but many of these choices are influenced by external factors rather than true free will this phenomenon known as the illusion of choice occurs when our decisions are shaped by social norms advertising and subconscious biases while we believe we’re in control much of our behavior is Guided by external cues and psychological triggers that we’re often unaware of fact two The Power of cognitive dissonance cognitive dissonance is a psychological discomfort experienced when holding two conflicting beliefs or behaviors to reduce this discomfort people often change their attitudes or Justify their actions for example if someone believes smoking is harmful but continues to smoke they might convince themselves that the Habit isn’t that dangerous this powerful mechanism can lead to significant shifts in behavior and beliefs often without conscious awareness fact three the bystander effect the bystander effect is a shocking phenomenon where individuals are less likely to help a victim when other people are present this occurs due to a diffusion of responsibility where each person assumes someone else will take action famous cases such as the murder of kitty genovesi highlight how the presence of others can dramatically decrease the likelihood of intervention revealing a dark aspect of human social behavior fact four the anchoring effect our decisions are heavily influenced by initial information or anchors for instance when shopping the first price we see sets an anchor that affects our perception of subsequent prices even irrelevant numbers can skew our judgment studies show that anchoring can impact everything from negotiations to jury verdicts demonstrating how easily our minds can be swayed by seemingly Minor Details fact five the halo effect the halo effect is a cognitive bias where our overall impression of a person influences how we feel and think about their character for example if someone is attractive we’re more likely to perceive them as intelligent and kind this bias can affect hiring decisions academic evaluations and social interactions often leading to unfair advantages or disadvantages based on superficial qualities fact six the in-group bias humans have a natural tendency to favor those who belong to their own group known as ingroup bias this can manifest in various forms from sports team allegiance to ethnic and cultural preferences in-group bias can lead to discrimination and prejudice against those perceived as Outsiders understanding this bias can help us recognize and combat unfair treatment based on group identity fact seven the Paradox of choice while having choices is often seen as beneficial too many options can lead to decision paralysis and dissatisfaction known as the Paradox of choice when faced with an overwhelming number of options people may experience anxiety and regret fearing they made the wrong choice simplifying choices can enhance satisfaction and make decision-making more manageable and fulfilling fact eight the scarcity principle the scarcity principle suggests that people value things more when they perceive them as scarce or limited this psychological trigger is often exploited in marketing and sales creating a sense of urgency and desire whether it’s a limited time offer or a rare collectible scarcity can significantly influence our behavior and drive us to take action we might otherwise avoid fact nine the spot Spotlight effect the spotlight effect is the tendency to overestimate how much others notice our appearance or behavior people often believe they are being observed and judged more than they actually are this heightened self-awareness can lead to social anxiety and self-consciousness realizing that others are less focused on us than we think can help reduce these negative feelings and increase confidence fact 10 the self-fulfilling prophecy a self-fulfilling prophecy occurs when an individual’s expectations about another person lead to actions that cause those expectations to come true for example if a teacher expects a student to excel they may provide more support and encouragement leading to better performance this phenomenon highlights the powerful impact of expectations on behavior and outcomes often reinforcing initial beliefs and perceptions fact 11 the pratfall effect did you know that making a mistake can actually make you more likable this is known as the pratfall effect when competent people make minor blunders they appear more human and approachable to others this increases their overall attractiveness and relatability however if someone is perceived as incompetent making mistakes can have the opposite effect this surprising fact highlights how imperfection can sometimes be a social asset fact 12 the mere exposure effect the mere exposure effect is a psychological phenomenon where people tend to develop a preference for things simply because they are familiar with them this can apply apply to People songs objects and even ideas repeated exposure increases familiarity which in turn breeds liking this effect explains why advertising Works constant exposure to a product makes us more likely to prefer it over others fact 13 the pigmalion effect the pigmalion effect is the phenomenon where higher expectations lead to improved performance named after the Greek myth of pigmalion this effect is evident in various settings from classrooms to workplaces When leaders or teachers believe in the potential of their employees or students they provide more support and encouragement leading to better results this powerful effect demonstrates how belief in others can significantly impact their achievements fact 14 the Dunning Krueger effect the Dunning Krueger effect is a cognitive bias where people with low ability at a task overestimate their ability conversely those with high ability often underestimate their competence this occurs because less compet individuals lack the skills to recognize their own incompetence while highly skilled individuals are more aware of what they don’t know understanding this bias can help us better assess our own abilities and approach tasks with more realistic expectations fact 15 the sunk cost fallacy the sunk cost fallacy is the tendency to continue an Endeavor once an investment in money effort or time has been made people irrationally persist in these activities because they don’t want to waste the resources they’ve already committed even if the current costs outweigh the benefits this fallacy can lead to poor decision-making such as continuing a failing project or staying in an unfulfilling relationship fact 16 the halo effect the halo effect is a type of cognitive bias where our overall impression of a person influences how

disadvantages in various areas of life such as hiring academic evaluations and social interactions Fact 17 the social comparison Theory social comparison Theory suggests that we determine our own social and personal worth based on how we stack up against others We compare ourselves to those who are better off upward comparison to motivate self-improvement and to those who are worse off downward comparison to boost self self esteem while comparisons can provide valuable information and motivation they can also lead to feelings of inadequacy and jealousy fact 18 the observer effect the observer effect also known as the Hawthorne effect occurs when people alter their behavior because they know they are being watched this can lead to Temporary improvements in performance or behavior originally discovered in workplace studies this effect highlights the impact of observation and attention on human behavior suggesting that people often change how they act when they feel they are being monitored fact 19 the endowment effect the endowment effect is a cognitive bias where people ascribe more value to things merely because they own them this effect can make it difficult for people to part with possessions even if they are objectively worth less than the perceived value the endowment effect explains behaviors like overpricing items for sale or holding on to things we don’t need it reveals how ownership can irrationally influence our perception of value fact 20 the B mhof phenomenon also known as the frequency illusion the B mhof phenomenon occurs when you learn

it more and you’re more likely to remember these occurrences this phenomenon highlights how our awareness shapes our perception of reality fact 21 the self-serving bias the self-serving bias is a common habit where people attribute their successes to internal factors like skill or effort and their failures to external factors like luck or circumstance this bias helps protect self-esteem but can lead to distorted self-perceptions and hinder personal growth by understanding this bias we can strive for a more balanced view of our achievements and setbacks leading to Greater self-awareness

yourself a tree in the middle of a storm the leaves May flutter and the branches May sway but the trunk remains firm and firmly planted in the ground this is the image of Silent resilience that we will teach here we will discuss how you can become even stronger by demonstrating that you are not easily influenced by external internal issues and how each challenge teaches you to be like the tree you are not denying the storm by acting as if nothing bothers you rather you’re choosing not to let the rain soak you and the wind knock you down you will learn to be the master of your own fate firm strong and calm in the midst of Chaos in this video we’ll go over 17 stoic rules from epicus a great and well-known philosopher you’ve probably heard of furthermore I invite you to self- knowledge where strength comes from the Silence of the light that illuminates the path rather than the noise of Thunder as a result in the coming minutes concentrate on the content rather than on daily distraction the first rule is be prepared to fail because it is the only way to progress we do the impossible to avoid being labeled as idiots epicus on the other hand has a different point of view according to his philosophy being considered such is one of the best things that can happen to you because it allows you to grow professionally and personally the stoic philosopher reminds us that overcoming is the result of a long path of trial and error rather than a spontaneous reaction for it is only through trial and error that we can refine what separates us from Excellence the second rule is always remember that death is waiting at the end of the road this is not advice that calls us to pessimism but to be aware that death is the final destination of all our actions and especially our efforts once once we have this in mind perhaps we will start to evaluate to what extent it is worth spending 20 years of our limited life saving to pay for a house that as much as it weighs on us we will not be able to take with us wherever we go once death visits us just as we carry in our bag those objects that we consider indispensable for our daily life such as the phone credit cards and our toothbrush it would greatly benefit us to carry a small notebook with these stoic principles because thanks to them we will no longer see setbacks as misfortunes nor life as internal time we have at our disposal but we will acquire a more realistic view of our existence and certainly make better use of our time of life the third rule is listen twice as much as you speak have you ever considered why nature provided us with two ears but only one mouth there is no error or coincidence in this according to epicus but rather a clear purpose behind this reality we are not called to fall in love with our own voice but rather with the voices of others we advance in life by learning from others not by repeating our own speech over and over so starting today start paying more attention to what people around you say and less attention to what you’ve been upholding up to this point the fourth rule is always prepare for the worst believing that unfavorable circumstances await us in the future is one of the leading causes of anxiety and its devastating consequences we are afraid that our children will drop out of school that we will be fired that our spouse will confess to us that they have been having an affair with someone else and will ask for a divorce or that something else bad will happen to us such as going bankrupt the problem is that we fear one of these issues one day and another the next and so on life’s path in addition to reserving good and happy parts for us also reserves a handful of unavoidable problems therefore we live in permanent stress caused by different stimulation each day and this is where epicus comes into the picture since his proposal is as drastic as it is effective he says think that all these things you fear so much have already happened so what could be worse in this way your spirit will develop coping strategies to move forward with your head held high the fifth rule is be aware of the threats of Fortune This wealth that we seek carries a stigma from which few people can escape and it’s not just about the people who will appear out of nowhere to take advantage of our Good Fortune such as by pretending to have feelings for us money has the power to change people and not always for the better once we have this highly sought-after resource we have something we did not know we had and it is from from that point that our spirit May begin to poison itself in the face of the loss of moral values the sixth rule is guilt is synonymous with plague narrow-minded people blame others Ordinary People blame themselves but the wise see all guilt as foolishness thanks to this phrase from epicus therapists nowadays have begun to approach guilt as a feeling to be eradicated from our lives the only way to win the competition against guilt is to refuse to play with it the problem is that it results in an easy path since by blaming others or ourselves we completely absolve ourselves of the responsibility to correct the mistake therefore resorting to it is a Temptation that is hard to escape only those people driven by a firm determination to overcome are capable of avoiding guilt and still manage to take responsibility for their actions the seventh rule is true wealth is found in a contented Spirit epicus had his own definition of happiness because of stoicism and we can see it in one of his famous quotes a wise man is one who does not fret over what he lacks but rejoices in what he has this reflection is more than a thought it is advice to learn to stop feeling afflicted by those riches that are not yet a part of our Lives because when we allow ourselves to complain and mourn for what we lack we lose valuable minutes of happiness in which we could be thankful for everything we have accomplished thus far Which is far more than our eyes are trained to appreciate the eighth rule is incorporate humility into your life if you really want to learn something it is essential that a person learns what they believe they already know through this phrase epicus calls us to make use of our humility especially in the realm of learning going through life boasting of the pride of knowledge distances us more and more from the authentic knowledge that arises from the conviction that we are completely ignorant about what we intend to learn in this way we will look at everything Through The Eyes of a child which harbor as much capacity for Wonder as they do a desire to learn rule number nine is never forget that your reactions shape your Destiny we should not take our reactions lightly as they will undoubtedly determine our success or failure and epicus was unequivocal about it he taught us that we cannot control what happens to us but we can control how we respond to it Misfortune can strike any of us but it is what we do when it does that will determine Our Fate from that point forward divorce can mean entering a world of depression and victimization for some people people epicus on the other hand sees it as a golden opportunity to begin The Path of self- Knowledge remember that what happens to you is not as important as what you do with it rule number 10 is make alliances with winning people it’s curious how when someone sneezes next to us we immediately move away invaded by the fear that they will infect us however we are not so cautious to avoid one of the most lethal contagions we are exposed to daily EP us left us a wise piece of advice about this surround ourselves with people who make us want to give our best because people’s behavior greatly influences our state of mind there are people who drain our energy and ruin our day While others leave us full of joy and vigor therefore one of the smartest decisions we can make is to Ally ourselves with those who bring Good Vibes into our lives while we say goodbye to those who have the ability to make us regret being born rule number 11 is invest in Simplicity why live frugally when we can surround ourselves with all manner of luxuries nowadays the answer is much simpler and more logical than you think wealth does not sustain itself it requires commitment and a great deal of daily energy to sustain this system of luxuries and wealth in contrast when we choose a simple lifestyle we remove the stress of having to meet the due dates of bills loans and credit cards rule number 12 is always do your duty each of us plays an important role in society and the world and the sun does not require praise or enchantments to rise each morning but it happens every day and that’s the end of it as a result just as every part of nature does its job we must fulfill our responsibilities we fail both the environment to which we belong and ourselves if we wait for praise or praise to do our work if we know what our task is and are aware that others rely on it it is our moral obligation to complete it without waiting for someone to remind us rule number 13 is stop worrying about things over which you have no control your opinion is yours but not your reputation you have the desire and Zeal for the hunt but you have no control over the amount of goods you have or your success worrying and becoming irritated about things we cannot control is simply a decision to waste time according to epicus we are called to cultivate those values over which we have control but it is also our responsibility to let go of what is beyond our control and allow fate to take care of it rule number 14 is do not hate those who hate you instead ignore them you are much bigger and far more powerful ful than the person who criticizes despises and discriminates against you so don’t waste your time hating that person because they don’t even deserve to be in your thoughts we are encouraged not to be afraid of people who would harm us because the noise represents a regrettable attempt to harm us so ignore it and develop immunity to it rule number 15 is always extract the benefit from things whatever happens it is up to you to take advantage of it or not these were the words of epicus as you can see it is not about having the option to take the good out of adversity but that doing so is our duty as long as there is intelligence in you there will be the ability to realize the advantages you can take from the situation that has struck you imagine that one day you arrive at work to find out you will be fired instead of despairing and accusing the universe of being against against you you have the option of venturing into that Enterprise you dreamt of while fulfilling your work schedule alongside people you disliked therefore always try to look for the positive in a situation as this movement added up throughout your life will certainly take you further than just lamenting rule number 16 is when you allow the comments and attitudes of others to bother you you are handing over control of your life any person capable of making you angry becomes your master however that person can only make you angry when you allow yourself to be disturbed by them epic tetus makes us understand that there are many keys within us and some lead us to happiness While others lead us directly to emotional ruin and it is precisely this last key that we hand over to those who make us angry the solution to this problem is to put up a barrier that prevents us from being affected by the attitudes of others because definitely each one is the owner of what they say and also of what they decide to listen to rule number 17 is friendship is more important than wealth genuine friends are true wealth because they will be there to support us if our material Fortune Fades as a result if you devote yourself to cultivating genuine friendships you will be making a very profitable long-term investment in addition I to being incredibly useful for everyday life stoic principles are teachings that can help us navigate bad times with interest and resilience as there is

perspective on kindness and exploring the 10 ways how excessive kindness can actually ruin your life one the loss of respect consider this simple example to illustrate the loss of respect from excessive kindness imagine always lending money to friends without asking when they’ll return it initially they might appreciate your generosity but over time they begin to expect it your kindness has inadvertently taught them that your resources are always available leading to a lack of appreciation and respect for your financial boundaries the solution lies in setting clear boundaries next time a friend asks for a loan gently remind them of your policy for repayment or offer Alternatives like helping them budget this approach respects both your resources and maintains the Integrity of your relationships stoicism teaches us the importance of self-respect and the value of boundaries by setting these limits we ensure our kindness is appreciated and respected not taken for granted two being overburdened visualize yourself as the always available volunteer at your child’s School your name echoes in every Corridor synonymous with tireless help at bake sales plays and field trips initially this involvement brings a sense of accomplishment but soon the toll becomes evident your personal time shrinks your energy wains and your hobbies once a source of Joy now sit in neglect this is the

balance between assisting others and nurturing our own needs reflect on the activities that align with your passions and bring genuine fulfillment prioritize these and allow yourself to step back from the rest embracing the stoic principle of moderation begin to practice saying no with Grace and conviction this is not about withdrawing your support but about redistributing your energy more wisely by selectively engaging in activities that resonate with you your contributions become more impactful and your personal well-being remains intact this balanced approach ensures that your kindness is a sustainable gift to your community and to yourself three exploitation by others consider the friend who always calls you for favors never for a casual chat you help but it feels one-sided stoicism

this approach will help you invest your kindness where it’s valued and not exploited four loss of personal goals and Ambitions imagine having dreams like mastering a new language or starting a business these goals are part of who you are yet they’re sidelined by your constant help to others your time is spent on Friends needs and family requests leaving little for your Ambitions here’s where stoicism’s emphasis on personal growth becomes vital it teaches us to value our development as much as we value helping others it’s time to recalibrate your priorities start by scheduling specific time for your goals treating them with the same seriousness as your commitments to others this isn’t selfishness it’s essential for your growth by allotting dedicated time for your Ambitions

who’s there for you you feel emotionally drained stoicism teaches the importance of emotional resilience start start setting emotional boundaries it’s okay to offer support but not at the cost of your emotional health practice self-care routines to recharge your emotional batteries six being perceived as inauthentic when you constantly say yes when you want to say no it can lead others to question your sincerity this habit of being overly accommodating while often well-intentioned may result in a perception of inauthenticity stoicism an ancient philosophy valuing wisdom and self-control encourages authenticity it suggests that being true to your feelings and openly expressing your genuine thoughts and opinions is not just about self-honesty but also about cultivating respect and Trust from others authenticity according to stoicism aligns your actions with your inner values leading to a more fulfilling life this approach is not only liberating but also build stronger more honest relationships while it might be challenging initially to express your true feelings especially when they go against the grain this honesty can bring a sense of peace and Clarity it removes pretense allowing for deeper connections ultimately embracing authenticity brings both personal peace and enhances your relationships it shows strength of character and earns respect from those around you in a world where sincerity is rare choosing to be genuine is both revolutionary and deeply rewarding seven the development of resentment when you’re consistently compromising your preferences to accommodate others it can lead to a buildup of resentment continually setting aside your desires or choices for the sake of others might seem selfless but it often comes at the cost of your own well-being stoicism a philosophy grounded in mastering control over one’s emotions cautions against harboring such negative feelings it emphasizes the importance of acknowledging and addressing them before they escalate the stoic approach encourages you to start voicing your preferences and assertively stand your ground in decision-making processes this doesn’t mean becoming inflexible or uncooperative but rather finding a fair balance between your needs and those of others it’s about establishing boundaries that allow you to maintain your integrity and self-respect while still being considerate of others needs initiating this change might be challenging especially if you’re used to always yielding however it’s a essential for your emotional health and personal growth by expressing your true preferences and participating actively in decision- making you not only alleviate feelings of resentment but also Foster healthier more balanced relationships remember finding Harmony between your needs and the needs of others is key to personal contentment and emotional well-being eight Financial strain imagine being the person everyone turns to for financial help whether it’s a friend short short on rent or a relative facing unexpected bills you’re always ready to assist it feels good to be so generous to be the one who can always be counted on however over time this generosity starts to impact your own finances your savings are not growing they might even be shrinking you find yourself hesitating before checking your bank balance a clear sign that your financial health is suffering due to your constant generosity this is where the wisdom of stoicism can guide you stoics believed in living a life of moderation including how we handle our finances they taught that helping others is Noble but not at the cost of our own stability it’s time to apply this wisdom to your life start by assessing your financial situation and setting a budget for charitable giving and personal loans this isn’t about stopping your generosity but about managing it wisely when friends or family ask for financial aid consider offering support in non-monetary ways like giving advice or helping them to budget if you do lend money make it clear it’s within your means and set terms for repayment by practicing this stoic principle of moderation you can maintain your generous Spirit without putting your financial future at risk this balanced approach ensures that your kindness is a sustainable part of your life not a source of personal strain nine neglecting close relationships in the pursuit of kindness and benevolence towards everyone there is a risk of inadvertently neglecting the very relationships that form the Cornerstone of Our Lives stoicism a philosophy rooted in practical wisdom emphasizes the significance of nurturing deep and meaningful connections with those closest to us it is vital to remember that while extending kindness to all is commendable our closest relationships those with family and dear friends deserve our utmost attention and Care often in the hustle of daily life and the noble Endeavor to be universally kind we may Overlook the needs and importance of those who are consistently present in our lives these are the individuals who offer unwavering support understand our deepest fears and joys and contribute significantly to our personal growth and well-being therefore it is essential to periodically re-evaluate our commitments and priorities making time for family and close friends is not just a duty but a nurturing of the bonds that sustain us emotionally and psychologically this doesn’t mean diminishing the kindness we offer to others rather it’s about striking a delicate balance by consciously allocating time and energy to our personal relationships we enrich our lives and deepen the connections that truly matter in doing so we embody the stoic ideal of living a life that is not only kind but also profoundly connected and fulfilling 10 the illusion of control you believe your kindness can solve everyone’s problems but some situations are beyond your control stoicism teaches acceptance of what we can’t change Focus your kindness where it can make a difference and accept that some things are out of your hands this acceptance will bring you peace and a more effective use of your compassionate efforts in the stoic philosophy kindness must be balanced with wisdom self-respect and selfawareness it’s about finding the middle path where kindness is a strength not a vulnerability remember it’s not about diminishing kindness but about practicing it with discernment and balance if you like the video I would appreciate a like and a comment if you are new to the channel feel free to subscribe to my
