But over time, I began to find more value in focusing on giving rather than just on receiving. And when we give we tend to receive. In dividends.
I'm not saying that we should never be selfish. As human beings, we have desires and dreams, and we should pursue them. But we should also give to others.
We should look to strike the balance between giving to others and giving to ourselves. With, in my opinion, the scale tipping toward helping others. This doesn't come naturally to everyone. However it is something I believe is worth aspiring to.
