10 Lies Everyone Accepts As Truth

Jesse Herman | Spirit Science & Metaphysics

We go through life with belief systems. Some of these beliefs deal with external forces, such as government and corporations. Other belief systems are internal, propelling ourselves one direction or another. Right now I want you to take the opportunity to see if some of these truths listed below are actually lies you’ve been telling yourself all along.

1) You Have To Struggle

To succeed one has to put in the time, the grind the blood, sweat and tears, right? To an extent it is true but also true is the fact that being relaxed, focused on what works and having the ability to step away and do other things is critical. Many people try to do everything all-at-once instead of focusing on something small that works, working that angle and growing slowly. Consistency and discipline are far more important than frantic hours of wasted time or burnout that leads to a crash.


2) Life is A Competition

Competition can be fun. My older brother and sister refused to play board games with me because I was too competitive. We like to intellectualize a primal instinct to get the most bananas and attract the opposite sex. Once one goes through enough of these ‘competitions’ it becomes obvious that fighting to win these battles will lead you down a path of losing the war. There is not winner or loser, there are only  paths that we must blaze.

3) My Mistakes Define Me

more than mistakes

We like to convey a ‘perfect’ life to the outside world. Look no further than Facebook for proof. If my friends on Facebook are as happy as they appear, then I might just have the happiest friends that every existed. Most of us don’t announce are failures to the world and beyond some self deprecating humor, truth in follies is rarely revealed. There are no mistakes, only learning that goes on with experience, which will lead to a goal if one can pay attention to the lessons that failure brings.

4) Time Is Real

time is illusion

We are in a hurry because of the watch on our hand. The years, months, weeks, days, hours, minutes and seconds are continually ‘tick tock’ ‘tick tock’ ‘tick tock’ …. in our minds. We all have time as long as our priorities are in order.

5) Money Is Real

Money sucks our energy and can consume us. It rules our life but it’s just paper. Society agrees to a centrally controlled value and we go about our business of trying to collect as much of it as possible, often losing our minds in the process. They key is to flourish without all the worry and letting money work for you.
