Life is not about you alone | © Fola Daniel Adelesi

There is more to life than what you alone can get out of it and you need to start watching out for all those selfish tendencies that you have. They only make you see yourself in everything. You only think about what you can get out of everything. If there is nothing in the plan for you then it should never hold. Why would you even live like that?

If life revolves around you alone then it will never make any sense. Check out all the people who have tried to make life revolve around them. They end up losing much more than they are asking for or trying to get for themselves and keep out of the reach of other people.

You don’t get more by keeping more and more to yourself. If you really want to get more out of life you have to give more into life. While some keep losing what they have because they are trying very hard to get more, those who are letting go what they have keep getting more of what they want in life.

Have you tried to make everything focus on you alone in the work place? Are you trying to make everything be about you at home? In the organisations that you belong to apart from your office, what are you doing there that makes it look like life is simply about you alone?

You have to come to a great understanding of life and to see that when you try to make everything revolve around you, life does not move as fast as you expect it to. When you make it less of you and more of others, life seems to go very fast. At the end of the journey you will also see that you have not only made progress but you have gotten much more than you bargained for in life.

If all you think about is yourself, others around you will soon notice it. When they notice it and can no longer withstand how you want everything for yourself alone, they will start avoiding you. The next thing that will happen is that people start holding back what they have from you. If everyone is holding back from you how do you expect to get anything out of life?

It is actually easier on the long run to be selfless than it is to be selfish. Sometimes when you are selfless it may appear as though you don’t even know what you are doing. Your actions are seemingly foolish. The one who keeps holding back and is getting things done for himself alone and seems to be moving fast. That can’t go on for so long. You have to come to terms with the consequences of your actions soon.

Please have a rethink on how you have been going about everything. Some people are not just selfish, it is now obvious to everyone around them that they are so selfish and are being cut out of important connections in their life.

It may be hard today to give more of yourself to others. It can be painful. It may also look like you are losing what you need so bad and don’t even have enough of. If only you will let go and not just with your personal resources but also act selflessly in everything you do, you will eventually have more than you thought you wanted. Life continues and it is always easier because of the many others around us who understand that life is not always about them. Live life to the fullest with the understanding that life is not about you alone!
