Kindness is the strongest proof of Karma as every bit act of kindness enriches you. Why it is a major Emotional Fitness Training Exercise.
Emotional Fitness Training Tips
Emotional Fitness Training Tip One: While I admire Random Acts of Kindness, deliberate acts strengthen you more. Dr Anders Ericsson said in the early 1990 that it takes 10,000 hours (20 hours for 50 weeks a year for ten years = 10,000) what he called deliberate practice to become an expert in almost anything. While many have since disputed his claim, it is clear mega stars in almost every field prove his point.
Some good news: EFTI promotes starring in your life, not on the stage or the athletic playing field. Good enough gets you there when it comes to everyday life. However, go here to learn how to be more deliberate in your practice of anything. Here are ideas for practicing kindness deliberately.
Emotional Fitness Training Tip Two: Teach practicing kindness to all the children you know; I do not mean just chronological children.
Emotional Fitness Training Tip Three: Complain for others. Here’s an example. Sometimes I need to use the motorized shopping carts most large stores provide. I knew I needed on a very hot day even though I was only picking up a few items. The store had three such carts, not one of them worked. Although I just wanted to beat it out of there, I complained to the manager.
Sad to say I was told, the company they hired to provide the chairs gave lousy service. Not a helpful answer, so when I got home I wrote a letter of complaint to the company. Not a big act of kindness and partly for me, but what I mean by complaining for others. You may have noticed I do some of that on Social Media.
A final poster coach that should be in every classroom and public forum. Well at least in my not-so-humble opinion.
This post was prompted by this WordPress Daily Prompt: The Kindness of Strangers by Ben Huberman. When was the last time a stranger did something particularly kind, generous, or selfless for you? Tell us what happened!
When I was trying to make the mobilized shopping cart work as described above, a lovely man and his teenage daughter stopped to help. Didn’t get the cart working, but prompted me to complain as a way of passing the kindness forward.
tHANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO
Remember to share and care all you find of value on the internet. All here crave recognition. A like says “Thank You.” Comments say you have read and thought about the post. Sharing is a gift to three people: the blogger, the people you share with, and you for your kindness bless you.
