The Eighteen "Ities" : 8 & 9.
8. FIXITY :
Remember that you cannot achieve anything if you are fickle-minded.
Choose your goal or ideal and remember it always.
Never let it go out of mind even for a moment.
9. NON-IRRITABILITY :
Irritability is the precursor of violent outbursts of anger.
Watch carefully for the disturbance in the mental equilibrium.
Watch for the ripples of anger that might rise in the lake of the mind.
Quell them then and there.
Do not allow them to assume greater proportions.
Then you will attain peace.
