What exactly do you mean by "for the wrong reasons", Two Paths? Do you mean that you ACTED wrong, or that you acted right for WRONG reeasons?
If you mean the second one, it's very common: many martial practitioners start feeling like heroes as soon as they have some skill (or before [IMG]http://www.fightingarts.com/forums/ubb/smile.gif[/IMG]) and will sometimes perform good feats - but will do so in order to feed their ego just as much (or more) as in order to help. I guess this wears out with time provided you want it to.
If you mean the first one, just follow Harlan's advice. Burn what you bowed to, and bow to what you burnt... It should be much easier to start anew thereafter.
I wish you courage and success.
