The Devils Tool Box - Introduction






Back in January, my new year's resolution this year was to raise the standard.

I've pretty much been MIA since then, and that's because I have been working really hard to turn my life around. 

I felt like my life really needed an upgrade. 

Life was okay, but I was fed up of never having time, feeling down and just not being as organised and productive as I would like. Seven months into 2013 and I'm still not where I want to be, but I am content with starting right where I am at and taking the next step to continue to raise the standard. I've learnt a lot this year. I made a point of really applying myself to learn as much as I could in order to help with the raising the standard thing. By far the most important lesson I have learnt this year is that that other guy, Satan, the devil, the force of evil, or whatever else you want to call it..exists and he loves to play games! I personally choose to call him the devil, and so that is what I am going to refer to him as for the duration of these posts. 

I'm not going to preach here, you may see the odd scripture in this series, but even if you are not of a religious background, you know that evil exists. That age-old battle between good and evil is everywhere. Films, games, books, music..you name it, it's there.  In the next few posts, I am going to unpack some of the more subtle tools that the devil likes to use. 

When it comes to raising the standard, if you don't know what is causing your standards to be so low, to begin with, then your never going to have a shot at raising the bar on your life. 

This one is about personal growth. 

In the next few posts, I will share what I have learnt about each of the tools I talk about and give credit to those that have taught me those things but also share some pearls of wisdom that have come purely from life experience. 

They say that the best way to learn something is to teach it and so I'm going to put myself out there a bit and actually set this whole series up as teaching. One of the things in the raise the standard new years' resolution was to build confidence and try new things..so here goes. I'm not even sure I can do this but I will give it a shot.

The first teaching will start on a slightly lighter subject, but something that still needs to be addressed if you are serious about personal growth. Acceptance.
