Our favorite psychologist, Dr. Phil McGraw speaks a truth that is too commonly true for a lot of people. He writes, “Common sense might suggest that one of the easiest steps in getting what you want from life is to “place your order”: to stand up and declare what it is that you desire. Nothing could be further from the truth. I’m convinced that if the mythical genie ever did pop out of the bottle and say, “Tell me your wish,” most people would stutter, stammer, and be in terrible conflict about what to ask for.”
