Some of the biggest misconceptions of the self-awareness community are that it is something you will find in some books or in some lectures that you hear in college. While these things are true in a general sense, they are also things very few get. I recently got the privilege to sit in on a lecture I had never heard of called Noice. The lecture was given by a man named Josh Fisch, author of the book The Noice Theory of the Self.
In the lecture the man showed us a series of little videos on YouTube which showed us that our thoughts are an amalgam of our actions and our responses. He showed how our thoughts are like a movie; when we watch it in a movie theater we get a film that is mostly good. The same goes when we watch our thoughts on YouTube, but from our perspective it’s all bad.
Noice is the name of the podcast that was created by the creators of the first Noice, Gernot Fisch, with the help of a friend of mine.
The podcast is about how we are not what we think we are, but how we are what we think we are. The idea is that we are all a mixture of our experiences and our responses. The more we think and see ourselves as something that we think we are, the less we are, and the more we are something that we don’t think we are.
Its hard to put into words how Noice feels, but its like the difference between thinking that you are the perfect version of yourself and actually being really, really, really, really, really happy with yourself. It’s like, “What’s wrong with me that my life is so perfect?” Instead of being a perfectly perfect version of ourselves, we are just what we think we are.
It’s weird being the person who’s really happy, but not so sure about that. It might sound crazy, but you know how happy you are and yet you feel like a complete failure? This feeling is called a “flip.” People who have this feeling tend to obsess over their perfection, and so they are a lot more likely to be unhappy than people who don’t have this feeling.
I have this feeling of inadequacy every single time I go through something hard or frustrating. I know that I could do it better, I could be better, I could be a better person, I could be a better person I could be more. If I could be better, I could be more. If I could be better, I could be a better person. I dont know.
I’ve been telling people for years that no one could possibly be more perfect than me. I’ll have a huge list of things that I could do better, but I’ll never be a better person because I’m not perfect. And that’s okay. Because as a person with a feeling of inadequacy, I can’t help but feel more and more worthless, and I see that as a sign of how truly great I am.
It’s funny because I am so often criticized for being a better person than I actually am.
I think this is the first time I’ve ever heard anyone say that. I wonder if they actually mean it. I’m also not sure if being a better person is a thing.
