Perception appears to be everything in this world today. If people suspect, speculate, or perceive something it automatically becomes a reality. This occurs quite frequently in the media. If an event occurs people begin arriving at their own conclusions without checking to see if the verbiage is accurate. Then, of course, the rumors fly and everything is a mess. In many of the TV shows they continually say that perception is the key. If a person believes something, whether good or bad, it only adds to a problem. For example, people may perceive that a celebrity is on drugs, has no morals, is mean or nasty, simply because someone made a remark. Then it blows up on social media and the celebrity has to defend his or herself and often no one believes them. It is almost like a rumor mill. Logic barely exists anymore in the real world. People do not take the time to gather the facts for anything. For example, you may need to make an important decision such as purchasing a home. Instead of writing down the pros and cons, you choose the house because it looks nice. How do you know if the home is in good shape, doesn’t need a new roof, the foundation is cracking, the heater or air conditioning will need to be replaced, etc. They make the decision based on perception and often they end up making a huge mistake. That is why it is so important to check all your facts. The Good Gus Series is available online at Kindle, Nook and Waterstones.
