Hi, dear friends!
There is one great mistake that the majority of talented and skillful people make in society and this mistake is inevitable; accepting almost every idea society imparts.
Our collective cultural history is laden with ideas that are not beneficial in many ways.
One way or another, the goal of society is to make its members conform to the pattern that fits the system best.
But this pattern often kills creativity and destroys the longing to achieve things of greater value and higher vision.
There are many facts in this life. For instance, gravity is a scientific fact. Numbers are quantifiable and valid. The earth is round.
There are many truths in this life. Lying to someone is wrong. Tricking someone into doing something is wrong. Abusing someone is wrong.
But there are some beliefs and precedents in our society that are hardwired into our brains with no logical or rational basis.
These are the facts and truths that we simply accept, without asking any questions or undermining them with our thought or logic.
How do we deal with these presuppositions?
Let us start with the simplest ones.
It is believed that if you want to have a financially secure future, you need to attend university and receive your certificate of higher education.
What’s more fearful is that people tend to believe knowledgeable people are often those who go to university and get their degrees.
The idea of financial stability is yet another disgraceful shortcoming of our society when it comes to detrimental ideas that do nothing but slow you down in the progress of getting to experience life.
From long ago, it has been fed to us that in order to achieve success and wealth, we have to work hard.
So, a lot of people think that they have to work 8-10 hour days in order to achieve success or gain riches.
The only way for you to find your voice and make the whole struggle of life worthwhile is to let go of the outdated ideas of past generations that are imposed to us during our lifetime.
Find your own originality and creativity within the boundaries of thought and imagination.
You are not bound by tradition, nor the society’s ludicrous understanding of how the world should work.
Maxwell Martz has a famous quote in this regard:
“It is no exaggeration to say that every human being is being hypnotized to some extent. Either by ideas he has uncritically accepted from others, or ideas he has repeated to himself, or convinced himself to be true.”
Make your own plans and create your own paths… at the end of the journey, the extra effort will be well worth it!
A BIG HUG!
