“By helping yourself, you are helping
humankind. By helping humankind, you are helping yourself. That’s the law of
all spiritual progress.” — Christopher Isherwood


Perhaps helping humankind may be a bit beyond your immediate
focus; but be that as it may, be flexible and accommodating to the needs,
preferences, and individual situations of other people. Here, emphasis is on
“accommodating.” You are flexible enough to help meet the needs of
other people or at least to not prevent those needs being met. Further, the
preferences of other people are considered to the extent that they don’t preclude
satisfying your needs and interests. The point is that room is made for others
and your priorities so long as this does not prevent your long-term success.
