According to several studies done regarding dishonesty, the motivation of a person to lie increases when there is a self-benefitting factor behind it.
Therefore, the higher and bigger the benefit, the higher and the bigger motivation there is for the person to lie.
To prevent desensitization we must be wary of every action and word we speak. It's basically practicing being mindful - the practice of paying attention to our body's every behavior and being present with our emotional state.
Once we develop our ability to be aware of our emotional state we can resist the unconscious desensitization of adverse emotions and reduce the chances of lying repetitively.
Over time, with the more lies we tell and how big they are, it costs us our ability to empathize and be compassionate towards ourselves and other people.
Humans have the power to deceive other people but also the ability to convince ourselves of the untruths we tell ourselves.
The moment we gain insight as to what our motivation is to lie, it is possible we can prevent ourselves from telling the lie in the first place.
