How Safe Are You From the Danger of Trickery?

Nobody likes to be tricked in this life. Safe statement, wouldn’t you say?

On the other hand, many people are tricked daily by the way they think. They don’t have a clear perspective of reality because they have a fuzzy vision of their world. A fuzzy vision born of their own trickery.

Were you to be one of those people there are severe consequences to the quality of your life.  Little things like frustration; disappointment; sadness; lack of fulfillment; poor self-image and MORE!

If you want to avoid being tricked in your life by your own thinking, then you have to challenge your thinking. You can’t presume you’re being honest with yourself.

The only foolproof test of that honesty that I know of is for you to look in the mirror. If you have a queasy feeling in your gut, you know you have been tricking yourself.

If that’s the case, try turning your honesty switch on and adjusting your thinking. Get in front of a mirror and ask yourself some serious questions:

Do you really believe in who you are?

If not begin by doing this about that.

Are you truly excited about your direction in life?

If not begin by doing this about that.

What is truly important to you?

If you don’t know, begin by doing this about that.

Why do you feel success or failure, currently?

Do this about that.

Are you willing to commit to what you have to do to make the changes you need to make?

If so begin by doing this about that.

Do you think of rain as a negative event or good news for the food sources that sustain you?

Consider this to understand that.

When you can provide yourself honest answers to the above questions, trickery loses to truth. When you deal only in the truth you will never have to feel you’ve been tricked again!


What specifically are you going to do to avoid tricking yourself into a reality that isn’t true north for you?

By when will you make the necessary changes in your life so you can look at yourself in the mirror and be happy rather than queasy?
