    Superbly fulfilling

    The quickest route to an empty life is to live only for yourself. There is no pain greater than the pain of total self absorption.

    Yet there is always a way to get away from that unbearable emptiness. The moment you begin to sincerely care for someone or something beyond yourself, a golden warmth enters your life.

    As soon as you let go of a few of your own self-centered concerns, you start to make room in your world for real joy and fulfillment. When you give of yourself, you begin to experience a magnificent sense of purpose that cannot be reached in any other way.

    Behind every desire is a longing for meaning and fulfillment. A truly powerful way to quench that thirst for meaning is to live beyond yourself.
    Before you speak, choose words that will serve a greater good. Before you act, choose deeds that will make a positive contribution to the world around you.

    In small things and large, use the opportunity of each moment to look and to act beyond your own concerns. The success you create by so doing will be real and superbly fulfilling.
