Proverbs Chapter 18, Verse 9 (Amplified Bible)
He who is loose and slack in his work is brother to him who is a destroyer and he who does not use his endeavors to heal himself is brother to him who commits suicide.
Wow! Heavy! So taking care of oneself may not be egotistical but rather an ethical imperative. This reminds me of what Benson Agbortogo writes about in his new book The Business System that Never Fails. He makes the point that love of self is one of the three pillars of success in business.
