Help with translation: Not for Self, But for Others

by Thomas Reed

Hello! I am looking for a correct translation, english to latin, on how to say "another before myself" and "the needs of others are greater than my own", and possibly "put others before yourself", if possible. It would be a great help, i just don't want this phrase coming out not being coherent. Thank you for your time!

Hi, Thomas. Try this: Non sibi, sed aliis. Not for self, but for others.
