What is righteousness

This is a passage from my book called “The Rough Journey of Survival”:

When a person decides to perform a righteous act, is that individual really executing a virtuous deed? Some people will carry out a noble action for their egocentric needs. There are people who will fulfill a respectable deed to seek the approval of God. Individuals will accomplish honorable acts in order to expunge their sins from a guilty conscience. People will engage in ethical deed in order to experience a joyous emotion. When is an honest action actually righteous? A righteous act is honored a person completes a moral deed without a self-centered cause. An individual should never
practice a decorous action if he or she is considering how the worthy act will affect his or her own demands. If every individual reenacts a righteous deed without a selfish ambition, this imperfect world will be a little closer to perfection.
