Improve Well-Being With Generosity

Dr. Mehmet Oz, M.D. and Dr. Mike Roizen, M.D. By Friday, 21 October 2016 12:13 PM Current | Bio | Archive

When George Harrison wrote "I Me Mine" in 1969, he was commenting on the oversized egos of John Lennon and Paul McCartney, which ended up pulling the band apart less than a year later.

In Harrison's Eastern faith, a person could not be united with the Higher Power until he or she renounced those three first-person, selfish pronouns.

Psychologists point out that people who use I, me, mine the most are the least secure. They (like certain Beatles and public figures) care more about their self-interests than they do about others.

So if you want to get a peek into the person's true nature, keep count of how often they use first-person pronouns.

And if you think you're a bit too I, me, mine yourself, nurture your ego strength, not egotism.

Egotism clouds your vision. It's ego strength (I can do this!) that fuels a determination to find solutions to health issues and relationship problems.

It also sets you on a path of ever-improving mental and physical health.

To build a strong resolve, start with small steps.

Set goals you can meet for physical activity and nutritional improvements.

Acknowledge your accomplishments when you reach those goals, then set higher ones.

And set goals for volunteering in your community helping those in need.

Notice that your well-being is tied to the well-being of others.
