Exposing my Truth

2018-07-1700:23:11

Is Lying  Ruining Your Health
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.   Topics Covered 01:30 – Rotary Club: The Four Way Test 05:16 – Greg talks about Well’s Fargo Fraud 07:32 – the consequence of not doing the right thing 09:00 – the importance of accountability 10:58 – Greg discussing a study about truth from Notre Dame 12:13 – negative impacts of lying to your health 15:33 – Two Groups of people: direct honest people; liars and deceitful 17:08 – Greg’s positive flow of abundance for being honest    Tweetable Takeaways from this Episode People need to be held accountable. Every day with social media, and the media, in general, we are being told lie to win. And the reality is that you do not win. You cannot win by lying. Stress is caused by lying and being deceitful. It can take years off of your life. If I can make one person not make the same mistake I’ve made and not go through all the pain I’ve gone through, then my mission is complete.    Links http://veracitygp.com/ Gregory Paul’s Book- The Truth About Lies https://www.rotarycluboflakewood.org/

Owning Your S$#%
It's never easy to admit you've made a mistake, but it's a crucial step in learning, growing, and improving yourself. You can only learn from a mistake after you admit you've made it. As soon as you start blaming other people, you distance yourself from any possible lesson. But if you courageously own up your mistakes and take responsibility for it, learning and growth will come to you. 3 Action Items on How to Identify and Learn from Your Mistakes   Embrace who you really are. Like what Greg mentioned, in today’s world of social media things are superficial and pretentious. As he shared his past mistakes it helped him that he owned who he really was and embrace his story. Talk your thoughts to people you trust. Having a genuine communication to people you trust leads to help and gives them the opportunity to step up and say, “Hey, how can I help you today?” It also builds your accountability group. Take inventory of people who you want to spend time with. As Greg shared, he eliminated his connection with people who are energy and time-suck. Not that he never want to connect with them. But he took the liberty to take an inventory of the people he wants to stay on his life that will help him grow and be a better person. He shared by doing so, it gave him free time to spend on purposeful things like meditation and reading.   Topics Covered 01:18 – Greg’s reconnection to a previous coaching client in Linkedin 06:28 – the importance of talking to people you trust 08:42 – Greg as a looper 10:30 – Greg talking about his past and how being about it helped him 11:20 – Connect with Greg   Tweetable Takeaways from this Episode Usually, people’s action does not match their words.

Don't Call it a Comeback
Greg has been a career salesperson, entrepreneur, and business creator most of his life. But the time came that he had a hard time to keep the truth. His business struggled, he chose to live a dishonest lifestyle, that eventually brought disheartening consequences to him and to the people he loves--even caused the loss of his own freedom. Some mistakes are greater than others but you should know how you’ll be able to bounce back and take a REBOUND even if your failure threatens to crush everything you’ve worked so hard to build. In this episode, Greg shares important insights and strategies he did to BOUNCE BACK and REBOUND from his life’s adversity. Here are Greg’s Proven Strategies to Rebound from Adversity Reflect and own up your mistakes. Like what Greg did on his first day on the prison cell, he wrote letters to people he hurt and offended asking for forgiveness and owning up his mistakes. Tune out from all the negativity. Wear your “earplugs”. Chose not to listen to all the distractions and negativity that will hinder you to move forward. Seek Clarity. You can choose to meditate, pray, read, and write or journal to clear all your thoughts. Develop a routine. As Tim Ferris said Routine means freedom. Control your distractions. Chose to eliminate your life’s distraction in order for you to reach your goal and destination. Take action and move on. Find for solutions and interesting things to solve your adversity. Eliminate your life’s anchor from moving forward. Do not get sucked up by other people’s negativity that tells you cannot do it.   Topics Covered 01:47 –  Greg’s business story: car dealership, wine store, real estate, and auto repair shop 04:17 –  his business downfall—the end of the lying game 09:06 –  Greg describes what it is like inside the prison facility 09:50 –  How Greg distracted himself by praying, meditating, reading and writing 11:55 –  How Greg develop a daily routine to cope up with his days inside the facility 13:05 –  the power of meditating, praying, and journaling routine to gain clarity 16:35 –  ways can control your distractions 18:26 – the power of reflection 20:13 –  Greg’s powerful tips to overcome adversity   Tweetable Takeaways from this Episode I started to read because I realized I had to distract myself. I would not accept that I was in prison. I would not accept that I was in jail. I would never accept this reality. Freedom could be anything. When I meditated I was no longer in prison. I could literally tune out the world. My thoughts are so deep, my mind is so clear. With the power of routine. That is how I overcame the obstacles of fear, worry, anxiety, shame, anger, and frustration. When you are trying to overcome adversity, it is so difficult because you are so distracted. But you can choose to shut it off. You’ve got to hustle to overcome adversity.   Links Marcus Aurelius- Author of Meditations http://veracitygp.com/ Gregory Paul’s Book- The Truth About Lies

In Your Face Honesty
When it comes to relationships – it is recommended to start with honesty. Honesty is a sign of wholeness, confidence, and self-love. Honesty equates to trust and intimacy. And it determines the longevity of any relationship. In this episode of Pitching the Truth, Gregory Paul dive deep the three major points of how an open, honest and direct communication can impact your relationship where is with your family, relationship and business. Family Affects your upbringing as a child when you have open communication with your parents. It does not have to be monetary support, could be moral support, guidance, direction, and insight. Can avoid further consequences if you share your struggles with your family instead of figuring out everything on your own. Prevents you from choosing the deceitful way out. Relationships You can get what you want from the relationship. You can do a check and balance on the people in your life that are worth keeping. You can test people especially friends if they are worth keeping or not. By being direct and honest with the people you are with you can directly qualify if they are worth your time or not. Help you honor your own time. You can be honest and let people know when you think you need more time on yourself. Make them understand that this is what you want. Just let them know and see how they will react. The majority, these people will react in a kind generous way. Being blunt and honest will make you more empowered in making your own decision. People respect and seek your opinion more. Save your valuable time by being bluntly direct and honest about what you expect from your relationship, by stating you want, dislike, favorites, and passion. You just have to lay you cards from day one. Business/Career Saves your credibility. When you are in your building your career, you need to be direct and honest with everybody that you meet. Never talk smack behind your co-worker back just to try to improve your position. Brings you solid reputation. Client honors every deal you make with them.     Tweetable Takeaways from this Episode In relationships, people do not communicate directly and honestly. Shame is what kept me from admitting my truth to other people because I was scared of the outcome. People are scared to expose themselves. They are scared, to be honest, truthful and direct because they are afraid that someday someone just going to shun or outcast them. You’ll never know when your time is up. So why would you waste it in a relationship that was not really fulfilling or was not really working?

In Your Face Honesty

Can you Handle your Truth
  Knowing you can totally trust one another brings a type of freedom and comfort that helps your relationship work in the best way possible. If there is anything that will bring your relationship down the drain it’s lies and dishonesty your relationship needs to be honest and direct— you also need to overcome your own truth.   In this episode of Pitching the Truth, Gregory Paul dive deep on ways you can do your reality check with your relationship, not only to benefit the other person but most importantly for YOURSELF. How to have a more Truthful, Direct and Honest Relationship with your Family, Friends, and Finances Family   This is the toughest part because as they say “You can pick your friends but not your family.”   Reflect on how you want to manage your family. Step back and take inventory of your life and decide what is important. Talk to them intimately. Be direct and honest. You have to do this to benefit yourself not the other person. Creating a space for a truthful, direct and honest dialogue can create a deep great conversation with your family. If you can lay down what you want, your partner will be more likely to do the same. Do not be afraid to open up to your family.   Friends Take inventory of who you surround yourself. Avoid negative unhappy friends because you cannot benefit from them. But try to change them in a way that you are direct and honest. Try opening up to your friend about something that’s worrying you in a deep conversation. Not just to rant. Finances   Be honest and direct the struggles you are facing with regards to your business. Admit your own mistakes. Ask for support and financial pieces of advice. Do not try to sort things on your own. In instances, when someone asks you to lend them money, ask about their business plan and how they plan to pay you back. It is okay to be direct and question them. There is nothing wrong with that. When it comes to finances people do not pay attention to what is happening and what is important in regards to the drive of the individual that you are lending the money to.   Topics Covered 01:30 –  Greg’s early relationship with the wrong person 05:34 –  Greg’s relationship check with his brother and how it opened up a closer tie between them 05:49 – Greg’s deep talk with his partner, and how the conversation led to a more structured open relationship 07:07 – reasons why men need a solid core group to discuss their issues and personal struggles 07:54 – how Greg’s relationship struggle led to the lost his own reality 11:44 – The Drama of the Gifted Child 14:05 – Your relationship with your Friends, family, and finances   Tweetable Takeaways from this Episode You cannot be afraid to speak your truth. You cannot be afraid to be a little bit direct. People are not getting into their truth because they are afraid that somebody might reject them or get mad at them. Lying, manipulating and trying to create a persona that you think others will approve of is a common problem that people out there is doing to impress others. Being direct and honest and expressing how you feel and what you want out of that relationship is extremely important.   Links David Wygant http://veracitygp.com/ The Drama of the Gifted Child Gregory Paul’s Book- The Truth About Lies
