I remember listening to a quote by famous speaker Zig Ziglar where he said:
“I will get everything I want by helping you get everything you want”.
The key that many very successful people understand is that providing great service is essential to their success. They embrace that concept to where it becomes a model in everything they do. And those who neglect this often find themselves going out of business. Embrace the idea of being of service to others and there is a great chance you will find success.
Provide service to other people just like you; people who are in a place where you once were. These are people who are looking for a helping hand; someone to help them move forward. You may have already figured out a solution to help you move forward. Now, it’s time to pay it forward by helping another person move forward as well.
Use your creative gifts too reach, touch and inspire others to move forward by showing them what you did.
I have a daughter that can sing like an angel. It is clear to her mother and I that her voice is the tool or gift she will use to create greater life for those she encounters. The greatest gift that we can leave in the world is the gift of love, compassion, and empathy for others. When we decide to focus on these three things in all we do, then we are able to reach the people that we need to reach.
Once we decide to be of service to all and spread love, compassion, and empathy, we create greater light and everyone around us become better stronger people. And, that is our purpose.
Think of a problem that you previously struggled with. Think of a question in your life that you have found a solution for. Now deliver that solution to someone in need with your creative faculties. Don’t think about how you’re going to be compensated or how you’re going to be rewarded. Just go out and do. Then repeat the process over and over again.
Listen to no one but the voice within. Usually that voice will always guide you in the right direction.
You may have the gift of speech. You may have the gift of reading. You may have the gift of song. Whatever your gift is, you can use to provide a solution to a group of people. That is how you become clear on what it is you need to do.
