Why are people so dramatic when it comes to conventional wisdom? Isn’t conventional wisdom a good thing. After all, Wisdom is profitable to the the Wise.
Isn’t it awkward that people think that conventional wisdom is wrong.
If you are one of such with this school of thought, then here is 5 reasons why Convention wisdom is a good thing.
Conventional Wisdom is Safe: No Risk Involved
Why do you want to give yourself a heart attack doing the unimaginable? Isn’t it better that you stay safe. Conventional wisdom makes you enjoy the safe zone; a zone where you don’t need to know much or even stress yourself thinking deeper, just accept and believe in what is acceptable and reasonable.
Conventional Wisdom is Tested: Result already Known
One of the great things about conventional wisdom is that it is already tested. A formula has been created for you to follow as long as you fill in the variables. Conventional wisdom makes you know what you are getting, For instance Conventional wisdom says that:
Time is money. Your life is not important not even your experience matters.
Content is King; Connection is secondary.
Intelligence is everything
Know your Market and Target Demographic and you will be able to get your audience without innovation and creativity.
Behavior is controlled by your willpower. Your environment has no way of altering your behavior
Blaze the trail without inspiration
Money can’t buy happiness even if you invest in the right things.
Conventional Wisdom Keeps Your Expectations in Check
Dreams do break the heart; dreams will make you feel sad especially when you realize that you can’t achieve them. Conventional wisdom is our judge; it’s the voice inside us that makes us face reality and reminds us of what is possible.
Conventional Wisdom Enables You to Live Life to the Lowest
Instead of living an extraordinary life which is risky and is full of uncertainty, conventional wisdom makes you live a life that will never make you amazed or dazzled which to some is a good thing.
Conventional Wisdom is Accepted By The Crowd
If you can’t beat them, then join them. Why do you want to go through the process of being controversial when common sense is telling you that you are wrong.
Now for those of you who want more from life; those of you that need an adventure and are ready to make your hands dirty. Those of you who want to stretch your potential beyond the universe and are not comfortable being safe, you need to understand that Conventional wisdom is not for you.
