In Pursuit of Excellence:

Ellis and Harper (1976, 25) identified several perspectives or beliefs that can interfere with your capacity to perform to your potential and live a joyful life:

1. The belief that you must always have love and approval from all the people you find significant

2. The belief that you must always prove to be thoroughly competent, adequate and achieving

3. The belief that emotional misery comes from external pressures and that you have little ability to control or change your feelings

4. The belief that if something seems fearsome or threatening, you must preoccupy yourself with it and make yourself anxious about it

5. The belief that your past remains all important and that because something once strongly influenced your life, it has to keep determining your feelings and behavior today
