Differentiation – Maybe instead of telling others that we are different, we ought to show them the difference by not focusing so much on our success as on enabling their success. In the end, we are successful because we contribute to the success of others.
When we make pitches based on how great we are, we are missing an important truth – it’s not about us, it’s about them. Brag or serve – I know which I would choose if I were hiring someone and I know which I want to live out. There’s no fulfillment in boasting, only in valuable service.
