I love the chorus to Michael Jackson’s hit when he says “I’m starting with the man in the mirror and I am asking him to change his ways”.
How do you know when you are missing the point of something? When do you know you are like the very person who you complain about or who drives you crazy? I ask these questions have rhetorically and half seriously. These questions are sometimes the toughest questions we face on a day-to-day basis because the challenge is right in front of us and driving us crazy or it is right in front of us and we are not aware that it’s driving other people around us crazy.
I hope and pray for people, especially my loved ones that they will be willing to examine things about themselves and their lives that may need to change. It could be personality related, health or weight, financial or relationship issues, but unless one is willing to consider the possibility that what they are doing currently needs a fix, than they will not be able to see what needs to change. By no means am I saying that this process is easy in any way; heck if that was the case then people in my profession would not be needed. However in order to Live the life you’ve imagined and make all your dreams come true you may need to do a deep introspection of your life, health, finances, relationships, and your own personality and how YOU effect other people. This is the only way we can make the kind of progress most of us are chasing.
