Help, how do I control this thing? 6XPPHU&OHDUDQFH&RQWLQXHV
â€œThere is little that can withstand a man who can conquer himself.â€? â€” Louis XIV, 1638-1715, known as Louis the Great, who became king of France at the tender age of 5. Now that you have a giant on your side, nothing is impossible. Staying with the giant who will definitely move you forward will take courage and, at the same time, will connect you to who you really are and empower you. Once you get momentum going in your life, i.e. changes taking place and progress is obvious, it may scare the bejesus out of you. (Thatâ€™s an Irish term brought to the South, at least thatâ€™s where I learned it.) This will be the ultimate comfort zone test. If your life is moving and changing faster

than you can keep up with, you may wish to put the skids on it or at least slow it down. Question: Why would you want to interfere with movement in a positive direction? Letâ€™s percolate on that one a while and look at some possible resistances or thoughts that keep momentum in check. These all fall under the category of that thing we are trying to master â€Ś attitude.
1. Avoiding risks to stay with what we know even if itâ€™s painful. 2. Settling for less. 3. Could if he/she would be different. 4. I try to change â€Ś but. 5. Thatâ€™s easy for you to say. 6. Iâ€™m not rich enough to do that. 7. Iâ€™m not lucky. One thing your giant will do is make you keenly aware of even slight changes in attitude. Itâ€™s always been easy to recognize poor attitude in others, but we can justify and rationalize our own day in and day out until we decide to wad those old ways up and throw them away.

choose my stories. He gets a little uptight about these articles. Oh me, whatâ€™s a person to do? Final brushstroke: I should have taken the higher ground and been kinder. Sometimes, it feels so good to wallow in the mud, even if itâ€™s just for a few minutes,
but it doesnâ€™t produce a good nightâ€™s sleep. Iâ€™ll try to be kinder next time.
Artistâ€™s quote â€œKindness is an inner desire that makes us want to do good things even if we do not get anything in return. It is the joy of our life to do them. When we do good
things from this inner desire, there is kindness in everything we think, say, want and do.â€? â€” Emmanuel Swedenborg, 16881772, scientist, philosopher and theologian
