You have read story after story of random acts of kindness. The person at the drive-thru window who pays for the coffee of the person behind them, who then pays for the coffee of the next person, and so on for up to 27 customers. The same type of generosity occurs at traffic toll booths.

You have held the door of a retail store for a physically challenged person to wheel in. You have let someone over into your lane of traffic…at least once, right? You have arrived at a fast-food counter simultaneously with another parent and motioned her ahead of you, remembering what it’s like to eat out with an 18-month old.

There is so much positive goodness in the world, particularly as we realize that while we perceive, conceive, believe, and achieve a Work Positive lifestyle, more than anything else we receive it. Therefore we serve others, knowing that givers really do gain, that what goes around comes around, that you reap what you sow, yet primarily motivated by an internal attitude of gratitude for how we receive a Work Positive life.

It is as we serve one another out of the abundance of our businesses that the negative world becomes more positive. Like a rising tide, all the ships around us are lifted up and together, we live out of our common hope to redefine reality and fulfill our collective dreams. I celebrate with you as you fulfill your business dreams and you celebrate with me as my companies succeed. That which was impossible appears before us and becomes possible. We achieve greatness together.

We discover such greatness as we serve each other. We realize the positive truth that “The first shall be last and the last shall be first.”

Service brings sustenance. Why? The universe was created to support it—what goes around, comes around; you reap what you sow.

Receiving such service is a natural byproduct of how our Work Positive lifestyles enlarge our perceptions, converge more resources for our conceiving, strengthen our beliefs, and create more achievements.

During this week in which the world slows down for a few minutes, join me in creating a little more peace on earth and good will to all people as we Work Positive.

Will you please…
…smile at a stranger?
…drop a check in a red bucket?
…call someone who may be alone?
…hand-write a thank you note to a favorite customer?
…go see someone in the hospital?

It’s really that simple.
