When it comes right down to it, most of us do not think we are an example to the world. We probably don’t even think we are an example to our neighborhood. But you are!
How you shine.
It doesn’t matter how many people you actually meet each day. You may meet dozens, or hundreds, or you may meet just a few. These are the easiest people to recognize when you shine. You may get immediate gratification, or you may not, but each person you meet takes away an impression. If that impression is of someone living happily, you have shined. If the impression is one of doom and gloom, well, you have shined too. Either way that person walks away either lifted or lower.
By far the greatest number of people you will interact with each day you will not even recognize. You will have no idea what they take with them as you pass, but they too take something. We are vibrational beings. We constantly emit rays of lightness or of darkness. As people pass through our vibrations they sense your vibration, even if it is on a sub-conscious level. You are always shining, so what do you want to shine?
An example to the world.
We are examples in everything we do, even if we are unaware of the example we set. Ask any parent who has had to suddenly deal with a child’s behavior which is an exact copy of their own! Usually this comes as somewhat of a surprise, and oftentimes it is an unpleasant surprise. Things we don’t even realize we are teaching, we teach.
Being an example to the world does not require a high visibility platform. When you allow someone else to cut in front of you in line at the grocery store, you are an example. If you have given the right-of-way to another driver, you are an example. Now, how does being kind to one person make it’s way to the world? You will never know exactly, but a kindness to one person has ripple effect. Being nice to one leads to them being nice to one or two others, and it continues outward. Yes, it is very possible your single random act of kindness today will result in billions of additional acts of kindness in the future.
You are important to the happiness of the world, just by your single act of kindness. Make those shared kindnesses more common, read my book “It’s All About Me” to see how to shake your feelings of powerlessness. Click on the cover below and order your copy today.
