Every year I buy personalized pens that say "Explore the power of NICE with a random act of kindness (every day)" and I give them out as new year gifts and to total strangers.
My favorite is to give one to a server at a restaurant when I sign my credit card bill (I leave a pen behind for them to find later). I leave them behind wherever I go and give them to crabby people. This is an investment in our world so I don't mind the money it costs to purchase pens.

I try to practice random acts of kindness at least once a day. It can be something as small as holding a door open for someone, letting someone get in line in front of you at the market if they have fewer items and you have a full cart, whatever little things you see. It makes people so happy to be treated to an unexpected kindness and reminds me to be more positive throughout my day.
You can easily move forward by performing a random act of kindness. It does not have to cost anything, smiling at a person, opening the door for another, stopping by someone's page that is not in your group and celebrating them. What this will do is keep your mind focused on living and winning.104
