Self Sabotaging Nonsense

If you’re going to see what’s truly beneficial in your life, your mind will have to become very still. Many of the developed tools considered to be beneficial are later found to be self sabotaging nonsense…

It’s more important to develop practical tools that have actual benefits in their results than to reach out aimlessly for things that later prove to be self sabotaging nonsense.
