By telling the truth, you won’t have to remember much. You won’t have to remember who you lied to and what. And so you can express yourself without second guessing.

If you always tell the truth, you won’t lie to yourself. Wishful thinking is a trap which will have an easier time avoiding if you always tell the truth.

Truth leads to clarity. Truth will set you free. If you are not free, see if you are speaking the truth or don’t know it completely.

Telling the truth is adventurous.


Telling the truth is easier when you believe certain assumptions:

  1. By telling the truth, the best possible scenario that can happen will happen.
  2. While speaking the truth even if you are afraid to think you are alone know that others exists. they are just as afraid as you.

If you are overwhelmed, see if you are telling the truth.

Telling the truth unhides the fog. Truth always shines.

Not telling the truth is bad for self esteem.

Why you should speak up

At meetings, everybody does not understand. By speaking up and asking questions, giving suggestion everyone benifits.

By speaking up, likeminded people will come to you.

By speaking up, you increase trust.

By speaking up, you never have the regret of being silent.

By speaking up, if someday you are on a wrong track others will speak up and tell you.


Framing is something we use all the time.

Every information has to be compressed in some way else it will take forever to speak.

Therefore, we have to make sure we be as precise as possible without taking forever to convey.
