When you stop lying, both to yourself and others, you will set yourself on a clear path towards your goals. If you continue to lie, sooner or later, everything will fall apart. Remember, even the smallest lie will eventually spiral into a big lie and that big lie will undo everything you have worked towards.
Do not lie to yourself.
Set your ambitions and follow through on them, proceed as effectively and efficiently towards them as you can, and do not lie - especially to yourself.
Pay attention to what you do and say.
Ensure that it is in accordance with the truth.
