👉Never Be The “Bitch” Of Your Own Mind!😲
Never be the bitch of your own mind.~ Tai Lopez ~
Humans have a brain wiring issue. We think we are smart. But, the smartest people are not necessarily the most successful. However, even if you are not the smartest you can be very successful by hiring people smarter than you.
Your mind is driven by deep evolutionary drives. For example, narcissism is a protection mechanism. Your mind wants to tell you that you are amazing. By doing so, it makes you its “bitch”. Ironically, most personal development training suggests you should build yourself up with this mindset and reinforce it with affirmations. But, there is more to it. You should build yourself up, but you have to add another element and override that and say, I am amazing but there is more to learn. So let me go learn from someone more amazing.
Evolutionary biologist, Richard Dawkins famous quote is “Organisms who only learn by trial and error lose to organisms that can learn from others trial and error.” When you are the bitch of your brain, you will just freewheel through life. You may even say “well it’s meant to be” accepting whatever outcome happens. However, when you take control of your thoughts and realize there are things you just don’t know and dedicate yourself to a lifetime of continual purposeful learning your outcomes will be more predictable.
You can’t pound things into peoples heads. The best approach is to inspire people to learn. Set examples that create curiosity and fosters a yearning to learn more.
It’s hard to be organized in life. Dog’s are a good example of disorganization. You can act on the animal side to wing life like a dog or operate from the sense of duty by being organized. Find somebody that is a person of discipline and self-motivation and spend all the time you can with them. However, finding someone like this may require you to step outside of your sphere of influence. This may make you feel uncomfortable. Just do it anyway, it will be worth it.
American investor, businessman, and philanthropist Charlie Munger says “Step by step you get ahead but not necessarily in fast spurts. You must prepare for the fast spurts by learning step by step.” Read, listen to audio books and download information from the internet. If you want to become extremely intelligent, download stuff from intelligent people. You don’t have to agree with all you learn. You can pick and choose what you want to apply in your life’s journey. Choose one piece, step by step.
