Bhagavad Gita, Chapter 3 verse 10: In the beginning the Lord  created man along with Sacrifice and said: "By this Sacrifice [of desire] you will prosper and fulfill all desires."

Evolution to higher levels of spiritual and material wellbeing is in our DNA. We are born to evolve. Along with creating man, the Lord of Creation simultaneously created sacrifice of desires. In sacrificing desire by serving others' desires (3.09) we perform right and skillful actions (2.47, 2.50) which engender gain and fulfillment of desires, to include the ultimate desire for evolution to the highest level of material and spiritual wellbeing. 'By this Sacrifice [of desire] you will prosper and  fulfill all desires.'
