In all of my relationships (whether personal, professional or casual) when I come from love it empowers, ignites, and shows me I need never fear the outcome because love reminds me my only purpose is to serve.
When I serve I no longer fear rejection, disapproval, failure, miscommunication, unmotivated employees, missed deadlines, lack of resources, lost sales, unhappy customers, and the list goes on and on.
How might your world be different if you always ask:
- How can I serve the person in front of me right now?
- What problem can I solve for them?
- What difference can I make?
Constantly seeking to please creates a culture of mistrust and disingenuous friendliness. But only every time.
Stop trying to please everyone. Whether or not someone likes you for your decisions, your ethics, your products or the way you tie your shoes is not your story.
Your success and organizational growth won’t come because you’ve won someone over or networked your way into a contract. Your employees, customers, vendors, peers, family members, and friends love and respect you because you serve them.
