[vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”2/3″ id=”” class=”post-content” style=””][text_output]Have you ever been VERY sure about something only to find out that you were wrong? Where did this certainty come from? The truth is, it is always easy to doubt others, but very easy to trust ourselves. Why do you think this is so?

Studies have proven that we are innately selfish. For example, when someone passes gas, you automatically think that is disgusting; mainly because it is not you. However, whenever we do it, we dismiss it as a natural bodily function. In addition, when we are driving, the person who speeds past us is crazy! Conversely, when we are in hurry, the person driving slowly before us is a menace, and should not be allowed to drive. Isn’t that strange?

Think about two persons fighting, what is the primary reason for this? Simply that both persons are SURE they are right. Actually, both persons are usually wrong in some way; nonetheless, both instinctively distort the facts for their benefit. Their biased perspective convinces them to present their own story as the complete unbiased truth. Naturally, when two VERY RIGHT people confront each other, a fierce argument results.

When we are SURE that we are “right,” it becomes extremely difficult to see or accept how we could be wrong. Handicapped by our own opinions, we can never truly appreciate another person’s perspective.

British philosopher Bertrand Russell once said, “The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are so certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubt.”

So, the next time you feel certain about something, ask yourself…. “could I be wrong?[/text_output][share title=”Share this Post” facebook=”true” twitter=”true” google_plus=”true” linkedin=”true” pinterest=”true” reddit=”true” email=”true” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/3″][ultimate_heading main_heading=”Recent Posts” alignment=”left” main_heading_font_size=”desktop:20px;” main_heading_font_family=”font_family:Oswald|font_call:Oswald”][/ultimate_heading][recent_posts type=”post” count=”3″ orientation=”vertical” fade=”true” offset=”” category=”” id=”” class=”” style=””][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row padding_top=”0px” padding_bottom=”0px”][vc_column fade_animation_offset=”45px” width=”1/1″][vc_raw_html]JTNDc3R5bGUlM0UlMEEuZW50cnktdGh1bWIlMjBpbWclMjAlN0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjBtYXgtaGVpZ2h0JTNBJTIwNDAwcHglM0IlMEElN0QlMEElMEEucG9zdC1jb250ZW50JTIwJTdCJTBBJTIwJTIwJTIwJTIwdGV4dC1hbGlnbiUzQSUyMGp1c3RpZnklM0IlMEElMjAlMjAlMjAlMjB0ZXh0LWp1c3RpZnklM0ElMjBpbnRlci13b3JkJTNCJTBBJTdEJTBBJTNDJTJGc3R5bGUlM0U=[/vc_raw_html][/vc_column][/vc_row]
