The quality of information you make use of will determine the quality of your life. Information is defined as the knowledge acquired through study or experience or instruction. Life generally is about questioning every phase you find yourself in order to leverage and maximise the opportunities. The life you are living now is a function of the decision(s) you made yesterday. And the decisions you made were premised on the information known to you. This forms the foundation for every area of your life; career, marriage, business, relationships etc. The state of all or any of these in your life therefore depends on the richness or quality of information you have in such area(s). This post intends to focus on the factors responsible for your current state of life, traits of low and high quality mindsets and also ways of dealing with these issues.
1. Factors responsible for the quality of your life.
a. Environment: The environment you live in has a tremendous impact on your behavioral pattern. I remember when I finished my “National Youth Service Corp” (A one-year compulsory national service to the country); I stayed back for an additional six months. I served in a part of the country totally different from the part I grew up in. I told myself I didn’t want to be a liability to anyone when I finished. The plan was to get a job in order to be independent. When I eventually relocated back to my state, I was shocked to notice certain habits I had developed which were totally strange. I realized the environment has impacted on me negatively in the aspect of my dressing and also other aspects of my life. I had to deliberately talk to myself and made conscious effort to get back to what was right and acceptable. Don’t ever underestimate the power of the environment.
b. Culture: According to Wikipedia, “culture is a word for people’s ‘way of life’”, meaning the way they do things. Different groups of people may have different cultures. A culture is passed on to the next generation by learning. Culture is seen in people’s writing, religion, music, clothing, cooking, and in what they do. It is actually more complicated than the way it is simply put. But for the purpose of this post, we will limit it to a way of life seen through writing, religion, music, clothing and cooking.
c. Education: The quality of learning you receive will impact on the quality of ideas and exposure you have. Education in this context can refer to formal or informal. The lesser the quality, the lesser your reasoning skill. The lesser your reasoning skill, the poorer your outcome. The story I gave about myself earlier made me feel I belonged to the past. This was because my return made me discover how disconnected I was from my place of origin as a result of where I stayed for one and half years.
d. Association. This also plays a major role in the quality of your future outcome. Someone once said show me your friend and I will tell you who you are. Also, birds of the same feather flock together. What or who you indulge in consistently over a period of time will ultimately rob off on you. Before you know it, you would have started acting in a way you never would have imagined. The following post intend to look at the traits of low and high quality mindsets as pointed out from the introduction.
