5 reasons gaining more experience can be really bad for you

By M.Farouk Radwan, MSc.

I want to gain experience

The first thing you will get told when you talk to people who just began their career is that they want to gain some experience. Not to get me wrong i have to first state that gaining experience is one of the most important steps a person can take to enhance his career but there is a small trick in here.

If you didn't collect experience the right way you might end up with false experiences that ruins your life and future. Think about it for a moment, we collect new facts through our senses before our brains does some processing to those facts.

Now what if something went wrong during the processing phase? What if some incorrect facts were added up in your mind?

5 reasons most experienced people make horrible decisions

  • 1) Remember when everything was possible?: Do you remember when you thought that everything was possible? We are born with a mind that can do the impossible but many people start putting false limitations to their potential then call it experience. When you were young you thought that everything is possible but as you kept growing up and acquiring false experiences you started to believe that your powers are limited
  • 2) It can't be done in a different way: One of the horrible things that happen to many people as they gain more experience is that they lose creativity and start to think that there is only one soloution to each problem. After all if you have been doing the same things for 10 years then it might be very hard to convince your mind that there is a much better way of doing them
  • 3) Experience and helplessness: In my book, The ultimate guide to getting over depression i said that depression can be the result of false experience. After all when you believe that you are stuck, helpless and have no way out then certainly your mind will respond with depression. The rules we learn as we grow up make us more helpless in the face of life problems and can be the main reason we get depressed later on
  • 4) Arrogance & inflexibility: The more experience a person gets the more arrogant he becomes and the less flexible he is likely to be. This is why so many of the so called experienced people take horrible decisions and live miserable lives. The problem with believing that you are always right can easily lead to catastrophic choices
  • 5) Experience and pessimism: Once you assume that life will always work the same way it always worked for you before you will open the door for pessimism. A failed business will be a strong indication that you will never make it, an unfortunate past will be a sign that you will never find happiness and so on.

Collect experience the right way

Experience is a great thing but when it's collected the right way. You need to filter whatever you are learning to make sure that you are not filling your brain with junk. A false belief should be discarded instead of being considered a fact.

You should also examine what you learned so far and find out whether you have inserted some false facts in your mind under the name of experience. Many of the limitations that are holding you back today are just the result of false beliefs that were labeled experience.
