To consider oneself to be a server means to be humble.

Expression:

Each one is endowed with certain specialities and gifts. The one who is able to use these specialties for the benefit of others as
a server, is able to make a contribution to better the lives of those around. But the one who only thinks of his specialities and
a chance for expressing the specialities is not able to remain humble.

Experience:

All the specialties that I have are there for a purpose. The more I use it to benefit others, the more I am able to use them with
humility. I am also able to gather the good wishes of those around me and further increase my specialities. I have no expectations
from others but am able to give unconditionally, recognizing their need.

Where there is faith there is victory

When someone has faith there are no doubts or questions about the self, others or situations. Faith also enables a person to see and understand simple things in life with a new understanding. It shows direction and courage to go on.

When I have faith, I experience myself to be lucky and thus receive cooperation from many others. I would also be able to experience success at every step. There is then no worry for me and am troubled less by aspects that keep changing around me. My thoughts then would always be positive and I experience victory.

To consider problems to be a game is to move forward with lightness.

experience lightness knowing that this is the part I have to play. It would be easy to understand the significance of the part that I
am playing and remain happy.

Words filled with wishes bring change in others.

When I speak with love and good wishes, I find that I am light, knowing that I have no selfishness in whatever I have said. The others too are able to immediately correct themselves. This also enables me to gain good wishes for having taken them a step
forward.

Speciality lies in experiencing one's fortune.

To be free from wants is to be free from waste.

When I am free from wants or desires, I am able to always remain content. I can then appreciate and enjoy everything that comes my way, and do not expect anything both from situations and people. So the mind is free from waste thoughts and questions.

The one who checks himself constantly is the one who experiences progress.

When something goes wrong, if I learn to check myself and bring about a change immediately, I will be able to experience constant
progress. No situation will make me have negative feelings or make me stop, but I will be able to enjoy everything that comes my way.
