How To Train Your Dragon
Throughout life there are times when you feel weighed down by problems. Sometimes the weight of the problems you face is brought on by a lack of knowledge in the area, as in you would fix it but you do not know how. Without acquiring the correct knowledge or finding someone who does have the knowledge to put things right or offer a solution you can often find yourself buried in a problem. This is when the problem begins to drag on. It drags you down and it drags you off your purpose and it drags you out of the other areas of your life that need your attention. Drag ons definitely do not contribute to the quality of your life.
There is the Dragon Your Finances and a Dragon Your Time. There is a Dragon Your Energy and a Dragon Your Mind. I have a Dragon My Attention and a Dragon My Health. I think you are getting the picture that you have a dragon or three, yourself.
You don't believe in dragons? Well, I know they are real for sure and I’ll tell you how I do. Real as real can be they are. I know because I have some dragons around me and I’m betting that you do too. They fly about the place without regard for day or night. Some breathe more smoke than fire and some give me quite a fright. Dragons differ from witches; although witches can be scary; a run in with either of them can be pretty (dare I say it?) “gosh darn” hairy.
Drag On Too Long
Dragons often stink up the place because they hang about for such a while. And you’ll know when a dragon has got you because you will forget to smile. They thrive in an environment of ignorance and they tend to come out in droves (or is that flocks? – they do fly you know). Too often are the times I’ve found myself in a spot where dragons love to go. So if you find yourself in a situation that continues to dragon too long know that it only there because you are doing something wrong.
And now I’ll leave the verse behind and tell you want to do, in case you find yourself like me with a dragon or two.
Symptoms Of A Drag On
And now I’ll leave the verse behind and tell you that you know you are dealing with a drag on when:
- You cannot stop talking or thinking about the same person or the same subject.
- You do not feel good mentally, emotionally, physically or spiritually or any combination thereof.
- You view all of life is a problem.
- You are gaining nothing, getting nowhere and treading water.
- Your facial expressions look like you ate something nasty.
- You do not find anything funny and you have to stand on your head to turn your frown upside down in order to get anything remotely resembling a smile on your face.
- You feel hopeless, you consider yourself a victim (dragons are really good at creating you as a victim) and you are negative towards life in general.
- You couldn’t have an “aha” moment if your life depended on it and everything and everyone is a problem.

Drag On Slaying
The thing with dragons is that in trying to rid yourself of them or wrestle with them or slay them or douse them,run from them, hide from them, or plead or bargain with them or any other twisting, bending method of resisting them, they tend to get much more ferocious. They are like tar babies only much, much bigger and they are scaly and they have very foul breath. In dealing with a dragon it really comes down to recognizing who you are and what is within your control and what is not. Then you take what you can control and control it! You can take control of your own presence. You can take control of your own emotions,your own attitudes, your own intentions, your own actions, your own abilities and your own knowledge.
The best way to slay a drag on is to arm yourself with knowledge. Given that dragons are created out of ignorance it stands to reason that the opposite will lay them to rest. If, for example the Dragon Your Finances has been going on for far too long then what you must do is start by acquiring an education in the subject of finance. With that knowledge you can get into action and with that action the dragon will cease to exist. Learn how to invest yourself, your time, your energy, your mind and anything else that is under the influence of a drag on. It does take courage to look a dragon square in the eye(er' I) I'm not going to lie, but I'm also thinking, it's worth it! So who is up for a little drag on slaying?
