Forget The Guy With Six-Pack Abs. Look At That Fat Guy!

We all do it. We look at our station in life and dream of being where the rich folks are. Look at their house, their cars and their lifestyle. Man, wouldn’t it be great if we could live like them?

Meanwhile, there are scores of people who look at our life and think similar things. We don’t pay much attention to them though. They’re not where we are and we don’t want to go backward. I mean, who wants to be poorer?

Falsely, we assume that by looking in one direction we can go in that direction. It seems right. Even logical.

What if we’re looking in the wrong direction? What if we’ve got it all wrong?

    Hi Randy

    We diminish ourselves – we do it in all areas of our life.

    I’m OK with the muscle, I lift weights regularly but tweets… not a single one.

    What a loser I am. LOL

    Great message.

    @hillers54 Your health and physical fitness are likely more important than your lack of Tweeting.

    @RandyCantrell I’ll go with that.

    Cheers Randy.

    Great podcast today. You make a great point – why is our tendency to look at what we don’t have? Thanks for the focus.

    @jasfountain Thanks, Jason. Is school out yet down there in Red Stick? Hope you have a good summer.

    @RandyCantrell Oh, yeah. We finish before Memorial Day. As A.P., I start my 3-weeks off tomorrow. Ready for a little relaxation.
