Daily Insights

Daily Insights are insightful truths about reality that empower us to transform our way of thinking.

They are often challenging, and give us the coaching and courage to behave in a way we might never have thought of. They’re great to dwell on and remind ourselves of throughout the day.

The Daily Insights book can be purchased through the Wisdom Shop. Book sections have been indicated for each Insight.

Self-control

Self-control is the ability to postpone immediate pleasure in order to confront uncomfortable tasks. Will-power comes after insight, not before.

False guilt

False guilt blames us for things beyond our control. Helpful guilt enables us to accept responsibility for our choices, and eradicate mistaken beliefs and ideas.

Counterfeit security

If you resort to any activity to mask problems, hide from people or as a substitute for love, then that activity will become compulsive. It is your counterfeit ‘security’.
