Uplift others with your thoughts and words

This week’s ” You Can Save the World:  Simple Actions You Can Take”

Think and speak positively about others.  In his 1948 classic, The Magic of Believing, Claude Bristol advised that “the thing we get back is a reflection of what we project mentally.” More specifically he noted that “another will consider us an enemy or friend entirely according to the picture we ourselves conjure up.”

It is undermining and disrespectful to speak, or even think, negatively about another person. Your thoughts and words are powerful creative forces in this world. They have an impact on the person you speak about, on the person you speak to…and on you.

Use your creative powers wisely. Use them to respect, include, inspire, and uplift other people. Help them to rise above any limitations you may recognize in them and to reach their potential. Support them and be their advocates with others. They will benefit from your kindness, and you will feel much better about yourself.
