Today we’re going to move a little away from our traditional pest control blog post to something that has been on my mind lately, which is leadership and maturing as a person. As infants grow to adolescence, they tend to think that the world revolves only around them. It’s perfectly normal because in a child’s limited perception, that’s all they can see. Even as adults, until someone else is dependent on you, it is hard to break out of the, “it’s only about me” mentality.
Don’t worry, this isn’t a write up on the importance of parenting. It’s an introduction into a shift we all need to make if we want to grow. To move from a mindset of self only to serving something bigger than ourselves.
To grow we need to shift our belief system and our habits to the right of the column, the Leadership/Service/Value side. As a leader with a bigger vision, your role is to Serve, Lead and Add Value. When you are sure of your role for yourself within your organization then that leads to greater conviction. Knowing that you are serving a greater purpose than just self leads to more satisfaction in your life. In other words, if you want to have more meaning and satisfaction, you need to serve something greater than yourself. Look at the above column and decide where you spend your time.
