177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class
“While average performers tend to believe truth and fact are the same, the world class knows there is a difference. Champions use their critical thinking skills to make a clear distinction between truth and fact. Fact is reality. Truth is our perception of reality, and perceptions are subjective.
One person perceives giving to charity as an expense, while another perceives it as an investment in someone else's life. The fact is that many people give to charity; whether it's an expense or an investment is a perception. Which line of thinking represents truth? Both. In the minds of individuals, perception equals truth. This subtle distinction allows the great ones to understand themselves and others at a higher level of awareness.”
ACTION STEP FOR TODAY:
“Write down 10 things you know are fact, and rethink each by asking, “Is this really a fact, or a truth I've created from my own or others perceptions?” For example: is it a fact that the sky is blue? Is it a fact you are a nice person? You'll see how often we operate from truth, rather than fact.
