No one wants to fail, and my job was to help those around me be successful. If they were successful I would be successful. (Davis Illingworth, Jr, businessman, author)
In the self-centered attitude of so many today, personal success is their life’s goal. Too often, it’s of little concern to them how many people may be hurt or “run over” in their climb up the corporate ladder. Illingworth’s comment is a reminder of how to make both parties successful.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others (Philippians 2:3-4).
