What is the reference of this Hadith?
“Never seek your needs from one who does not love to see your success”
I have not come across this as a Hadith of Rasulullah (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam).
Imam Ibn Hibban (rahimahullah) has recorded this as part of a lengthy piece of advice of Sayyiduna ‘Umar (radiyallahu ’anhu).
(Rawdatul ‘Uqala of Imam Ibn Hibban pg. 82-83)
See the full narration here.
And Allah Ta’ala Knows best.
