Telling lies can be a slippery slope. Once you start, it’s hard to stop and it becomes harder and harder to tell the truth. Here are six lies we need to stop telling ourselves:

#1. You don’t have enough time.
It is that you are not doing it because you lack time.
In reality, you’re not doing it because you don’t want to.
There is always a way to organize your life around whatever you want to do.
If you truly want to do something, you will find a way to do it.
#2. You start blaming others.
Blaming others for your mistakes or for what isn’t working for you.
It’s about accepting that we aren’t perfect and that we make mistakes from time to time.
It will assist you in maintaining healthy relationships by expecting less and doing more.
#3. It’s impossible
When you say something is impossible, you are essentially denying your own capabilities from the start: You decide that you are not capable.
Sometimes we do this because we are afraid to challenge our beliefs and step outside of our comfort zone.
If we want to make things work, we have the ability: we just need to go out there and figure it out.
#4. You believe that others “can’t understand.”
You sometimes use this belief as an escape to avoid hearing what you really need to hear.
You’re never truly alone: many others have overcome similar challenges.
People genuinely care. They aren’t robots; they just aren’t always available.
#5. You rely on the adage “easier said than done.”
It’s just a formality we use to avoid difficult situations because we don’t know the solution yet.
It has an effect on our mindset.
It causes us to focus on the sensation of effort rather than using our creativity to devise a solution.
That is why it should be used with caution.
#6. You don’t know “how.”
Nobody who has ever started anything has ever had all the answers in advance.
It’s unrealistic to expect this unless you live the same day twice.
It is sufficient, to begin with, if you desire something. Not knowing how is a lame excuse for avoiding the effort.
If you truly want something, you will always find a way.
The conclusion is about how to stop telling ourselves lies. We should not let our past define us. It is important to set goals for ourselves and try our best to achieve them. For the future, we need to start thinking of what we want it to look like and work towards it.
