I agree with you 100%. But what kinds of things do you do/go on in your mind when it's more than just you??

Sometimes I picture myself on the front lines in Iraq and imagine what it would be like to be one of the brave souls dodging bullets, missiles, and such and remember that they are fighting for me and my freedoms.

Then I try to remember that no matter what happens, it is a learning experience.

It's getting over the voices in your head (maybe I'm schitzo??) that is one of the hardest parts.

What do others do to get through the trials and tribulation and the fear of losing everything, not eating, etc...???

Me personally, my faith in God.

Also, perspective. Anytime I think things aren't going right, I think about the soldiers who are putting their life on the line so I (and others) can pursue the "American dream".

I can't imagine suiting up in heavy equipment in 110 degree heat. I can barely take the heat in t-shirt and shorts. Those guys are warriors.

In my own research for my book, the common thread in many of these rags-to-riches stories is necessity ... rent money is due, no job, bill collectors calling, diet of Ramen Pride noodles ... necessity also kicked my a$$ into gear.
