Habit is the only thing that creates certainty.
-John Stuart Mill
What do you habitually do, say and think? No matter what the answer is if it is a habit you’re getting confident. You may be getting confident that you’re not confident. No matter what it is if it is a habit it carries the power to create belief.
Remember that you must behave in life as at a dinner party. Is anything brought around you? Put out your hand and take your share with moderation. Does it pass by you? Don’t stop it. Is it not yet come? Don’t stretch your desire toward it, but wait until it reaches you.
Are you patient? Patience can be difficult for most people but can be cultivated by focusing intensely and positively on the present. To cultivate gratitude in the now is to fight impatience.
