One of the biggest lessons I’ve learned and one of the last topics of conversation I can remember having with my dad before he passed away was on “accurate thinking.”
I’m 30 years my Dad’s junior and since the above video was made long before I was ever born, I figured he had seen it. To my surprise, he hadn’t.
He never got to, however, we did get to talk about its importance at length, for which I am grateful.
So, why is it such an important topic and an such a powerful principle, should you decide to utilize it?
Well, if you can learn to question “why” whenever someone tells you something…it allows you to dig deeper. It allows you to remove blinders and see things from angles and perspectives that you may not have before.
In short, it helps you to expand your mind regarding ANY subject matter and quickly better assess truth from fiction.
This is helpful in so many ways.
You’ll learn how to spot fakes, phonies and charlatans, as well as figure out what’s a authentic, true and worthy when dealing with anything or anyone from business opportunities, to precious valuables and everything in between.
You’ll also learn how to better apply your efforts when you know whats worth tinkering with and what’s worth your focus.
This sort of thinking can unlock so many hidden opportunities and allow you to put yourself in the best possible position to “break ground” and really get to what’s true so fast its almost scary.
In a demonstrative scenario, let’s say you were trying to buy a car. The car you want has all the bells and whistles you’re after and you already know you want it, but now its just a matter of getting the right deal. The salesman comes back with some figures including the monthly payment and the sales price.
The payment, by the way, is less than you anticipated and way within budget. Does that mean you got a good deal?
Maybe, however, my contention is that you may want more information to better assess whether or not this IS TRULY a good deal.
- You should probably want to know things like…
- Are there any rebates that you’re not aware of
- What’s the interest rate
- How long is the loan for
- What are the other itemized fees that go into the monthly figure
- How much money did you have to put down
Only when can you compare something to something else can you determine…with accuracy, whether or not it is good or bad.
That was probably not the best example but I hope it makes the point.
How you decide to utilize this principle is completely up to you…I just hope my resharing it was helpful.
