When I think about unhappy or dissatisfied folks I think of folks who are self-centered. Their world revolves around themselves and their needs. Those who are external to their self-centered world are satellites orbiting and waiting for instructions on how to serve the self-centered ego. The happiest and most satisfied folks I know are other-centered. They connect with whomever enters their world. They take a sincere interest in them. They offer to help others, encourage others, and rejoice with them when the other succeeds. Ironically, being other-centered doesn’t limit success, it gives it an extra boost. When we build others we are building ourselves. Build on!

I am an optimistic, can do, and never quit guy. The spirit of hope indelibly marks my DNA. My research at The Ohio State University helped people discover the best in themselves and change their personal lives, public organizations, and whole communities. I bring the same spirit and enthusiasm to my blog to help those who grieve who find themselves suddenly alone, navigate their grieving. Join my more than 24,300Twitter (@alwaysgoodstuff).
