People look for reasons why they can’t succeed in their goals. In this episode, we talk about how you can stop planning to fail and achieve your biggest goals in life. We discuss confirmation bias, the human tendency to seek, interpret, and remember information that confirms preexisting beliefs.
There are belief systems that control our lives, and they may not be true or helpful, so we need to challenge them in order to live a better life. It is important to examine where confirmation bias can keep you stuck in a particular tactic that isn’t achieving the desired goal or keeping you from trying at all.
Confirmation bias could be crushing your life, and it’s probably showing up through a lack of results. We talk as if we are experts when we discuss the reasons we aren’t succeeding, but you are not an expert. You are not getting results, but you believe that you have the answer.
