Thank you for allowing me to serve you. That has been my goal since I started my business 14 years ago.
Here's an interesting quote I read recently from Albert Schweitzer:
"One thing I know: the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who have sought and found how to serve."
Aim to be a 'generational success'. Desire to become a role model for generations in your family you'll never meet. Who we are, our good and bad, gets passed forward generationally. Pass the GREATEST you forward.
Stand up for your values and beliefs. If you see something you don't agree with, don't be afraid to stand up and say something.
Be yourself. If you want to be a role model, you cannot be phony. Some people think role models have to be famous or amazing. But you don't have to be spectacular to become a role model. By being respectful, helpful, kind and most importantly, yourself, you will set the example for generations to come.
Work hard in everything that you do, not just your business. Role models aren't admired because of their greatness, but rather the determination it took to get there.
It may seem like a great deal of pressure to be a positive role model. But no one is expecting you to be perfect. You can only do your best. And, if you mess up today, you can always try again tomorrow. Good role models know they can do anything if they simply put their mind to it.
