Self-pity is an easy trap to fall into when you don’t take responsibility for what happens to you. Beware. It’s a dangerous trap. Any degree of self-pity will keep you from realizing your goals, your destiny.
Ask yourself two questions to know if you indulge in self-pity:
Do you tend to blame others and things out there for your troubles? Do you tend to continually whine about the bad things that happen to you? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you’re trapped in the “poor me” world.
Avoid that world completely. The Warrior Spirit does not go there. When you indulge in self-pity, you attract people and circumstances that will weaken you and take you deeper into the “poor me” world. Self-pity, along with its heavy emotions, will sap your energy. Remember, you need sufficient energy– sufficient personal power, to change your reality. That’s why this book guides you to build and preserve your energy.
You have the power to control your thoughts. You have the power to make different choices when you want to change the results in your life. This requires an awareness of your inner world that you will soon discover. As you take responsibility for everything that you experience in your life, you will grow your personal power.
In the path of the Warrior Spirit, you build your inner power as you seek to attain a goal that is temporarily out of your reach.
There’ no turning back now. Even if you close yourself off to the idea that you have the power to change your reality, your life will not be the same…
