We know that perceptions influence attitudes and your attitudes have a direct influence on your behaviors. Once behavior starts, the outcomes of those behaviors influence your attitude which in the end drives your overall perceptions. If perceptions are risks and behaviors are actions - then attitudes (your desire) serve as the direct connector between the risks you perceive and actions you take to address those risks. You see, attitude truly is everything!
I am a case book extravert. Very outgoing, you can read my thoughts on my face, and I enjoy being around a large group of people. I am intuitive, meaning I like to develop new approaches and when you say something will read between the lines. I am also a feeler, focusing on a process and looking more for harmony than candid truth. Finally, I am a judger - appearing to be very task oriented, focused and organized in my thought processes. Using the Myers-Briggs Personality Assessment, I am as ENFJ as it gets.

"When life does get tough and the crisis is undeniably at hand, when we must, in an instant, look inward for strength of character to see us through, we will find nothing inside ourselves that we have not already put there."

There was a little boy who raised cows. He would herd them up a mountain every day and at the end of the day come back, tie them up, and leave them over night. One day, as he was tying up the cows he noticed he did not have a rope for one of the cows. The boy did not have any more rope and was concerned the cow would walk away during the night.
