All men have become what they are, because of their DOMINATING 
THOUGHTS AND DESIRES. Every deeply seated desire has the effect 
of causing one to seek outward expression through which that 
desire may be transmuted into reality. I know that self-suggestion 
is a powerful factor in building character, in fact, the sole 
principle through which character is built.

Mr. Hill wrote these words spoken to him by Lincoln is a dream, 
“The world will soon need your services,” This statement was an 
“aha” moment for me. It was as if my eyes and ears were opened 
to an inner voice and loud shout from a distance.

As Hill penned, “Understanding of the sixth sense comes only by 
meditation through mind development from within. The sixth sense 
probably is the medium of contact between the finite mind of man 
and Infinite Intelligence, and for this reason, it is a mixture 
of both the mental and the spiritual. It is believed to be the 
point at which the mind of man contacts the Universal Mind.”

Let me tell you a little more of my story. Most of you know that 
I was in the ministry of much of my life. I started preaching and 
teaching when I was 16. When I was 20 when I was offered my first 
church as a full-time minister. This started my career an active 
ministry servant.

After 10years I was offer a position doing financial service for 
ministers which I did for 12 years.  The next 23years I was in 
estate planning and financial service. It was during this time I 
started and re-started in Network Marketing hoping to find a way 
to better serve my clients and customers.

I see now more than ever God has call me to a servant’s role. This 
was really brought home over last weeks by some of those with whom I 
have met, connected and built rapport. One of the question asked is, 
“What is this “Mentor with a Servant’s Heart” which is how I close 
all my messages.

After being ask this question a few times I had to stop and think 
about what it means to have a servant’s heart. I reasoned that my 
best answer in the writings of the apostle Paul: Love never gives 
up. Love cares more for others than for self. Love doesn’t want 
what it doesn’t have. Love doesn’t strut, Doesn’t have a swelled 
head, Doesn’t force itself on others, Isn’t always “me first,” 
Doesn’t fly off the handle, Doesn’t keep score of the sins of 
others, Doesn’t revel when others grovel, Takes pleasure in the 
flowering of truth, Puts up with anything, Trusts God always, 
Always looks for the best, Never looks back, But keeps going to 
the end. (I Corinthians 13)

I sent the following response to a contact this past week. “Mentor 
with a Servant’s Heart” is my WHY. I have made it my aim to help 
anyone who need help in their personal and business development, 
without any other agenda but to serve. I have been blessed with 
skills and talents that I want to share.”

When there are some many who want more out of life, as mentor my 
responsibility is be an example of the loving serving spirit as 
described above.

Thanks to Michael, Linda, Bob, and all of you for being loving 
servant you are.
