I would like to dedicate Battlefield of the Mind to my oldest son, David. I know your personality is enough like mine that you have had your share of struggles in the mental realm. I see you growing continually, and I know that you are experiencing the victories that come from the renewal of the mind. I love you, David, and I am proud of you. Keep pressing on!

Part 3: Wilderness Mentalities Introduction
16 My future is determined by my past and my present.
17 Someone do it for me; I don't want to take the responsibility.
18 Please make everything easy; I cant take it if things are too hard!
19 I can't help it; I'm just addicted to grumbling, faultfinding and complaining.
20 Don't make me wait for anything; I deserve everything immediately.
21 My behavior may be wrong, but it's not my fault.
22 My life is so miserable; I feel sorry for myself because my life is so wretched!
23 I don't deserve God's blessings because I am not worthy.
24 Why shouldn't I be jealous and envious when everybody else is better off than I am?219 25 I'm going to do it my way, or not at all
