Something Eastern always seems wise...
Unfortunately, here are the ones you use probably more than any others. They have served you in the very ways you think you wouldn't like. But you keep repeating them and consequently, you keep reaping--and perhaps suffering from--their sometimes overwhelming results:
- That won't work.
- I/we can't afford it.
- It's never been done before.
- Let's form a committee.
- Here we go again!
- We're not ready.
- There isn't time!
- My/our family/friends/organization/church/school/spouse won't like/try/do it.
- It's hard/difficult/impossible.
- I'm/we're scared.
- I'm too fat/lazy/old/ugly/stupid/ignorant.
- I don't want to.
