It's neer worth it to be proud, says Spigseth

RESPONSE Network director Håkon Spigseth says he belives his main purpose in life lies in doing well to other people.

And Spigseth says that it is never worth it to be proud because one’s purpose of life and work is above that.

Addressing workers of his organisation in Livingstone to preview the organisations 2018 challenges and successes, Spigseth said he was lucky to come to work in Zambia, an environment where people are God.

“I co-started RN because I believed that my main purpose in life lies in doing well to other people, and to put that first.  The other things in life I feel is rather of smaller importance… one result of
that thinking is that as long as we focus on the main purpose of life, other things become of much smaller importance. It is never worth it to be angry with someone, because love is our mission. It’s never worth it to look down at someone else, because love is our mission,” Spigseth said.

He added that RN workers needed to remember that whenever sorrow and challenges come, they need to be kind to it, because God had placed a pearl in sorrows hand.

“I was lucky to come to work in an environment where people are God believers, and many therefore also have the same outlook on life, that: ‘To do to others what you want others to do to you’ is so
important in life.  So we became the Response Network family,” Spigseth added.

He, however, indicated that life was difficult, and challenges and disagreements will come.

“We need to remember the above purpose of our being here. It’s never worth it to be proud, because our purpose of life and work is above that. It is never worth it to talk very strictly to anyone, because our purpose of life and work is above that,” he said.

“It’s never worth it to be bossy because our purpose of life and work is above that. If you are bossy you are failing on our love goals,” Spigseth said.

And Spigseth informed the workers that whatever difficulties are there, whatever they thought their
colleagues were doing wrong, all they needed to do is: “say it with love.”

“We need is to ‘say it with love’ and then she/he will accept to be talked to and corrected. If we have talked something negative about someone, all we need is to swallow our pride and go and say ‘sorry my brother/sorry my sister.” Spigseth advised.

RN receives assistance and collaboration from the Norwegian Olympic and Paralympics Committee and Confederation of Sport (NIF), Support Centre for Survivors of Incest and Sexual Abuse (SMISO), the Norwegian Agency for Exchange Cooperation (NOREC) formerly Fredskorpset (FK), the Norwegian Church Aid (NCA) and Academic Work of Sweden among other organisations and individuals.
