139: Be Good For Good with Anthony Muiruri
Anthony was born and grew up in a village in Kenya. A place where you had to work with your hands in the garden to put food on the table. Earlier on in life, he learned many lessons from experiences of watching and interacting with people as he grew up. He uses these lessons to inspire and motivate people, especially the youth through his talks. One of the big lessons he stresses is the virtue of goodness. He has recently authored a book, BE GOOD FOR GOOD.
Three Key Points:
Much of the separation we feel in our lives comes from thinking we are so different than others. We look at our parents, where we go to school and where we live and believe we are very different than others. I’d like to share that we are different, we are unique.
In many ways, we are all the same. We want to be loved and appreciated for who we are and what we have to offer. We want to make a difference in the world in a way that we experience the joys of others benefiting from what we have to share.
It is learning that the unique part of you is what helps you see that you are lovable and deserving of not just others’ appreciation but your own. When you love and appreciate yourself, you will be able to see that we are all the same in our unique ways. Then and only then you will be able to receive the love and appreciation of others.
