ISB » News Archives » A Letter of Thanks to the ISB
Dear InService Brotherhood,
I am Priscilla Asiimire from Uganda.
I write to thank you very
much for all you did for us. I personally appreciate the effort you
selflessly put in to prepare, serve, facilitate and change me in ISB4!
I have attended both the ISB
3 Bootcamp as well. It was a major breakthrough in my life, but ISB 4
took me to another level of realization and resolution about why I am
not yet where I want to be. It taught me who I must be and what I must
do to get there.
I learned a lot of lessons from the processes and discussions we had, and I would like to share them with you:
- I understood that
meaningful service must be without expectation. Although I am still not
yet successful in this area, I am taking steps to improve day by day.
- I learned to take
seriously the fact that to be successful and to be a light to others in
leadership, discipline, humility, self control must be part of
everything I do. I decided to focus on my weaknesses and turn them into
strengths so I can develop a better attitude in life. The daily
practice of SOS will help get me there.
- In the elimination
process, I realized why some IRs tend to switch off switching off. I
learned that to be effective, I have to focus on just a few IRs at a
time: understand their dreams, expectations, challenges and needs,
counsel them, support them and love them unconditionally, regardless of
the UVs. I realised that the UVs will come eventually if we help each
other work hard and grow.
- The process of carrying
the egg taught me that I have to sacrifice for my downlines, think
about how to serve and protect them all the time to ensure that they
don't switch off prematurely and miss out on their dreams and
aspirations. It's my duty, calling and devotion.
- In the trust fall
process, the consistent and enduring support and counselling that Chief
Pathman and the Core InService gave to our brothers that taught me the
way to tolerantly and carefully approach the people that I deal with.
This will drastically reduce the drop-out rate of my team.
- I realized that each
person in the team has a role to play, just as there were different
roles in the Bootcamp: the Marshals, the Setup team , the net carriers,
the Cheering team, the InService, the Instructors. The different
supportive roles we play in our teams (and in the V) serve as a strong
net that will carry all the team members all and will translate into
more signups and productivity.
- For the net to be
strong enough to carry all of us in my team, I need to seriously work on
trusting myself, trusting and empowering my team, and trusting my
uplines. This lesson truly made a mark in my heart.
- The whole Bootcamp
increased my endurance. I can now working longer hours, which is great
because I have a lot that I want to accomplish.
I wish to grow and be
successful as a servant leader and I have made up my mind to live on the
edge. I know now that everything I do or don't do has consequences and I
want only good consequences.
