How To Find The Gracious In Gratitude
For some people, the holidays are a joyous occasion. But for others this time of year is very painful, stressful or just plain tiring. It’s likely you’re planning on spending […]

Today I want to ask, what do you do when feeling down? Life doesn’t always run smoothly and at some point in your life you will probably become overwhelmed, depressed or even angry despite your best efforts.
Many people turn to a countless number of addictions like shopping (yeah, it acts just like any other addiction people), drinking, smoking and sex. And we all know those end in disaster!
However, in today’s society there is another quick fix. For a lot of life’s problems, there is now a pill for that. 1 out of 10 Americans age 12 and older are taking antidepressants. However, less than 20% of those people seek professional therapy or counseling.
Attract, Create, and Build Trusting, Strong Relationships
Have you noticed that sometimes what you need in life just doesn’t fall into place? Perhaps you’ve found yourself in one terrible relationship after another or you seem unable to shake off bad luck in your job, career, business and relationships. People skills are just that… a skill! You have to learn and perfect them just like any other skill. Click to read more.
Oh, you’re stressed out? Here’s a pill. Oh you’re depressed, here you go. We turn to drugs as an easy fix for the issues that we don’t want to deal with!
Antidepressants, valium and ADHD medications are now being called the emotional equivalent of plastic surgery. Only the side effects are worse for you in the long run. Here’s why.
And it isn’t just about the listed side effects on your pill bottle (although some of those are equally as disturbing). The big problem is that quick fixing your life with pills is not a true solution. It doesn’t teach you anything. It doesn’t help you work through the problem.
In fact in most cases it just postpones the root of your issues! You are just treating the symptoms of a much bigger problem. Medications will numb you out and make you blind to problems that in reality, you just need to face!
When you are numbed out on medications it affects your relationships, your ability to make decisions and your desire to succeed. You might think the mental break is nice, until the next thing you know a decade has gone by and you’re still “fighting” anxiety.
A man without a vision will perish. These pills steal your vision!
I’m not saying all prescriptions are bad, but NYU studies show that 1 in 4 cases of depression are misdiagnosed. Maybe I just need to be the one to prescribe a different medication for you. Try one these before running off for your easy fix:
Listen, I am for you. And I am for your success! And I truly believe that all of the insta-prescriptions doctors hand out like candy will not only keep you from success. Wouldn’t it be great if you weren’t another statistic? Wouldn’t it be even better if you could stop a loved one or your own child from becoming one of those statistics?
Hey, let’s connect on the radio this Sunday for The Dani Johnson Show at 9 pm ET/8 pm CT. I’m so excited to talk to you and this wonderful community of people!
In great faith,
