Teach others by showing kindness, humility and truthfulness

By Ustaz Mark Bang


There are always high chances of respect, honour and admiration when one shows truthfulness, kindness and humility to other individuals encountered in life.

People sometimes treat those with the least privileges with dishonor and that shows they lack spiritual eyes to see what future might be, future could be easily seen perhaps might be pregnant for great opportunities at their doors of success.

So please, I advise us to always be vigilant in all our do (s) or don’t(s), our making whether good or bad wait at is in our future. I love to be kind always right from ways of socializing with both children and elderly people for I know I were a child and will also be an elder. Keeping this mind, look back clearly to those days when you were young and yet people continue to help you and look into your future when you are going to grow all and this people you despise will take over and crying would be your last option.

Opportunities come to us when we least affect it, when it seems there is no hope, when it seems everything is going against us. Sometimes we cannot see them, but they’re there upgrading our being. Sometimes blessings and opportunities come to make us better stronger and help use see and dream more than we thought we could. Sometimes we have to trust the process more and stress less about how everything is going to work out. Believe that everything is happening for your highest good, divinely inspired and orchestrated all is well.

If you concentrate on finding what is good in every situation, you will discover that your life will suddenly be filled with gratitude. The greatest way to make your blessings count is to count your blessings. Acknowledging the good things you already have in your life is the essence, because, whatever you appreciate and give thanks for, will grow stronger in your life. Stopping yourself from doing what is good, is not the same as choosing what is right and doing it.

Don’t stand on the verge of being good, be as good as you can be. If you can make someone’s doing by a simple act of kindness, make it. Set the bar of success for yourself as high as the best that you can be, not as low as avoiding the worst that you can be.

People are often unreasonable, illogical and self-centered; forgive them anyway. If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives; be kind anyway. If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies; succeed anyway. If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you; be honest anyway and frank anyway. What you spend years building, someone could destroy overnight; build anyway. If you find serenity and happiness, they may be jealousy; be happy anyway. The good you do today; people will forget tomorrow; do good anyway. Give the world the best you have and it may never be enough; give the world the best you’ve got anyway. You see in the final analysis, it is between you and God, it never was between you and them anyway.

Please stop going back to the same people who keep hurting. You remove them for reason. Yes, they may keep knocking at your door, but you don’t have to open it anymore. Every time you do, they repeat the same cycle and you stay at stuck. You deserved to be treated with respect. Sure, no one is perfect, but people who hurt your heart too much never give it a chance to heal. It’s finally a time to learn to let go off the people and the things that they don’t make you feel happy.

However, it’s okay if the way you have chosen was wrong. It’s okay if you were not able to achieve. It’s okay if they don’t want you anymore. It’s okay if you are different. It’s okay if your dreams are childish for them. It’s okay if you haven’t had the degree. It’s okay if you are not taken care of. It’s okay if you haven’t had a wife or job. It’s okay if you are denied. It’s okay if you have been given a blind cheque. It’s okay for the time being you have to be alone. It’s okay if they call you freak.

But always remember you are you, and it won’t be okay if you stop chasing what you desire to be. Just for more things and few fickle people. Nobody knows everything. It is impossible to have all the answers to every issue that arises on your team. And acting like you do won’t do you any favors. That’s not to say you shouldn’t display confidence as a leader – it just means that you need to temper your confidence with humility. Humble leaders know they don’t have all the knowledge or answers; therefore, they actively listen to learn. They also know their own limitations and that self-awareness helps them get better.

Here’s why humility is so essential to effective leadership and to business in general, according to members. A humble leader recognizes when he or she makes mistakes and recognizes that she or he doesn’t know it all.

Humility keeps you grounded in business and allows one to find the necessary resources, human or financial to improve the bottom line. Being authentically humble humanizes a leader, strengthens trust, and builds confidence and loyalty among others. Humility is the trait that magnifies all other positive attributes. Without humility, all of a leader’s other strengths become diminished, if not invisible. The importance of having humility as a leader is that it allows one to remain curious.

If a leader is humble and curious, he or she will be more likely to ask questions and to truly listen to the responses of those he or she is leading. When true curiosity and listening are at the base of a culture, people feel valued and included in everything the organization is doing. “Public Staunchest Ally “
