Ten Lies

9 Feb

We make endless decisions as we go through our lives. When we have to answer for something or explain a situation, we always have the choice of either being honest or making up a story. If the situation is difficult or we’ve done something that has caused problems, we may be tempted to lie about what actually happened.  Of course, we can do anything we like, and if we want to fabricate a tale that takes us out of the equation, we can certainly come up with something. Telling a lie may seem like it’ll clear the way ahead, but there’s always a catch. Nothing ever stands alone and remains untouched for long. Before we know it, we may have to tell another lie to explain circumstances that arise from the tale we told originally. In the end, we may have to tell ten lies to cover up for the first one. We’re all creative but it may become difficult to keep tangling the web without everything falling apart. It’s hard to remember made up stories over time, and we may find ourselves completely twisted up trying to keep our cover. No matter what’s happened or what we’ve done, the best and easiest way forward is to tell the complete truth. We might be embarrassed, but we can get over that. We might get in trouble, but we’re accountable for everything we do, and that’s fair. When we’re honest in all our dealings, even when it’s hard, we will gain the respect of those around us. They will understand they can trust us, and that may pave the road ahead to the goals we seek. We are intelligent and can make excellent decisions. By being wise and thoughtful before we act, and choosing the best path forward, we will achieve great success and satisfaction.

White lies are stories we tell because the truth may be difficult to navigate. Someone may ask us a question about their appearance, and if we’re concerned that being completely honest may hurt their feelings, we may choose to embellish the truth a little. Getting into the habit of telling little white lies that don’t seem to hurt anyone might be okay, but once we take one step away from the truth, it’s easy to take another step further. Instead of saying things that aren’t really true, we can find a way to be truthful without causing an issue.  

Some people are very ambitious and will do anything to get what they want. They may have no problem telling lies to get ahead. They are willing to cheat if necessary to go around anyone in their way. If we must deal with them, we will never know if anything they say is true or not. Instead of taking their word for anything, we can do our own research and figure out what’s real. Once we understand the true story and what is actually happening, we can decide how we want to proceed to get to our goal. We have all the wisdom we need to choose the best roads ahead. By being honest and careful, there isn’t anything we can’t accomplish.

Today if you’re in a difficult situation and it would be easy to lie to get out of it, think about the person you most want to be. Every decision brings a result, and by choosing well we will achieve what we want the most. Trust yourself and be confident. There isn’t anything you can’t manage, and every goal is possible. You are smarter and braver than you think you are. Step forward with clarity and you will succeed.

Just This Once

20 Dec

Our lives are a reflection of our decisions. Every choice we make changes something and takes us somewhere. If we’re mindful and think about all the ramifications of everything we choose, we have a better shot of getting what we want and going where we want to go, but life is busy and can be hectic. We may make decisions on the fly simply because we don’t have time to stop and think. Sometimes that works out okay, but if we don’t think before we jump, things may not go the way we hope. Everyone wants a happy life and we all have things we want to achieve. We may face a time when we can get something quicker if we manipulate the situation dishonestly. Most of us want to be honest in all our dealings, but life is complex, and there are all kinds of people around us making all kinds of decisions. If they get in our way and we just can’t wait any longer, we may decide, just this once, to step away from our personal standards and do whatever is necessary to get what we want. We may bend the truth, tell a lie, deceive someone or use smoke and mirrors to make things seem different than they are. We’re in control of our lives and can do anything we like at any time. We can make any choices we want, but we can’t change the results of those choices. If we start a fire, something is going to burn. There is no way out. We know what we want, and must decide if we want it badly enough to sacrifice our integrity and honesty to get it. If that’s the case, we can go down that road and just crash ahead until we get to the goal. But every gain has a price and we may discover the price is higher than we imagined. By being thoughtful and wise, and taking the time to see where we’re headed before we step forward, we can make excellent choices that will bring us happiness and satisfaction. If we can’t get the goal today, we can patiently continue forward until we do. Every goal is possible, and every success awaits. With clarity and focus, we will reach them all.

Some people don’t care what it takes to win. They will do anything, and break every rule just to get to the prize. They are ruthless and the feelings of others mean nothing. If they are in a position of power, they may cause a lot of destruction as they push ahead. Once they reach the goal, they are happy but that happiness is often fleeting, because there will always be something bigger, something shinier, something more prestigious just ahead. Getting to each goal is important, but how we get there defines who we are. We can be relentless and merciless, and burn every bridge as we move forward, but that will never bring lasting happiness or peace.

Nobody is destined to remain the same forever. Change is constant, and we can change any behavior traits we want. If we’ve been unwise in the past, and have broken relationships because of our choices, it will take work and diligence to win back the trust of others. Change takes works and continual determination, but when we’re ready we can do anything. There is greatness in us all, and we can reclaim our nobility and wisdom at any time. Our lives are ours to design and nothing is out of reach. We really can have the lives we want the most by being mindful, patient and focused on the road ahead.

Today if there’s a chance you’ll win but only if you cheat, before you begin, stop and think about who you really want to be. You are defined by the choices you make so decide what you want the most, and then step forward. There is greatness in you and you have so much to offer. Show us your best and bring light to those around you. You really are amazing and worth more than you can imagine. Choose wisely and be confident. Every success is waiting and every dream is possible. Be honest and determined, and you will reach them all.

Wasn’t Me

24 May

We’ll make millions of decisions as we go through our lives, and will succeed at many things. We are intelligent and capable, and generally if we want to do something, we can make it happen. But life is full of complications, unforeseen developments and lots of drama and intrigue we may not see at the beginning. When problems arise and things go south, if we’re involved but intent on looking good, we may say, “It wasn’t me.” Despite our involvement, we may deny having anything to do with what’s happened, and try to walk away unscathed. It nobody looks too closely, we might get away with that, but truth is powerful, and in time it’s likely we’ll be found out. Denying what’s real is just a smokescreen that only delays the inevitable reveal. Unless we stay on the move and constantly change our situation, which is very hard to accomplish, eventually our dishonesty will be exposed. Nobody is perfect and we’re all going to falter at some point. It’s one thing to make a big mistake, and quite another to make it and then lie about it. Others will forgive errors in judgement even if it impacts them personally, but it’s harder to forgive lies used to cover up the mistake after it’s happened. When things go wrong and everything blows up, if we’re involved, we can step forward and honestly accept our part in the issue. We can then do whatever is needed to correct the situation and regain our footing. Every success is there for us, and there isn’t a problem or detour that can keep us from achieving it. By being truthful and open, we can step forward with clarity and confidence, sure we will reach every destination.

We all want to look as good as possible. We want to impress those we admire, make changes that improve our lives, and do things that will move us forward. We are capable of making excellent plans and reaching the goals we most desire. But life is complex and we may be unaware of decisions and situations going on that may impact our progress. Crap happens and eventually it’s going to happen to us. People get in the way, problems arise, things break and endless details may go wrong. It doesn’t always mean we took a wrong turn, or reflect on our choices. If we get stuck or turned around, we have everything we need to regroup and start again.

Some people will do or say anything to look good. They may lie about their qualifications or credentials, or manipulate those around them so they can jump over them and move ahead. When things go wrong, they may blame others and refuse to accept responsibility for their actions. It’s impossible to trust them and if we must interact with them, it may be very difficult. We are not responsible for anyone else’s choices but our own. We can choose wisely and stand strong, knowing success is just ahead and we will claim it.

Today if your plans have gone awry and others have been impacted, own your part in the situation and stand firm. You are intelligent and capable, and will find all the answers you need to move forward with clarity and confidence. Be wise and clear. The road ahead is still there for you and with determination and focus, every destination you desire is possible. You are strong and smart, and nothing can keep you from success. Move forward and every dream will be yours.

Don’t Tell

17 Sep

We go through a lot of experiences as we travel through our lives. Most of us want to be open and honest, but we might face a time when something happens, or we do something we don’t want anyone to know about. Maybe it’s something we’re ashamed of, or we fear others will think less of us if the truth comes out. If we’ve done something illegal or unethical, we may be intensely motivated to keep it hidden. Nobody is perfect and we all do things we wish we hadn’t, but keeping secrets isn’t easy. They are heavy, and tend to get heavier as time passes. Truth is powerful, and no matter what we do or how well we try to hide it, will eventually make itself known. Nothing can hold it back indefinitely. We may feel secure that we have covered all the bases, but we cannot know everything and we’re all far more connected than we may realize. Our lives are ours to design and we can live them any way we want. Trying to hide something we’ve done may work for a time, but eventually, however long that takes, the truth will rise and we’ll be exposed. Nothing is powerful enough to hold us in place forever. We are strong enough and brave enough to face the consequences of anything that’s happened. We can open all the doors, and move through whatever we must to correct our course. There is great relief and blessing in telling the truth. All the destinations we desire are still there for us, and with honesty and determination, we will reach them all.

Some people are very private. They don’t want to share intimate details about their lives and prefer to keep a low profile. There is a difference between being private and being secretive. We’re all individuals, and are entitled to set the boundaries of what we do and how we manage our own lives. There are no mandatory rules, and we can determine how much we’ll say and what we’ll do. It’s all up to us, and we can do things that make us comfortable while still sharing our lives with those around us.

If we’ve made a mistake that is far reaching and believe our standing with others will be diminished if they find out, we may try to lock it away and keep it hidden. Every decision we make has a consequence and takes us somewhere. Keeping secrets may cause us to entangle our lives as we try to skirt around what has happened. It’s much harder to navigate a web of lies than it is to simply face the truth. Our lives are important, and by being honest in all our dealings, we can pave the road ahead toward where we most want to go. We can trust ourselves to be truthful and manage whatever comes.

Today if you’ve been keeping a secret and it’s weighing heavily on you, think about how you want to proceed. There is no need to hide anything. You are stronger and have more courage than you think. Trust yourself and be honest. There are countless blessings waiting to pour down on you. All your dreams are possible. Step forward with clarity and confidence. You are worthwhile, amazing and powerful. Nothing can keep you from success.

Make Believe

28 Dec

We make millions of decisions as we go through our lives. Many are routine and inconsequential, and we hardly give them any thought. However, some decisions are so important, they may change the trajectory of our lives moving forward. If we’re in a tight spot and doing the right thing would be difficult, we might decide to choose an easier, although unethical or dishonest, option. Bad decisions may require little effort in the beginning, but what happens afterward may be harder to face. We are always in control of everything we do, and if we want to, can choose the easiest roads ahead regardless of whether or not they are the best. If we get tangled up and impact others, we can deny we had anything to do with it and ignore the complications we’ve created, but the truth will eventually rise, and we’ll have to answer for what we’ve done. Playing make believe is fun when we’re children, but pretending things are different than they really are never works as adults. Nobody is perfect and we’re all going to falter at some time or another, but by owning our decisions and doing what is needed to correct our course and fix what we’ve broken, we can regain our footing and get back on track. Our lives belong to us and each choice we make defines who we are. We can choose wisely and live in ways that bring us happiness and the respect of those around us. Or we can thoughtlessly blunder through, do what we want regardless of the consequences, and have lives filled with chaos and disharmony. The choices we make will decide what happens. We are intelligent and capable of making excellent decisions. By taking our time, and getting as much information as possible beforehand, we can make choices that bring us the results we’re seeking. We don’t have to play make believe when our lives reflect what we want most and take us where we want to go.

It takes a lot of energy to come up with stories and try to design facts to create a narrative we want. Instead of embellishing what’s really happening, we can simply state things as they are and let the situation develop honestly. We can be confident in making good decisions, and trust ourselves to find the best roads ahead. Every destination is there for us, and with clarity and focus, we will succeed.

When we want to look our best, we may wear our best clothes and add adornments that make us look great. Dressing up can change the way we appear to others but dressing up the truth changes nothing. Truth is what it is. Trying to make it appear different to be more pleasing or easier to accept doesn’t change the situation. We can manage anything that arises and face any complication or problem, sure we will prevail. Nothing is too hard for us to handle, and every success is always possible.

Today if you’re tempted to make a bad decision out of desperation or uncertainty, remember how strong and capable you are. Face things as they are and make choices that will help you move forward. Every destination is possible, and with honesty and clarity, you can do anything you desire. You are amazing and capable, and nothing can keep you from success.
