Happy Monday, my friend.
I'm re-reading Psycho-Cybernetics by Dr. Maxwell Maltz.
In chapter 5, page 67 he writes something that struck me like a thunderbolt. Here it is:
"Our errors, mistakes, failures, and sometimes even our humiliations were necessary steps in the learning process. However, they were meant to be means to an end, not an end in themselves. When they
have served their purpose, they should he forgotten.
If we consciously dwell on the error or consciously feel guilty about the error and keep berating ourselves because of it, then – unwittingly -we make the error or failure itself the "goal" that is consciously held in imagination and memory. The unhappiest of mortals are those who insist on reliving the past, over and over in their imagination, continually criticizing themselves for past mistakes, continually condemning themselves for past sins."
Make it a great day.
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!
