Obstacle 81: Pretentiousness

“Always keep your head up, but keep your nose at a friendly  level.” ~Max L. Forman

Pretentiousness presents falsities.  When the foundation of your existence is a facade, upkeep is hard. It takes money and extra-ordinary effort to maintain a panned deception. To succeed, spend more time focusing on your plans and goals.

Pretension is a protective cover; it often hides fear, conceit and the need to control. Thus, it takes more and more to satisfy the deepening well of these insecurities.  Dr. Alan Downs calls this spiraling syndrome “chronic discontent.”

Cultivate intimacy, rather than pretentiousness.  Let your guard down, be seen and known for who you truly are. No legacy is as rich.

Get real. Shed the mess, build your success.

Be yourself.

Opportunity Step: Ask yourself, Who is the real me? today.
