How often do we believe simply because it came from the “leader”?
No one is completely invincible to this type of social behavior, even I am susceptible to it to some degree. There are people we just trust so much that we are more open to believe something difficult, even if it may challenge fundamental beliefs.
I think this is why it’s so important to have a close circle of friends, coaches, mentors, and loved ones who can help you navigate the tough spots of life, the ups and the downs.
This is especially important when trying to figure out the really tough decisions, related to work and relationships. Getting the right beliefs from the right people is critical.
