Being Selfish Can Be Selfless
Being selfish can not only help you but help the world. To elaborate, it’s not just about being selfish, it’s about putting yourself first. Putting your goals, dreams, and aspirations before that of others. The more you level yourself up the more you are able to contribute to the world. By focusing on yourself you are able to level up your skills and mind.
If you put others before yourself then it’s time to be selfish. By being selfish you are able to focus on the things that can make you better. If you’re spending all your energy on other people than you won’t have much for yourself. Before you spend time helping others, do what helps you first. At the start of your day, do the most important things for you before helping others. This will help you remain consistent in self-improvement.
I can use myself as a personal example of what I’m talking about. Losing weight has been a tremendous change for me. It has enabled me to feel and be much healthier and also empower other people. By working on myself and not spending my energy on others first, I’ve actually been able to influence more people with my work. That influence has allowed me to have bigger opportunities and again increases my influence to help more people all around the world!
Here’s a short video of me talking about this very topic!
If you want to learn more about improving yourself, I highly recommend reading Mastery By: Robert Greene. It is by far my favorite personal development book!
