148: Embrace Reality

For the longest time, I had a very bad habit of lying to myself.

I didn't mean to lie to myself, but I just couldn't accept reality.
I couldn't accept that my businesses were actually struggling. 
And that I wasn't as good of an entrepreneur as I thought I was.

So I lied to myself.

I blamed the outside world any time something went wrong.
It wasn't me. It was the world that was stopping me.

At some point, I had to open my eyes.
I had to look in the mirror and see the truth of my reality.

Despite how great I thought I was at business, my results were shit.

This was a turning point for me. 
This is when I began to seek outside help and advisers.
This is when I really started to revolutionize my life.

But you can't change your life if you don't see it for what it actually is today. 

You have to stop lying to yourself.
And you must embrace reality.
