While this may seem a bit like a spiritual, moral, or religious preaching it is not. What this is is an easy practice to increase mental strength, re-direct your thinking, and make your life better.

Any ideas?

The practice is simple and will lead toward a more fulfilling, successful, and rewarding life.

It is so straightforward!

Something you can do once a day or one hundred times a day. Whenever you feel like it. Or rather, whenever you think of it. It is a practice like flossing or brushing your teeth. One that with time becomes automatic and the returns are infinite.

You may be thinking here we go again:

  • a 10-minute walk
  • broccoli with dinner
  • forgiveness
  • acceptance
  • journaling


These are great ideas but not the one!

The simple practice that will improve your life in every area is this:

Start today by redirecting all the sweat and hard work you put into your hope of being liked by others into…….


Your finding reasons instead TO LIKE OTHERS. No matter who they are.

That’s it. So simple.

Can you do it? Switch your thinking around?

One must see in every human being only that which is worthy of praise. When this is done, one can be a friend to the whole human race. If, however, we look at people from the standpoint of their faults, then being a friend to them is a formidable task. ‘Abdul’l-Baha, Lights of Guidance
