I pay attention to the things that people say to me and when I’m about to take off on an airplane, I’m always happy when I hear the flight crew say;
“If there is anything we can do to make your flight more enjoyable, please let us know.”
While drinking my coffee this morning, I began to think how we all should be making this flight more enjoyable for the people we’re traveling through life with and they should be doing the same for us in return. This idea of reciprocity in relationships definitely makes the journey called life more enjoyable. To be surrounded by people who make it their business to think of ways to make your life easier is an amazing quality for people to have that stick around you. It’s a sad reality that most people are surrounded by the total opposite. They are literally smack dab in between people who intentionally do things to make their lives miserable. Some have even been convinced that they get some moral recognition for putting up with obnoxious, ungrateful family and friends. What a lie! There’s no Medal of Honor for allowing people to treat you like trash. Hello! As a matter of fact, people who stay in abusive romantic, family and work relationships suffer miserably. They often have high levels of anxiety, depression, mental and emotional issues and physical illness as a result of the people in their lives who work to make things so un-enjoyable.
My advice to you today is look around and take an assessment of the people around you. Who’s making your life better? How can you reciprocate your kindness to them? Also, look at who’s sticking around making it worse? Who in your life can you honestly say you’re helping them go to their next level? Who are the ones who you know you’re bringing down? Be honest. Then do something radical to move beyond assessment. Some people stay too long in the assessment phase. They love to admit they need to change and never do anything to change. It’s time to move beyond confession and complaint. Actually do something to help yourself and the people in your life grow. Help them get there! Don’t be the reason someone continues to underachieve. Don’t be the reason someone is insecure or afraid to try. If you don’t have anything nice to say, sometimes it’s best to say nothing at all. Don’t be the source of constant aggravation and frustration for anyone. This flight called life is difficult enough. No one needs to be surrounded by people who aren’t going anywhere and who aren’t doing a blessed thing to try to help people go anywhere!
See, the possibilities in life for success and happiness are endless. There’s a zillion ways you can improve the quality of the lives around you. Smile. Be nice. Walk into a room and actually have a good attitude and outlook. Support someone today. Promote them. Teach them. Inspire them. Give them a hand. Speak words of life, hope and encouragement instead of always being negative and critical. Invest in them. Pray for them. Bless them! Feed them. Hug them. Truth is, there are a lot of people around you on this flight. When are you going to ever actually help them take off? Today’s a good day to get involved in making this flight called life better for someone who’s about to give up. Be the reason someone smiles . This world is full of people who just need a helping hand.
