The “That’s just the way I am” fallacy
Studies proved it.
Every time someone tells you to change or improve something in your life, you may think:
“This guy is right, I should do that…but that’s just the way I am”
Every time you think “That’s just the way I am”, you actually stops yourself from changing.
You are telling yourself: “I may get a tremendous benefit, but I cannot change that because I am not like that”.
To give you a simple example, a lot of people have problems with health and losing weight.
The real solution to this problem is extremely simple:
- Do more exercise
- Eat better food
But why aren’t we able to apply those simple principles?
