Most of us have been deceived. In fact, probably ALL of us have at one point or another. In fact, as it is happening, I can sometimes feel a “spirit of confusion” happening.

A salesperson will be talking to me, and they will say one thing, and then when they present the contract to sign, it will be different. I have a sense of “feeling dumb” if I ask any more questions. In fact, this person has been stroking my ego the whole time, and I would seem like a complete BABOON if I begin to question all over again.

After all, my PRIDE is at stake.

In the above example, I have literally paid thousands of dollars to a phone company advertisement firm because of this. The person responsible took their commission and quit, and the phone company would not rescind on the contract. Now that I know about the principles of deception, this will hopefully never happen again.

 

How have YOU been deceived recently, or in the past, and how did it affect your life?
