“The first step to success is to stop lying to yourself”
I would dare say that the vast majority of people would consider themselves honest, ethical people. In fact, I was in a room of 500 top producing agents when the speaker asked who in the room felt they had integrity. 98% of the room raised their hands. When asked to lower their hand if they had ever lied to themselves or made a promise, resolution or goal and not kept it all the hands went down.
Our quest for success starts within and to truly address the issues that are getting in the way of our achieving our wildest and most audacious dreams we need to have an honest look at ourselves. Our justification, excuses and reasons are all hindering us. The first step to our success is to face the truth about our situation.
I am not talking about condemnation, guilt or shame – none of those have a place in helping us. But honesty and truth, yes, honesty and truth will allow us to see things for what they are. Once problems and issues are identified our mind has a way of seeking answers that were previously hidden from us. I’m not talking in a meta-physical way, but in a very practical way. Our mind blocks millions of things a day from our 5 senses that it doesn’t feel are relevant. When we face our issues, the possible solutions become relevant and our mind will allow us to see and hear them.
If we want to achieve success, whether it is an increase in income, growth in business or overall life balance, we must first face the truth of where we are and the very real disparity of where we want to go and seek the solutions that will allow us to bridge the gap.
Remember, The first step to success is to stop lying to yourself.
