The power of suggestion can change what we believe we see.
Everyone can find ‘proof’ to support their views (look it up!), and we dismiss the facts that don’t support that world view — cognitive dissonance! I am not immune, and neither are you.
Happiness, to some degree, is a direct result of reducing the number of decisions we make every day. This is known as ego depletion. Reducing those decisions increases the ego energy we have in other areas of our life. Who we spend time with changes the eventual decisions we have to make.
We often justify our behavior. If we want to improve, however, it’s important to be open to feedback. Rather than become defensive, reframe the feedback and use it to improve!
