Have you ever said a few kind words to someone and then watch them smile that it makes you smile back. Have you felt that happiness in that moment that could not be replaced. That is how this world works, the goodness you give, comes back to you at some point in your life. Never ever think that it goes in vain. Even if a person doesn't treat you the way you treat them, does no harm to you but to them. Because at some point, you'll get your reward for being kind.
Our world has reached to a point where evil has overpowered goodness and hence there is a need to give out all the good that we can. We all have some goodness within us but it has no meaning if it doesn't come out. Every other person these days is depressed. Rarely do we find people walking with a smile on their face. But each one of us has the power to make the people around us happy. Make a pledge of doing just one good deed a day and see how your life changes. Your one act of kindness can inspire many others to do the same, and you won't even know how many lives it affects in a positive way. Our good deeds not only make the people around us happy but they also keep us at peace. You can only find satisfaction in life when you know your acts haven't hurt the people around you. Even an act as simple as a smile can make somebody's day. Often it happens that we keep waiting for the other person to take the first step while greeting or while starting a conversation, maybe the other person is thinking the same and therefore the conversation between the two of you never even starts. So never hesitate to take the first step, only then will others not hesitate with you. A person can not excel in life unless he possesses the best of manners. The knowledge that you have will be of no use if you don't have a good character. If your manners impress a person, then only will your knowledge mean anything to them. Your kindness will never let you down.
Ask yourself one simple question? Do you treat people the way you want to be treated? If not then you must know that whatever you do comes back to you. If you're not kind with people, you can never expect them to be kind to you. That is how human nature is, we tend to give what we get. If you want goodness in your life you must first do good to other people. Be kind to others and they will be kind to you.
