most and through that create confidence.”
I can’t help but try to do a little more good when I hear about people like Anja, and see the effect of her efforts. They’re good. And good is everywhere.
“Find it. Share it. NOW.” That’s another mantra I repeat often. And one more? #worthit
