For better or for worse?

“Instead of always harping on a man’s faults, tell him of his virtues. Try to pull him out of his rut of bad habits. Hold up to him his better self, his real self that can dare and do and win out.” 

~ Eleanor Porter (1868-1920) American Novelist

It’s just as easy to build someone up as it is to tear someone down. It takes the same amount of energy and action using words and intention to help someone for the better or the worse. All it takes is the right attitude. Next time you’re faced with the opportunity to help or hurt someone, try your best to help them. You’ll notice that is wasn’t all that difficult to do and you’ll probably enjoy it. The good Karma will bring you welcome benefits that you never expected which will encourage you to give more and do better at helping others. Remember, it’s far better to give than to receive.
