The title of this post ties back to one of the top, if not the top human relations laws in all of civilization.
It is so powerful & insightful that it has, as the (paraphrased) quote from Gladiator states, ‘echo’ed through eternity‘
In fact, none other than Ben Franklin, yes, he who set up an amazingly successful, win:win franchised printing business that spanned Colonial America, pre independence, let alone all of his other well known ventures as an inventor & statesman, recognized this law’s ringing truth.
Franklin recited the below prayer, tying right back to this law, for over 50 years:
‘O powerful Goodness! bountiful Father! merciful Guide! Increase in me that wisdom which discovers my truest interest. Strengthen my resolutions to perform what that wisdom dictates. Accept my kind offices to Thy other children as the only return in my power for Thy continual favors to me.’
What can you learn from this law & this prayer? Plenty! The short answer is: Get your mind & your thinking off of yourself. Be a blessing to others; pay great information forward; serve first.
Have a fantastic day & week to come!
