Fantasy: Tonight I’m going to go to bed early and get 8 hours of blissful, restful sleep.
Reality: I have a growing problem with insomnia that is getting worse rather than better. I now associate my bed with being awake. I need to make some serious changes to get better rest.
Fantasy: Starting tomorrow I’m going to be incredibly focused and get a lot done.
Reality: Every day I spend a lot of time driving around and when I’m not doing that I don’t have a good habit of getting focused.
I could go on and on but it’s a boring story already and the point has been made. Fantasy is fantasy. Reality is reality. I actually live in reality so I’d better deal with that.
By the way:
Fantasy: You read this and change your life completely because once you realize that you live as if your fantasy is reality, you jettison the fantasy and become incredibly focused, productive and happy.
