If you learn nothing else in life, learn to “Stop and Think!” When you “Stop and Think!”, you may find that many of your long held beliefs have no basis in fact; they are merely things you have heard so many times that they have become embedded in your brain. You may find that what the salesperson is telling you is just a lot of mumbo jumbo meant to confuse you. You may find that what your martial arts instructor is telling you goes against all logic, reason, and scientific fact.
When people are trying to convince you about something that defies logic, they will tell you that you must suspend your logical thinking and simply believe and have faith. If it does not work, then they blame the failure on your lack of faith. For them it is win-win situation; if it works, they take credit, if it does not work, it is your fault.
