Good Everywhere

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
