“You have to be selfish before you can be self less”
Out of all the quotes I’ve ever heard. This one resonates with me the most. I’ve always had trouble justifying why I feel like I’m always critiquing myself and trying to improve. It’s because I’m focusing on myself, I’m being selfless so that I can make myself happy, successful, and at ease with where my life is.
I think a lot of people forget about focusing on there self and always end up worrying about others. This is human nature but we can not lives and we have our own struggles. These struggles need attention to detail and constant effort. Working on yourself will only free you up in the future to fully give back to others. Whether what you desire to give is attention, money, etc. When you accumulate success in your personal life, there will reach a point where you will eventually have your success pour into the lives of people around you.
