The Essential Error

“Every time one admits that something can stop him, he admits that something is more powerful than he is. So saying, ‘That will stop me’ is a statement, a postulate, ‘I have less power.’ …
“Well, the essential error in all this is the fact that he started to accumulate data about the things that could stop him. He started to concentrate and put all of his attention upon things that stopped him, rather than things he could keep rolling—things that he could keep rolling and stop.
“If he’d gone on keeping his attention on what he was doing and so forth and didn’t refuse to be stopped, but just ignored the fact that he could be stopped by an exterior force, he’d be going yet.”
— Ron Hubbard, Author
