Life goals can become problems rather than solutions when driven by insecurity. Simply put, any goal that is driven by insecurity is all about trying to control some aspect of life--not fulfillment. Although there can be an extensive array of misguided goals, I've come to recognize three major culprits:
1. Money--the accumulation of money, which is equated with security and happiness
2. Power--the quest for power and potency, which is equated with invulnerability
3. Status--the compulsion for status, which is equated with intimacy, being loved, admired and respected
Starting today, ask yourself, "What are my goals?" Then take it a step further and ask, "Why?"
