Servant!

The word for today is to serve.

To be a servant you must be a mature person.

The mature person is the one who puts the others first, while the immature person is the one who puts himself first.

Our ego is in a strong minority in a world full of billions of people. Investing only in ourselves and believing that we are at the center of the world leads to a brutal failure to say the least!

Being a servant means intentionally helping people around us to solve their problems and find the purpose on which to invest their lives.

By serving others we will find the right place for our talents and add value to those we serve with our resources, advice, examples, thus offering a winning model to replicate.

True success lies in serving and not in being served!

The path to success is not to go up but to go down.

Those who truly love themselves demonstrate this by loving and serving others.

This model can be seen in the most influential historical figures whose memory remains and grows even after their departure.

Often the main question is who will take our place.

The answer I found is nobody!

Nobody, because during a life of service we have multiplied ourselves in others by adding our potential in their lives.

Perhaps, in this perspective, the famous words “who loses his life will find it” will gain a sense in your mind.

To lose one’s life does not mean to die but to serve others by investing in them.

I would say that the more we go down and the more we pull ourselves up!

The choice is ours!
