motivation

I find that I often think that I am better than people. I think this realization (or at least the blogging about this realization) came after reading this blog entry written by my dear friend Clarence Pimptown, and yes, that is a moniker.

This feeling of superiority can be good when it motivates me to improve on programs that are already implemented or to treat others with more kindness or something. It's no good when it just makes me feel superior for no real reason, just pointing out people's faults in my head or aloud to others because it makes me feel better about myself. That is no bueno.

These two actions are constantly at war with one another. Hopefully I will one day learn how to let the first beat the second, or at least co-exist with the second in a way that will enable me to both make fun of people AND do things better than them.

My goal for the month of October is to actually do things better than, not just other people, but myself as well... and to try to mock others less. We'll see how it goes.

I think everyone can relate to that. I recently started reading the Miracle of Forgiveness and was kind of called out on it. I'd much rather realize it on my own like you than have Spencer W. Kimball tell you about it.
