Lying does not always mean telling falsehoods; it can be a sin of omission—like counting from one to 20, but skipping the numbers after 15 to get to 20. If this sounds like you, you'd be wise to rein in such a habit. Can you recall your original dreams and aspirations or have they become lost in the false claims that you are making?
The easy road is not always the quickest way to get to where you're going. If you take a jet plane, but hide under the seat all the way to your destination, what will happen when that plane lands? Will you remain under the seat? If you have not come prepared for an extended period of isolation, you will be unable to breathe, you will get hungry and thirsty, and eventually, you will die.
You must take time to honestly prepare yourself for success. A lion wouldn't set out to hunt in the dark. A lion cannot survive on the kill of other lions and call it adaptation—that's pathetic and weak. You won’t deserve to be called a lion until you can roar your own way to success.
