The 30 day kindness challenge

“Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.”
Mark Twain

Kindness is one of the basic ingredients for self-fulfillment and happiness.
Every person exists in a broader context, we are all part of a large system, each of us is still a difference in society, though not realize it. And this is true on a personal level and at work. The way we think, act, talk makes a difference in the lives of people around us. So the question to ask is not if I want to make a difference or not, but what kind of difference do I want to make? What kind of legacy do I want to leave to the world?

The most urgent question of life is: What are you doing for other people?
Here is a challenge for you. Be kinder to others in the next 30 days. Are you in?
