Honestly, we are suckers for our own lies and story lines – justifications for what we do and why we’re doing it. When we really want something – or want to do something that we suspect isn’t wise, we tell bald-faced lies to ourselves – lies that if someone else told us, we’d laugh in their faces and say, “Give me a break! What do you think I am, stupid? Naïve?” But when we’re trying to justify and excuse ourselves – we tell the lie and believe the lie! When we’re about to make a decision, the question we really, really need to ask has to be the integrity question; Am I being honest with myself? Am I being honest with myself – REALLY?
