We forget who we are, how powerful we really are, and what we really want. The only solution to that is to remind ourselves on a systematic basis - and, in doing so, to groove it further into our minds. The consequences of not keeping our highest interest on "top of our minds" is that we will wander and waste the potential of life, not in term of some achievement mania but in terms of true happiness and satisfaction with life.
The daily reading also takes away some of the doubt and anxiety that occupies are minds when we go through life with a murky self conversation without really nailing down what we want it to be.
