I'm sure that one of the first things that comes to your mind is that famous line from that movie where the statement is made, "You can't handle the truth!", right?
But, in all honesty (truth?) we must be willing to ask that of ourselves - can we (can YOU) handle the truth when it comes to yourself?
In many areas of our lives it is VITAL that we be honest with ourselves ABOUT ourselves. My guess is that you could talk to an psychiatrist and they'd tell you that one of the main causes of a lot of people's emotional problems is this very thing --- not being able to be honest with themselves.
I would also guess that if you were to ask those that work with people having financial problems you'd find the same thing - people that are unwilling to be HONEST with themselves about their situation.
LIVING IN DENIAL.
That's why one of the first and most important steps with ANY sort of addiction is the realization and admitting that one does, indeed, actually have a problem! One of the problems has been DENIAL of a problem and, many times, there has also been a problem of some sort of denial with a family member or family members.
You can likely sit down and think about this and MAYBE admit that, in your own life, this is a struggle for you in several different areas whether it be financial, health and weight loss and/or a myriad of other areas as well.
So, here it is, bottom line: in the area of self-improvement or just the thought of making progress in your desire to reach your goals and dreams - ARE YOU BEING HONEST WITH YOURSELF about your EFFORT and your ACTION?
The truth is that many -if not most - are not.
Go back and visit all of the excuses that are usually disguised as reasons.
We'll be talking about this all week and I hope you 'll join me on this journey to "get real" with ourselves and begin to finally FACE THE TRUTH about who we are and what we are doing.
WARNING: This will not likely be easy or pleasant.
But, it IS necessary.
And, yes, even as you consider these thoughts, you have the ability to...
"Make it an AWESOME day! (Who else is going to do it for you?)"
