Open Your Mind
OPEN YOUR MIND
Too many people still operate with the same beliefs, patterns, and styles of thinking that they did when they were 18.
They blindly listened to authority, accepted whatever beliefs their family, friends, and society instilled in them…and never bothered to challenge any of it as they grew up.
The simple truth is that life is complicated. Infinitely complicated.
And no matter how fervently you believe something, there is someone else somewhere in the world with an antithetical viewpoint that is often just as valid as your own.
When you operate with a closed mind in your 20s, you never have the opportunity to formulate your own ideas. To create your own code for living and find your own answers to life’s hard questions.
And, if you create this habit in your 20s, it is MUCH harder to break later on.
Your 20s should be a time to question everything…religion, politics, life advice, your own goals, your own beliefs about the world, your own identity as a man or woman…EVERYTHING.
If you were told that “success” is getting married, having a 9–5 job with a good pension, raising a few kids and then retiring and you chose to believe that (even if, subconsciously this sounds like hell), you are setting yourself up for a life of misery.
Open your MIND to question everything and don’t accept anything you were told to follow without thinking.
