How would your world look if everything you did was of service to another person? Maybe your family would feel the love. Maybe your workplace would be more uplifting. Maybe your friends would be inspired. The Fred Factor was a good reminder that everything that we do has an impact on others. We can choose whether that impact can be positive or negative, valuable or forgettable. Whatever you do will leave a mark. What kind of mark do you want to leave behind?
The Fred Factor is a quick read with some profound ideas. Not unlike St. Paul, Sanborn reminds the reader that at the end of everything, the only thing that matters is love. When you put another person and their needs ahead of your own selfish concerns, you broaden your own capacity for love and add lasting value to the other person.
What can you do just for today to better serve those in your life?
