According to Matthieu Ricard, “Empathy is the faculty to resonate with the feelings of others. When we meet someone, who is joyful, we smile. When we witness someone in pain, we suffer in resonance with his or her suffering.” In this short video, we see the power that empathy has when two people connect over their different walks of life.
This year consider taking a different approach to the holiday period. Be true to yourself. Connect with your friends and family. Understand the positives in your life by helping others that are less fortunate than you are. Wear with pride your hand-knitted reindeer jumper. Take time to educate yourself and work towards removing any money misconceptions that may be holding you back from reaching your personal financial empowerment.
And, if you already compiling a list of New Year’s Resolutions, stick to realistic and attainable goals that lead toward changes that you want to see and make in the world.
