I’ve established myself as a proper artist. And it’s ridiculous when anyone questions my credibility – I’ve had four number one singles and I’ve also sold over two and a half million albums. I shouldn’t have to convince people that I’m credible, but I’m glad people are now taking me more seriously.
Olly Murs
To ensure that our views are credible, our brain accepts what our eye sees. To ensure that our views are positive, our eye looks for what our brain wants. The conspiracy between these two servants allows us to live at the fulcrum of stark reality and comforting illusion.
