Everyone wants to be great. Few commit to the process.
“The greatest among you will be your servant.” – Jesus (Matthew 23:11)
You see, the process has a downward trajectory. There’s humiliation involved. Self-sacrifice is included. And, instead of obsessing about ourselves, we grow to obsessively learn about the people we are here to serve.
A life poured out for the benefit of others ends up being a life others speak of as “great.”
It’s upside-down influence, and it’s the way to greatness.
