Life is not about us; it is about other people. It is about how we treat other people. We don’t live for ourselves; we live for others.

Herbert Spencer said, “No one can be perfectly free till all are free; no one can be perfectly moral till all are moral; no one can be perfectly happy till all are happy.” Before you take any action, it is important to consider how your action is going to affect other people. Because we are together. We love life. We want to help other people, not to hurt them.

Remember that no one is free until everyone is free. You can free other people. You can do that by lifting other people up, by bringing out the best in other people. To bring out the best in other people, to bring out the best in ourselves, according to Henry Van Dyke, we must learn: “To think without confusion clearly; to love his fellow-men sincerely; to act from honest motives purely; to trust in God and Heaven securely.” If you can do that, you will be able to lift yourself and others up. It is not going to be easy, but you can handle it.

Don’t Worry About Other People’s Opinions

“It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit frankly and try another. But above all, try something.”- Franklin D. Roosevelt

We don’t like to fail at something. We like to pass all the time. We like to show our friends how smart we are. We don’t like to talk about our failures and mistakes. To be really honest here, failure is what we should be talking about all the time. Why is that? Because we learn more from failure. Failure has a lot to teach us if we are willing to accept it. Are you ready to learn from failure?

If you fail at something, keep trying. Don’t stop trying. Never stop trying. If you try and fail, try it again. Don’t worry about other people’s opinions. Just focus on making your life better every day. If what you are doing is not working out well for you, check how you are doing it. You might want to change your strategy. If you fail, admit it, learn from it, and move on. But above all, never stop trying new things.
