You don't follow through. "But I'm a good person"
You don't tell the truth when it counts. "But I'm honest"
You spread blame to others. "But I'm a responsible"
The world is constantly giving us feedback on who we are.
If we do a certain thing, we can be sure that we are that thing.
What we don't do however, is listen.
We create stories to cover any truth. To soothe our egos.
When we start the hard process of viewing ourselves objectively, we start to get all this valuable feedback. Feedback that if we listen, will change us in profound ways.
If it feels unnatural at first, know that you're in the right direction.
And know that you will be a different person at the end.
