Living a ‘good life’ means more than just happiness! In this video series I’ve selected from 101 keywords and discuss how each word can impact your potential to live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous personal and work life.
This is keyword #026 – Courtesy
Reciprocity in its most simple form suggests what you give out you get back. Aristotle’s philosophy suggests “your actions and your behaviours are your morals shown in conduct“.
What are you actions and behaviours telling the world (and your own truth about you) about who you are, your strength of character, your morals and values?
Building intentional trust relationships is an inescapable truth for a prosperous life and one way to earn trust is through applying intentional common courtesy.
How courteous are the people in your life roles toward you? Remember what you give out you give back. In what ways could you be more intentionally courteous toward others? Is common courtesy etched into the fabric of your personal character? Intentionally acting on being more courteous toward others will help you live a more happy, flourishing and prosperous life.
Potentially one of the most quoted thought leaders of all time is Ralph Waldo Emerson and I would like to leave you today with this elegant quote from this great man…..
“Life is not so short but there is always time for courtesy.”
