Help create a perpetual kindness machine…

Self-imposed limitations: A tough pill to swallow
Success isn't just about accomplishment
If my work has helped make a positive difference in your life, please consider saying thanks by making a donation. Every dollar makes a difference. If you cannot afford a dollar, consider leaving some positive feedback. Every form of encouragement is always appreciated. If you like it, encourage it. Thank you. ~ Zero Dean

Help create a perpetual kindness machine by actively helping to support and encourage those who help support and encourage others.

Help create a perpetual kindness machine by actively helping to support and encourage those who help support and encourage others.

I think we sometimes forget that the little things we do — that don’t seem like much or take much effort — can make a big difference in other people’s lives.

This is what I meant when I said:

Never underestimate the power of a single act of kindness to make a significant difference in someone’s life. Your act may just be the added lift that someone needs to go from falling to flying.”

Here are some of those simple things:

  • Looking someone in the eye when you say “Thank you.” and sincerely meaning it.
  • Saying “You’re welcome” to others — clearly — and with meaning.
  • Artists, writers, and creative-types who create content are almost always “starving artists”. Helping to bring a greater awareness to their work is one of the kindest things you can do. Social media makes this easy. Even a single “like” to an artist’s page can be encouraging.

Regarding your sources of online entertainment and education:

Providing feedback to these places is HUGE.

Sending a short “thank you” email or positive feedback to web sites (yes, even BIG ones — but especially little ones) or people who help make your online experience more enjoyable is extremely encouraging. While likes and +1s and shares are awesome — actually sending written positive feedback expressing why you like what you like is extremely valuable to those who create original content.

* And any time you happen to be on the receiving end of positive feedback, save it and refer to it later! This is what positive feedback folders are for!
