One of the things that can radically change your life is being unapologetically honest with yourself but first you have to discover the undesired​ truth. The challenge, however, comes with being willing to face the conflict that comes up in the process when it comes to your dreams and goals.

In order to experience good health, successful careers, harmonious relationships you need to understand yourself in ways no one else can or will understand you and it comes from being brutally honest with yourself. In some cases, the absence of this knowledge leads to accidents, illness, suffering, failure, and death. And that may seem quite of bit dramatic but before I faced my own demons and chose to be honest with myself, I was, in fact, drinking to self-destruct. The kind of drinking that lead to a DUI and could have potentially killed someone.

So anytime you want to create a change in your life, to go after a dream and goal, the first task is to face the truth and gain the knowledge about yourself and the world around us.

Why would you be unwilling to face your own truth?

For one because you want to live happily following your dreams and goals you are needing to face insecurity, self-sabotaging behaviors and thoughts and putting the time to learn what you need to know to move forward.

Too often fear, pride, and laziness are obstacles that get in the way and you may be unknowingly be avoiding to admit the truth to yourself. to the pursuit of truth and happiness. People are unlikely to admit they are wrong when they are, unless they possess courage and humility. Whoever takes their good to heart should help them develop these virtues.

Over the years, I’ve seen people say they are an entrepreneur and yet are not committed enough to address the self-sabotage and mindset challenges that get in the way and so end up half-asking the whole thing.

The second part is mindset and getting your head around what you want to achieve and being willing to face the thoughts that will without question come to your mind.

For years, life was chaos but it was an internal chaos more than outside chaos. When my son was ill I know I’ve thought and said: “I cannot believe it; this cannot be happening.” I mean, wasn’t growing up in foster care enough or dealing with PTSD from sexual trauma?

It was to a point that I didn’t believe I could happy in this lifetime. And yet, because through my own experiences and my son being in the hospital for a long time, it required me to address my self-sabotage which meant I had to be brutally honest with myself.

When you experience rock bottom (emotional or financial or both) and you hold steadfast onto the thought “this can’t be all there is to life” and then snowly climb back up, you will develop a new outlook on life.

Discover the undesired​ truth starts with the realization that you have a choice to make: keep going the way you are or choose to start over and reinvent yourself.

Neither of which can’t happen without facing an element of truth about yourself. So ask yourself:

Do you want to stay where you are?

Do you want to create change?

Are you ready to be honest with yourself?

Or do you prefer staying in denial and avoidance?

The answer to these questions will lead you either to simply floating in a bubble where nothing will change and life just keeps going as it has been. Or it will give you the knowledge that the time for change is here.

In The Gathering, you will be able to get clear on where you are and where you want to go and you will have the support so you don’t have to do it alone.
