I get why a person might think this because, as a society, we are often fed the message "self before others".

Think of all the influential people you know either now or in history. People like Oprah Winfrey, Abraham Lincoln, Mother Theresa, Jesus, etc. are (or were) people that had a undeniable way of putting others before themselves. They are making (or made) an impact on this world by providing selfless acts of service to the human race.

I consider it a privilege to be a part of a group of young men called the Leadership Academy. The purpose of this group is to develop future leaders. One of the most important sayings of this group is the Warrior Creed by Robert L. Humphrey. It goes like this: "Wherever I go, everyone is a little bit safer because I am there.
Wherever I am, anyone in need has a friend. Whenever I return home, everyone is happy I am there."

Think about your good friends, not just any friend but your GOOD friends. Why do you consider them good friends? Because they make you feel good? They agree with everything you say? You talk and they listen? You can share your thoughts and not be judged by them? You can confide in them? They let you borrow money? They encourage you? They make you laugh?
