What are not being honest about in your life?
It’s time. You have been avoiding it for some time now and it’s just not healthy. You need to stop pretending and telling yourself what they say matters to you. Those so called friends, even your family, who tell you that you can’t do something are wrong.
They tell you that your dreams are childish and you need to grow up. They tell you that you can’t get into that school. You can’t interview for that job. After hearing for the hundredth time you start to believe in it.
You start to doubt yourself and your ability to become great at something. They are probably saying something to that effect right now. And if they are, get up and walk out. Go somewhere quiet and relax.
Listen, negativity breeds negativity. You will defeat yourself if you are always being negative and not believing in yourself.
So it’s time to be completely honest with yourself. You are enough. You are worthy of exceptional greatness. You are already a success and will achieve even more greatness as time passes.
See, you have to be honest with yourself and know that you have failed in the past but that doesn’t define you. You are not a failure. You learned from your mistakes and have moved on. You are better because of the trials and tribulations.
It’s time to be honest with yourself and remove some people out of your life. Completely. Those people who say they are your friends but talk down to you. The ones who only want to talk about themselves but never lend a listening ear. The ones whom you only hear from when they need something.
Now I know exactly what they are going to say. Things like they are always busy. They have a family. And all of that is true, but everyone has the same 24 hours each day. Why waste yours waiting on them when they wouldn’t do the same for you?
I had to remove a significant number of people out of my life. It wasn’t that it was because I had changed or anything. It simply was because I was on a different path. I know some people remove me from theirs and that is completely ok.
Because I know that I served my purpose in their life and they moved on. And I am completely fine with that. Because when you decide what you want in life a lot of times people that you once knew to align with the new goals.
The people who are on their own pursuit of greatness know this. They don’t get hurt or let their feelings get in the middle of it. They know that priorities change and they change with them.
So this week take the few minutes each morning and be completely honest with yourself. Be honest enough to know your worth and don’t let anything or anyone get in the way of that. Surround yourself with the right people and go after what you want. Being honest will get you there.
