Lies+Lies=>Truth

ist1_3015755-genius.jpgHere’s an equation: 

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 LifeChurch.tv 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?
