Richard Feynman said that the first principle is that you must fool yourself, and you are the easiest person for you to fool.

Is that a skill you’re practicing? Being relentlessly honest with yourself? Examining your own justifications and excuses to find out which are valid and which aren’t? Do you often catch yourself trying to fool yourself? If not, you might be believing your own nonsense.
