People always need something: attention, pleasure, money, love… Some fight for that. Some work hard. Some just wait for these things to come.
There is nothing much new in what I am going to tell you now, but it could be a good reminder.
Whatever we desire (appreciation, power, money) it is finally all about getting LOVE. Everything else is just the instrument or the means.
BUT HOW TO GET LOVE?
I remember reading one very wise quotation- could not find the source then – that says something like that:
IF YOU NEED LOVE, GIVE LOVE AND YOU WILL FIND LOVE.
As easy as that. Have you ever tried it out?
In fact, it can be applied to any other “needs”:
If you need money – support with the little you have the one who needs it more.
If you need appreciation – praise people!
If you need power – use the power of love!
I believe many people do function this way and follow this rule, if not consciously than unconsciously.
Are you one of them?
