    Stop Lying to Yourself | Road to Revenue #64

    Eight Ways to Stop Lying To Yourself

    Once we have a better understanding of the signs that we’re lying to ourselves, it’s time to utilize strategies to stop telling these lies.

    1. Stop taking constructive criticism as a personal attack - Don’t assume the negative when others are providing you opportunities to learn and grow. Take a more positive perspective and try to find the light, love, and lessons in the input of those around you.

    2. Stop trying to convince everyone that you're right - The ego and its needs are one of our greatest enemies, especially our need to be right. When you must always be correct or superior, you will invariably tell yourself lies to elevate your self esteem.

    3. Realize that you can enjoy the consistent and persistent pursuit of your potential - Attaching your emotions to a specific outcome is not the right mindset to have, instead focus on achieving progress each day and enjoying yourself in the process.

    4. Take chances - Be willing to take risks, rather than telling yourself, “It’s never going to happen”. Nothing extraordinary happens when you are taking ordinary chances.

    5. Stop putting things off until tomorrow - One of the most common ways we lie to ourselves occurs when we decide that we will do something later that could easily be accomplished now. That’s why I have a “Do It Now” Rule.

    6. Quit doubting yourself - Worrying means that you are voting for something that you don’t want in your life. Starve your doubts and fears, don’t give them any energy or attention.

    7. Consider others' points of view - Whenever our reality doesn’t match what others perceive, it is important to take a step back and try to understand why. This reflection can stop us from repeating the same lies to ourselves over and over.

    8. Realize when you've taken on too much – Another common lie we tell ourselves is that we don’t need help, when asking for assistance would be our best path forward. It’s alright to admit that we are in over our head and need help.

David Meltzer is phenomenal

David Meltzer is absolutely phenomenal, I closely watch the influencer space for my own learning for 10+ years, purely for inspiration but also for the greatest good for others wanting to embark on an entrepreneurial journey or just personal development. David has hands down far exceeded anyone else in this space. I listen to many podcasts, YouTube videos and have never left a comment or review. ever. This is my first one without hesitation and I wish him the very best and have recommended to others, his personal brand needs more awareness his message is congruent personally with my own, give him a listen and he’ll expand your mind, make you hungry to succeed, ground yourself, give to others and change the world. How may I be of service? Beautiful man.
