If you believe a lie long enough, eventually people will begin to believe it as truth. 

I haven’t been able to get this saying out of my head. Dave Ramsey used this saying when he spoke at this past weekend to describe what people believe about money. But ever since hearing it I can’t seem to get out of my head how true it is when it comes to insecurity.

Let me give you an example: Whatever you believe about yourself, be it low thoughts of yourself, high thoughts, no thoughts, eventually that’s what people will believe about you too. Understanding this concept is so vitally important.

  • If you don’t believe that what you have to say matters… others won’t believe it matters either.
  • If you don’t think you can do something… others won’t think you can do it either.
  • If you think you’re insecure, you will act insecure… causing others to believe you’re insecure. (A lie)
  • Add some of your own…

Whatever you believe about yourself is how your actions and behaviors will follow your line of thinking. What we believe about ourselves determines our behaviors, and in turn effects what others believe about us as well.

Do you agree, disagree? Have you seen this play out in your life? 

Red Bud Classic…

redbud.jpgI just registered for the Oklahoma City Red Bud Classic. This year I’ll be running the 10k–which is 6.1 miles. This will be a good warm up for the Memorial Marathon coming up at the end of April.

The cool thing about the Red Bud is that it is easy enough that even first time runners can participate. They have a 5K (3 mile) run as well as a 5K walk. They even have a 2 mile stroller walk! If you’d like to be a part of the Red Bud this year, click on the link above and register!

My friend and team member @tonycobb will be doing the 5k this year! So proud of him! What about you?
