No doubt, this is a challenge for me, but it is something I face on a regular basis.

We can find ourselves denying the mess exists. That’s procrastination and will not resolve any issues. Ignoring it may even exacerbate the problem.

It may be difficult to embrace the current situation – as bad as it may be – but there is no way to move beyond it without acceptance. We must acknowledge there is something that needs to change.

Once we admit there must be change, we can transcend the unwanted result and move into a suitable solution. This may sound simplistic, however many of us can go for long periods of time in denial about the results we have been receiving unaware of how to change them.
