= If I find 10,000 ways something doesn’t work that’s not a failure.. every wrong thing discarded is a another step forward.

= the greatest human fear is the interpretation of events to mean “you are nothing.” Drives the ego nuts.
= Compulsive behavior: The brain is in constant search for self-validation and balance
= Resistance is the root of all human suffering. It runs counter to acceptance and love; the essence of the creative universe
= the reason for fear and resistance: “”who will I be if I am not who I am right now?” Your I AM’s declare the story of who you are; the story ferociously protected by your ego. Fear will arise anytime there’s a chance of losing a significant piece of what gives one the sense of being alive.
= the only approval and acceptance you ever need in your life is your own

= The only control you ever have is over yourself. When you come to this understanding, you can transform your world.
= Free yourself from the need or any acceptance other than your own
