{Liars, Deceivers, & Manipulators}

“Yah, you know who you are.  You constantly BaDgEr us with your lies, deceive us to believe things that are not true about ourselves and others, and manipulate us to do absolutely stupid and crazy things that no SaNe person would ever do.  You’re relentless, fickle, exasperating, and oh so annoying.  One day CoLd, the next day HoT.  Did I also mention two-faced?  You say one thing and then the next day just the opposite.  You’re a drama queen and you can not be trusted!”

Liars, Deceivers, and Manipulators.  a.k.a. FEELINGS.  Don’t get me wrong, they are not all bad.  In fact some of them are pretty awesome.  They make life sweet and I LOVE SWEET.  But they can also make life miserable.  Feelings are horrible rulers.  Putting them in charge is a recipe for disaster, yet, so often that is exactly what we do – let them dictate how we live.  It’s like letting them drive the car.  I promise you, they will eventually take you in the ditch every time!

If feelings are driving your car tell them to get in the backseat.  It’s time to take the wheel and DrIvE!

Packing List

I don’t know about you, but one of my least favorite things about taking a trip is packing. It takes me a lot of time and preparation and I just don’t like it.    However, I know if I want to have the most enjoyable trip/vacation possible I need to be prepared.   The journey on your way to your dreams is no different.  It requires a packing list that looks something like this:

  • “S.M.A.R.T.” dream:

S– Specific (You have to know exactly what it is you are going after)

M– Measureable (You must be able to measure your dream by asking, “Did I achieve my dream?” and then be able to answer with a simple “Yes” or “NO”)

A– Achievable

R– Relevant (It is something that you really want)

T– Time Specific (When are you going to reach your goal – give a specific date.)

  • SUPPORT SYSTEM this includes resources such as books, motivational materials, friends, family and someone that you can be accountable to
  • TRACKING SYSTEM to track your progress using a journal or calendar
  • BELIEF that you can and will do it
  • RELENTLESS PURSUIT to see your dream come to pass – Determination and grit that refuses to quit
