Half of society has decided that they don’t want to be told what to do.
It’s not that they don’t want to be bossed or controlled. It’s not that they want freedom. Though, they tell themselves such. Actually, they just want everything to be their own idea.
They don’t ask whether their actions will succeed or fail. They don’t ask if something is good or bad, desirable, healthy, painful, useful, wise, or quite the opposite of all these. They only ask whether someone is “telling them”.
If you tell such people, “Go, thrive, and succeed,” they will fail on purpose. · · · →
There are two types of reasons people predict the future.
The first type is common to everyone—we try to predict the future to see how well we know the past to guide us to accurately anticipate what will happen next.
The second reason is more of the psychopathic reason, and unfortunately is the hidden reason for many of us; the second reason for predicting the future is because we prefer our prediction to become the future. Sometimes, this is called “wishful thinking”.
Believing something will happen and agreeing that something should happen are two different things. Don’t be confused. · · · →
