Trouble with your Past? This will help

If you are like most people I know, myself included, you often find yourself thinking about the past.  At times, this remembering turns into a pit of despair that sucks you in without your consent and leaves you mired in the murkiness of bad decisions for hours or perhaps days.

You Want It?

Getting what you want is not difficult. Let me say that again, “Getting what you want is not difficult.” The problem, for most people, is not the process of reaching their goal and getting what they want.  The problem is in knowing what it is they want.  What is IT?
