Pulled to Act

You often look only with your internal states, but an eagle’s perspective on yourself from the outside can improve your situation. Look from there and start behaving how your model-self would act.

Have Better Explanations

Beliefs should make your life better. Choose between valid beliefs and choose the most empowering. What you do, you consider right. On some level you accept the terms.
