Hello again. Today I'm very pleased to present to you another motivational wallpaper. This one is called, "Kindness", and it is my 82nd success wallpaper (5th for this year).

Kindness is a subject that, at first glance, might cause one to scratch his head and ask, "What does this have to do with success?"

One may also feel that kindness and success simply can't really co-exist. One may think, "Isn't becoming a success mean that you have to go over people, push forward or through challenges, get tough, and be stronger than all obstacles? You can't do that and be kind at the same time." To some, kindness looks like a form of weakness.

But in truth, it's the exact opposite. Kindness takes strength of character. It's putting yourself aside and being thoughtful of others first.

Being kind isn't always easy. To some it's downright difficult, especially when something doesn't go our way. It's also hard when we let our emotions fly without restraint and we stay in that ugly frame of mind too long. Then before we even realize it, we forget about being even civil - let alone kind - to others due to our own issues.

But if we refocus our thoughts, and start to put others first, kindness can start to flow through us.

John Wooden once said, "You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you." And it was W.S. Merwin who said, "If those who owe us nothing gave us nothing, how poor we would be." Surely, there have been times in your life where you found yourself being given something by someone and they had no expectation of being repaid. They did it simply to be kind.

Kindness stems from being unselfish and thoughtful of others. It's about thinking of others first before yourself, and wanting to make others feel good despite our own feelings. With practice, it's something we can all get better at and allow ourselves to think of others first. And that, as Lao Tzu said, "creates love".

The neat thing about spreading kindness around is that it could come back to you eventually in some way. But even if it doesn't, you'll still feel an immediate reward inside that will make you an ultimate success as a person. And that's what it's all about. smile
