What can one person achieve in the service to others?
Sober Strides was born a year ago out of my need to find peace with my past and vision towards my future. It was a seed; I planted it in the hope that as it grew organically, so would I. The seed, fertilised by the positive words and actions that I vowed to display, has afforded me the fruit of my labour. Sober Strides has exceeded my original intent, and humbly I believe branches further than I am aware.
The service to others only became available through my willingness to serve myself, If you want to make change, you must first be prepared to lead. You must display the highest form of leadership at the lowest level, internally. You need to be selfish for your service to be selfless. I do not mean selfish in the forms of materialistic or egotistic pursuits, but those of integrated growth, physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. The more you work on yourself, the ability to facilitate others becomes apparent.
So, what can one person achieve in the service to others? As much as they are willing to put into themselves.
