We’ve all bought into ideas or opinions that we later found to be blatant lies. While the people who shared those ideas and opinions may have meant well, unfortunately they did not help build our confidence.
While we cannot always be immune to other people’s ideas and opinions, we must be cautious about what we’re buying into because if we start believing most things we hear, not only will it decrease our confidence, it can also:
- Limit our thinking in terms of what’s possible for us.
- Keep us where we are because we may be hesitant to challenge ourselves.
- Affect our interactions with those around us.
The sooner we become aware of what some of these lies are, the quicker we can acquire new perspectives so that we can move past them.
