Creating Good News

Creating Good News You have the power to create good news for yourself and for others.

First, distinguish between giving good news and creating good news. In giving good news, you act as a messenger. In creating good news, you act as a creator.

Acting as a messenger for giving good news is gratifying. But creating good news is exhilarating. You create good news for yourself and for others.

It is much easier to create good news for others. Even though you can create good news for yourself, but allow others to create good news for you.



If you are an employer, creating good news for employees is easy and good for the company. You create good news for an employee when you give her a raise, send her on a trip, move her into a nicer office, appreciate her work, or simply brighten her day with a sincere compliment. (No sexual harassment, please!).

If you are a parent, creating good news for children is easy and good for the family. You create good news for a child when you buy him a toy he wants, let him visit a friend he loves, make his bed, fix him a nice dinner, appreciate his studies, or simply brighten his day with a loving blessing.

Creating good news for your friends, relatives, and neighbors is easier. Buy them lunch. Send them a hello. Listen to them. Find them a better job. Offer to clean their garage, mow their lawn, anything you can do to pleasantly surprise them.

Creating good news needs no social or economic power. You don't have to be an employer, or a parent, or a neighbor to create good news. Whoever you are and in whatever capacity you live your day, you can create good news for others and for yourself.

Even smiling is creating good news.
