Instinctual loves and fears, do not have the ability to be rational, it is up to us to override our desires with our rational mind that naturally can control our behavior if we instruct ourselves on what we choose to do

 

 

I once met a guy who worked for the U.N. in Chile, at the international scouting jamboree, who told me that he based his life on a study in California of successful people and they found two traits, one of which (I forget the other) is that they talk to themselves.

 

If we don’t instruct ourselves to do what we rationally choose, then we would be like a rider on a horse that refuses to pull the reigns.
