“You can render to God and humanity no greater service than to make the most of yourself.” – Wallace D. Wattles
Do you believe this is true? Now that’s a rhetorical question! Of course this is true. The problem is we don’t think about it very often.
Don’t we all want to serve God and humanity by becoming the best we can be?
Have you given thought to what that looks like for you? Are you working towards it? Why not? If his statement is true, shouldn’t we be doing this?
The first thing we must do is to define what that looks like. From where you are right now, what does it look like for you to make the most of yourself?
I met with a friend recently and it was so exciting to hear about his focus and how he plans to grow his business and literally change an industry that he recognizes needs to change. (Talk about rendering service!)
I was very impressed with the details he had thought through including even things like how to make the most of purchasing insurance for his operations.
The cool thing is, as I heard him describing it there was no doubt in my mind that he was going to accomplish it. And no doubt that he was going to serve society in a major way as he did. If we really think about it, as he creates success it means hiring more people, it means spending more money to purchase things and to utilize the services of others. It means rendering service to God and humanity…
Once we define and have a clear picture of what making the most of ourselves looks like, we take the journey of making it happen. Thinking about and taking steps towards it everyday. And let me encourage you… YOU can do it! YOU have what it takes!
One of the things this means for me is to lead our company to be recognized as one of the top privately owned independent insurance agencies in Florida. Having a positive impact on everybody we come in contact with. I also aspire to help others to discover, develop and live into their potential
What does it look like for you?
I’m right there with you,
