How to be the green light in the life of your loved ones, Feat. Albert Einstein

Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. 
Albert Einstein [1879-1955]

Life can be so interesting, unexpected, surprising, beautiful, and yet challenging, frightening, stressful and exhausting. You can't control what is going to happen and very often you can't influence the outcome of your actions either. But you can influence your feelings and your mind-set about it.

You can't influence people or events, but you can influence your feelings, your reactions and your expectations toward people and events. In short, you can influence yourself.

Furthermore you can choose which persons are going to be part of your life, part of your network, part of your day. And you can do even more: you can help them, support them, be there for each one of them and make a difference in their life.

You can be their rainbow on a rainy day, or just a very special signal light with an encouraging green light that says: "Go, you can do it!".
You can make a difference in their life, in your life and in the world. How? Day after day, smile after smile, step by step.

Do you believe it? Can you do it?
And even more important: do you want it?

Lerne vom Gestern, lebe fürs Heute, hoffe aufs Morgen. Das Wichtigste ist, nicht aufzuhören, sich Fragen zu stellen. 
Albert Einstein [1879-1955]

Das Leben kann zwar so interessant, unerwartet, überraschend, schön, aber auch  herausfordernd, erschreckend, stressig und anstrengend sein. Man kann nicht beherrschen, was passieren wird, und es ist selten, dass man das Ergebnis der eigenen Taten beeinflussen kann. Man kann aber die eigenen Gefühle und die eigene Geisteshaltung beeinflussen.

Man kann weder Leute noch Vorgänge beeinflussen, aber man kann die eigenen Gefühle dazu,  die Reaktionen darauf und die Erwartungen daran beeinflussen.
Kurz gefasst, man kann sich selbst beeinflussen.

Man kann nicht nur das, sondern auch die Leute auswählen, welche ein Teil des eigenen Lebens, Netzwerks und Tags werden. Weiterhin kann man diejenige unterstützen, für sie da sein, ihnen helfen und einen Unterschied in ihren Leben machen.

Man kann der Regenbogen an einem regnerischen Tag für sie sein, oder auch nur eine Art besondere Ampel, die eine ermutigendes grünes Licht zeigt, welches "Los, Du schaffst es!" bedeutet.
Man kann einen Unterschied in ihren Leben, im eigenen Leben und in der Welt machen. Wie genau? Tag für Tag, Lächeln für Lächeln, Schritt für Schritt.

Glaubt Ihr das? Könnt Ihr das?
Und noch wichtiger: Möchtet Ihr es überhaupt?

Imparate da ieri, vivete nell'oggi, sperate nel domani. Ciò che conta è non smettere di porsi delle domande.
Albert Einstein [1879-1955]

La vita può essere così interessante, inaspettata, sorprendente, bella eppure impegnativa, spaventosa, stressante e spossante. Non potete controllare quello che sta per succedere e molto spesso non potete nemmeno influenzare i risultati delle vostre azioni, ma potete influenzare i vostri sentimenti e il vostro atteggiamento mentale a riguardo.

Non potete influenzare le persone o gli eventi, ma potete influenzare i vostri sentimenti, le vostre reazioni e le vostre aspettative rispetto alle persone e agli eventi. In breve, potete influenzare voi stessi

Potete inoltre decidere quali persone faranno parte della vostra vita, del vostro network, delle vostre giornate. E potete fare persino di più: potete aiutarle, sostenerle, esserci per ognuna di loro e fare la differenza nella loro vita.

Potete essere il loro arcobaleno in una giornata piovosa o anche solo una sorta di lampione molto speciale, con una luce verde incoraggiante che dice: " Forza, ce la puoi fare!".
Potete fare la differenza nella loro vita, nella vostra vita e nel mondo. Come? Giorno per giorno, sorriso dopo sorriso, passo dopo passo. ou can make a difference in their life, in your life and in the world. How? Day after day, smile after smile, step by step.

Potete crederci? Potete farlo?
E persino più importante: volete farlo?
