When we fixate on all the things we are not. When we notice only the things we do not have, we weaken our faith. In doing this, we perpetuate the lies we tell ourselves, and repeatedly sabotage growth. Self-sabotage is alive and well. Without self awareness, without faith, and without hope, we will continue to self-sabotage. Henry Ford said it best when he stated, “Whether you think you can or whether you think you can’t you’re right.” Our thoughts are a powerful thing. They create our feelings, they lead us to behave in ways that lead us to outcomes we dread or desire.
People often act in fear. Without awareness, they walk in fear. Many are paralyzed by fear, so they do not act. Some procrastinate, some make excuses, and some just avoid entirely. Self-defeating, self-sabotage, is all due to the ego. When our views remain narrow and focused only on ourselves, we will continue to edge God out. If I told you the remedy would you receive it? If I told you that Fear is a Liar would you believe me? If I told you that you exist for a purpose greater than the lie you tell yourself will you be open to hear it?
I cannot save my clients from their self-defeat. I cannot save them from the lies they tell themselves, but I can tell them that Fear is a Liar. Allow moments of pain to be lessons. Allow challenges to change your character. Let moments of fear to propel you into hope. Do not allow the ego to take hold of your energy or spirit. Fixate on truth. The truth that you were made for so much more, that all things change, and that we can dictate how we receive our experiences.
Imagine your life is perfect in every respect what would it look like? How would you show up every day if this was your reality? Why not begin to show up this way today? If fear is a liar, faith can become your reality, hope can become the energy that guides you, and barriers around you will begin to crumble. Do not be a slave to fear! Instead shout Fear is a Liar!
