I started reading The Science of Becoming Excellent by Wallace D. Wattles and Dr. Judith Powell recently and came across something interesting. In chapter 5 they list four things that you need to do to prepare to become great:
- You must release all lust, and cease to be ruled by appetite.
- You must abandon greed.
- Let go of pride and vanity.
- Dismiss envy.
Number 1 is essentially eat to live, don’t live to eat. That’s a basic wellness principle. Number 2 is a little more interesting. They say that it is good to want things if they advance your life in some way, not just to run up the score so to speak. That’s cool.
