"With every choice you make, be conscious of what need it serves"

Reconsider Choices that are Motivated:

1. For Money ... – an extrinsic reward

2. For Approval – an extrinsic reward

3. To Escape Punishment – leading to resentment

4. To Avoid Shame – end up suffering severe self-judgment

5. To Avoid Guilt – a world full of misery

6. To Satisfy a Sense of Duty – we cut off our needs
