If you want to be rich, happy and successful, do not listen to the advice of most people.
The reason for this is because most people don’t really know much about how to find happiness, build wealth and achieve success.
This means that if you’re not careful with this, you’ll end up listening to a lot of people who are just regurgitating the same false ideas that they were taught about love, money and happiness.
Ideas such as…
“Money is the root of all evil.”
“Conflict in relationships is unhealthy.”
“Happiness comes from within.”
To be successful in all areas of life requires you to go against such conventional wisdom.
The reason most people believe in conventional wisdom is because other people believe in it and there’s an incentive to fit within the group.
This is called the Social-Proof Tendency, which is one of the brain’s cognitive biases that lead to failure.
The Social-Proof Tendency is the automatic tendency to think and act as others around you think and act.
As a result, you get many people regurgitating myths and false ideas on love, wealth and happiness because that’s what they’ve been told growing up.
Sadly, biases of the brain like this one are very hard to overcome and most people will never overcome them, but indeed, we must overcome them in order to find happiness and success.
