Obstacle Course: Honesty

I'm sure everyone, or nearly everyone, has heard that "honesty is the best policy", but how honest are we with ourselves? If we can't be honest with ourselves, how can we consider ourselves honest people? It can be hard. The truth can be painful at times, but lies are so much more destructive.

Lies feed off each other. The devour everything just like fire. Some flames are good: The flames of passion, flames of truth, getting a fire lit under you (motivation)... But the devestation of lies has a life of its own. One that we must smother at the beinging.

Are we REALLY doing our best? 

Are we REALLY making it our priority? 

Do we REALLY believe? 

Are we REALLY showing it or just telling lies to ourself?

When lies flare up within us, we need to get past them and stop feeding them... they will die off without food. We can fight them down by building up around them... look for the positive and SEE it.

YES you:

  • can learn something new
  • can change your stars
  • can be successful
  • can develop new & improved habits
  • can break bad habits
  • can overcome your obstacles
  • are worth it
  • are human
  • are awesome

There is always someone out there that is worse off than you... and happy in their life. How good or bad your life is isn't about what you have or don't have, what you can do or can't, what you've lost or gained... It's about how you CHOOSE to LOOK at it.

It's about your perspective on life. 

So, stop telling lies. Be honest with yourself. If you're not really doing all you can, then why not?
If you're not making your goals a priority - why not? Why do you have these goals if not to reach them? Why do you keep letting things get in the way and tear you down? If you want it, you have to work and go get it!
