- I want you to close your eyes and begin to think of the word peaceful. Name the first place that comes to your mind.
- What does it look like there?
- Who is there?
- Are you doing anything? (reading, singing, napping, praising God, playing guitar?)
- Where is this place around you?

I got an email today with some motivational quotes and thought they deserved to be shared. I have added my own thoughts on these quotes and hope that you can take something in from each of them today and apply it to good mental health.

Often times when we go to job interviews we get asked this question that is very hard to answer. It is hard to answer because if we answer it truthfully, we may not get offered the job. However, if we lie about it, most likely if they hire us they will soon find out we were dishonest. The question is "What is your biggest weakness?"

A pervasive pattern of preoccupation with orderliness, perfectionism, and mental and interpersonal control, at the expense of flexibility, openness, and efficiency, beginning by early adulthood and present in a variety of contexts, as indicated by four (or more) of the following:
1) is preoccupied with details, rules, lists, order, organization, or schedules to the extent that the major point of the activity is lost.
2) shows perfectionism that interferes with task completion (e.g., is unable to complete a project because his or her own overly strict standards are not met)
3) is excessively devoted to work and productivity to the exclusion of leisure activities and friendships (not accounted for by obvious economic necessity)
4) is overconscientious, scrupulous, and inflexible about matters of morality, ethics, or values (not accounted for by cultural or religious identification)
5) is unable to discard worn-out or worthless objects even when they have no sentimental value
6) is reluctant to delegate tasks or to work with others unless they submit to exactly his or her way of doing things
7) adopts a miserly spending style toward both self and others; money is viewed as something to be hoarded for future catastrophes
8) shows rigidity and stubbornness
People often confuse the two of these and as you can see...they are VERY different!
Here is a video to explain the differences more thoroughly to supplement the reading.
