We have uncovered a simple tool that allows us to focus on the needs of others without feeling we are giving all our energy away. It allows us to stay present in conversations without feeling overwhelmed, support others through difficult times without being caught in negative spaces and inspire ourselves to do what is right. This tool is four simple words that will simplify your life, clear your mind and amplify your Service Leadership: It’s Not About Me.
Shared with me by my grandmother Elsie McBride when I was just a child, these are the most powerful, freeing and true words I have ever heard. Taking “me” out of just about every equation has had an amazing impact on my ability to serve my family, community and team at work. It has also been the best mental health advice I have ever received.
Here’s why: When we focus on the needs of others it is much easier to ignore that inner voice telling us we are not good enough. This external focus doesn’t let us get caught up with the day-to-day pushback we get from so many corners of our world. The energy, mental and emotional freedom that comes from It’s Not About Me allows me to make it all about them, without losing myself in the process.
