Service to Others versus Control of Others

I was looking at a lot of situations where people are more interested in holding power over others instead of looking at what is good for people. It amazes me how many people get the lime light who are really focused on what is in it for them. People vote for them and put them in power positions.

I was thinking how much better things would be if we would use the litmus test of making decisions based on people who focus on making things better for others. There is no need to change rules unless you can change them to something that is beneficial for society or whomever the leaders serve.

There is plenty of prosperity for everyone. There are many opportunities for everyone. We are not stuck in limitations, unless we wish to be stuck in limitations. Most people find ways to do what they really want to do. We no longer need the manipulation or force techniques to make others do things. If we start looking for ways to help each other thrive, we can really make a difference. We need to be able to look out for each other. We often jump to conclusions about others but we never bother to take the time to find out what is happening and then find a way to help out or support each other.

So, my challenge to you is to start looking at what you can do to help improve the quality of life for someone or something outside of you. Remember to ask the person or be open to them asking you for help. I try to do this every day.

I will get off of my soap box now!
