People behave

People can only behave in the projection you have of them.

This means that when you have a certain opinion about someone, he/she will act always in a way that reinforces that opinion. If you judge people to be stubborn, then the next time you here them say something to defend their opinion, you’ll take this as an reinforcement of your existing thoughts.

If they behave differently, you’ll first try to rethink it and find an explanation. Maybe you’ll change your mind, but often people tend to stick to their original thoughts. That’s why first impressions are so important! And people also forget that everyone changes over the years. It’s not because you were a internet consultant or biometrics expert once, that you are doing this for the rest of your life. According to employment studies, an average career takes about 7 years these days. And I confirm that, if I look at mine 😉

So, think again before creating an opinion about someone and keep your mind open, because people change! Didn’t you?

Enjoy every day,
