Humility is not thinking less of yourself, it’s thinking of yourself less. ~C. S. Lewis

1 Peter 4:10
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

Some people have a pride issue. They believe they are somehow better or more important than others. Some people have an inferiority complex and they think that they are not good enough. Either extreme can be harmful.

It is natural to think about ourselves. We all have our own needs and desires. However, focusing too much on ourselves, either in a positive way or a negative way, can hinder living a successful life.

Instead, we should start focusing on helping others achieve their needs and desires. A human need is to feel important. When you are impacting the lives of others in a positive way, you will not only feel better, but you will start reaping what you are sowing. Others will start helping you. Success is a byproduct of adding value to others.
