    Give a little kindness

    A negative attitude can be contagious. Fortunately, so can a positive attitude.

    One of the biggest challenges of staying positively focused can come from the negative people who cross your path. Yet instead of letting them get you down, you can choose to lift them up.

    When someone is rude to you, the most powerful response is not to reply with your own rudeness. After all, what would that accomplish?

    Your best choice in such a situation is to respond with courtesy, kindness, consideration and understanding. Though it may seem strange and unnatural at first, it can have a profoundly positive impact on the situation.

    Most people, when given the chance, will be glad for you to rescue them from their own negative momentum. When you come across someone who is clearly in a bad mood, you have the opportunity to be the best part of that person's day.

    Seize that opportunity and make the most of it. When you give a little kindness, it can make a big, big difference.
