A great attitude has been arguably responsible for more success than anything else known to humanity. A person with a mediocre work ethic and a great attitude, will more often than not be more appealing than a person with an impeccable work ethic, but a terrible attitude. We tend to want to be in the presence of people who make us feel good, this may be all they have to offer, and in some instances, it’ll be regarded as more than enough. The better we make people feel about themselves, the better people will feel about us. When we become a source of comfort in the hearts and minds of the people, they’ll be willing to show their gratitude by supporting everything we do. Being kind and courteous never hurt anyone, and it’s a way of being that pleases almost everyone.
Goodness Henery! Even if I'm not fan of the word "success" at all (a story of another time), I didn't let it block me from reading your your incredibly beautiful story.
I've been devoring it with the enthusiasm of a kid--given I'm a grown one anyway, wet eyes and a peaceful smile up to this paragraph, which made me blown away-- one of my favorite sensations!
The reason is very simple: we don't know each other; still the universe found a marvellous way to make our paths converge! Its tool was the Slack group, more precisely Illumination-Curated and even mre precisely the very special and generous conductor Mehmet Yildiz! 🤩 And what is mind-blowing is the synchronicity! I wrote something very similar to your idea a long time ago:
Thank you so much, my new soul friend, for how you made me feel!
