This is a rough post: A free reign brainstorm of the things that utterly destroy our dreams. Too often I will reflect on say the last year or last five years and wonder why I did not achieve what I wanted. It always comes back to at least one if not several of these. Sometimes its good to know the enemy and deal with it accordingly. And sometimes the enemy is none other than ourselves.

Take courage. Be brave. Fight them because you (we) can. ;-)
