85. Negative Motivation
Howard took me aside later and said, “That pill stealing nurse walked hand-in-hand with Felix to the grave.  Now she’s crawled out.  He’s dead.  I’m angry, but she only put two lives in danger.   I’ll never know how many people I’ve put at risk driving drunk.  The guilt is getting to me. ”

I said, “Too many people avoid feeling guilty by finding someone to blame.  I’m betting you’ll use guilt as a motivator. I know you’ve used pain and remorse that way.”

Today I’ll use negative emotions as a motivator.
