Always Be Kind: Always Be True

“Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a harder battle.”  ― Plato

Are you willing to do whatever it takes to help others in need? Do you make sacrifices to help others reach their goals? Do you feel happy when others are happy? If you answered yes to these questions, then you are compassionate.

According to psychologists, this trait gives one meaning and purpose; and contributes to the wellbeing of others.

What about self-compassion? Such self-guided affirmations encourage us to accept and embrace our flaws – even more so; to leverage them as learning opportunities. After all, every failure is merely an opportunity in disguise.

Studies associate compassion with better performance on the job as well as improved relationships with others. When integrated into our daily thinking, it makes us more fulfilled and launches a mindset of becoming more committed to enhancing the lives of others (JFC’s mission).

When we become more conscious and choose to treat others/ourselves better, we change our conversations. While no single conversation is guaranteed to transform a company, a relationship, or a life; any single conversation can.*
