Identify a time you failed, and listen for practical steps
Learn & memorize Scripture about your trait Hosea 4:6 (NIV) . . . my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children.
Tell someone and ask for their prayers James 5:16 (NIV) Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.
Be filled with the Spirit 2 Peter 1:3 (NIV) His divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness through our knowledge of him who called us by his own glory and goodness.
Receive inner healing (if applicable) Isa 61:1

because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners"
Confess any bitterness or offense (if applicable) Matthew 5:23-24 (NIV) Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar.

Continue renewing your mind by meditating (memorizing) on eternal things Colossians 3:1-4 (NIV) Since, then, you have been raised with Christ, set your hearts on things above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things. For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God. When Christ, who is your life, appears, then you also will appear with him in glory.
Keep in step with the Spirit (stop & choose correctly) Galatians 5:25 (NIV) Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
