Any value system worth having is focused on others, not self. (Michael Lockstampfor, minister)
The desire for success seems almost to be inherent. Most of us want to do our best, to climb up in our profession or activity, and to win. Sometimes that ambition may overtake our value system so that we think only of ourselves and our passion to succeed. Real success, however, operates on a different value system, a biblical one.
Be humble, thinking of others as better than yourselves. Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too. (Philippians 2:3-4)
