"If you have an opportunity to help others or incite change, it feels like a moral obligation to do so." ----Elizabeth Chambers
In my coaching I have found the most successful people were driven by an overwhelming commitment to helping others. It was evident in each of our discussions with them and watching my family and friends in their dealings with people.
Some of the other people I worked with were more concerned with their gains, like more prestige, money, and status. Some of those people did succeed, but as a whole people working for the betterment of others were happier and reached higher positions in their companies.
You can't fake compassion for too long without being discovered and discounted. As Martina Naratilova said, "The difference between involvement and commitment is like ham and eggs. The chicken is involved; the pig is committed."
