The things, in my life, that I have the most remorse about are the times when i didn’t follow my gut!
I believer that we are all blessed with the power of doubt. The problem is that we discount what our gut is telling us. When someone is overly friendly it might feel good, but chances are that they are after something we have and intend to take it from us. And yet, even though, I know this I find it difficult to resist someone who seems to like me.
We all do! I think that most people know that when someone smiles at us they are likely to be con artists or predators and yet we enjoy bring smiled at. Serial killers always smile at their victims a split second before they strike in the same way a snake does and serial killers seem to have no problem finding willing victims!
If an animal shows us it’s teeth we back away yet when a human does it we are drawn to them, when smiling means the same thing in both species. Hookers always give a man a smile before they take him down for money and, if they can, steel his watch while there at it! Lotharios do the same to women and even though women are bright ceatures they tend to fall for it more often than not!
That sick feeling one gets immediately before they sign a contract is our sensory perception trying to tell us something. And because we don’t want to seem rude to the other party we sign it anyway.
It can not be stressed enough that we should all be wary, in life. It is not the dislikable people we should be afraid of, it is the likable! Ted Bundy was an extremely likable person and he murdered thirty women!
We must also be clever enough to appreciate genuine kindness which can be recognized by the courteous, straight forward and serious manner, in which it is offered. If you’re hanging off of the edge of a cliff and someone is about to pull you up to safety I guarantee that they will not be smiling when they do it. I can also guarantee you that during that split second before someone puts a bullet behind your ear they will be smiling!
Remember that only evil come easily!
