How to Overcome Selfishness



Change your mindset. Decide to focus on others and not only yourself. When you only care about and focus on yourself, it causes the people in your life to feel disappointed and uncared for.

Understand the importance of honoring people as opposed to revering things or money. Know that people and good relationships are more important than having material possessions.

Start giving to the poor and needy via organizations and charities that support your community. Giving significantly of either your time or money is one way to combat selfishness.

Be sensitive to people's needs around you. Discern who may be in need of your assistance and reach out to them in a caring manner. This will help to keep the focus off of yourself, allowing you to be a more whole and healthy person emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
