There’s is nothing quite so dead as a self centered man. A man who holds himself up as a self – made success, measures himself by himself and is pleased with the result. His favorite letter “I” – Wesley Huber.
One of the reasons why pride lifts you up is to let you down. One of Zig Ziglar’s words I love is “you’ll always have everything in life that you want if you’ll help enough other people get what they want. You can’t achieve anything if you are so stuck up with yourself.
One of the most priceless decisions you can make in your life is to something for someone who does not have the power or resources to return the favor. A man who gives himself to help other people, cannot help but be abundantly rewarded. When you have the principle “Me, Myself and I” in all that you do, you will be nothing but a failure.
Being a servant isn’t always the most natural thing to do. As humans we are conditioned to think only about ourselves and that explains why people tend to write their own names first whenever they are offered a new pen. Despite our pursuit for happiness and success, more is accomplished when nobody cares who gets the credit.
The way to the throne room is usually through the servants quarters. God has called to serve those whom we lead. We must be willing to serve without trying to reap the benefits. We can not truly say we have achieved success until we’ve learned to serve. For everytime we tend to be selfish, we often miss what God wants us to do and see.
We cannot push ourselves no matter how strong or independent we are. It’s good to believe in yourself but don’t be conceited. A conceited person never gets anywhere because he thinks he has arrived. If your slogan is “Me, Myself and I” today I encourage you to drop it and change it to “You, Me, and Us”.
