“The smallest act of kindness is worth more that the grandest intention” – Oscar Wilde
If you love, show it. The most important word here is ACT. It is the action that makes the difference, irrespective of the amount of good intentions you have.
Some of the things that stop us from being who we should be, and do what we should do, are actually less complex than they often seem.
Sometime, we afraid of what others will say or we keep putting off what we should do now with the excuse that we are planning something bigger. But then we miss opportunities.
The truth is that relationships are fundamental to success in life, and they are sustained by actions, not intentions.
What does it cost to say these two words: “Thank you” or these three, “I love you” or these four, “That’s good, well done” or these five, “How has been your day?” What will it cost to smile, wave your hand, shake hands, give a high five, or hug somebody?
As little as these might seem, they are worth far more than endless plans for luxury picnics at the best resorts.
As it works for kindness, it works for business, career, academic and any other area of endeavour.
So today, get off your thinking couch and act.
It is good to dream big, but it is better to start small. This is true for every aspect of life. This is not just about others, it is also about you. What about those long term plans of yours? What have you done so far? Stop imagining what it will feel like having that job or being married to that person.
Just do something about the things you want to do or become. And do it now.
