Nicer is the new successful

Amy Christie

Spreading goodwill, cheerfulness, and kindness is a way to benefit others and yourself. When you show compassion and empathy in all daily interactions, your life will be enriched. Wellness and inner happiness will improve every aspect of your life.

How to know if you are a nice person

You may already be nice and downplay it or not even notice it.

Here are a few signs that point out you are a nice person, even if no one told you yet:

  • You are honest
  • You take responsibility for your actions and decisions
  • You are polite and courteous
  • You help others whenever you can
  • You support other people to succeed
  • You often pay heartfelt compliments
  • You look at each dispute in a fair way
  • You own up to your mistakes and find a way to learn from them
  • You are selfless
  • You try to picture things from someone else’s point of view and put yourself in their shoes.

Niceness shows in the way you treat the people you meet, and how you react to difficulties or potential conflicts.

How can you become a nicer person?

Adding more niceness and empathy in your life will reap amazing benefits and you will soon notice that communication and every interaction will become more pleasant.

Here is what you can do to become a nicer person today:

1. Take up a gratitude journal

Practicing gratitude daily and reminding yourself that you have much to be thankful for is a great way to keep an open mind and avoid criticizing or judging others. Gratitude will get rid of stress and make it easier to find solutions to life struggles and difficulties.

2. Help as much as you can

There are so many ways to be helpful. Start with a simple smile at the grocery store, help co-workers who deal with difficult tasks, or neighbors who could use a babysitter or someone to look after pets. The possibilities are endless.

3. Forgive yourself, let go of the past

Don’t hold on to resentment. It will make you bitter and throw a permanent shade on your life. It’s natural to be nice when you feel good about who you are. So, forgive yourself past mistakes and use negative experiences to fuel learning and a winning mindset.

4. Respect other people’s needs

As you go about your day, remember to keep looking at things from other people’s perspectives. Come up with things that will make it easier for them to cope with struggles. Put their needs on the same level as yours. All lives are valuable, and we each deserve a helping hand, a hug, and an honest smile.

Be the one who gives all three, and you will be a better person each day.
