Seeing is believing? Then why is there instant replay? Don’t believe everything that you see, and for good reason.
When you see something you have to believe it. Think about the commercials. If you see someone by the pool, or at the beach, enjoying their adult beverage you deduce 2 things:
- The Beach=relaxing
- Enjoying the beverage on the beach=relaxing
You then build the image in your mind. But what is the reality:
- The Beach can be as stressful as any environment
- “Adult Beverages” are the reason you can’t get rid of your gut
If alcohol commercials advertised “free beer guts” with the purchase of a case, no one would buy it. Yet we are all still susceptible to advertising gimmicks.
Seeing Personal Experience is believing
What about the latest and greatest exercise widget? They have all the fitness models using it, and XYZ endorsed it. It has to be great right?
If you want to see real results the only person you can rely on is yourself. As sad as that is to say, you are the only person that can 100% say, without a shadow of doubt, that what you did actually worked. Not everything that works for someone else will work for you.
You can’t believe most people. I am not going to say you can’t believe people, but most people are misinformed.
Facts about “most” people:
- Most people are fat
- Most people are not engaged with their life
- Most people are in debt
- Most people do not try to improve themselves
- Most people are wasted talent
Number 5 should be the biggest focus. What talent are you wasting?
When people see talent, they think painting, or singing, but talent extend so much further.
Think about the last time you utilized your skills to the best of your ability, and put forth every ounce of energy to the effort. How did you feel? Exhausted? NO! You felt great, and empowered.
Why is it when you give your 100% you are more energized than when you give 50%?
Because seeing isn’t believing. Your own experience holds more value.
