You can drown a doubting person in facts, but if their mind doesn’t want to be changed, facts won’t matter.
In fact, more facts will only make a shaking head shake more, a folded set of arms lock in more tightly, a set of squinted eyes completely close and a set of palms cover the ears.
Most people don’t want to commit to working through the doubt and having the experience because the doubt provides a false sense of safety and protection from fear and panic.
Five hundred years ago, Michel de Montaigne , a 15th century essayist, said: My life has been filled with terrible misfortune; most of which never happened.
Experience is the only teacher that will change a mind and the only thing that will enable an experience is the willingness to have it.
Truth Be Told, the person with a perception will always lose an argument to the person who had the experience.
