My friend Jeremy… Wow, what do you say about someone like Jeremy? I can tell you one thing: in my search for pictures of him I couldn’t find ONE that didn’t have someone else in it. But that’s Jeremy… He’s probably one of the most selfless people I’ve ever met. He’s always ready to help anyone who needs it, no matter the cost to himself.
But that’s not the lesson I’ve learned from Jeremy. Through Jeremy’s natural and amazing gift of connecting with others he’s taught me the important lesson to always:
- Focus on others
Jeremy’s people skills are truely amazing. One time I watched him walk into a room, and saw him say hello, and shake every person’s hand in the room, before he made it to his destination. Jeremy will always have time to talk to you, and when he does, his genuineness truly disarms any bariers people put up.
I only aspire to have the personal skills Jeremy displays everyday. His focus truly is on others, and because of that I am lucky to call him my friend, and my brother.
What about you? Do you find yourself focusing on others, or thinking more about yourself? Do you know Jeremy? What do you think about him?
