There are many people that one influences. The influence can be good or not so good, simple...
If one conducts his life to keep these recommendations in a spirit of uplifting, it's setting a good example.
Others around one cannot help but be influenced by this, no matter what is spoken.
Anyone trying to discourage you is trying to do so because they factually mean you harm
or are seeking to serve their own ends. Let's hope they still respect you!
Your own survival chances will be bettered in the long run since others, influenced,
will become less of a threat. There are other benefits. Don't discount the effect you can
achieve on others simply by mentioning these things and setting a good example in your own right.
So how do we set a good example?...It's quite simple really...Lead by example, one does not always
require words to convey this. Good, productive examples are followed merely by others watching you in action.
Being pro-active is of vital importance, together with keeping healthy morals and values, it is hoped
that a happiness will be pursued...This may lead to a life of positive thoughts and actions on others.
You don't lead to meet your own ends; that would be totally unjust onto others; not to mention the fear it may induce.
This does not lead to a spiritual tone.
Just keep going in your own right. The immense feeling of seeing smiling and laughter is a reward in itself.
The ultimate quest to conquer - is Love. Sharing love and compassion is vital for every human being on
this planet...and how often do we see the strains, not gains, and pains amongst our peoples who live a sub-human existence.
We have some obligation to reach out to these peoples...Just a mere smile may strike a note ~ also a note in us....
With our spirits high, discovering new ways and new avenues will help us in our pursuits; we are also attaining new insight,
and light as time goes by, and changes occur during our ever growing 'times of need'.
