Which lies do you chose to believe?
I don’t normally talk politics, and I’m not going to start now. But I am going to use the current citation to start out this point of the lies you chose to believe.
Watch and listen to comments on social media, from close friends and family and on the “news” about the current presidential campaigns it just boggles my mind how obvious it is that people chose what lies they want to believe.
Just a few cases in point; Trump said a few things on the first presidential debate and then completely denied saying what he said just an hour later. Hillary was on video saying how she felt about same sex marriage, and other world issues and now denies saying any of that.
I can continue listing many similar examples about Trump, Hilary, the Obamas, Bernie Sanders, and many others. But that’s not the point of this post.
The point is, there are so many emotions involved that most people are not even paying attention to the lies they are choosing to believe.
Let’s get a bit more personal now. When I was a younger man, much younger than I am now, I was told I would not amount to much of anything. I was not great in school. But I did love to learn. I just had no desire to learn what I was being taught in school.
Here’s the thing, I never believed the lies the teachers told me. I new I had greatness within me. I knew I was going to go on to create amazing experiences in the world. I knew I was going to travel the world. I have done all of that and I’m still growing, learning, and creating.
Here’s a few I’ve been told, heard or even said to myself and others at some point in my life…
Lies I refuse to believe:
We can’t afford that.
You’re not going to amount to shit in life.
You’re never going to get a job that pays you over $100,00 a year.
You’re not a good speaker.
You have a terrible recording voice. (this is a lie I told myself for a long time)
Your son has ADHD and should be on medication.
You have 6 weeks to live.
Starting your own business is easy.
Residual income does not exist.
Money is the root of all evil.
You can not have six pack abs again at 48.
You need another job.
Having more than you need is greedy.
Just work hard and you will succeed.
Go to school, get great grades, get a good job and save for retirement.

The bottom line is, you can change your the lies you tell yourself. You can reprogram your brain by changing your thoughts. You can change the direction of your life by changing your habits.
The difference between the wealthy and the poor is their habits.
You can live your life of Abundance. Make the decision, write it down (every day) then take action. A great coach or mentor can do wonders as well.
