Confidence Booster Series: Good Will
“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank
This week’s focus is inspired by Anne Frank’s beautiful quote. Anne Frank was an extremely wise young girl whose life was cut much too short. She is probably one of the most discussed Jewish victims of the Holocaust due to the detailed diary she kept.
Her wartime diary was published after her death and is a famous piece of literature that has inspired many plays and films. Her insight on humanity was brought to light through her writing and words of wisdom. Despite the unthinkable suffering and loss she endured, she still held the belief that people had a huge capacity for goodness and love. I can’t help but be inspired by the depths of her hope and her enlightened view of the human spirit.
Many of us living in the world right now are fortunate to have a peaceful existence. Sadly, at the same time, too many of us live under circumstances that are less than ideal. The common thread we all share is that we have the ‘capacity’ to spread good will to each other through our thoughts, feelings and actions.
Good will doesn’t have to be complicated. It’s as easy as shifting our focus to one that has compassion and love for others around us. It’s being mindful of our actions and words we communicate. It’s looking at ways we can contribute to others around the world to help improve their lives and circumstances.
This week, look at some of the ways you can spread good will out into the world. The added benefit is that you will feel an immediate boost by adopting an attitude that is purposeful and positive. By making small compassionate shifts in our thoughts, behaviors and actions, we have the ability to improve our world at this very moment – and that is empowering.
