Importance of making others feel happy

"Make one person happy each day, and in forty years you will have made 14,600 human beings happy for a little time, at least." -Charley Willey

Have you ever heard the old story of the old man who sat near the gate of his village and greeted people who entered and exited in his village? When travelers came in, very often they would ask what kind of people were in the village. The man responded by asking them what the people were like in the village they just left. If the traveler said the people were good and nice, the old man told them that he would find the people in this village were much the same. If the traveler said the other village had horrible people in it, the man said that they would find the people here much the same.

The moral of the story is that we take ourselves with us wherever we go. We meet the same kind of people everywhere. If you want to meet good people, you have to change your attitude towards others. Try to see the good in others.

It may have happened to you... When I reach my home late, the wife would be there to attack me, when I say something witty, she will start laughing with children. Tension would ease and we will have a nice evening. On the other hand, if I shot at back with the same tone, there would be tension and we would spoil the evening.

Making one person happy a day, it is better to bring the smile than a frown. It doesn't cost you at all. Try this, smile for the next 60 seconds. Just sit there and smile. Don't do anything else.

I'll wait.

Aren't you feeling good?

Didn't you sense a physical feeling inside you every second you start to smile? The physiology of this is that when we smile, we are literally programmed to feel good. If you think you have to feel great to smile, you are mistaken. Smile first and you will feel great. It is impossible to feel bad when we are smiling.

You are doing a good thing if you make it your mission to make at least one person smile per day. The feelings that you are feeling right now as you reading and grinning is exactly what you will be doing for everyone that you make smile.

Remember the story of the house of 1000 mirrors. When a happy little dog learned of this house of 1000 mirrors, it decided to visit that place. He climbed the stairs to the doorway of the house and looked through the doorway to find that 1000 other happy little dogs. He smiled and was answered with 1000 great smiles. He thought it is a wonderful place and wanted to visit again. In the same village, another little dog, who was not quite happy as the first one also decided to visit the house. He slowly climbed the stairs and hung his head low as he looked into the door, he found 1000 unfriendly looking dogs staring back at him. He growled at them and was horrified to see 1000 little dogs growling back at him. He left that place and thought that this is a horrible place and decided never to go back there again.

All the faces in the world are mirrors. What kind of reflections do you see in the faces of the people you meet?
