Life is not so much about ourselves, but what we can do for others. Then in turn if there are good people around you, your needs will be met as well. We get what we are able to teach others. By teaching we have internalized the thoughts and transferred into something valuable for others.
When we first help as many people to get what they most need in life, then eventually in time we will get what we need. All of us are in service profession, from different skill sets we need to look how we best can benefit the lives of others.
Giving happens through selfless service with no expectations of return. With no expectations of return we can focus truly to serve, without getting distracted by rewards. Working this way allows us to truly prioritize the human and the needs.
