This quote is for me literally something to live by ‘Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth’. We need constant reminding of these as we have SO many cognitive biases that are shadowing our every interaction with the world. Yet, at times hilariously, we fancy ourselves as rational beings. Most of these biases, our ideas of the world and who we are within it, were formed before we turned seven. So it’s from a rather unsophisticated standpoint that we navigate our lives if we break it down.
Experimenting is fluid and there’s less pressure. Additionally, we are less likely to form expectations and ideas and block ourselves to better outcomes that are trying to come through. Things that we miss because we had an agenda.
Keep this in mind all this week and see how open to peeling back opinions and perspectives you can be, and then experiment and have some fun.
Sent with love,
