Where is the serpent in this? It's within me.

So, I'm 2 days into the 8-week bible study called the 7 deadly sins. I was asked to ask myself through out the day for the past 2 days "where is the serpent in this?" And at first I wondered it might be evil things that are happening around me. Whether it's through other things or people, but just now, I thought that maybe it's within me. And I think that this might be the answer. Whatever "this" situation might be, the serpent seems to be within me, deceiving me, lying to me, and trying to change my perspective. If I'm unaware of this, I'm doomed. The greatest enemy is inside me, whispering thoughts directly into my mind. This is crazy. That is why I must do as Galations 2:20 says.

I have been crucified with Christ such that I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. - Galatians 2:20
