"You could help direct the world, on its careening trajectory, a bit more toward heaven and a bit more away from Hell. Once having understood Hell, researched it, so to speak–particularly your own individual Hell–you could decide against going there or creating that. You could aim elsewhere. Y...
"When the internal critic puts you down using comparisons, here’s how it operates: First, it selects a single, arbitrary domain of comparison. Then it acts as if that domain is the only one relevant. Then it contrasts you unfavorably with someone truly stellar, within that...
"The first step, perhaps, is to take stock. Who are you? When you buy a house and prepare to live in it, you hire an inspector to list all its faults–as it is, in reality, now, not as you wish it could be. You’ll even pay him for the bad news. You need to know. You need to discover the home’s ...
"Orient yourself properly. Then–and only then–concentrate on the day. Set your sights at the Good, the Beautiful, and the True, and then focus pointedly and carefully on the concerns of each moment. Aim continually at Heaven while you work diligently on Earth. Attend fully to the future...
"Why refuse to specify [the outcome]? Because while you are failing to define success, you are also refusing to define failure, to yourself, so that if and when you fail you won’t notice, and it won’t hurt. But that won’t work! You cannot be fooled so easily. You will instead carry with you a ...

If you have your internal critic under control, use it to your advantage. The critic should look at internal and external imperfections and identify what can be fixed and what cannot.
Most issues can’t be solved immediately. It can be tempting to skip this step, but persevere. Sta...
We can’t ever know all the factors that led to an outcome and by comparing ourselves to others in any domain we do so as if we could. This arrogance leads to conclusions that are unrealistic, and too often detrimental to one’s self-esteem and sense of empowerment.
