Forgiveness requires mental toughness. We’ve all been lied to or cheated by someone we care about. While forgiveness is no panacea, it ranks among the most prudent strategies you can employ to create peace of mind in your life. In this episode of my national television show, Mental Toughness with Steve Siebold, I explore some of the benefits of letting go of anger and releasing the mental energy holding a grudge requires. As we all know, forgiveness is easy to say and hard to do. I don’t dispute that or claim that forgiveness is the answer to every broken relationship. I only ask you to consider some of these ideas as well as the psychological dynamics involved when people make a conscious decision to take the fear-based low road to betrayal. With 95% of the population operating in a fear and scarcity based consciousness, it’s no surprise many people lie, cheat and steal. They don’t do it because they’re bad; they do it because they’re scared. I’d love to hear your comments on how you’ve used forgiveness in your life and how it”s worked for you. Steve Siebold (4:57)
