Have you experienced the thought,  "How did I go wrong?"  The idea in this question is the realization that everything is not as I planned or thought or dreamt it would be; and, I don't like were I am.  

Here's a hint concerning, in part, how it happened; it comes from Machiavelli who, around 1513 indicated that the most difficult thing to do is to attempt to get people to change their established systems and beliefs.  He was right and we will look at why this is to; you'll probably agree as well.  

Resistance to moving forward is a common characteristic in most people; it results in discomfort, even pain.  It comes from living within the confines and controls of established belief systems that have worked well enough that we are reluctant to change because we don't hurt enough and/or we are concerned about what a new belief system would mean to us or where it would lead us.  

We love comfort but Rick Warren (The Purpose-Driven Life) tells us "God's ultimate goal for your life on earth is not comfort, but character development."  That even sounds like work...and pain.  There are coutless examples in history of people who simply tell us their stories of personal struggle leading to a level of meaning, purpose, and victory they never experienced before.  

My invitation to you today is to join me as we look at "How Did We (I) Go Wrong?"  Being able to effectively answer this question opens the door to receiving direction in how we can reverse the very flow of our lives thus "Closing The Integrity Gap."
