Cognitive Dissonance: Conflicting Beliefs and Actions

September 14, 2021

Ep #114 - You know how you feel when your actions don't match up with what you say you are doing in your life, or when you believe you are a good person and then you gossip about someone, or you think you are a good student but then you go out and drink the night before a test - or like, literally, before the test.

This energy you feel inside of you, this disharmony inside of you is called "Cognitive Dissonance." You know when you feel this. You can lie all you want to the outside world but you conscious and unconscious mind are watching - they know better than believe the lies you try to tell them.

There is a way out of this distortion. There is a simple 3-step process that you can use today to begin to bring harmony between what you say and what you do.

You can keep blindly going about life expecting everything to just "sunshine on a dog's butt" kinda way - or you can actively seek and pursue your highest sense of self.

Either way time is going to move forward. Wouldn't you rather be sitting in your seat of personal power rather than being tooled around by a conflict between what you say versus what you do?

Stand up, step forward, raise your hand - it's your turn, I will call on you.
