Yes in a race where we need to achieve or accompanlish something we become selfish. Jealously and selfishness are seen at work places and even among neighbors.
Few years back a neighbor would come and enquire about the family members and the same would be reciprocated. Today we do not know who is our neighbor. They are bothered about themselves .If there is a trouble and help is needed, one should not expect from others.
Some people are just very busy in their ambitions, that they keep ignoring others and try and maintain distance. They do this to accomplish their mission. Because they do not want to allow any kind of distraction from their goal. So, they try to remain reserve most of the times.
Selfishness is not good and thinking only about oneself and one's own family always will not help. There needs to be cooperation in order to survive. We all live with the support of each other. We all help each other in need. Being selfish will only make you stay away from the world, in that case, nobody will help the selfish person.
Do what inspires you !!

Even this challenging situation would ease
People initially be selfish to fulfill their basic needs and then only they try to reach higher levels where they can be of use to the humanity.
" Be Good and Do Good "
When a school bus or city bus dropping passengers, the vehicles landing backside blow horn without patience . These are all just our selfishness.
Actually selfish is good.
You are giving food to starving children. You want there to be no starving kids so that you won't feel bad. You give money to make a difference which makes you feel better. The thought of a kid eating food you helped make you feel good .So you are selfish!
So it is good to be selfish.
You take a piece of candy from a baby.
You don't care about anything else except that you are now happy that you have candy to eat. You don't care who it affected. You don't care about the result of your actions because you are now happy.
Self-centered is not good.
