A Selfish Program?

HOW many times have we heard this expression and perhaps wondered how anything selfish can be good for us? How can we acquire humility, gain sincerity, overcome resentments, be strictly honest with ourselves and others, and be selfish?

I believe we associate selfishness with meanness, thinking of one's self in material advantages, and living for one's own comfort and desires. Also, we have abused ourselves so much during our drinking careers, that to give ourselves some real earnest thought and attention is hard to comprehend at first.
