Marriane Williamson has rightly said about loving each other “Something amazing happens when we surrender and just love. We melt into another world, a realm of power already within us. The world changes when we change. the world softens when we soften. The world loves us when we choose to love the world.”
People are more alike than different. We all live on the same planet. Though there are differences in culture, creed, and colour, still we are happy when we are together.
Don’t be judgemental and biased towards others. This would lead to ill-feeling and malice. Find the thing which is common between you and others. This common thing would hook you together. Look at the good thing in every individual and say that goodness loudly in your mind. Repeat it a few times mentally.
This will help you in loving others. Whenever you think of that person the good feeling about that person would automatically come to your mind.
This kind of thinking will give you mental calmness and confidence. You will be happier with yourself.

Nelson Mandela has rightly said in his world-famous book Long Walk to Freedom “No one is born hating another person because of the colour of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite.”
When you hate no one it also means that you have no grudges with others. This opens the gate of likeness and love within you for others.
You are going to die and you have no idea when you are going to die. This fact of the world is enough in itself to give you a teaching that to hate no one.
Hatred only corrupts your mind. It robs you of mental peace and gives you fidgety feelings. Hatred snatches away your humane quality and puts you on a low pedestal. You won’t ever be happy with yourself when you are living with hatred.

“You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want.” Zig Ziglar has this world-famous quote.
This is so true. Helping others gives you a sense of belongingness and love. You spread positive vibes around you and in return receive more helping hands for your cause.
Helping others keep you in a very good mental stride and you be happy with yourself and others.
Indeed, you can’t help everyone in the world. However, you can help at least one person. And helping one person may make a huge difference in their world.
You are not only giving support to someone but also showing a good example to others how to live in a society with others. Your success depends on your mindset and the application of your thoughts into action.
