Honesty and telling the truth are not the same thing.
Honesty is about admitting your flaws and shortcomings. It's about seeing where you've made mistakes or fallen short and recognising that it's OK to do so. Honesty is the ability to be self-aware of your feelings, what's going on with you, and why.
Telling the truth is different because it involves communicating with others in a way that doesn't hide anything. It means saying things in a straightforward manner without sugarcoating or downplaying them. Telling the truth is not a sales pitch, you don’t have to convince or manipulate others. It means choosing words carefully so they accurately convey exactly what you want to say without misleading or misdirecting anyone else who might be listening—or reading!
Destiny is the free will of our highest selves.
We all have it, but not everyone will discover what it is.
We all have a destiny, and it's up to us to uncover it. It's like a treasure map we can't see—it's just there, but we have to figure out where to look. Finding your destiny will feel like coming home: you'll know right away that this is where you're meant to be.
But how do we find our true purpose? Well, just like with any treasure hunt, there are clues along the way. Some are big and obvious, while others are small and subtle—but if you keep your eyes open for them and pay attention, they'll lead you right where you need to go.
And once you've found your destiny? Well, then the fun begins! You get to start living the life that was meant just for YOU.
The fear of success can be a paralyzing force.
You might not even realize it's there. You might think you're just being humble, or trying to do the right thing by not looking too far ahead or earning too much money.
But it's not that—it's actually a fear of success. And it can really hold you back from experiencing all the good things life has in store for you.
What is success? We're not talking about some kind of external metric—we're talking about you feeling genuinely happy with what you've accomplished in life, from getting your first job to raising a family to starting your own business. But when we have this fear of success, we tend to measure ourselves by external factors like money and fame instead of by internal factors like feeling good about ourselves and our ability to make choices that help us grow as people (and yes even help us achieve financial independence).
