Tycoonism “Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.”

April 17, 2009

Only those who have learned the power of sincere and selfless contribution experience life’s deepest joy: true fulfillment. -Anthony Robbins

Is it possible for man to be completely selfless? A cynic may say not. But, selfless actions and thoughts are not only possible, but give a real sense of satisfaction and happiness. What do we mean by real selflessness? Selflessness means we act without thought for how we will profit or be rewarded. If we give help to others, but expect recognition or the favor to be returned, this is not a selfless action. True selflessness means we would do the action, even if it was never know to anyone else. Selflessness means we identify with others. Our service to others is not an act of condescending charity in helping others, our action is motivated by a feeling of oneness. We help others because we identify with their problems and their suffering. Selflessness has its own reward.

When you put other people’s happiness before yourself, you are not feeding your ego nor do you do things in order to receive flattery. Selflessness means acting out of a motivation to do the right thing and help others. When we act only out of selfish motives we bind and limit ourselves. And in every action do, we calculate how we might benefit; this attitude hinders the intuitive and spontaneous feelings of the heart. When we act through selfless motives we are helping to expand our sense of self and sense of identity. This enables us to get joy from the achievements of others; it enables us to get joy from serving others. This outlook on life is the best guard against jealousy, meanness and vanity.
