Prejudice is a state of belief and perception that is created by past experiences resulting in certain emotions that now resides in our subconscious mind and directs how we make decisions every moment.
We often recruit our past selves and consciousness to influence our perspective to how we make decisions in the present and for future purposes.
It isn’t so much of a wonder because the brain by default is trained to build memory and our memories are primarily stored information of past experiences.
By using the stored archive of our past experiences to influence how we make decisions in the present and for the future is the extent to how our state of belief and perception directs how we make decisions.
Though this has its place and benefits, it also has its consequences because making present and future-based sensitive decisions based on experiences of the past that has been accumulated over the years and stored as memories, we by so doing eliminate our focus to explore new possibilities, new vistas, high-level objectivity and creative approaches to filter from many options to make a decision.
We all have a prejudice in our approach to life, business and decision making, but we however can reduce our error rate, make better and improved decisions and avoid the consequences of making a wrong decision when we consciously enhance our state of belief and perception.
One significant way to accomplish that is to be studious of new processes and receptive of uncommon approaches to getting things done, as long as they do not override the bothers of morality and legal standards.
Prejudice exists, but so also is your ability to build a new state of belief and perception.
