Fear is a poor basis for your decisions.
We are sure that everyone of you already made a decision out of fear. We also did that a lot in the past few years. We asked ourselves why fear has such a great impact on our life in our modern meritocracy. These are our thoughts:
👶 Fear plays a major role in the way how we educate our children (sometimes in school, sometimes at home etc.)
📚 With this experience our children have a poor basis for their further decisions. We realised that these decisions that are made out of fear are the ones we regret mostly.
🔁 This leads into a vicious circle: With this bad experiences we become even more anxious.
😱 Many mental problems that are spreading in this decade are the result of a chronic anxiety.
But why don't we fight this bad development that makes us sick and prevents us from living a self-determined and happy life? The reason for this is that dissatisfied people are boosting the economy. That sounds hard but that's the truth. The unsatisfied people try to fill their inner emptiness through consumption. The bad thing is that it works but only in a short term.
What conclusions do we draw from this?
-we focus our decisions on the long term
-we think about our consumption twice
-we try to be less fearful in our life - 3 minutes ago
