Are You Serving?

When you help other people, you are not helping them, you are helping yourself. We live to serve. No matter who you are, where you live, where you work, you have the power to help one person. Do not run after success. Run after people. Find a place to serve people. When you help enough people, success will follow you. When you help enough people to find meaning in their lives, meaning will follow you. When you are successful, help other people to reach their goals in life. Life is helping. Life is serving. Life is love.

If you want to live a successful life, help enough people reach their goals in life. A meaningful life is better than a successful life. Because success comes from helping enough people reach their own goals. Don’t disconnect yourself from people. When you serve people, they will serve you. They will never let you down. They will help you succeed. If you want to keep your job, help your boss keep his or her work. Life will give you what you put into it. If you want to receive help from other people, you must first help other people. Are you ready?

If You Make A Mistake, Own It, Or It Will Own You

“Through our failures we learn more about what we don’t know.”

Own your mistakes. They are yours. When you make mistakes, don’t blame others for them. Blame yourself for them. When you blame yourself for your mistakes, you will have no other choice than to face your mistakes, to learn from them, to understand them, to own them, to fix them, and move on.

But if you do the opposite, if you abandon your mistakes and walk away, if you blame others for your own mess, for your own problems, for your ignorance, for your own carelessness, you neglect yourself, your spirit, your happiness, your joy, your health, and your inner life. If you are afraid of making mistakes, you are afraid of growing.

The only way to real growth is through the gate of mistakes. Are you scared of that gate?

When you blame other people for your mess, when you blame your partner, your kids, your government, your boss, your friends, you reduce yourself. You will learn more from your mistakes if you take responsibility for them. Don’t blame anyone but yourself. It is hard to do, but if you can take responsibility for your behavior, you open the door to your personal and professional growth. Mistake is a way forward, not backward. Make it!
