    A common expression in the field of success and entrepreneurship is that you will succeed to the extent that you help others succeed.
    Zig Ziglar is quoted as saying "You can have everything in life you want if you will just help other people get what they want."
    The Bible says that Jesus came to serve, not to be served.
    "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many."  Mark 10:45 (NLT)
    Jesus gives us a command in John 13:34-35. "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another." (NIV)

    If I were to create a new motivational quote, it might go something like this: "Love is everything and everyone wants it. Love enough people and you will get a maximum dose of love for yourself."  
    That won't fit on a t-shirt but it is the truth.

    If you want to succeed and get the most out of every single area of your life, you need to love people.

    Easy right? Not!
    Loving people out of your own limited love bank will only lead to burnout and frustration.

    Loving people out of the endless reserve of God's love will lead to a transformed life.

    Strategies to stay focused on God's love:

    1. Morning time. Begin each day in the Word.
    The Bible is the Living Word of God and will transform your heart. 

    2. Continue your morning time into the rest of your day.
    3.  Create strategies or RITUALS throughout your day that REFOCUS you on loving God and loving others.

    4. Don't be afraid to get a little mystical.

    One thing that I love to do is focus on my breathing.
    Here is my thought pattern on this one. God is everywhere, including in the air that I breathe. God is love, so when I breathe in air I am breathing in His Love.
    That love particle connects with every cell in my body and is the foundation of my DNA, the building block of my body.  
    When I focus on this I realize that as I go about my day, God's love is filling me and pouring out of me into all of my actions and my relationships.    
    I know this a little different, but it works!  
    You cannot focus on God's love pouring out of you and anything else at the same time. God's love overshadows and eliminates all other thoughts. 

    You probably think I'm crazy but when I'm focusing on God's love, what you think about me doesn't effect me. 
    Didn't I write somewhere that you have to be a little more crazy?

    Be the mystic.

    Coach Yurij

    ps. I use that meditation to harness God's love to continually heal me from cancer.

    Thanks for your share and encouragements Yurij. I'm not afraid to be the mystic one single bit and to put the love in it.

    This is a refreshing take on how to continually bring God back to the centre of our day. Thanks Yurij!

    Great stuff as usual Yurij. I have also been focusing in my adjusting time on the breathing technique you and David Cameron were describing on the last call. It's amazing how it focuses me on the moment with that patient and their needs.

    That's an amazing visual of breath and God's love through every cell and tissue. Thanks Yurij.

    Thanks Yurij for the gift of yet another gem in my morning time...that focused breathing. And I'll take it throughout my day. It's no wonder I completely break down when I hear the verse "It's YOUR breath, in my lungs" when I listen to "Great Are You Lord". It's almost overwhelming....His Love!!

    Thanks Yurij. this is a refreshing perspective and I would say not mainstream in the business world that I am exposed to most of the time. There are a lot of Leadership experts out there that I respect and learn from and this is not usually an area that they touch. I love Zig Zigglar and have been trying to lead with a serving others mind set for a long time. Because of that, sometimes, I am perceived as weird or weak by those who believe that in order to win in business you have to focus on what is in it for yourself. Loving others is not easy and some customers are difficult to love but it works and it is worth the effort.

    Thanks Yurij, the breathing in and out is awsome as well as being grateful and giving thanks for still taking breaths on this earth.

    Just got off of a call with my team and this is so relevant to our conversation. "Loving people out of the endless reserve of God's love will lead to a transformed life". After 33 years in retail this is the way not only to transform our personal lives but our working lives and every aspect of our daily life. We talked about re-calibrating in moments we're being challenged, and you're right, creating strategies that refocus us on loving others through God's love is the way. Thanks Yurij

    Breath in, breath out. Breath in, breath out. Breath in God's love, breath out God's love. Repeat. I can do that. Awesome Coach. Thank you.

    Mystical? Ooooohhhh I thought I read physical! You are right on with this one Yurij. Sometimes I find it tough to leave my heart wide open for fear of getting stung. But Jesus didn't worry so neither will I. Thank you :-)

    Thanks Yurij! I often feel my own reserves of love running dry and I am thankful for God's never ending supply. Thank-you for the practical tips for switching my tank from me to God. Love you!!

    Thanks for the post Yurij! I often times get caught up trying to serve others with my own strength and always end up burnt out and frustrated. Not easy for sure, but harder when I am not focused on God's love. Much easier to serve through God's love when I am focused on it. Thanks for the tips on how to stay focused on His love!
