Unselfishness Inventory


Unselfishness Inventory

What does it look like in your life when you are absolutely unselfish?

Write out a vision for yourself…….


These are my questions:

Removing “you” and “your” self-interest from the equation altogether, ask your “self”:

What are my motives?

How will this action/inaction affect the other person?

Is this self-serving or to serve others?

Will anyone be hurt by this?

What do you do in your daily life to demonstrate your unselfishness?
