Everyone has aspirations in life, something that they aspire to achieve in both short- and long-term. We are all, ultimately, on our own personal journey, walking towards our own focus and goals.
Of course, when we say "we", we mean you.
There are many well-known sayings that could be misinterpreted in life as greed. Sayings such as:
"In order to let someone love you, you need to learn to love yourself, first."
"Light the candle in your own home before attempting to light someone else's."
Now, although the above sayings could be seen as selfish, they mean something else entirely.
