Who sees you as their mentor, as their inspiration, as memorable in their life? This may be difficult at first since people seldom see themselves as making a significant impact on others.
Ask yourself how many people in your life want to help you? How many people have you dedicated your time and energy to help this year? If the answer to both questions is “a handful,” you may lead a comfortable life, but you will not develop significance in your relationships.
To create significance, you must develop the attitude of the “servant’s heart”. You must ask yourself how you can help other people. This requires you to shift your focus. You develop a servant’s heart by dedicating yourself to the success of those who help you achieve your success.
People walk around with the letters MMFA – Make Me Feel Appreciated – as a figurative imprint on their foreheads. You, as a leader with a servant’s heart, must ask how you can help these people become more effective and feel more important. You must make your colleagues, customers and stakeholders understand that you have their best interests at heart and that your commitment is unconditional
All of us aspire to reach our dreams and goals. The leader with a “servant’s heart” inspires others to succeed at a personal level. When people realize that they can reach their personal goals through helping the organization reach its goals, they make impressive results possible.
