We all lie. Studies have shown that people lie an average of 3 times in a 10 minute conversation. But what are the consequences of lying to yourself or others for extended periods of time? What happens to you when you hold on to BIG secrets? According to Bruce Muzik, you become numb; you lose your 'aliveness' when you are forced to lie about who you are and present yourself to the world as something you are not. The consequences of keeping our secrets far outweigh the consequences of telling the truth. In this candid TEDx talk, Muzik shares some of his biggest secrets and assures us that when we share our truth with others, we empower the to find their own peace.
