Advice is what we ask for when we already know the answer but wish we didn't.

Thoughts of self

Imagine how it would be to go through this entire day without ever thinking of yourself. Think of all the concerns that would suddenly drop away. You’d be free to speak and act without worrying about what others would think. Your courage would soar because you’d be completely immune to fear and rejection. There would be no time wasted in being angry or taking offense or worrying. The limitations you’ve placed on yourself would completely disappear.

Just think of how much you could accomplish. Just think of the possibilities you could fulfill. Just think of the clear and refreshing sense of freedom it would bring.

The fact is, you can do it today. You can indeed be free of your own limitations, free from useless anger, worry, and despair. Decide to expand your focus beyond those familiar old self concerns which hold you down. Lose yourself in your own positive possibilities, and see what great things you can make happen today.

— Ralph Marston
