Surely many of you, dear readers, have drawn attention to the fact that not all people are equally successful and not all people have a happy life in their hands. On the power of knowledge.
Nowadays, television shows have become very widespread, in which an overview of the fortunes and property of this or that millionaire is carried out, be it a musician, writer, businessman, politician, anyone who has managed to attract due attention to himself. "Why not me?" - you ask. Why am I not receiving this award? Why am I not shown on TV among the list of happy hundred forbes? Why am I not driving this car to this house? Or a number of typical questions, for example: Where did he get so much money, such a car, such a woman / man nearby, such a huge house and the opportunity to circle over Italy on weekends on his plane? I want to say that such questions are asked by people who are in dire need of change. It is this method of thinking that is called "plebeian". I ask you not to hang your nose, dear readers, I have great news for you. There is always a chance to escape. No matter what position you are in now, no matter what difficulties you overcome, all this can be adjusted and directed in the direction you need.
After conducting a series of studies, scientists have absolutely established that humanity has passed 3 eras and is now in the 4th.
1. Age of the Hunter / Gatherer.
2. Agricultural era.
3. Industrial era.
4. Age of Information \ Intellectual Worker.
5. Try to guess what the next one will be.
This suggests that in the modern world it is impossible not only to achieve success, but to simply survive without a high level of knowledge. Many of you are absolutely clear about what is happening in the world of people who do not have information. What critical situations do all those who do not have time to reorganize from the way of thinking and actions of one era to another during their changes fall into? Steve Davis said in this regard: "When the infrastructure changes, it causes a general murmur." It is important to understand that a person acquires resistance to change, only having iron principles and constantly increasing useful knowledge.
Anecdotes and various stories that uplift are not the kind of knowledge that will help or helped you to stand firmly on both feet in this world. They, of course, are useful for establishing communication, but they are not fundamental knowledge, they are not knowledge that reveals the laws and processes of nature and man. Even satirists who write their funny stories rely very subtly on understanding and human nature, and not on the empty stories themselves. Accurate and correct decision-making is always based on reliable and accurate knowledge and information. Let's take any example from life. Let's say you were asked the question: "What gasoline does Santa Claus fill his reindeer with?" While you are looking for an answer to this question, your brain goes through billions of pieces of information and eventually finds the most appropriate answer to the question. And your position in life is based on the same information, your attitude to everything is based on what you put into your head. Your Constitution is your knowledge! But what if this knowledge consists of a dozen anecdotes, a million swear words (and their improvisations), as well as a number of useless knowledge about cosmetics, TV shows, where and for how much Roman Abramovich bought himself a new car, etc. Are you so generous that you can afford to sacrifice your own life for the sake of storing such stupid information? Do you really think that this web, with which you have filled your brain with great pleasure, will allow you to achieve success in life? Yes, what can I say, without the proper information your brain cannot even create a normal dream! And it must be remembered that everything, absolutely everything is created twice: first in the head, then in practice!
The houses we live in, the cars we drive, our clothes, our household items - all of these things started with an idea. Then each idea was analyzed, refined, refined in the head or on paper, before the first nail was driven in or the first piece of fabric was cut. Long before the idea became a physical reality, the mind clearly visualized the final product. Man creates his own future in much the same way. We start by thinking about what our future should be. After a certain period of time, we refine and complement the image. Soon, our every thought, decision and action - everything begins to work in harmony to realize what we have created in our minds for our future. And what a creation of thought of a person with a plebeian level of knowledge will be!
Therefore, thinking about success and a happy life, it is necessary to accept the truth that Buddha said: "Ignorance is the greatest evil in the world!" Therefore, I urge you to reconsider your attitude to education, you will be pleasantly surprised when you look at education from a new angle. Do not limit yourself to studying any one discipline, look around and you will see how far those who have information are. Any conflict or difficult critical situation arises through erroneous decisions. It is only because of ignorance and a limited number of options for responding to a stimulus that all the failures of humanity arise. But each of you can change your story, everything is in your hands and heads. Read all books. All the books we can ever need to become as rich, healthy, happy, wise and successful as we would like to be - all of these books have already been written.
People of all professions, people with the most incredible destinies, people who started out with a pittance and then had fortunes, people who went all the way from failure to success - they all took the time to describe their personal experiences so that we could use the treasure. their knowledge. These people shared with us their wisdom and their experience, so that we, inspired by their example and learning something from them, could amend our personal life philosophy. Anyone who wants to change his life for the better cannot afford to neglect books that could have a great impact on the entire course of his life. A book you haven't read won't help! Any day we decide, we can go ahead, no matter the circumstances. One page after another, one paragraph after another, one new rule after another - we can begin the process of improving our performance in such a way that "today" can become the starting point of our whole new life.
Anyone can do it, and it's easy to do, but also easy not to!
And in conclusion, Einstein's words: "Those important problems that we face cannot be solved at the same level of thinking that we were at when we created them." Therefore, we will solve our problems by constantly raising the level of thinking.
In conclusion, I want to thank everyone who took part in the creation and publication of this article.
