There are 3 landmark studies that prove at least 66% of people are conformists – followers who will contradict their happiness, true self, values, and beliefs just to fit in and be liked even if it causes inner conflict. These studies prove that at least two-thirds of people don’t have a mind of their own.
Actually, its higher than 66%. Its 90%. Less than 10% have the strength of mind to cut their own path without being controlled by peer pressure that turns you into an automaton who follows the 90% who follow the other 90% who are going nowhere. Conforming to peer pressure causes cognitive dissonance, a leading cause of sadness, unhappiness, misery, bitterness, frustration, bad moods, and all the intolerable behaviours that we spread to our environment when we don’t follow our hearts.
#nodaysoff workout streak continues at 7. One reason why is my pledge to fight the dreaded side effects of conformity, of following the crowd going nowhere, of dissolving into the mainstream until you become an Invisible Soul and your soul becomes invisible to you.
Blessings and all good things
