Sometimes we create and permeate our own snarl of hesitancies into our heads that prevent us from solving the problems that we know how to solve.
We introduce unmerited and disconnected emotions into the equation. We build imaginary barriers that prevent us from freely solving our own problems. We disavow our own wisdom when the problems are ours, yet we continue to offer this same advice and wisdom to others.
Don’t get in your own way so much. Apply the wisdom you have with yourself.
“On one level, wisdom is nothing more than the ability to take your own advice. It’s actually very easy to give people good advice. It’s very hard to follow the advice that you know is good… If someone came to me with my list of problems, I would be able to sort that person out very easily.” — Sam Harris —
