Lies are lived and experiences which create guilt and confusion prolongs the deep unhappiness. The pretense is lived without solving any problem.

The agenda will give all the chance to believe that the plan will work. Creating goals give both the desire to solve their issues. The end goals is the objective. Know that each step brings the solution nearer to manifestation. Having a desire and a plan give focus and attention to succeed.
