Reality Distortion field

Ok I have to admit that I was inspired by or influenced by today’s Apple press conference to write this blog post. For those who don’t know I am a serious Mac head. The term “Reality Distortion Field” is used to describe being in the presence of Apple’s CEO Steve Jobs. Because of his charisma or his strong belief’s people look at things differently after being in his presence.

However the reason that I am using that term is to ask you if you are suffering from a distorted reality in some area of your life? For example I told my wife for years that I was 6 foot, I knew I wasn’t and she believed me until one day she decided to measure me and found out for herself that I am only 5 “11. So it makes me feel better to say that I am 6 foot but it just does not happen to be true. Another example is I thought I was in pretty decent physical condition, I have been working out for years, and just recently I started doing the Crossfit workout. Talk about a serious blow to my ego and a major reality adjustment after I could not complete several of the workouts as prescribed.

For the sake of this article let’s turn the focus on your financial reality. Do you tell yourself and or others that you are good with money? When in-fact you spend more than you make, are behind in your bills, and spend money to appear more successful than you actually are. If this is the case you may be in the need of a serious reality adjustment. Before it gets to the point of an intervention, now may be the best time to sit down and do a thorough analysis of your financial situation. You should sit down and figure out what your monthly expenses really are, and also get in-touch with your actual monthly income. Sometimes this practice alone with help people get an understanding of their financial reality.
