I’ve been on a guilt trip ever since yesterday when I knew I made a mistake on the advice I gave. Today, is a confirmation of that mistake and so the guilt trip continues and the burden is great. 23% extra profit missed because of my stupid advice. I feel ultra bad as it wasn’t my intention to stop others from making money, especially when this person has been ever so nice, gentlemanly and generous to me. How can I make it up to him ? I sincerely hope, one day I am able to make it up to him. But right now, there is nothing I can do except regret and cry over spilt milk. How can I change this, turn it around so that I do not consistently make mistakes ? How can I change from a brainless person to someone with brains ?
I hope he finds it in his heart to forgive me. I’ll try to do better next time, god knows I’ve been saying that consistently too !
Ajahn Brahm mentioned that if you make a mistake you should do the following ;
1. Admit it or Acknowledge it
2. Let it go
3. Learn from it
I am obviously having problems letting it go. I just can’t understand why I made that mistake. It must be an ego problem. How do I let go of this stupid ego that is dragging me down into an abyss.
