8 Really Effective Tricks to Boost Your Courage

8 Really Effective Tricks to Boost Your Courage | Influence vs manipulation |

Is fear holding you back from trying something new or going after what you really want? Here are some ways to get past it.


I hate fear. Fear has cost me a hefty sum in dental bills from grinding my teeth. Fear interferes with sleep, digestion, and many other things that make life worth living. When you examine some of the worst things human beings have done, you'll often find fear as the root cause. There's no doubt about it: Fear sucks.


Here's what's worked best for me over the years. (And if you've found something else that works, I'd love to hear it!)

1. Ask yourself: Should I take action to solve this fear?

8 Common Mistakes in How Our Brains Think and How to Prevent Them

8 Common Mistakes in How Our Brains Think and How to Prevent Them | Influence vs manipulation |

Get ready to have your mind blown:


1. We surround ourselves with information that matches our beliefs


2. We believe in the “swimmer’s body” illusion


3. We worry about things we’ve already lost


4. We incorrectly predict odds


5. We rationalize purchases we don’t want


6. We make decisions based on the anchoring effect


7. We believe our memories more than facts


8. We pay more attention to stereotypes than we think

Thank you for making us "aware" of this article, Duane....

(From the article): Clearly, it’s normal for us to be irrational and to think illogically, especially when language acts as a limitation to how we think, even though we rarely realize we’re doing it. Still, being aware of the pitfalls we often fall into when making decisions can help us to at least recognize them, if not avoid them.

Have you come across any other interesting mistakes we make in the way we think?

This article is dense, but profound. Worth chomping on if you have some time.
