Who did I serve?

By
Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

I was serving at a church one day years ago and I was backstage. I saw a plaque mounted over the door that led directly to the stage. The band walked through that door for every service. The plaque read, “He must become greater and I must become less”. You may be surprised how many church musicians approach the stage with anything but humility.

One day when I was training and recruiting for a real estate office, I thought to myself at the end of the day, “Who did I serve today?” That question can give us quite the answer. Did we serve our ego? Did we serve our pride? Or did we serve the others that we came in contact with. That day, I realized all these men and women were sons and daughters of other people.  Now if you had your 3 or 4 year old son or daughter in the care of an adult, would you hope the adult was focusing on serving their child or themselves?

I have never been blessed to have children. But I imagine if I had been lucky enough to be a parent that I would pray for those who watched over my children. So I remind myself from time to time, coworker, affiliate, client, prospect, they are all someone’s son or daughter. Even if they are 102 years old. People show me grace and kindness and I must do the same. And at the end of each day keep track by asking, “Who did I serve today?”

Rocky ego and pride are very common among sales people, so it is something we have to constantly keep in check.

It is a good time to include service to others in our resolutions for the new year. Many are facing troubled times.

Hi Rocky- we all get wrapped up in our own little world that we forget that the people we meet are human beings who have parents or children and more importantly have feelings.
