When guilt rears its ugly head, confront it, discuss it and let it go. The past is over. Forgive yourself and move on.
~ Unknown

Welcome to the 39th edition of the MayWeather Newsletter series, a weekly newsletter where I share my thoughts and new ideas on things that I learn on personal productivity; somewhere between due diligence, good thinking and note-taking.

Hey <<First Name>>!
If you’ve ever experienced a deep-seated feeling of remorse for an action or inaction, you might have tasted guilt.
Remember when you stole from the pot and you were caught in the act by your mum? The finest way to explain guilt is when a past experience is renewed in the present moment. A creepy emotional state! I find it fascinating that with guilt comes shame! It’s quite
shameful that shame itself is shameless: comes unannounced!
How would you feel if everybody can see how you feel about your actions and/or inactions? Will you be scared if I told you of your fears? And your next line of action? How to avoid me the next time you see me afar off?
Too often than not, that scary line of thought that makes you believe you cannot make peace with your past experience is an invalid one!

Everything you want is on the other side of fear.
~ Jack Canfield

What if you look back on your past experience compassionately rather than with a guilty heart? How about you give your past the benefit of the fact that you acted based on the level of wisdom and understanding you had? Now that you know better, you’d do better. Right? If your answer is No, I really don’t know again.
There is no such a thing as living fully without letting go of the extra baggage: the burden of carrying guilt into your present moment robs you of living life fully and a brighter future. Guilt, shame and their entire family members are thieves!
My testimony is that of one who chose to live with no guilt in life. You can do the same. Choose to consistently take proactive steps in spite of your fears. Face it!


Weekly Thread of Wisdom 
  1. Here is a lie often sell to ourselves: I am a private person so I don’t want to build in public. Out of excitement, I’d share a personal example: Kintan and I started a daily writing challenge in November 2020. At about the same time, #Ship30by30 became a thing on Twitter. Guess what! While it now costs $99 to join #Ship30by30’s community of online writers in a 30 – day writing challenge, Kintan and I are still speaking English. Take Home Lesson: Build in public by actually building in public. Help yourself and numerous internet users by sharing your best ideas and aggregating the finest ideas on subjects that interest you.
  2. Don't be afraid of sharing your work with others. It is the only way you learn what is working for you and what is not. If it's the fear of public criticism, be rest assured that a feedback (positive/negative) is a blessing. Embrace it and iterate.
Book Review
Digital Wealth Book

This book will awaken your consciousness to leveraging the internet. 

The Digital Wealth Book is a well-researched book that gave accurate accounts of the past & the present; and a vivid revelation of the future.

In Closing 
To record your thoughts and ideas daily is a two-edged sword: in the long run, you’d have done yourself a huge favour and also helped someone out there.
