Just because you don’t like what I am saying does not make it false. I drop some hard truth. If you don’t want to deal, fine. Go bury you head in the sand and keep fighting to accept your mediocrity.
People change facts to fit their narrative. Changing facts is lying. You can lie to people all you want feel a bit guilty, but the lying to yourself to justify your lacking is truly sad. How much of your day do you twist to make it ok to be less? Seriously, look at your life and be honest. How much of your life is a lie designed to make you feel better about the bad things you do and the good things you know you should but don’t?
We are all faced with our own egos. It is hard to be honest when we are lacking. It is easy to ride the wave when the energy is high and good stuff is happening. Who you really are is not the high tide guy but the low tide person that is struggling. How much your ego impacts is the deciding factor in most of our success. We can own our failures and move forward better for it or we can lose precious time fighting to be right when we know we are wrong to massage our fragile ego.
Forget your feelings and forget your ego, check all of that at the door and get down to reality. If you are messing up, accept it and move forward. If you don’t make the same mistake twice, you won. If you don’t do anything else because you are fighting to justify the last wrong move, you are a total failure at life.
Many of us have defined ourselves before we have proven what we really are. We stick ourselves and others in boxes clearly labeled. Once this has been done, we fight to justify the label. We manipulate things so we are not wrong and the label sticks. This is not freedom or real. This is fragile egos controlling actions and making a big mess of life.
Information evolves and people change. This is just part of our personal evolution. It is ok to figure out that you were wrong as much as it is to figure out how right you are. If you have a big ego, you won’t allow yourself to be wrong or you will drive people away due to how you handle being right. You have to let go of that ego and all that pride. Allow yourself to be who you are in the moment and stop fighting to be who you once were. There is no golden time besides right now. Now is the most evolved and precious you. Be a person in the moment without the distraction of ego. Trust me, it is a much happier place than the alternatives.
