Detecting Bad Influences

Everyone is influenced to some degree by the cultures, ideologies, religions, philosophies, and other stories that they have been exposed to.

In some cases, this is a good thing.

In other cases, it holds you back.

Which raises the question:

How do you figure out which influences are holding you back?

One way might be to look at your activities coming up for the day, notice which you are excited about and which you are dreading, and then ask yourself why you’re planning to do things you dread.

Do this for a week or two, and I think you might start to find some clues.
