Awareness Defeats Deception

Posted by Fernanda Silva on


There's a lot of talk about deception in politics and business, but it's not just politicians and CEOs that use this strategy. Most people are quite aware of their deceptive tactics. It's easy to see when it happens with others—you might even be able to recognize it within yourself—but what about when we're talking about your deception techniques? That's where things get tricky...

Failure to show hard work becomes a failure to achieve productive results.

If you don’t put in the effort, you won’t get results. That is not to say that everything has to be a struggle or that life should be full of work with no reward. The truth is that if you work hard and are diligent, there will always be rewards.

Even when we look back on someone's life and marvel at their accomplishments, we often forget their time working toward them. They weren't just given those things—they had to earn them by putting in long hours of hard work and dedication.

When people talk about Bill Gates or Steve Jobs being "smart" or "driven," this isn't true either: they weren't born with these traits; they learned them through years of experience and determination!

Perspective is shaped by personal experience and has the ability to change.

We all have a perspective, and our personal experiences shape it. Perspective can be changed. It is a learned skill developed through experience, reading, listening, and discussion. Meditation is one practice that helps you gain some perspective on your thoughts so you can better change them when needed.

The idea that our thoughts are “just” is a powerful concept. It can help you to step back and see your thoughts as just that: thoughts. They aren’t necessarily true or accurate but are also not facts about the world or reality itself.

This can help you see that your thoughts are just that. They aren’t necessarily true or accurate but are also not facts about the world or reality itself. Another helpful perspective is knowing how you feel doesn’t always match up with what is happening in the world.

People will naturally be drawn to the inanimate object that most relate to their emotions or struggles.

It's a very common thought that one will be drawn to someone who most relates to their own emotion or struggle. This is not the case. You see, the object of your attraction will be inanimate and this object will relate to your own emotion or struggle, but it won't be alive. It will simply be an object that resembles yourself or something you’re going through at the moment.

Now let's think about this logically: If you're having a bad day at work because you lost your job and are worried about paying rent next month, then wouldn't it make sense for you to instinctively tend towards an inanimate object that represents those worries? In other words, wouldn't we naturally gravitate towards an item symbolizing our fear of being homeless? The answer is yes! But what would constitute such an item? Where do we find such items? And why should we seek them out?

Take on a positive attitude and you will be given greater opportunities.

You can choose to be optimistic or pessimistic. Your attitude is a matter of choice.

Generally, positive people thrive in any environment, whereas negative people tend to create problems.

To stay positive when facing adversity:

● Ask yourself what you can learn from this situation and how it will help you grow.

  • Remember that every situation is always good, even if it’s unclear at first glance!

  • Think about all of your successes in life so far—how many times have those things been possible because of the hard work and effort you put into them? They would never happen if we didn’t work hard for our achievements!

Remember, you can never know what is in store for you next. All we can do is try our best in every situation and be positive about it. Remember that failure doesn't have to mean defeat, just an opportunity to learn from your mistakes so that the next time will be better than before.
