  1. To talk goodness is not good,to do it is.I will go with points 1,4 & 7.Anger and hatered is a poison which eat us from inside and harm us only.So we should know how to overcome and control it.Goal of being better than other person low down our own values so, instead of worrying about other person’s success we should concentrate on enhancing ourselves.Change is a law of nature & the one who is adaptive to change can survive.Change is for betterment but change could not be done at the cost of our good values.

  2. You’ve got to open your arms to change. But don’t let go of your values.

    It’s your values that tell you which changes should be made and how to make them. For example, if you value family, then a change that promises to make you more money but lose time with your family would not be a good change. If you value honesty but your sales manager requires you to say “Whatever it takes to sell the merchandise,” then changing to a new job may be necessary. Hold on to your values.

  3. I will go with point 7 “Open your arms to change, but do not let go of your values”
    You are going to change and grow throughout your life, but that does not mean that your values have to change as well. Welcome new places, new faces and new loves, but never change those core parts of you unless you have strong reasons to believe you were wrong to believe them in the first place.

  4. A good person welcome and respect the concept and experience of failure. Nothing takes them further in their own learning, and nor does anything teach them or redirect their efforts more fully or quickly than failure. Genius will not; talent will not; but hard work and a willingness to learn are the qualities that take outstanding people wherever they want to go. If we want to be outstanding, we must learn not to stand in fear of our failures; rather, we must learn to build upon them.

  5. According to me “If you can cultivate the right attitude, your enemies are your best spiritual teachers because their presence provides you with the opportunity to enhance and develop tolerance, patience, and understanding.”Moreover, Hard times build determination and inner strength. Through them, we can also come to appreciate the uselessness of anger. Instead of getting angry nurture a deep caring and respect for troublemakers because by creating such trying circumstances they provide us with invaluable opportunities to practice tolerance and patience.”

  6. In my point of view ” Human potential is the same for all. Your feeling, “I am of no value”, is wrong. Absolutely wrong. You are deceiving yourself. We all have the power of thought – so what are you lacking? If you have willpower, then you can change anything. It is usually said that you are your own master. Besides “If you have fear of some pain or suffering, you should examine whether there is anything you can do about it. If you can, there is no need to worry about it; if you cannot do anything, then there is also no need to worry.”

  7. I will go with point no 8 i.e Share your knowledge. When you share with others, it helps deepen your own knowledge and engrains what you know. … You have your own unique set of skills, knowledge and experience. Think about all the ways you can use it to impact others’ lives. Sharing your knowledge with colleagues is a great service.

  8. I think what you sow..you will reap.
    If you sow anger and hatred inside you.. You cannot have tolerance and patience….
    Being good means you have to love more to yourself than giving love to others…
    Be open minded and accept all challenges in life.

  16. According to me no.2 is always better because Open-heartedness is associated with being warm and kind, an emotional quality. Open-mindedness is a mental quality, associated with being impartial and receptive to new ideas. The heart and mind do like to work together. So a closed heart links to a closed mind and an open heart links to an open mind.

  18. Greetings of the day! The topic and points both are quite relevant. Good ness is much needed trait in our personalities and it is something that comes from within. It is naturally inherent in us. Anger is sometimes a positive trait as well as it helps us to show our existence to some people but yes, most of the times it is considered to be a negative trait because anger takes away sense of right or wrong, So, better to win over it. Be ready to change and never be stingy to appreciate. Goodness begets goodness. Do good, find good. Knowledge is not something to be hidden rather to be shared. I guess following these thoughts may lead us all towards wholesome goodness.

  19. We should always open our arms for change but should never leave our values. We all need to adapt over time in our lives. It’s an important tool set for us to move forward. By accepting the change we are mentally able to accept anything in life.

  20. Accepting change but not letting go your values, in my opinion, is a trait to be a good person. Doing good is not to be good in doing things. But it is a way of life in which we do not overlook our ethics, our values. We just follow what is taking us towards well being of ourselves as well as of others.

  21. An open heart means an awareness of the beauty and rights of the human being standing before you being equal to your own be they a relative or not. On open heart means understanding that outward behaviour does not relate to inner value.It means recognising that the place one lands in the world largely dictates their religion, politics and outward behaviour. But these reactions of ours have no place in our behaviour. Lets face it when we let this stuff move from thought to action we are indulging ourselves only. No adult tantrum throwing is ever going to create great outcomes. Never does, never will.

    Emotional maturity equals leashing the knee-jerk reactions to life. It means acting intentionally which requires thought. It means an open mind and an open heart. And mostly it means being responsible for self.

  22. Your open mind can help you to think different thoughts, receive criticisms more willingly, and change your long-held positions on things. But an open heart allows you to let others into your world, and allows you to get into theirs. An open heart allows you to increase the types and depths of experiences you can have by orders of magnitude. That allows you to get exposure to different stories, different information, different wisdom. And all that adds up (so long as your mind is as open as your heart) to more wisdom of your own.
    In the same way that an open mind is about leaving fear behind, so is an open heart. Being open with your feelings, and being open to the feelings of others is about realizing that you are not merely your emotions or convictions. Yes, those things move you, and are important to respect, but they are not who you are. And when you can admit that about yourself and others, you can walk openly into conversations without need for a guard. You can be vulnerable without fear of mortal emotional injury. You can ask others to do the same, knowing that they should not be afraid. You can connect, because the connectors are clear of interference.
    The open mind allows you think differently.
    The open heart allows you to feel differently.
    Both are infinitely important in the journey to wiser living.

  23. According to me , point no. 8 is more important.Sharing knowledge is uplifting. It makes you happy and proud of yourself. Your self-esteem goes up and you become a happier person.Humans have always been this way, not sharing their knowledge with competitors but with some of their own. However it varies from one individual to another who he thinks is one of his own. Hence we have team building and bonding activities which have become a place for party and stress relieving rather than serving its actual purpose. There have to be more initiatives to building a team and bonding between the team members which will definitely enhance the process of knowledge sharing.

  28. According to me ,A loving atmosphere at home is the foundation of the life .The concepts that the purpose of life is happiness, that happiness is determined more by the state of one’s mind than by one’s external conditions, circumstances, or events—at least once one’s basic survival needs are met and that happiness can be achieved through the systematic training of our hearts and minds. Family plays a very important role in successful life.
