“It’s Nice To Be Important, But It’s More Important To Be Nice”
– Gordon Hill
This quote is from a group text I get on a daily basis from one of my good friends. You see updating yourself and having others in the same situation helps you get the support you need to become a better person.
So who is Gordon Hill?
• One of my best friends
• Man of god, that strayed away a long time ago
• And we both been down a path only stories are written about
The big idea here is no matter what we’re doing in life, we should always be kind because kindness goes a long way even if you don’t think others really deserve it. Showing kindness shows how true you are, no string attached,
being kind does not cost a thing but your smile and simple gestures that might just make someone’s day.
Here’s how this applies to us and improving one self:
• Doing something kind every day fills your emotional cup
• Being kind shows what your thinking even if you don’t say it
• Simple kind gestures shows your heart
So, let’s put this into action:
• Do small acts of kindness
• Show genuinely that you care
• Always try to do what’s right, especially when nobody else is looking
Oh, and before I forget…
If you’re a disgruntled person who is serious about learning how to put this whole process on steroids, do yourself a favor and follow along where you might just see something I write, make a video or even simply browse what else I have on this page.
Below is the transcript for those of you that might be at work, or on the toilet that don’t want nobody to know your there.
Gordon Wat: 00:06 All right. All right. All right guys. Good morning. Good morning. Good morning. So I had an eventful weekend this weekend, as you guys know, and I want to appreciate all the love, comments, support, likes hearts that you can, you can possibly imagine. And it was an overwhelming response and I just wanted to do this short video that you don’t mean understand that. No, there’s a lot of things going on in the world, but there’s a lot of times that, you know, this is going to be today’s topic. And good morning Michael. You know, I see you guys over there. You know, so we’re going to do this. Keep it short, keep it simple. And uwe’re going to do something that is a little bit different, right? So let’s, let’s,uhow are you doing Marlene? Good morning. So, all right guys. So basically what I’m going to tell you is important, “it’s nice to be important, but it’s more important to be nice.”
Gordon Wat: 00:58 You mean? I know one of the main things that this comes from our group text that I have from some of my group, my friends, they do a group text that we all been in the same situation and we did some certain things in life, but we all, this came from one of my best friends and in fact Michael Jaimes knows him…Gordon Hill, you know, and his quote is from that group and I just want to say it like the topics that he’s one of my best friends, he’s actually a man of God that has changed his life around, you know, just like me and just like how you, and we’re impacting a lot of people that’s going on with, with whatever else going on. Right. You know, and you know, and we both been down a path that most people don’t even come back from, you know, from years in prison to drug addiction and criminality.
Gordon Wat: 01:45 In fact, if you seen us coming down the road and there’s a lot of people here can attest to that, you wouldn’t want to do, do a cross our paths. And that’s why we became such loving, kind individuals turned to the man up above and figure that if we can change any of you can change. And we just want to say that a lot of the times that it takes people that been through some crap, some shit that can actually put you in the right direction, right? So the big idea is the big idea here is no matter what we’re doing in life, we should always be kind because kindness goes a long way. Showing kindness shows how true you are and being kind does not cost you a thing. But a simple smile, a simple opening a door, a simple thing, simple good morning a simple thing that you could change somebody else’s life and momentum going in the way that you might want somebody else to do for you.
Gordon Wat: 02:39 You know? And how is this, how is this? How does this apply to us? And improving oneself, you mean is simply understanding. Couple things, doing something kind every single day. Guys fills your emotional cup so you have to refill it again. You know? And it’s going to be really catchy because a lot of the times being kind goes long way for not just right now. It goes for things going on in the future, going things that you know when you, when you do things out of simple heartness and kindness and being a good person, it kind of catches on and that, that compound effect helps a lot of people understand that there’s certain things that you could do. You mean and being kind shows what you’re thinking, what’s inside your heart, what’s in here and if you, everything is align in one simple purpose. Guys, you know, let’s, let’s, let’s face you guys simple kind gestures shows who you really are and truly really does.
Gordon Wat: 03:34 You know, you know, my, my day job is predicated on what I do being kind and I get paid pretty damn well for just being kind on an everyday basis because I work for gratuities and you know, that goes to show that, you know, being certain, being a certain way versus being a disgruntled person, you know, can I determine whether you’re going to make it or not and where are you going to make your quote or not? And a lot of times that’s what holds people a lot back. You mean? So let’s put this in that. Let’s put this into action now. Do small, do small acts of kindness every single day. I mean, don’t get overboard with it and don’t be an asshole about it. You mean because everybody there, everybody feels more than they, they can actually see right? Show genuinely that you care about this other person you, me show genuinely.
Gordon Wat: 04:29 And let’s basic guys. So you guys on the way. I had a newborn and I’d been waiting for this overwhelming response off feelings that I’ve been missing all my life, eh? Xavia alright, so always try to do the work. Always try to do what’s right, especially when nobody else is looking, you know, because let’s face it, that man up above is going to be your, savior and doing something that might put somebody else on that right path. You know, I pride myself into doing things for the right reasons to inspire people to motivate them to do something greater with their life because there’s a lot of people out there that needs to hear this. Sometimes you meet, a lot of people want to want to fulfill certain things in their life, but they just don’t know where to turn too.
Gordon Wat: 05:23 And a lot of people right here in, in, know my pass seen me do this and I just wanted to keep inspiring people to do the right things because it’s not all about the money, it’s about my family now who, I can help, who I can inspire. And you know, a lot of the times there’s going to be certain these that you know, you might have that you might have a bad, bad day dealing with customers, guess with your business, when you’re with your clients, they just don’t get it. Kill them with kindness and doing and doing something that actually makes you a better person in the eyes of everybody else in the world. Because, let’s see, I’ve been doing this since I got out, so about seven years now, right? Eight years. So it’s like a lot of messages I get from a lot of phone calls and please keep doing what you’re doing because it impacts so many people in a good way and a different way.
Gordon Wat: 06:18 You mean? And I just wanted to say that you know, a lot of the times I might not be the best. I’m, I’m imperfect, I’m human, I make mistakes, but I actually learned from those mistakes. And one of the things that I, I, I can attest to is being kind is one of those things I will never dis dis disarray me from anything else. All right guys. So if you look at, if you’re a disgruntled person right now who is serious about learning how to put this whole process on steroids and just do yourself a favor, guys, follow along. Share this with somebody else. You know, I mean, I mean, I’m only pumping out articles. I’m helping, I’m helping certain other people figure out what they want to do and things that might just be able to push you in the right direction. You don’t mean, because a lot of the times people understand that when you’re kind, there’s always some false belief there. If you’re truly kind and worthy of what’s giving , passing this, this where I would say this authority on, why not share it? Our guys have a beautiful week, I suppose to say I’ve done this Monday, but you know, it’s busy now. All right guys, and I think I hear my son crying and I always wanted to say that. All right guys, love you guys. Have a blessed day, and see you on the next one. Bye…..Aloha
