BE AWARE OF THE OZ EFFECT

THIS IS SO SERIOUS BECAUSE YOU MUST LOOK BEHIND THE CURTAIN BEFORE YOU COMMIT TO ANY ACTION BASED ON WHAT OZ SAYS. OZ CAN BE ANYONE WHOM YOU ASSOCIATE WITH, IT CAN BE A FRIENDSHIP, NEW LOVE INTEREST OR EVEN A PET.


DO NOT SEE OTHERS THROUGH YOUR OWN EYES OF MORALITY. UNDERSTAND THAT YOU MUST OBSERVE OTHERS IN THEIR ENVIRONMENT, TO DEVELOP A STRONGER UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THE OTHER IS ABOUT. DAN PENA, CHAIRMAN AND FOUNDER OF TGG (THE GUTHRIE GROUP) AN INVESTMENT COMPANY, FAMOUSLY SAID THIS. "SHOW ME YOUR FIVE BEST FRIENDS AND I WILL SHOW YOU YOUR FUTURE IN FIVE YEARS" HE IS EXPLAINING THE POSSIBLE DOWNFALL OF THE OZ EFFECT (I CALL IT THAT, THAT IS NOT THE OFFICIAL NAME). IN AN ANOTHER ARTICLE TITLED, 13 REALITY THEORY CONCEPTS, ON THE COGNITIVE BEHAVIOR MANAGEMENTCOM WEBSITE AN AUTHOR NAMED LUDWIG, TALKS ABOUT OUR RATIONALIZATION VS OUR RATIONALITY. A THING IN ALL OF US THAT OZ PLAYS ON TREMENDOUSLY. LUDWIG STATES,


"The mind is much less on organ of rationality than of rationalization. Because the individual has to live with himself, his mind tries to legitimize his intentions and behaviors so that he need not feel guilty, so that he can convince himself that his is making the right choice." (Ludwig 1988)


YOU CHOOSE, DO NOT LET THE OZ EFFECT CHOOSE FOR YOU. RARELY THE OZ EFFECT, WORKS TO YOUR BENEFIT OVER OZ (LOOK AT OUR PRESENT POLITICAL SYSTEM, ONE OF MANY OZ LIKE SITUATIONS) IT WILL MAKE YOU THINK YOU ARE IN CHARGE, BUT IT IS REALLY PULLING THE STRINGS.



THE OZ EFFECT CAN MAKE PEOPLE SEE THINGS THAT ARE NOT THERE AND THEREFORE WE FALL VICTIM, IN LARGE PART TO OUR OWN DEMISES. WE THINK ONE WAY AND OZ CONTROLS THAT THOUGHT, ALLOWING US TO BELIEVE IT IS TRUE. PENA IS STATING THAT THE PEOPLE WE ARE AROUND INFLUENCE US. THIS IS ANOTHER BY-PRODUCT OF THE OZ EFFECT.


WE HAVE THE TENDENCY TO IMITATE THE BEHAVIORS OF OUR PEERS AND SOMETIMES FALL IN LINE FOR THEIR APPROVAL, I AM LIVING PROOF. I ENDURED 26 YEARS OF PAIN WITH ONE OF MY BEST FRIENDS, MY LOVER AND MY WIFE. COME TO FIND, SHE WAS DIFFERENT THAN I THOUGHT, I WAS TOTALLY TAKEN IN BY THE OZ EFFECT AND WHEN I SAW IT, IT BECAME TO LATE, I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO ESCAPE, SO I AM TALKING FROM EXPERIENCE.


OBSERVE THE PEOPLE YOU ARE AROUND. SEE IF THE OZ EFFECT EXISTS AND EITHER UNVEIL IT OR WALK AWAY. IN SOME CASES YOU MAY HAVE TO DO BOTH. BECAUSE YOU ARE ON A MISSION TO


HAVE YOUR BETTER LIFE
