Your first enemy

Sensual passions are your first enemy.Your second is called Discontent.Your third is Hunger & Thirst.Your fourth is called Craving.Fifth is Sloth & Drowsiness.Sixth is called Terror.Your seventh is Uncertainty.Hypocrisy & Stubbornness, your eighth.Gains, Offerings, Fame & Status wrongly gained,and whoever would praise self& disparage others.That, Namuci, is your enemy,the Dark One’s commando force.A coward can’t defeat it,but one having defeated itgains bliss.- “

Three Ways To Cure Intelligence Excusitis

  1. Never underestimate your own intelligence, and never overestimate the intelligence of others. Don’t sell yourself short. Concentrate on your assets. Discover your superior talents. Remember, it’s not how many brains you’ve got that matters. Rather, it’s how you use your brains that counts. Manage your brains instead of worrying about how much IQ you’ve got.
  2. Remind yourself several times daily, ”My attitudes are more important than my intelligence.” At work and at home practice positive attitude. See the reasons why you can do it, not the reasons why you can’t. Develop an “I’m winning” attitude. put your intelligence to creative positive use. Use it to find ways to win, not to prove you will lose.
Intelligence

3. Remember that the ability to think is of much greater value than the ability to memorize facts. Use your mind to create and develop ideas, to find new and better ways to do things. Ask yourself, “Am I using my mental ability to make history, or am I using it merely to record history made by others?”
