Sometimes what appears to be good in your life is really killing you. If you are to break the pattern, it is time you were honest with yourself and confronted reality. Reality is what the world really is. Fantasy is what you would like the world to be. In order to obtain success, you must accept what your world is and work toward what you would like it to be. It’s that simple.
Unfortunately, many people choose to live in a fantasy world of dreams and illusion. Subconsciously, they would prefer to live in a fairy-tale world and are frustrated when life doesn’t behave in accordance with these preconceptions. These people do not want to hear the truth. They would cover their ears and insist upon continuing in ignorance. They are victims of the virus of fairy-tale thinking.
It is said that ignorance is bliss, but ignorance of the truth often means a lifetime of hardship and heartbreak. Not everyone is ready, or desires, to face reality. They believe it is easier to sleep in ignorance than it is to wake to knowledge. Knowledge demands action. Therefore, many people choose to live in deception and may never wake to realize the richness of the life that they have unwittingly lost.
