Are we addicted, to chaos and drama in life?

Did you know that many of us in this world today are totally addicted to a life filled with chaos and drama? That what we have become "comfortable" with, is actually amazingly unhealthy?

We seem to shift between long periods of drama with lovers, children, friends and/or co workers, to moments or days of calmness, before we create, yes, create, more drama.

Watch this brief video to see exactly what I am referring to.

Is it time to slow down, and evaluate life from a different perspective? If we desire, and create a plan, anyone can let go of a life filled with drama, to one that subsists on more peace.

Love, peace, David

Success...through sacrifice? Powerful.


During a discussion recently, the topic regarding our need to follow our dreams came up. A woman had to decide if the challenge of working seven days a week for a twelve month period of time was worth the potential end result of creating the life and work she's always desired. Within one hour, the result from our caller survey was unanimous . . . 9 out of 10 people said it would be worth the risk. What about you? Would you be willing to commit to one year of this type of schedule to be doing what you've always wanted? Could you look at this situation creatively enough and devise a mental plan of attack where you could survive the demands of this type of a schedule? Realistically, what is 12 months of your life, if on average we live for 924 months?

I believe a lot of times we take the easier, "conforming" path in a life we forget just may be able to be filled with more excitement and joy if we are willing to make a few different sacrifices along the way. We fall victim to the belief that by doing what the "average" person would do is really the only way to play it. And I admit following your own journey and going after your dreams, which almost always means creating a nonconformist path, will ruffle a few feathers of those who want you to play it safe . . . be more normal. But the rewards in many cases are too great to pass up.

As an example, when we make the decision to go to school full-time and work full-time, we are able to create the confidence in ourselves that too few people seem to have, a confidence and exploration of our greatness that many never get a chance to experience.
