Self Deception

“We will find out what we need to do when we quit lying to ourselves and see the situation for what it is.

Many people use self-deception and denial as a way of avoiding having to deal with issues about themselves, their circumstances or people around them. What they often do not realise is that this locks them in to a cycle of self-sabotage and poor self esteem that blocks their ability to move forward in their lives and prevents them living their dreams.

You know if you have been lying to yourself. You know what you believe and whether or not you are honoring it. You know what your values are and whether or not you are upholding them.

Only you can decide to get brave, stop lying, and start being the person you know you want to be – in thoughts, words, and actions.

Being honest does not mean that you have to confront all of your demons at once, but it does require that you make an honest start at identifying where your issues lie and accepting what they are. By identifying them you are more able to see past them and move on to be your genuine self.

“How would your life be different if…You approached all relationships with authenticity and honesty? Let today be the day…You dedicate yourself to building relationships on the solid foundation of truth and authenticity.”
Steve Maraboli
