Which Program Do You Live By, Every Day Of Your Life?
In the Bible, we are admonished to "Love your neighbor as yourself." I contend we generally love our neighbor far more than we do ourselves because I know very well we would not inflict on our neighbor the handicapping conduct we frequently impose on ourselves. For instance, let us assume you have a neighbor who is in trouble. Things are not going well at home. He is having financial difficulties, is worried about his job, and in desperation he comes to you for some advice. Let's say that after careful consideration of his case you go to your neighbor with a program somewhat as follows: * Get up in the morning and start thinking about yourself right away.
* Let the same old troubled thoughts race through your mind unchallenged. * Blow your top if things don't go just right at home. * Let highway and other traveling conditions get your goat. * Enter your office with a grouch instead of a smile. * Spend more than you earn.
* Be quick to criticize and slow to praise. Get easily upset and annoyed. * Put off until tomorrow things that should be done today. * Let yourself get out of condition mentally and physically. * Stew and fret over business and financial matters.
