Takers who take more than they need often end up worse off.

Taking more than one needs can backfire. While people may feel compelled to take what they want to meet their needs, excessive taking can damage reputations & relationships. History shows that those who take without giving back often lose respect in their communities, making it difficult to engage with others. Examples like Jonas Salk and Frank Lloyd Wright demonstrate how selfishness and a refusal to share credit can lead to the loss of accolades and opportunities, despite their achievements. The "taker tax" of a tarnished reputation frequently outweighs any short-term gains from over-taking.
