“Above all, don’t lie to yourself.”
A week or so ago, I used this quote as my daily message, “We judge other people by their actions, but we judge ourselves by our intentions.” Craig Groeschel
I haven’t been able to stop thinking about how true this is and how it applies to almost every aspect of life. When we judge ourselves by our intentions, we are lying and positioning information to make us feel better about something we did, or didn’t, do. In essence, we are creating an escape hatch for accountability. But, unfortunately, that’s not going to get us to where we want to be in life unless an inauthentic, excuse-driven victim’s life is somehow in your goals and dreams.
Where are you lying to yourself today? What truths do you know but are unwilling to face and admit? The good news is that by embracing the truth, you can form an honest and realistic action plan to create positive change.
Do you intend to believe your lies forever?
