The dark part of you

The shadow is the “dark side” of our personality because it consists chiefly of primitive, negative human emotions and impulses like rage, envy, greed, selfishness, desire, and the striving for power.

All we deny in ourselves—whatever we perceive as inferior, evil, or unacceptable—become part of the shadow.

The personal shadow is the disowned self . This shadow self represents the parts of us we no longer claim to be our own, including inherent positive qualities.

Traits associated with “being good” are accepted, while others associated with “being bad” are rejected.

Don‘t set SCHEDULE build RITUAL ...

How do some of the most prolific artists in the world motivate themselves? They don't merely set SCHEDULE, they build RITUALS.

It’s a simple act, but doing it the same way each morning habitualizes it and makes it repeatable . It reduces the chance of skipping it or do it differently.

Self mastery is a path, an orientation one chooses to hold toward oneself and the world.

It’s a commitment to never-ending improvement; it’s a process of becoming.

It’s based on the realization that there are parts of us that will always try to hold us back.

Our biggest naysayers aren’t “out there.” They are within us.
