Whoever wants to become great must be a servant: Ernest Shackleton

In 1914, Sir Ernest Shackleton set sail for the Antarctic. He and his crew of twenty-seven men planned to be the first to trek across the frozen continent. One day’s sail from Antarctica, the dream ended. Their ship Endurance became trapped in sea ice and was slowly crushed, forcing the men to abandon it.
They camped on the ice for five months before Shackleton took a lifeboat across 800 miles of ocean—one of history’s most daunting boat journeys. On reaching an inhabited island, Shackleton organized a rescue mission and returned to save the entire crew.
Ernest Shackleton failed in one historic mission, but the legend of his serving leadership lives on. It’s the high calling of our daily work.
“. . . whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Book of Matthew
