I have been lent a book called “The Amputee Coach” to read by my physiotherapist. It has some very good material & great exercises, but it attempts to define life in terms of mind & emotions and brings up Maslow and the hierarchy of needs or as it now called the science of happiness. It is essentially humanistic and uses devices like writing down your fears, frustrations & hang-ups and then writing down your goals. I’ve always been averse to writing down my “goals” because I don’t subscribe to the notion that whatever the mind of man can conceive the mind of man can achieve.
I have never been able to crystallize my reasons for this until; just now. I don’t write out my goals nor have I ever done because all my goals have been written down for me in the Holy Bible. I just need faith to follow them. The Lord Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of my faith. My mental balance comes from him.
