Society is a very complex place, this complexity can sometimes be daunting. It is very common to run into situations that would force one to seek advice on how to go about certain issues (and there are always people ready to offer advice). However, these advices differ and sometimes literally oppose each other in every sense.
Things get tricky when we head out in search of evidence to support our opinion. It is amazing how we would almost always find supporting evidence, this is because people’s opinions differ, and people only observe to see what they want to see – i.e evidence that confirms their opinion.
The above phenomenon is known as “confirmation bias” and is the reason people side different political parties, believing strongly that their party is right and people supporting the other party are irrational. But this, of course, it’s not true, because people never support something they haven’t found a reason to support.
As promised, I’m going to give you the last advice you’re ever going to need for free. I must admit this knowledge didn’t originate from me. It is always wise when it comes to confusing situations to stick to what works and has stood the test of time, and that is what I am doing here.
VALUE YOU MIND THE MOST
Your mind is your greatest asset, if it’s compromised all is lost. You’ll probably be thinking “what does that even mean?”, well, let me put it this way, the mind is the pilot of a jet, the jet has great potentials but none of these would be exploited if the pilot doesn’t do something
The mind is so essential that critical tasks are delegated exclusively to the brightest minds available. No one wants a kid flying a jump-jet, the issue isn’t if the kid can reach for the controls, the problem is that the kid has no idea what he has to do or what’s even at stake.
Anyone who has blacked out due to excessive alcohol intake can testify of the Limbic self that takes over the body a few minutes before the blackout – the personality that does all the embarrassing stuff.
They are not totally wrong to blame it on the alcohol, because the truth is we all have a latent dark side – always lurking, waiting for the chance to break loose – and that’s why people can walk out of a murder case with the claim that they were drunk during a crime
You might be asking by now “where are all these leading to?”, well, here’s the thing.
You are not what you think you are – a little surgery and your gender, skin color, height and even tone of voice can all be altered, however, what you really are is your MIND,
The mind compromises both the conscious and subconscious, and that’s what you have to develop and protect at all cost
Your mind is the most valuable thing
FEED YOUR MIND WITH THE RIGHT EXPERIENCES
Feeding the mind is the key.
Life is too chaotic to have a fail proof system or idea. However, if you can learn to always learn what is essential – to choose what to ignore – then you’re on your way to success.
Because here is the thing: you need to constantly grow up, level up, and step up. The advice for today may be insufficient for tomorrow (or even entirely wrong).
The last advice you need is to always be on your toes – to always keep developing yourself (with information, practice, and refinement)Dick David
And while at it, remember that all the advice you have ever received, or would receive in future would be flawed in a certain way – in a certain situation, at a certain time.
Stay on your toes – stay 1 move ahead
“The man who grasps principles can successfully select his own methods. The man who tries methods, ignoring principles, is sure to have trouble.”Ralph Waldo Emerson
