Using what you have learned in many cases the hard way shows you how to be of service to others. It creates a burning desire and also steers you in the right path to avoid areas not pertaining to your main purpose and meaning in life.
Committing to bettering yourself and realizing you are not perfect. Having an attitude of openness to see, learn and experience new ways to become a better servant. Having compassion toward others in building positive and supportive relationships in building toward the goal of purpose and meaningful life.
