What does it mean to have a servant’s heart? It means looking for a way to serve others and being joyful when you do. It means helping those around you reach their goals and helping them realize their dreams. It is said that putting the dreams or desires of others first is the surest path to success in all areas of life. That’s seems easy when you are talking about your children, spouses, family and friends. We want to help them succeed, even at our own expense. It’s a little more of a challenge when you put the needs of a stranger, or a person that you work with, ahead of your own desires and wishes.
It’s said that when you help others achieve their goals, people that you don’t even know will help you achieve your dreams and goals. Maybe it’s just that simple.
Something to Think About
What if everyone in the world woke up each day thinking; “How can I help someone today?” It starts with just one person. Let that person be you. This even works with prospecting. Call with service in mind and ask how you can help them answer any real estate question or need they might have!
This week be the person you needed when things were really tough to all those around you. Find joy and purpose in the service of others. Being a positive influence and changing lives doesn’t cost a thing, and the rewards are immense!
