I know an individual who has the ability to help others see what is good about themselves. I asked him, "What thoughts go through your mind when you meet someone?"
"I always mentally bless people with success in what is important to them," he replied.
When you wish people success in your mind -- even though others don't know what you are thinking -- you radiate positive energy. King Solomon wrote: "As water reflects a face back to face, so one's heart is reflected back to him by another" (Proverbs 27:19).When your heart and mind generate positive energy, others feel good about themselves and about you.
(from Rabbi Pliskin's book, "Kindness: Changing People's Lives for the Better")
