The world is complex.
The human mind can’t really understand it.
So it creates simple ideas of it.
We act on those ideas.
Take the quote, “trust yourself more and others less”
This seems like a blanket statement that would work in most but not all situations.
It’s a tool that corrects our human tendency to follow others and doubt ourselves.
This won’t always happens but it happens most of the time.
So although the statement is False, it is still a deeply powerful tool.
Same for these statements:
“Either it’s a hell yeah or a no”
“Human potential is limitless”
What else can you add to this?
