We lie to ourselves for many reasons. First, it hurts to tell ourselves the truth about ourselves. It really hurts. To think that we are in control of our lives and we are not making the most of it. That can be a painful admission. That can be a miserable awakening. That can devastate us if we allow that admission to render us helpless. Yet, the good thing about admitting the truth about ourselves to ourselves is that is the first step in correcting what needs to be corrected.
Do me a favor this week. Stand in front of the mirror and admit ONE THING about yourself that you have been telling a fib about. Speak that ONE TRUTH that has been sitting at your side for many years. You know what you have been lying about. You know what you want to admit to yourself. Are you lazy? Are you a procrastinator? Are you blaming childhood woes? Are you blaming adult woes? What is the lie that you have been telling yourself for years that is yearning to surface. STAND IN FRONT OF THE MIRROR and ADMIT IT! Once you admit it, then BEGIN TO CORRECT IT. It only lingers because its begging for your attention.
You know you want more from yourself. You know you deserve more for yourself. You know the table has been set from birth for you to receive all the riches that the universe has to offer. Why then do you lie to yourself as to the reason you have not claimed what is rightfully yours.
Until the next time,
