Eighty-Four (84)

There’s a lot of talk out there. A lot of noise. A lot of non-sensical bullshit being spewed by pseudo-intellects (or worse) attempting to disguise their opinions as facts. If that’s you, knock that shit off.

Don’t confuse your strong feelings or personal certainty about some things as facts. Have the balls to admit that YOUR opinions (of course) aren’t everyone else’s facts. What’s worse is many-a-slanted diatribe are often offered up with little style, and full of equally little substance.

Having a compelling point-of-view, combined with quality writing AND speaking, is seemingly a lost art in our text/technology and self-centered/social media-driven world. You must have substantive reasons for people to pay attention to you other than just getting your attention in the first place. You must offer value. Value in the eye of the beholder. We all must.

So, have your opinions, state them often, but understand the difference between what you want to be true, what you wish to be true, with what IS truly fucking true. Not everyone will love you, and that’s actually a good thing. But instead of just being a tool for sport, offer up your valid and valuable idea-toolbox for others to pick and choose, and choose to use positively in their lives.

I’ve always found it incredibly interesting/borderline sad, how so many people disregard factual data, research, and scientific findings simply because they “don’t believe” the information being presented. Despite supporting evidence and scrutiny validating facts from reputable and reliable sources, many choose to chuck it anyway. They possess what I call an audacity of certainty. Why?

The short answer is fear. Many do not want/are unwilling to have long-held beliefs, preferences, perceptions, prejudices, and passed-down-world-views challenged or usurped because of the uncertainty and fear that this will force them to face. Being “right” is an alluring elixur that a lot of people refuse to, or are incapable of giving up. Instead, they choose to cling to cognitive biases and logical fallacies rather than demonstrate critical thinking. If you’re one of these folks, keep reading more of my posts, watch my videos, listen to my radio show and podcasts because maybe, just maybe, a shiFt in your thinking is just on the horizon. How illogical is that…?
