Pitching The Truth

Jul 17, 2018

Lying isn’t something any of us is particularly proud of. It’s why we hide the fact that we lie in the first place. And not only do we hide our lying, we spend an inordinate amount of time trying to justify it, defend it, and/or blame it on anything but our own sneaky and cowardly selves.

In this episode, Greg talks about the speech he did at an event of Lakewood Colorado Rotary Club that tackles about the negative impact lying can cause your health and the importance of joining a circle like a rotary club to help people live their lives truthfully.

Some other side effects of lying include:

  • Lying creates a makeup reality. The act of keeping and hiding a secret because of lying gives us that agony of making our stories to be consistent and convincing to the people we lied on to.
  • Lying hide the real you. If you hold on to secrets long enough and insulate yourself with them, in a sense, you become your secrets.
  • Lying brings agony and stress. Keeping years off of your life.
  • Lying keeps you awake and has difficulty sleeping.
  • By lying you lose your appetite and eventually lose weight.
