“Never lose sight of this important truth, that no one can be truly great until he has gained a knowledge of himself, a knowledge which can only be acquired by occasional self-reflection.”
- Johann Georg Ritter von Zimmermann

Pay attention several times today to what you are feeling.  Use that information to learn about yourself.  And if you don’t like it, use the Freeze-Frame® technique to change yourself.
