 How can you clear your mind of thought, yet constantly take personal
inventories, yet not dwell on the negatives? You have to think to do
all that and I imagine if you are trying to improve yourself you are
looking at the negatives which in itself is thinking a negative
thought. Why not accept the negative with the positive and learn from
both? People think negative thoughts for a reason- survival instinct.

You can loose a lot of time doing that if you have a bad day. Why not
just work through the mistakes and keep going? Why are you making
mistakes to begin with? Life doesn't give you much of a chance to take
timeouts even if you go at your own pace. You have to think on your
feet in the crunch.
