Do You Know, or is This Just a Belief?
SCIENCE OF SUCCESS
KNOW vs BELIEVE
THE FLAT EARTH DILEMA
This is not a Science Article, as a Tulsa Executive Business Coach, NLP Expert, Speaker, & Consultant, I am using my personal experience of a factual series of discoveries as an analogy for achieving Success in your Professional or Personal Life & connect to the best version of yourself. Learn how to Know vs Believe and the difference between the Power of Knowledge and the Power of Belief:
Last year, I was watching a Joe Rogan Comedy Special; Rogan has this bit that he does where he basically points out the fact that most of us are “Dumb People,” and we don’t even know we are dumb; we don’t even have the knowledge to create something we rely on everyday, the Smart Phone. I laughed wildly along with the audience as Joe basically shoved a social mirror into MY face and screamed,
“Hey, James, YOU are the Idiot I am Making Fun of in this bit, you stupid Mother @#%$&! You don’t know how to make a lightbulb that would work”
The next day, I decided to do a YouTube Search for
“How does a cell phone work?”.
Hey dummy, you want a “smart phone,” people don’t even use cell phones anymore. Wow, strike one.
“How does a smart phone work?”
Welcome to reality. This was my introduction to how much I do NOT know about my world, much less my universe, and even less about our cosmos. I ran into a “Flat-Earther” these are people who have even less understanding of the fundamental nature of reality than I have, but who have several pseudo-scientific methods they use to try to prove we live on a disc shaped, non-globular, flat rock.
So, I had to go back. I mean way back, past 5th grade basic science, and the further back I went, the further back I saw I needed to go. Until finally, I discovered the way to dissect
KNOWING vs BELIEVING
THE 2 SECRETS
Once I found these two tools, to establish Frames of Reference and to help guide me on my quest to comprehend the world around me, I finally understood that these methods are here to try to defend my own rationality from my intellectual inability as a mammal to instinctively understand
- Time, etc.,
Eureka! I was finally able to begin understanding some of the concepts that had been introduced to me as a child. What a shame that it took a standup comedy special to show me that I learned next to nothing because I had been taught WHAT to think but no one taught me HOW to think.
I can hear the tires screeching to a halt in all of your minds as you try to figure out whether or not you could prove any of your beliefs, believe me, I won’t put you on the spot like that.
Let me get to the point, I found out that I, along with most others, had no basis in Formal Logic and therefore did not know how to Prove questions about reality and scientific principles in the most embarrassing way possible. I met someone who believes AND tried to TELL me two crazy and false premises:
- We did not land on the moon
- We live on a Flat Earth, not a sphere
Wait What?! and here’s what was soooooooo frustrating and embarrassing, I could not prove them to be irrational; I could not demonstrate that they were being gullible and persuaded of a logical fallacy because I didn’t even know what an Argument From Ignorance also known as an “Appeal to Ignorance” was. I had not learned the difference between Knowing and Believing.
THE POWER of KNOWLEDGE
I felt so powerless. As this person sneered a smug, ignorant grin of victory, I sat there dumbfounded as to how this moron just made me feel so insecure. Why, when I know I am right, am I so insecure?
Because I didn’t KNOW I was right, I BELIEVED I was right, and since I didn’t KNOW how to demonstrate my Beliefs, I was helpless.
Let me ask you a question, what is
Did you guess 7? Really?! Why what did you guess?
Are you certain? Can you prove it? What if I told you that you are wrong? What if I tried to explain to you that everything you know to be true about basic, fundamental mathematics was incorrect? What if I then told you that you had been lied to and that you are foolish for having believed that the answer could possibly be 4?
I would imagine, most people reading this would take this opportunity in the conversation to just write the equation down and demonstrate the proof or maybe they would pull out a calculator and punch in the 4 variables or maybe you might even ask me to hold my fingers out in front of me like a toddler to help me count them.
Wouldn’t you feel extremely confident where this issue is concerned? You are very powerful concerning this problem because you KNOW the answer, You can prove it, and there is no evidence to the contrary.
What do you do IF you can’t Prove it though? What if you don’t know it.
THE POWER of BELIEVE
What do people who Succeed at Goals KNOW that so many others don’t? So many people see over-achievers, success stories, and champions and think that the person KNEW exactly the Path to Success and was able to clearly travel that Path.
The People who succeed at Goals KNOW How to focus their Mirror Neurons. They don’t know that is what they are doing though typically. The People who succeed at achieving anything have already visualized what the END will look like though and that is creating the system that will get them the closest to matching their future up according to the vivid imagery in their mind.
The Scientific Method requires a Hypothesis. You must have a Testable Theory in the Scientific Method. In human behavior, that “Theory” is a hypothetical image or story that only exists in the mind of the person who is working to achieve a goal.
In other words, the person BELIEVES they will Succeed. They KNOW what it will Look like when they do, and they will not stop until the future matches their Successful Visuals.
In summation, I discovered that belief is powerful, it can make many people behave in many ways, but it doesn’t bring the powerful confidence and energy that Knowledge can deliver to you. Begin to study from a genuine curiosity to demonstrate your beliefs. If it can not be demonstrated, observed, tested, and confirmed, then it is not Knowledge it is a mere Belief.
In a coherent and objective way, watch how you think about your future and begin to focus on what you KNOW you want to achieve; You will have much more boldness as you begin to uncover the emotions, behaviors, and results your mind will begin to create as you focus on what you KNOW you want the outcomes to look like. When you face situations and circumstances which question your beliefs in yourself, FOCUS on what you KNOW you want and crush the doubts that come against your Belief in Yourself.
