Insight from the DALAI LAMA, “Wise people serve others sincerely, putting the needs of others above their own.”
Take that for a spin in the real world. Just think of any radical change you have ever made in your life: new job, marriage or moving to another country.
Okay, new job, thrown into this situation, finding the limits and syncing with these people places and things. I am learning something brand new and practicing collaboration and cooperation with all of it.
Perhaps, this is humbling because it is so obviously daunting and over my head.
“Wise people serve others….”. I try to work with people not against them. I try to face my fears.
I know enough to start, risk and fail and succeed and to understand the difference.
To a large extent, wisdom calls on my best experience and outcomes, and this can be very enlightening…
Perhaps, I get paid well, and I learn from the experience. I have small enough failures and small enough success to live!
