It worth it to add value to things, people, and to yourself. The greatest mistake we make sometimes is that we only realize the value of things, when we let it go.
“Most people are so stuck in their egos that everything revolves around me, me, and more me. But if you want to be rich in the truest sense of the word, it can’t only be about you. It has to include adding value to other people’s lives.” ~ T. Harv Eker
You can use your wisdom to add value to others and yourself. The Oxford English Dictionary defines wisdom as “The capacity of judging rightly in matters relating to life and conduct; soundness of judgement in the choice of means and ends.”
Everyone has his/her own abilities. You have to recognize and make use of your abilities and resources to add value to yourself, others and the environment.
The value you add to things, people, and yourself is basically your decision to make. For example: Is buying Mcdonald’s takeaway food adding value to you and your family’s health? Or is cooking a healthy meal at home adding more value to you and your family’s health?
Is buying unnecessary items of clothing, toys and gadgets going to add value to you? Or is it going to add more value to you by using that money to pay down debt or put in a savings account?
“When you live your life in alignment with a purpose that is centered on selflessly adding value for others, opportunities become abundant and your life becomes fulfilled.” ~Hal Elrod
You can add value to someone by making him or her the beneficiary of an act of kindness.
Hermann Hesse, (Siddhartha )once said: “I have always believed, and I still believe, that whatever good or bad fortune may come our way we can always give it meaning and transform it into something of value.”
Smile often to others and to yourself. Smiling to others brings happiness and comfort to people around you and also to yourself.
