Lie vs Truth – Which one have you been believing in? Your behavior is the echo of your belief. So make sure that what you believe in are the truth and not a lie. Sharon Witt (https://www.sharonwitt.com.au/) has put together three wrong beliefs and three truths to break those lies.
Lie vs Truth #1
Lie says “I am never good enough.”
Truth says: “You are enough! The very qualities that you think let you down, may actually be those that make you shine when you are much older.”
Lie vs Truth #2
Lie says “I need to fit in to be accepted.”
Truth says “Don’t compare yourself to others. You are running your own race and there is no one else exactly like you, and that is a good thing.”
Lie vs Truth #3
Lie says “I need to make everyone happy.”
Truth says “Don’t make decisions based on pleasing everyone else around you. Listen to that inner voice, your intuition that tells you what is the best path for you.”
