5 Truths. Maybe Pleasant, Maybe Not.

  1. Envy is the key to it all. It is what drives our economy. It’s what gets us out of bed in the morning. Before you all go off on me, I’m going to write more about this in my next post, but for now, just stay with me.
  2. You are more brain-washed and programmed than you think you are. It’s there, trust me.
  3. Change can be, and usually is, hard. Your actions over time have become your behaviors. Your behaviors over time become your habits. Your habits have gotten you to where you are today. Good or bad, right or wrong.
  4. Touching briefly again on #1, Desire is spawned by envy and envy leads to trouble. Envy leads to frustration which in turn leads to aggression.
  5. We are not embracing “The American Dream,” but the “American Daydream.”
