Me myself and I.
I want myself to remember how I loved her, understood her, and helped her accomplish her dreams. I want her to remember specific times that we shared together times we laughed, times we cried, times we spent discussing things that were important to both of us, and times we just held one another and watched the sunset.
I want my colleagues to remember my servant-leadership, my integrity, my humility, and my commitment to having fun. I want them to remember how much they learned and grew as a result of knowing me. Most of all, I want them to remember how I stood for the greatness in them and empowered them to accomplish far more than they ever
If I don’t feed myself spiritually, I don’t have the spiritual resources necessary to edify others. This is one reason I read the Bible and pray daily.
If I don’t look after my own health and become sick, I am not much use to my family or my employees. This is why I run and try to eat nutritionally sound food.
If I don’t make time for reading great books, I don’t have the intellectual resources I need to enrich others.
If I don’t make the effort to work through my own emotional wounds, I end up reacting to others instead of being in a position to minister to them. This is why I think counselling and therapy is a valuable endeavour for most people.
If I don’t get sufficient rest, I get grumpy. No one wants to be around me. This is why I try to sleep a solid seven hours every night.
