Most of us have been taught to follow the crowd.  We subscribe to “tribal” thinking, which is the thinking of the masses.  It is not easy to break from this type of thinking, or non-thinking.  A lot of people find this a huge stumbling block because they believe what social, political, religious and other authority figures have told them is “true”.  

There is a lot of fear tied up in leaving the tribe. However, you will never experience true freedom or riches unless you learn to think for yourself.  But to do this, you must be capable of critical thought – which is something the members of the tribe cannot do.

I’m convinced that true freedom and riches requires you to think contrary to what the tribe is thinking.  And it ALWAYS requires you to question the beliefs you hold.  On everything.  This is not easy because we are addicted to certainty.  

We would rather be certain about our beliefs than face the fact that what we believe may not be “true”.  But the more you question what the tribe believes the more you will realize that they are hypnotized

Mensen zijn inderdaad bang om anders te denken dan de massa. Terwijl de massa het vaak mis heeft en dwaalt. De leiders onder ons hebben die angst overwonnen en durven zelf te denken in plaats van de massa en de media te volgen.,Het onderwijs zou ons niet moeten leren wat we moeten denken, maar hoe we moeten denken!
