Your Life Has Value So Long …

"One's life has value so long as one attributes value to the life 
of others, by means of love, friendship, indignation. and compassion."
-Simon de Beauvoir

When you meet people, don't focus on what you can get from them.
Instead, focus on what you can do to make them feel better about 
themselves. Focus on how you can bring out the best in them. 
If you can't make feel good about themselves, don't make them 
feel bad about themselves.

Whatever you think you can do to make other people get what
they want, do it. You have what it takes to change a life, a village.
Remember, you get what you give out. When you help others
to get better in life, the world will help you back. 

If you want to be successful, make it a habit of helping one person 
every day. 

Work On Yourself, Not Others

"Even if you seek to harm an enemy, you should remove your own defects and cultivate good qualities. Through that you will help yourself, and the enemy will be displeased."- Nagarjuna

Do not try to fix, to change another person. Do not try to do to others what you can't do to yourself. Before you try to change another person, you must first change yourself. 
Focus on what you can do for yourself, not what others can do for you. You will enjoy your life even more than you are enjoying now if you can just focus on working on yourself. 

Work on yourself. It is you. Life is all about you. Do not be scared to confront life. Because if you do not do it, no one is going to help you get rid of your defects. If you want your defects to go away, you must be true to yourself. 
Whatever you want from others, just do it for yourself. When you do, others will do the same.
