Why Do You Avoid Things?

Says Bob:

  1. "I see myself with a 10-rating."
  2. "I am perfect."
  3. "Anything that ruins my self-image, I avoid."

So, Bob:

  • avoids looking at his late fees
  • doesn't open his credit card bills
  • doesn't check his client emails
  • yadda, yadda, yadda

Bob wants to maintain his self-worth, and avoids anything that dents how he perceives himself.

Why do people avoid taking advice from others?

Status, status, status.

  • "If I take your advice, I am lowering my status."

The next time you avoid something, ask your-bad-self that you're probably doing it because you want to keep yourself on that little pedestal.

"WHY AM I BEING SUCH A BEEEEEEEYOTCH?" you might ask yourself.

And then, you might learn to accept stepping off that pedestal and confront the things you've avoided.

Pedestal.
