What are some of the many faces of greed? The face of greed whatever it is you don’t want them to be a part of your persona. Greed is a term that describes cruel people with naked ambition, individuals with an insatiable appetite for riches, those who give new meaning to the word selfish. Greed evokes images of the rich and famous playing with lavish toys such as luxurious yachts, expensive furs, and mansions that resemble palaces. To greedy people, it’s as much about flaunting material trappings as it is about winning the game.
Let’s not equate success and wealth with greed. The fact being that many successful people give generously of their money and their time. Remember that it is also true that you don’t have to be particularly wealthy to give for others. Greed does not discriminate between rich and poor. There are many ways that greed rears its ugly head every day. Greedy people look for smart ways to or loopholes to outsmart rules and regulations, designed to protect the system, for personal gain.
It’s all about me leaders should use their power to help others, not themselves. Greedy people have strong opinions about issues but expect others to shoulder the burdens. They are hypocrites who believe in almost everything as long as it does not affect their personal pocketbook. When the greedy mindset is at work, it is the something for nothing outlook. First in line to ask for more but last in line to put in the work required to earn the rewards.
The something for nothing mindset is prevalent with greedy people; they can take things that don’t belong to them even at the expense of friends and colleagues. It is all about me, and it can be the rallying cry and bluff that many will use to get to the top. Robbing some one’s confidence is often at the upper part of their outlook because they always focus on themselves first. Greedy people care about their needs today and kick problems down the road for others to cope with in the future.
Generous people believe that you gain more satisfaction in life from giving rather than taking. They’ve learned that greedy people are never satisfied that they have enough. They’re like sharks that spend their entire life hunting and consuming. All the oceans in the world can’t fill these eating machines. We are such a competitive society. We measure success by finishing in first place, making it to the top of our game, and having better toys than our neighbors. We value instant gratification by encouraging people to consume rather than to save for a rainy day; people borrow money to prove that they live largely.
We as a society idolize people who drive expensive cars, wear the latest fashions, and live in luxurious homes. Greedy or not, it seems we all perpetuate the addiction. Giving does not have to provide an immediate benefit. You can give your children a strong sense of values, self-confidence, and a first-class education. If enough people spend more time making a small gesture each day, for the right, we could transform the world.
Ask yourself do you devote more time to giving or taking? If you are not doing what’s right then now is the time to begin by offering to do so. When you do, you’ll see and feel the good positive transformation that starts at your core.
Until the next time take good care, be and stay well.
