Positivity Project- Supporting Others

This week we are learning about the Other People Matter Mindset (OPM2) element of supporting other people when they struggle. There is a Chinese saying that sums this up: “If you want happiness for an hour, take a nap. If you want happiness for a day, go fishing. If you want happiness for a year, inherit a fortune. If you want happiness for a lifetime, help somebody.”

This week’s example is Austin Perine. Austin, who recently turned 6, works to feed the homeless in Birmingham, AL — and elsewhere. He delivers food and hugs with a message “don’t forget to show love.” When asked how this makes him feel, he said, “When I feed the homeless it makes me really happy and I think what I do is very special. When I grow up I want to be president. My jobs when I become president would be to feed the homeless and to chase the bad guys out of schools.” Here is a video that shows his story!
