The urge to satisfy a short-term need for pleasure can lead to long-term, negative effects on life. Do not be deceived by your thoughts and temptations of the ego. When you are being put to the test, and it is against your better judgment, you have the power within you to resist temptation. Always practice self-control and make the right choices.
Are you a person that is willing to accept new ideas and try different things or are you closed-minded, set in your ways, and resist change? It’s good to have strong views about a specific topic, but it is also good to be balanced and listen to other people’s opinions. You just might learn something new and better. When you adjust your perspective, and try new things, your life will be more fulfilling. How do you know for sure whether or not you like something if you don’t try it? You are missing out on so much in life when you stay in the same old routine. It’s time to come out of your comfort zone and take that step of faith.
