20120625_143222When you try to do or be any of the words on the left, the typical reaction or response from one or more fellow humans will be the ones on right. They are not equal nor are they reciprocative. Which is sad considering all your actions seem to be positive and all the reactions invariably seem negative.

Take a moment and imagine yourself being on the right hand side instead. A fellow human – friend, colleague, family member, partner, boss, shopkeeper, salesperson, service personnel, student, traffic cop, chaiwallah, coachee, crew member…

Would you react that way (words on the right) or be different?

Are both your actions and reactions positive? Always? No matter what, who, when, where or why!

It’s said “What goes around comes around.” Going by that, if you try to “Be joyful & spread the cheer,” even if there’s only a 50-50 chance of it being reciprocated, isn’t it worth if the cheer comes around 😀
