Albert Einstein said, The only purpose for us being here is to serve
As we look back at this year and forward to ways we can further mold our lives into what we truly desire, lets take an honest look at the service weve provided for our fellow man.
Service is all about finding ways to help others improve the quality of their lives. Excellent service recognizes the absolute importance of the soul in front of you, whether in person, over the phone or as linked by email. From the moment we get up in the morning and begin our interactions with fellow human beings, were serving others.
If you want to measure the difference youre making in peoples lives, the only question you need to ask yourself is this: How big is my serve?
If you are ready to vastly increase your own income, you might ask yourself the same question: How big is my serve?
As Earl Nightingale noted in his audio program, The Lead the Field Seminar, If any person alive is discontented with their rewards, they should examine their service. Action equals reaction. As ye sow, so shall ye reap. What you put out in service will determine what you get back in return.
The only limit to what you are capable of earning is the limit you place on your serve.
I often talk in seminars about the Stretch and Serve concept. To serve at a much higher, more significant level, you must first stretch your imagination. See yourself providing service in a marketplace many times the size of the one youre presently operating in. Write down your annual income on a sheet of paper and ask yourself, How can I turn this annual income into a monthly income? When you begin to work your marvelous imagination around this question, you will surprise yourself with the easy solutions that float to the surface.
When these two conceptsstretch and serveare successfully combined and brought into a working reality, your rewards could run into millions. There are plenty of people in our profession who are proving this!
If youre worried about your income or your future, youre concentrating on the wrong end of the scale. If youre looking back at the year behind you and feeling that youve done little to have an impact on the world around you, youre concentrating on the wrong end of the scale. Its not about getting, its about giving! Concern yourself only with increasing your service, every hour and every day. From there, your future and your income will take care of themselves.
