The difference between egoism and altruism is: one is looking out for the self and the other is looking out for others.
It can be quite a challenge to focus on the latter when we have so much going on in our lives today. So much pressure to succeed with all of the distractions and information coming at us at such a high rate of speed. As well as getting caught up in what society is telling you what’s important in life. And it has nothing to do with helping others.
Wayne Dyer said rather than asking “What’s in it for me?” that maybe you can ask, “How may I serve?”
Seems like a pretty simple question. Maybe that’s what we need right now.
A little simplicity.
