Uncovering the Lies We Tell Ourselves | Ep 56

And how to counter them.

Self-deception is one of the great challenges humans face. Our ability to be conscious and aware separates us from the rest of the animal kingdom. But we can be very crafty about our ability to deny reality too.

Our minds are powerful. They create the world we experience. If we don’t take the time to examine our minds and the things we believe, then we can spend most of our days in a haze of mistruth and deception.

The good news is all of this can be challenged and uncovered. Sunlight is the best disinfectant. So awareness works like a powerful ray of light in our minds.

Let’s dig in!

What’s Happening in Today’s Episode

There are all types of lies we tell ourselves. This episode focuses on a few common ones and covers ways to root out the lies. The things discussed on the show can be applied to any self-deception we may find ourselves in.

The idea is to be brave enough to observe ourselves and begin to challenge the lies we’ve accepted. We can almost always counter them with a reframe of truth that is loving and supportive. Too much of our life is spent living small and in fear because of these lies.

Here is a quick highlight of the main topics discussed:

  • Introduction to navigating projection

  • Understanding projection: What is it, and why does it happen?

  • Spotting projection: Signs and red flags

  • The impact of projection on relationships and personal growth

  • Overcoming projection: Strategies for self-awareness and growth

  • How to deal with projections from others

  • Conclusion

Taking the things we learn in the show and applying them to our lives is meant to empower the creation of what we desire. We are creative beings with incredible potential. All that can go to waste if we accept lies about who we are.

For most of our lives, we’ve been lied to. Whether intentional or not, we must learn to uncover these things and root them out. Replacing them with loving ideas of power and growth.

Anything can be accomplished with a persistent and loving approach.

As always, with every episode of my show, I aim to share things that may resonate to be used in your life today. Studying the concepts of self-mastery will hopefully give you the tools to tap into your highest potential.
