Do you have a desire to be influential?
What comes to your mind when you think of influence? Is it money or it is leadership through rendering service to others?
In this blog, I would like to encourage you to prioritise the habit of influencing those around yyou through selfless acts of love and service. There is greater fulfilment in living life for the greater good of others,. When you do that, let me tell you that you would have discovered your purpose and life would become more sweeter and fulfilling.
There are so many ways in which all of us can serve others and look out for each other. Some can do it through leading from the front as community leaders, providing solutions for others, being problem solvers and having genuine concern for other people's well being. This is a great sign of leadership and when you do that, it will become so much easier to continue adding value in others and finally you will get rewarded for that. Its a good sign for one to serve passionately without even thinking of reards and when you keep that habit of service, you will likely to automatically get rewarded for it in one way or the other.
Become intentional about your goals
I encourage you to become intentional about your goal of aiming to help others and making a difference in their lives. The good thing with such an approach is that you will never experience failure and its associated disappointments. How can you feel a sense of failure when your motive is mainly service rather than profit?
Great people who have gone on to make massive differences in the lives of other people have always been driven not by personal ambition but by the good of others. These are our celebrated heroes. You too can become a celebrated hero in your family, community, nation and your world through compassion on others, being thoughtful and service to others. Gone are the days when businesses used to thrive on brutal 'Dragon's Den' approaches yet the modern digital economy approaches are mainly soft and persuasive as in Online Marketing. It is is more of a collaborative way of doing business through utilising humane and close interpersonal engagements. It looks at identifying a need or a dilemma that someone is facing and then seeks to provide solutions. Solution providers are leaders.
When we think of doing business or venturing in a money producing activity, the main problem I tend to see is that everyone is looking for money as an end in itself. In my opinion, that way of looking at life seems to be short-sighted, as there is quite a lot that one can do just by serving others. Longer term goals and bigger goals should have a macro focus, bigger than just the 'me,myself and I' mindset.
One way of looking at life would to ask yourself
- "what legacy would I be known for?
- what is it that's going to outlive me?
- whose life would I transform on this earth?"
These sort of questions are normally good in triggering in you a desire to live out your purpose. When you live out to help others and seeing changes in other people's lives, you will be making a difference and in no time, you can easily get rewarded for it and you feel fulfilled.
