The Seven Pillars of Service

WHAT IT MEANS TO DEDICATE YOUR LIFE TO SERVICE.

We recognize those who have dedicated their lives to putting others first through our pieces. Each one acts as a reminder and a thank you to those who serve, while helping to explain the pillars of service.

The Definition of Service

Placing something above your own self-interest. The act of helping or doing work for someone. The seven pillars that make up the word service provide us with a guiding framework for how we can live our lives. By finding ways to weave these words into our everyday experiences, we get closer to living a life of service first. 

PILLAR ONE

Sacrifice

Sacrifice in its very nature is to give something up in the name of the greater good. Every act of service, big or small, requires a level of sacrifice. It’s important to recognize all selfless acts, as this is what fuels a service first life. People who do this without even noticing are who we classify as heroes of our modern world.

PILLAR TWO

Empower

There are people who have selflessly dedicated their lives to a cause and inspire others to follow. Leading by example and through courageous, bold and exceptional acts, these individuals help others find their purpose and place. They pick us up when we are at that lowest point. They urge us to plow forward. They motivate us to be our best selves, and above all, they remind us that life’s a journey.

PILLAR THREE

Respect

Respect is earned for deeds done. For putting in the time. Committing to something bigger than us. It is granted to those who demonstrate loyalty and honor because it’s just who they are, not because it’s forced. Those who value what it means to be part of a team and understand that leadership does not always mean standing in front earn the deepest level of respect.

PILLAR FOUR

Value

What is it that you value? What is it that makes your life truly worth living? Our values are what define us—our beliefs, our actions, our goals. Everyone’s value set looks a little different. But for those who serve, rallying around our values is our common bond. We believe that working together to create a better tomorrow is what the world needs. Our aligned values allow this to happen.

PILLAR FIVE

Inspiration

Inspiration comes in many forms. But when one can inspire someone else to act, that’s what truly matters. While we feel it may be our calling, our duty and our cause to serve, it’s when we inspire others to do the same that we know our legacy will live on. To bring others along the journey is what makes acts of service that much more worthwhile.

PILLAR SIX

Contribute

To contribute something to society is the greatest gift we can give. Whether it’s the moment of bravery when we give more than we thought was possible, or the simple act of a small, everyday deed. We see a need and step forward to fill it, determined to make a difference. When you decide your life is about contribution, you’re the reason we are able to action change.

PILLAR SEVEN

Empathy

Being able to connect, relate and acknowledge those around you—regardless of age, sex, race, religion, location, profession, orientation—is what we as people are craving. To be empathetic allows us to put the greater good first, removing ourselves from the equation entirely. It allows us to appreciate one another for exactly who we are and embrace our differences.
