When I was a kid my mother said to me “Make people happy!”
A small but a much profound thought went up my 12 years old mind; I thought about what could I do to make people happy? How can I make an impact?
Years passed by till I got my answer! There is no measuring device invented that can measure the enormous impact any one of us can have on another person’s life. Sometimes our simplest and a tiniest effort can make someone’s day and change his life in ways we didn’t even think of.
With the intention of changing someone’s life there are two things that needs to be looked upon; Care and Love! Showing love to a person we don’t know seems strange but it gets easier as we do. People can move mountains and do great things when they know there is someone who cares for them and who loves them. These two things give hope and strength to face the world and inspire them to live a better life.
While there are a million ways to show someone you care, here is a list of few things you can do to improve the lives of others around you.
Listen and Understand
One of the nicest things you can do is to listen and understand the other person’s problems—without judging. Make the person assure of your undivided attention so that he can talk out his utmost inner feelings. Most of the time people know the answers to their problems; they just need an encouragement to do a certain thing!
Smile to people
A smile has a much happier and healthier impact than you can imagine. You can literally change someone’s day by smiling at them because you don’t know what problems they might be dealing with. Your simple smile will give them hope that things are going to be okay!
Making someone feel happy by saying “You look fabulous” or complimenting them in anyway is one way you are adding a little more happiness to the world. People get happy when they feel appreciated, so a single compliment may be all it takes to make a difference.
To make a difference you do not have to do incredible things just make people happy!
