“Consciously you may desire success. You may read books and attend seminars, only to undermine your efforts in ways both subtle and creative. Consider those times friends or loved ones you trusted advised against doing something, but you did it anyway because you just felt you had to.
Of course, sometimes it’s best to follow your own counsel. (Where would Columbus have been without it?) But if you see a pattern of blindly stepping into potholes despite others’ guidance – like buying lemon of an automobile when a mechanic friend thought it was a bad deal, getting an expensive item you didn’t really need,gambling more money that you could afford to lose, or getting involved in a hurtful relationship – consider this: Haven’t you already punished yourself enough?”
Dan Millman, in “Everyday Enlightenment”
