We have within us, between our ears, a simple thing called conscience which teaches us there’s a right and wrong approach to life.
We know when we act contrary to our conscience we feel guilty, and this feeling impacts negatively our thoughts.
This behavior bestows upon us what author David Schwartz called the guilt complex in his book The Magic of Thinking Big.
The guilt complex is what in turn may break our thought process becuase our mind is constantly asking, ‘will I get caught? Will I get caught?’
We have within us a deep desire to be right, think right, and act right. But our human nature, if let by itself, goes wild, derails us against our conscience to act in the wrong way, which derails the course of our life.
How can we take our behavior into our own hands to avoid situations that will cause us to ask ourselves, Will I get caught?, and instead of creating productive daily habits to live intentionnally for excellence, we spend our mind capacity to imagine ways to get away with it.
