Values, opted for and stood by.

I'd like to develop my personal values and become a better person, and would appreciate any advice on that age old question - how to live well.

Some things I am not happy with
- My actions are often driven by profit. I find it difficult to value things in a non financial way
- I often catch myself bigging myself up and belittling others. In small niggly ways, but I notice it.
- I am very insecure and focus my energies on areas of life I have some competency, but these often are selfish and related to money or selfish achievements that don't help anybody else.
Volunteering is an option of course, but initially I want to work on this in an academic way so I'm particular interested in anecdotes and book recommendations.
