Listen with regard when others talk. Give your time and energy to others; let others have their own way; do things for reasons other than furthering your own needs. When you become detached mentally from yourself and concentrate on helping other people with their difficulties, you will be able to cope with your own more effectively. Somehow, the act of self-giving is a personal power-releasing factor. Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away.
