Successful Entrepreneurs Win with Kindness

random acts of kindnessOne of our Facebook friends, Alex Blackwell, is the person behind The Bridgemaker blog. He launched an interesting project today: 31 days of kindness.

It’s a great post. He talks the BIGG difference that kindness has made in his life. So he’s encouraging all of us to make kindness a daily habit.

Listen to this post on The BIGG Success Show podcast:

Since we think we could use a little more kindness in the world, we thought we’d chime in.

Kindness is contagious

Researchers have found that kindness is contagious. It makes us feel good to see someone helping another person. It makes us want to do the same thing.

Kindness accumulates happiness

Another study shows that there is a link between kindness and happiness. Happier people tend to be more kind. Kindness leads to more happiness. So happy people become even happier by being kind. Kindness accumulates happiness!

Successful entrepreneurs win with kindness

Many potential entrepreneurs make a critical mistake: they think about their own gain. It kills the business.

Successful entrepreneurs think about helping a group of people (i.e. their customers) solve a problem. Then they kill them with kindness to keep them coming back again and again. Repeat business leads to BIGG success!

So, at its essence, entrepreneurship is about kindness – creating value for yourself by adding value in the lives of other people. If kindness is contagious, maybe entrepreneurship is as well!

    Good thoughts! Kindness isn’t just for entreprenuers and business folks — it’s for everyone, everywhere. I doubt a person who is a miserable SOB in every facet of their life could turn on kindness engine only when they are at work. At least, not for very long. In the end, you do what you are.

    As luck would have it, I just put a post on my own blog today about the Myth of getting angy.
