Serving others is one of life's most awesome privileges. Albert Schweitzer said, " The only ones among you who will really be happy are those who have sought and found how to serve. " Hunt for the good points in people. Remember they have to do the same in your case. Then do something to help them. If you want to get ahead, be a bridge not a wall. Love others more than they deserve. Dr. Frank Crane said, “The golden rule is of no use unless you realize that it is your move. " Each human being presents us with an opportunity to serve.
John Andrew Holmes said, “The entire population of the universe, with on trifling exception, is composed of others. " Do you want to get along better with others? Be a little kinder than necessary. When you share, you do not lessen, but increase your life.
True leadership begins with servanthood. Harry Fosdick said, “One of the most amazing things ever said on the earth is Jesus’ statement, ‘He that is greatest among you shall be your servant. ’ None have one chance in a billion of being thought of as really great a century after they're gone except those who have been servants of all. "
To know what is right and not do it is as bad as doing wrong. The best way to escape evil is to pursue good. So start your day looking for opportunities for good. . .
