She would not beat herself

She would not beat herself


The last article I wrote was about “Mindfulness”.  Living in the present, the here and now and not in the past or future.


“But she would not beat herself.”  This is a quote from a Stephen King novel, The Girl who loved Tom Gordon.  

Funny name for a book that is NOT a love story.   

Focus is your one ability for you to hone to razor sharpness.


Self-defeating behavior is the inability to focus on the here and now.


Face your demons and monsters and just plain stop fiddling around with your electronic things and 

making no advancement.


Your future depends on your being present now so your past can dictate where you end up.


Proceed and if you are beaten let the demons and monsters (someone else) defeat you; don't defeat yourself (not trying, quitting, etc.)

Read that a couple of times and you’ll understand that what you do now determines your future and your past.
