How Do You Avoid Becoming Your Own Worst Enemy?

From Denny: The simplest truism to keep in mind is to remember we really can be our own worst enemies. That's why it's important to always challenge ourselves to stretch what we think is our belief system. Otherwise, our belief system can become so rigid and brittle that it can shatter easily when a tough life test comes our way.

Read, read, read, and then read some more. Broaden those inner horizons. You don't have to believe everything you read, just think about it, pray on it and eventually the right things from the reading will fall into place comfortably.

Read what you know nothing about, in a field of which you have no expertise. It doesn't matter if you don't understand but maybe 10% of it; you will still have acquired an additional 10% of knowledge and understanding you did not possess before you read it!

Keep pushing yourself to learn more about your world and the world of others. Cultivating this lifestyle will keep the negative thinking at bay and you will end up your own best supporter! :)
