In the service of others

It has been a while since I have written, I apologize for those of you who might have been waiting (grin).

Tonight I got the opportunity to read the words of my dear friend Ava Fails who without trying, reminded me that I can and do, make a difference in the lives of others. Which of course is why I get up every day to begin with, and I never want to forget that my moments of joy are those when I get to recognize that I have made a difference, that I have been in the service of another and that the result was positive.

That thought naturally reminded me also that we are most effective, productive, and profitable, when we are in the service of others. When our efforts are not selfishly intended just to benefit us, but in fact are designed and executed to the benefit of others. Think about the stars of the music world, or of the screen, etc (I am sure I have mentioned this at some point), they are rewarded most, when what they produce is a gift to others in some way. Authors, manufacturers, and physicists alike receive most, when their effort and intent, is targeted at some positive result, for another person or persons.

So, want to succeed, become truly wealthy, and feel great?

Be… In the service of others.

  • Thanks Mark. I’m glad my words were there for you at just the right moment. God works in mysterious ways, and it is that reason that our paths crossed in the first place…and why we still smile from memories now. Thanks for everything that you are to many people…a few of which, I know. 🙂
