    Fewer Selfish Impulses

    Greed is like a forest fire. It is never happy and can’t find enough forest to devour. Our voracious desire for wanting more land, houses, or money can control every thought the entire day. We continually feed our selfish impulses which are seeking satisfaction. Following greed, being the top person causes us to be selfish. Come to think of it, we don’t really appreciate egocentric people very much. They so often set themselves apart as a Prima Donnas.

    All the above does not apply to successful people. We remember all those in our life who have helped and encouraged us along the way. In return, we assist others as God presents the opportunities.

    We could live by the Golden Rule as presented in the Bible. Do unto others as we want them to do unto us. We won’t hurt or block others progress on their way to success. We will find time to assist them over hurdles we have already crossed.

    One last way to have fewer selfish impulses is to give. As the scriptures says we will give to others and then it will be multiplied back to us pressed down and running over. One must have faith that God will keep this promise to give us courage to help others first. Selfish impulses are less strong when we are more concerned about others than about ourselves.
