9 Lies Everybody Believes to Be True

Our mind can make anything believable, so it’s up to us to question our B.S.
(Belief Systems), the stuff that has been handed down to us by our parents, peers, or culture.

Here are 9 lies you can let go of:

1) Everybody is doing better than me. We are all living, coping, learning and growing. Nobody is immune to life’s vascillations, so there’s no benefit in comparing ourselves to others.

2) Life is hard; you’ve got to struggle. This is a popular one that is often handed down from our parents. Of course, it’s a lie. We don’t have to live a conveyer belt lifestyle. We can make our life what we want. Pain is inevitable, but suffering is optional. We only suffer when we can’t let go, move on and create something new. What do you love to do? Do that.

3) Money is everything. Wrong. When you’re old, all that’s going to be left is your memories of the people you loved and your experiences with them. Invest in that.

4) You should be married (by a certain age). None of us have to get married or have children. Instead, we have to do what resonates with our heart space.

5) More degrees equal more success. We are taught that education will create a career, but that’s not true. Studying is wonderful. It opens doors and opens your minds. But a degree is not needed to live your dreams.

6) If you don’t have a job, you’re useless. It's not true, because you can create your own work. You can collaborate with people and develop your vision. When you do this, your passion becomes your job.

7) You’re no good if you don’t have the perfect body. How many of us go on diets just to try into an image that has been manipulated by advertisers? You have to have a body shape and size that is authentic to you. We aren’t supposed to look the same. We’re supposed to look how we see ourselves in our minds at our highest level.

8) There is a limit to what you can achieve. There is no limit. We are infinite. There’s no need for us to rest on our laurels. We can keep creating and expanding, and we have more and more fun.

9) You have to have it all figured out. Enlightenment is knowing how much you don’t know. Explore possibilities. You must continually let go of the old if you want to keep learning more.

Keep giving yourself reality checks, so you can avoid believing these and other popular lies.
