The Classic Pamela Positive: “Find the People Who Can Make You a Better Person.” – Ted Danson

 

“My philosophy is, don’t hang on to whatever degree of success or celebrity you have,” he explains. “Find the smartest people you can and work with them, even if it means taking a smaller role. Get lost in something that inspires you. Find the people who can make you a better person. That’s how you stay fresh.”

- Ted Danson

 

How true is this. You always want to find great people with whom to work! Then you excel, soar, float and can contribute to the world even more strongly.

Did you know that people who love what they do are 50% more likely to report being rated as meeting or exceeding expectations at work?¹ And it follows that people who work around likeminded people with similar values are more likely to stay. You have work you love, and people that you love. A great (and sometimes rare) combination!

Looking for it? Match up with a good-hearted, values-based team, doing something that you love. Then, identify organizations doing something you love. Or, you can donor vice versa! With both in mind, at some point, both will fall into place.

You’ll learn, grow, and ascend. You will make the world better. Plus it’s so much more fun!

Live With Great People Everyday,

Pamela

Christian D. Larson (1874 – 1962) was a New Thought leader and teacher, as well as a prolific author of metaphysical and New Thought books.  He is credited by Horatio Dresser as being a founder in the New Thought movement.  Many of Larson’s books remain in print today, nearly 100 years after they were first published, and his writings influenced notable New Thought authors and leaders, including Religious Science founder, Ernest Holmes.

Larson, of Norwegian origin, was born in Iowa and attended Iowa State College and a Unitarian theological school in Meadville, PA.  While little is known about his personal life and what led to his studies in mental science, what is known is its logical teachings appealed to Larson’s analytical mind and led him to discover that combining theology and science could provide a practical and systematic philosophy of life.  During his time he was honorary president of the International New Thought Alliance and lectured extensively during the 1920s and 1930s.  He was a colleague of such notables as William Walker Atkinson, Charles Brodie Patterson, and Home of Truth founder Annie Rix Militz.  He developed the Optimist Creed in use today by Optimist International, better known as the Optimist Clubs.

He married wife Georgea L DuBois on February 14, 1918. They had two children, Louise DuBois Larson (born 1920) and Christian D. Larson Jr. (born 1924). The family lived in Beverly Hills for many years.
