Remember! We are here to do. So let's look carefully at what is mine in many and various .
is not just mine: the of others, even just one other, provides me with powerful support. I must have faith and belief in myself, but it's extremely hard to do anything totally on my own.
THEE-name says: even if others share them or also hold the same or similar goals for themselves. Naturally, no can be just mine, but I can still have and hold my values and purposes. That seems certain: I just have to ensure they are right for me.can be mine, as the
creates psychosocial reality and telling stories about endeavours is the most social of things. Stories are the staple of media and entertainment.

However much I would like to think my experiences are me, there are socio-physical factors that affect me. Numerous stimuli in the environment condition my experiences unconsciously; and there is the pervasiveness of experiences transmitted between people, especially those close to me.
In any inter-personal interaction, there may be deliberate manipulation of experiences. However, even when there is not, one person (or both) can project their experiences (emotions, thoughts, intuition, ideas) into the other. This usually occurs without either knowing what is happening. Such experiences are not wholly unknowable. However, being aware takes training, experience and self-discipline.

There are two ways to approach this:
Either: focusing on the one thing that it seems I can call mine: my Two Powers Combine »—even if it takes you away from endeavour as such.
Or: not being so preoccupied with myself, and giving my attention to turning my endeavours into vehicles for creativity.
