Potential lies


How often do you lie to yourself? Tell yourself you can do something when you’re not really sure that you can? Maybe you should start.

If you start telling yourself little lies about what you’re capable of, perhaps you’ll start to believe it. Maybe you’ll try something new because of it. Maybe you’ll find out you’re good at it. Maybe not.

Maybe you’ll lie to yourself enough to continue trying, and through doing more you’ll become good at it. Maybe you’ll find that little untruth you told yourself wasn’t so far-fetched after all.

Maybe sometimes you need to tell yourself little lies to uncover greater truths.
