Become Selfless ~ Little Things #7

Continuing with my Little Things series.

Become Selfless

Take “I” and “Me” out of your vocabulary, and watch how life will reward you. Watch how your anxieties wither away while your determination hits overdrive. 

Selflessness is an important key to marriage, friendships, and relationships. It is also an essential key to happiness and fulfillment. But unfortunately, often overlooked.

Many will try to define success in terms of winning out over others, having power over others, or the ability to dominate others. The lust for power is common and widespread in humans, the power to order others around, the power to make decisions that will impact others, and the power to own when others cannot. But this type of happiness and influence is short-lived. It will always fade. 

If your character is defined by what you do for yourself, it’s worthless. Let the life you breathe into others define your character, and watch your life soar. ~Matt Priddle

  1. Some people look at the world as things or people or animals to be used to serve themselves, and they become very unhappy in the end, because that is all they see, is things..

    Giving of yourself as you do, is life and your are more successful Carol than the people who have more things than you do.

    Things, money are just that, tools but should never to be worshipped for life and things just occur in a very brief moment of time.

    When we are burnt by fire and lives ups and downs, who we are stands if we build our life on the most important values of life.

  2. I was grumpy this morning. My blood pressure is still running high and my right-hand side of my body is now all numb. And then my brother said, the least you could do is share a half of smile with me.

    So we had smiles all around. When you remember that you have the power to help someone smile and it’s not about you, it’s about both of you – your selfless acts become natural and they are returned over and over.
