• Can Selfishness Increase Your Odds for Success?

April 04, 2019

Giving Yourself To The World Is the greatest Gift You Can Offer.

Selfishness gets a bad rap sometimes.

Understandably so.

It’s never a good idea to keep everything to yourself, all the time.

As they say, “To Give is to Live.”

But there’s one type of selfishness I believe is ok…

In fact, being this kind of selfish actually helps more people in the long run.

And that is to be selfish with your time and attention.

Why?

Because it’s only when you put time and attention into yourself that you’re
able to grow.

And it’s only when you grow that you can help more people.

There’s not much you can do to help others when you don’t have much to give.

This is why I encourage you to focus on improving yourself every day.

Eventually, after you have experienced enough growth, your influence in the world will be far reaching.

Like a giant cloud, you will be the relief so many crave for on a blisteringly hot summer day. All your focus on yourself will pay off and you’ll be able to give more than you thought possible.

You’ll be able to make a real and lasting impact.

Paradoxically, to focus on yourself is not very selfish at all.

I encourage you to put effort into yourself,
and the most wonderful things the world has to offer will come your way
because you are offering the world yourself and that alone
Is the greatest gift you can offer.

Talk Soon.

Strength and Honor,

Endurance alone is power ultimate, so endure.

Get Sh*T Done.

To live is to fight, for this world is but a hurricane of challenges all aimed at you. If it ever becomes too much, if you get down on your life, you will look for encouragement externally. But you won’t find it.

For unless you’re in a tribe of most die hard killers, most people make the appearance that they want the best for you, that they...
