The most absolutely worthless and destructive advice regarding anything unpleasant or undesirable is this: “Try not to think about it.”
Don’t think about it?
Now all you can do is think about IT!
Instead, what we need is something active and positive, something to DO, not something to NOT do.
We need something that launches our entire being… emotions, thoughts, and behaviors… in the right direction.
To that end “IT” needs to be something positive that you want, not something negative that you don’t want. (More on this in subsequent lessons)
