The Psychology of Beliefs: Why Change Is So Hard

The Psychology of Beliefs: Why Change Is So Hard

By Rob Dial

In this episode, we're going to explore how our beliefs, whether they're about ourselves, politics, religion, or even our favorite sports teams, often stem from thoughts we've repeated so much that they feel like solid truths. But here's a fun fact: just because we believe something, doesn't make it an absolute fact. Mind-blowing, right?

We'll also chat about why our brains aren't big fans of inconsistency and how this leads us to resist ideas that clash with our beliefs. Ever found yourself rationalizing or trivializing something just to keep your belief boat from rocking? We've all been there, and I'll share why that happens!

Plus, we'll get into the nitty-gritty of cognitive dissonance and how our beliefs tie into our identity. It's fascinating how we can align ourselves so strongly with a political party, religion, or even a sports team, and how challenging these beliefs can feel like shaking the very ground we stand on.

And remember, nothing changes if we don't change. Let's do this!
