This is no word of a lie; we deceive ourselves into believing that we are not good enough or strong enough. This is due to certain lies we believe to be true. So what are the most common lies that we tell ourselves?
5 Lies We Tell Ourselves To Never Believe
1. I’m so fat that nobody will love me.
This is merely social programming telling us that our body needs to be a certain way for members of the opposite sex to notice me. This is absolutely false. According to research by the University of Texas, science proves that the perfect body is not a stick-thin clothes horse, but the bust/weight/hip measurements are 99-63-91. How does that look in real life? Like Kelly Brook, a model, actress and TV presenter. She was voted in the UK’s FHM Magazine’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World as THE sexiest in 2005.
Here are ten more plus-size beauties that are not afraid to show what their mamas gave ’em, listed by The Richest: Katty DeLux, Jessica Kylie, Crystal Rose, Andrea Beth, Genny Miliano, Ashley Graham, Mal Malloy, Olivia Jensen, Crystal McBootay (also known as “Thickness”), Ivy Doomkitty. I must admit, I was LMAO about McBootay but I love her “curvy, thick and proud” attitude. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, you sexy thing!
2. I have no willpower.
Will-POWER, baby! You will conjugate that with power: I will power, you will power, he/she/it will power, we will power, you will power, they will power. Just saying the word “power” empowers you, add a “will” to it and you will power through anything life puts in front of you. That is willpower.
For inspiration, copy and paste the previous paragraph onto a new Word document, then print it out and put that sheet of paper anywhere you normally look. Warning: This can produce huge positive effects on your life. Use with extreme gusto.
Joy Manning of WebMD states that “your willpower is in limited supply” and uses the analogy of someone with limited financial resources to make her point. If you have spent all you have, you have no money to spend on anything else. People look for ways to earn more money and you can use the same principal for willpower. Exercising right can lead to healthy eating, healthy eating can lead to an increase in feelgood factor, feelgood factor can lead to more productiveness, more productiveness can change your life completely.
3. I can’t deal with this.
You are not a dealer in a Las Vegas casino, your job is to play the hand with which you were dealt. The Universe takes away our chips to test us. Do you have what it takes to push through life’s tests?
The late master Jim Rohn, who was broke at the age of twenty-five, was later well-known for his public speaking about personal development. He said, “If you want to have more, you have to become more. For things to change, you have to change. For things to get better, you have to get better. For things to improve, you have to improve. If you grow, everything grows for you.” In other words, you CAN deal with this. Just find the willpower to get through it and both you and the house wins (the house being the Universe).
4. I’m a victim of my past.
Read that again: I’m a victim of my past. OF MY PAST. This just means that you are victim of the present because of the past. You have let the past define who you are now. If you focus on the past on the footpath of life, you will bump into a lamppost. That will leave an egg on your head and on your face, making bad choices and blaming it all on what happened.
Author Alan Robert Neal said, “The problem with the blaming your present on your past is that history cannot be changed.”
I used to be this way. I was so angry and hurt about what happened to me that I had all of this pent up inside me. It was eating away at my life and it still has an effect on me, even though I have since let go of the pain. I still find it difficult to make friends, even though I am married to the most wonderful partner. It sounds corny but there is light at the end of the tunnel. You are a SURVIVOR of the past and a WARRIOR of the present.
5. I can’t go on.
Why not? You have done it all your life. Let that sink in for a moment.
Going on is what life is all about, its very essence. Life goes on consistently and if you do not move, you remain static and rot away. Without physical movement, your muscles start to become useless and atrophy, slowly KILLING you. There is a song by Gerry and the Pacemakers, the lesser-known group from Liverpool, called, “You’ll Never Walk Alone”. Below are the lyrics to the chorus, which is normally sung in soccer/football matches in Liverpool (England), Glasgow (Scotland) and Dortmund (Germany):
“Walk on! Walk on!
With hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone…
You’ll never walk alone!”
Go on then, you are bigger and better than any negative thinking out there. Walk on! What are you waiting for, chief?
