A man once went into a coffee shop. When the waitress came for his order, he said, "I'd like a cup of coffee and a kind word." The waitress returned with the coffee. "And how about the kind word?" the man asked. "Don't drink the coffee," the waitress s replied. Sometimes we find that the greatest kindness is useful and accurate information or advice. We don't always need for somebody to compliment us, but we always need to know the best course of action for us to take in any given situation. When we are unsure about what direction to take in life, it is important to ask for help. Find the right person who understands your problem. Whatever our problem in life, there is almost always someone around who can point us in the direction of a solution. Don't ask merely for words of compliment when what you need is a solution to a dilemma.
