Being of Substance or Style

Style or substance that screams for self-satisfaction sucks. Both have to reach beyond itself to others to have significant import.

Yes, I readily agree. It is the naive who think so, or they have a different and incorrect definition of self-satisfaction.

The deepest satisfaction to me comes from satisfying others. Of course, wisdom is always needed; without it dereliction of self and the desire to forever please become unhealthy. Wisdom is the principle thing. Thanks for your comment, Ajey.

Placing the other above yourself will bring the fullest satisfaction. Great post to spark an interesting conversation.

I agree wholeheartedly, Kelly. It is my greatest desire to practice this daily. I am forever conscious of it. Many days I am successful; other days I am not. But I awake, nonetheless, with the same intention daily.
