3 Most Dangerous Words, I and II

If there are 3 Most Dangerous Words in Life they are, "Is This It?"

People start asking, "Is This It?" and if they don't like the answer their minds start going in one of two directions, up or down. They decide it's time to make some changes or they decide that if this is all there is they might as well quit.

If this is it which direction are you going?

If there is a second group of 3 Most Dangerous Words they are, "What About Me?"

Lots of folks spend most of their lives focusing on others. Whether they do it to truly help others (see Mother Theresa) or because they see themselves as martyrs (that's hoo...I'm not important, I'll just spend my life on you hoping there'll be a day you'll be indebted to me for my sacrifice) there may come a day when they ask, "What About Me?"

Usually that doesn't happen with the Mother Theresas of the world because they are truly and unselfishly giving their lives for others.

But, for the rest of us, some folks finally wake up and one day start realizing they've given, given, given and now it's time to get something back.

When folks start asking, "What About Me?" you'd better watch out. A bill has come due.
