When I was growing up you would also agree that you came across a line saying in a conversation saying “only time will tell and you will be wise with time”, that statement it’s not so accurate. Time doesn’t birth wisdom, its not an instructor, remember not all classrooms have walls in your life time. And growing up I found it a little hard to make the right wise decision, so we going to weave some thoughts together, stay with me.
In the world we exist in, there’s the paradox of choice. We surrounded with a lot of information, many choices that people get paralyzed and don’t even know what the right decision is. And for one to make a quality decision they require good information. The law of relationships indicates that if you treat everybody with respect and trust it decides access, so I charge you to take inventory of whom you listen to or the company you associate with.
All these relationships good or bad affect your mind even programs as well, my question to you is what you feeding your mind on? So wherever you are in life, the biggest danger to you is too much information. There so much fake news these days, don’t be a information waster.
FEED YOUR MIND
The mind is like a car it require the right fuel to move ahead, so your mind feeds on the following fuel:
1. Pictures – of what excites you and pictures attracts a certain focus which requires attention.
I personally work on my vision board, collection of pictures and color pads they are like the apple of my eye.
2. Conversation – quality programs, conversation, books and the internet these channels have an impact on your choices, decisions and thoughts
3. Heroes – auto biographies; no hero, no future, look for inspiration, impact and achievements big and small. Learn to identify those who overcame something and extract lessons from it.
4. Mentor – Here’s the advice that I follow:
a) Expert – Only listen to people who have tremendous skill in whatever area you are ask them advice in.
b) Experience – They should also have a lot of experience. You want to talk to someone who’s seen it all.
c) Empathy – You only want to listen to people who have your best interests at heart. As Charlie Munger says, “you know never ask salesman his advice on buying his own product.”
The most important accountability is your motivation.
All the best.
