Motivation Mondays: Honoring SERVICE

25/05/2015

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.” Mahatma Gandhi

Motivation Mondays: Honoring SERVICE

Motivation Mondays: Honoring SERVICE

Every man, every woman who has to take up the service of government, must ask themselves two questions: ‘Do I love my people in order to serve them better? Am I humble and do I listen to everybody, to diverse opinions in order to choose the best path?’ If you don’t ask those questions, your governance will not be good. Pope Francis

What does SERVICE mean to you? A great teacher once said that “To lead, you must first learn to serve.” Today, as we honor our service men and women who paid the ultimate price in defending our rights and freedoms, let us not forget that true service is selfless service; it is service that demands we set aside our personal wants/needs/desires and just serve our fellow-man. Those men and women who served in a wide range of duties and capacities gave their all including their lives so the rest of us can live and enjoy the fruits of their labor.

When I think of this special day, my gratitude goes out to all who have served others globally and in every line of work. I think of our teachers, our caregivers, our good leaders, our military personnel, our firemen/policemen, our doctors/nurses/first responders, our servers/helpers in every imaginable field, and I say THANK YOU! Some have served without recognition or glory, while others have served with bravery and public acknowledgement. The truth is that they have all served mightily because they put service above selfishness.

“To give real service you must add something which cannot be bought or measured with money, and that is sincerity and integrity.” Douglas Adams

Memorial Day isn’t just about honoring veterans, its honoring those who lost their lives. Veterans had the fortune of coming home. For us, that’s a reminder of when we come home we still have a responsibility to serve. It’s a continuation of service that honors our country and those who fell defending it. Pete Hegseth

Each Memorial Day, I pause and reflect on what type of character trait it takes to be so fully committed to lifting others up. What type of individual gives of him/herself without thought of the dangers or loss involved or the SEO advantages to be gained? What comes back to my heart again and again is that we are all capable of making that CHOICE to serve. We don’t have to all join the forces or work in government, we can serve in our communities and on our jobs. We can serve our families, friends, and neighbors, We can be of service to the needy, the homeless, the hungry and the occasional stranger whose gaze meets ours on the bus, train or street.

Why Serve? We can make a concerted effort to make service to humanity part of our 5-10 year personal plan/goal, and do it in a way that is feasible for us. What good is a career plan that has no giving-back section to it? What good is making millions/billions if we don’t stop to look at how we can help the less fortunate around us? Service is our raison d’être and we might as well maximize our exposure to it while we still have breath on this earth.

“I slept and dreamt that life was joy. I awoke and saw that life was service. I acted and behold, service was joy.” Rabindranath Tagore

Motivation Mondays: Honoring SERVICE

Without community service, we would not have a strong quality of life. It’s important to the person who serves as well as the recipient. It’s the way in which we ourselves grow and develop. Dorothy Height

If we would start each day by asking ourselves how we can be of service to each other, we would probably have less strife in the world. We live in an abundant universe with enough to go around and yet many die from hunger, lack of medical attention and even from ignorance. While ignorance might not kill the body, it is a far more insidious murderer than we know. Ignorance of the universal principle of treating others with dignity and respect; Ignorance of the rights of others to their religious, cultural, social beliefs; Ignorance of the laws of attraction and the abundance of resources on Planet Earth; Ignorance of our impact on the environment, Ignorance of our commonalities, Ignorance that leads to the disenfranchisement of people, ethnic groups, communities and excluded/abused folks …

All forms of ignorance and many others, not mentioned above, fuel the poison that keeps us from serving each other. If we remember that service to others is a form of service to our progeny and ourselves, we will begin to see the beauty and power of service in its richest form. We need to become more conscious and conscientious of the power of service and add it to our daily routine. What and How do you serve?

“For anything worth having one must pay the price; and the price is always work, patience, love, self-sacrifice – no paper currency, no promises to pay, but the gold of real service.” John Burroughs

Motivation Mondays: Honoring SERVICE

For those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, we are grateful that such men and women were among us. For those who continue to serve, we honor their commitment. For those who return to civilian life, we honor their service. Steve Buyer

As Muhammad Ali once said, “Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on earth.” The internet has made our global village smaller and accessible. We can interact with people thousands of miles away and that access means that we need to let go of our prejudices and fault-finding. We need to recognize the humanity that exists inside each and every one of us and use that as a starting point of engagement. Until we open our eyes and begin to honor the living, we will never fully appreciate the sacrifices of the dead. Until we lift the veil of ignorance that shrouds our minds, and see each other as we truly our: brothers and sisters, we will remain a world in conflict with itself. Until we learn to serve without discriminatory practices, the dead will continue to turn in their graves wondering why we have not learned the lessons that should have become clear with their death. So who and what do YOU serve? What are your thoughts? Do share! Thank you.

    Living in a military town has given me a much greater appreciation of not only the sacrifice that soldiers give, but that their families give as well. I have several friends that gave birth while their husbands were overseas and have had to be both father and mother to their children while dad or mom is posted away. It’s a huge part of life here and I’m so grateful for all that they do to protect us!

    I didn’t understood service until the recent incident in our country involving the death of 44 policemen in a battlefield ambush. Their death showed us Filipinos what service means for both police and army. They showed us how committed they are in making sure we, citizens of this country, is safe from all forms of harm. It’s selfless and brave.

    Through that understanding, I was inspired to push through the community works I’ve been wanting to join or initiate. Service, for me, is a very valuable thing to share or give. It takes a lot of effort, time and patience. But it is after the service that is satisfying. It always feels good to give back to the world.

We’ve seen families torn apart, sacrificing mom or dad for the good of our country. That is a HUGE sacrifice to make. And by the same token, we’re reminded of all those who have gone before, and we’re so grateful to them for it.

    It’ll never be possible without an education from a teacher. They’re the ones who have molded their students into successful ones and they would always look back to that teacher who have helped them shape their future.

    I love this quote: “To lead, you must first learn to serve.” It sums up the approach for the military and I am so grateful for all those who have chosen to head the call.

    In addition to my earlier comment, I would like to stress the importance of all kinds of services people render for the benefit of others. Nothing is less than the other

    The cost of freedom is high. I feel that all that who serve our country do so with that cost hanging over their heads. They deserve to be recognized for their sacrifice and hard work!

    I think it is really time to give honors to those who render service for us. This is to give appreciation of what they did.

    I salute these people. I am guilty about looking out for myself and not think of others. Selfish, I know. It is amazing to see people who are out there rsiking their lives for others.

    Being a public teacher and my fiance as a gov’t policeman, service has been always a part of our lives. Like my fiance having no day-offs from work (LITERALLY) just to serve the nation. Those little act of service is really a BIG impact to the community.

    I am reminded of a quote in “The Catcher in the Rye” – ‘The mark of the immature man is that he wants to die nobly for a cause, while the mark of the mature man is that he wants to live humbly for one.’
