Why pressure makes diamonds

People are hardwired to take the easy way out and to prevent challenging situations from occurring because they cost a lot of energy while inducing feelings of anxiety.

Yet, that isn’t always beneficial. It can even be incredibly detrimental to our personal growth. Pressure makes diamonds, which means that difficult times and stress will teach us many lessons, and force us to improve to deal with these hardships.

Here’s why:

— It leads to growth
— It motivates us to improve
— We learn the most from difficult times
— We learn more from failure and mistakes
— Easy times don’t lead to growth

Why we’re living in a brainwashed society

I like to start by saying that everyone is brainwashed to some degree, in my opinion.

Even the most intelligent and rational of us are still somewhat indoctrinated and irrational. Whether we’re conscious of that uncomfortable fact, or not.

Yet, it’s happening all around us. The government, the media, business owners, and even our peers we consider friends are part of the problem at times. I say sometimes because I’m generalizing, and not everything that the government, the media, and other outlets tell us, is wrong, or poor advice.

Why lots of people are crazy in today’s world

While insane individuals have always existed, I feel that a lot of people are crazy today for varying reasons that I will share today.

That’s not necessarily because our cognitive abilities have deteriorated, but rather because our way of living is not in tune with how we’re supposed to live.
