Re: How to be less self centered?
Empathy is the key.

Practice placing yourself in other peoples' shoes.

Make an honest effort to try and understand a situation from another individual's perspective or vantage point.

To do this you must be able to temporarily disregard your own feelings/emotions in order to assume that of another.

Look at this endeavor as a challenge. It's a skill that you will refine over time. Practice.

The more you are able to step outside of your individual perspective and gain an awareness for the perspective of others, the less inclined you will feel to only identify with your own emotions/thoughts/perspective.

We're ruled by our compulsions to a large extent, surrender to your sense of your higher power. Read the Alcoholics Anonymous Big Book and work the 12 steps, apply it to any compulsion (irresistible urge to do something you can't resist) and you will be able to bring consciousness to all you do, that transcends self-centeredness.

Re: How to be less self centered?
What does it mean to be self centred? Don't confuse this with being self absorbed!! Being self absorbed is all about 'I' come first in ALL things! Being self centred is about your inner being, being the pivot point around which your world revolves. If you're not self centred, you are not balanced and your world will always be out of kilter! When this is the case, you will be of little use to either yourself or those who are your neighbours in the world around you!

Being self centred is not a bad thing as you can freely give of yourself in a balanced way but being self absorbed is never good as you are a continual drain on everything around you including yourself!

A couple months ago I was listening to a Coast 2 Coast interview and the guest was speaking about spirituality and he was a former alcoholic and was swearing by the 'Big Book' and how valuable/helpful it is. I'm not an alcoholic or anything but I'm always interested in the subject matter of self-help. Who wrote this book and how long is it?

Thanks.
