People can’t see themselves.
If you’ve ever seen an episode of What Not To Wear, you know this to be true.
And that just deals with someone’s appearance. What about the inner workings of the individual? How blind are people to their own nature?
My guess is that 9,999 out of every 10,000 people have no awareness of their own thoughts. And that 1 individual is only mindful for a few moments a day.
There is no makeover show for someone’s mind. It isn’t as easy as putting on a new outfit.
Or is it?
One could declare, “I am no longer the person I was. I am a new person, one with the qualities I need in order to be successful.”
If you are bad at (and, therefore, don’t enjoy) networking, marketing, cooking, is it as easy as saying that you enjoy it for it to be true?
Can you “put on” a new mental outfit?
