The Thinking Behind The Tweet

When we make errors we feel at least a little anxiety.

Anxiety is a dangerous state of mind because it can lead to rumination, worry, and deep and dark fear.

Better to nip anxiety in the bud, before it has a chance to grow into a very bad habit.

When troubles consume your thoughts, remember "Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..."

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

"Your tooth will cease aching if your house is afire..." Frank Channing Haddock made that point in his 1910 classic, 'Power of Will'. 

Long before the medical sciences confirmed the concepts of neuroplasticity, people knew the awesome power & virtually unlimited possibilities available to the human mind. 

If emergencies can remove the pain of toothaches then properly trained minds can do the same thing.

Our minds have the ability to remove the 'negative feelings and thoughts' we encounter during day-to-day life.
