Choosing Humility in a Self Centered World

Here is a provocative yet practical question: Why should I be humble in a self centered world? It’s an eat or get eaten, survival of the fittest environment out there. So who will look out for me if not myself?

In the majority of our life’s experiences and interactions, it seems that people are it in for themselves, looking how they can further their own agenda, make more money, network in higher circles, etc. If you fit their needs, they might do something for you in return, but it’s primarily give and take. Yes, there are those we come across that are truly kind and compassionate, but by and large — especially with a driven ambition, person — it’s all about me, me, me.
So the question remains: Why choose humility, why be caring and empathetic, in a world surrounded by sharks? How can we advance and be successful without focusing solely on ourselves?
Please join Rabbi Simon Jacobson and discover that on the contrary — bittul and humility are actually the keys and foundation to achieving the greatest successes in life. Choosing humility will have unbelievable and far reaching implications in our lives.
