Today's inspirational thoughts - Challenge to be humble

Some people go through their lives trying to be successful, trying to be famous, trying to be great. 

When they get there, they spend the rest of their lives trying to hide from people, the people who made them rich and famous in the first place.

Most leaders, when they get too powerful, become arrogant and forget why they were put in a position and what was their duty.

When people elect you, your job is to serve them, that is all. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Leaders fill their pockets, the pockets of family and friends and forget the people.

When that happens, you need to change your leader.

Whenever Mahatma Gandhi met with other Indian politicians, he would always sit on the floor and observe the others sitting over him.
A leader needs to continually break his or her own ego or else someone will break it for him or her.

How do you do this? 
  1. Always remember that there are still many things that you haven't done
  2. There are things that you have failed at
  3. There are things that you will never be good at and even at the job you do there may be persons elsewhere who are better at it than you
Most of all remember you were elected by the people; the voice of the people is the voice of God. God can make you and break you.

Serve your people well, that is all. Be genuine to yourself and to others, most of all remember who put you there and why you were put there.

Put God first; remember God always and all will be well.
