The Starting Point of Transformation
One of the most important things you can do when creating true transformation in your life as well as the lives of those you lead is to pull your head out from under the rug and DEFINE REALITY.
This is especially important in today's world that is filled with the illusions of "Success" and "Highlight Reels."
No matter how good or bad your situation is right now if you are living in fantasy land, the harder you will get punched in the mouth once you are faced with reality.
Don't Fake It Til You Make It....Face It Until You Make It.
Remember this: The gap between expectation and reality is where the disappointment lies.
The more unrealistic you are about your current situation, the farther you fall when you set your expectations high.
This is why I don't agree with many of the gurus out there that say to set BIG GOALS!
Never do this until you have defined your reality.
This is exactly why most people quit and even worse, fall back to what's familiar.
Remember: You may be able to fool people but you will never fool the person staring back at you in the mirror every day!
