The Human Mind
In the previous article I had stated that the human mind had flaws, however that was a mere test in order to distinguish those who would want to improve themselves from those who believe themselves to not come under the categories in the previous articles.
The correct way to define the human mind is not that we have flaws but that we have personal obstacles that must be overcome in order to understand and truly appreciate creative thinking. The word “flaw” was used in order to distinguish those who hunt for success and those who passively wait on the sidelines waiting for success to fall in their laps.
In order to understand deductive reasoning one must first become creative in the way we think, seeing scenarios that people who aren't creative enough dont. But to do so we must first overcome the minds obstacles.
Lack of Direction:
To think creatively and out of the box your goals and objectives need to be clear, and that you understand where you want to be once you are finished. Once at this stage and you are clear about your goals your creative mind will spring to life. You mind immediately starts to think of clever and ingenious ways to tackling the problems that arise.
Fear of Failure
Society seem to think that failure goes against growth and instead regresses you . Instead it is a crucial piece for success, it is absolutely needed for one to grow from within. So stop fearing failure instead embrace it, and use the failure to better yourself so that every time you step out of the dark you are a new and self improved person, and it's this mindset that allow people to go on to do extraordinary things with their life.
Fear of Criticism
Fear of criticism, something that society is shaped by. You do not go do something different because it's taboo or no one else does it. But fear of criticism goes deeper, in fact it is triggered by the desire to be liked and approved by others, even people who do not know or care about you. So you decide that to get along with people you must go along with what they do.
Remove this mindset. Be an individual. Seek greatness. You will never be challenged if you seek to please others, seek to please yourself. Seek greatness. Set yourself a target that others think unachievable, and I dare you to go prove them wrong, I dare you.
You must constantly stimulate your mind with new information and ideas, otherwise your mind loses its energy and its ability to remain unique. You fall into a passive and automatic routine that subjects you to the same boring and ordinary life of the common person. The difference between you and someone who achieved great is that they challenged their way of life. They challenged their days. Be proactive. Come up with unique and individually crafted solutions to problems and fear not the negativity and discouragement by those around you. For most of the time they feel threatened by the change to their old ways. If you wake up 7 am wake up 6 am and use that 1 hour to learn something new. Increase You knowledge bank and creativity will flow out of your mind.
Humans are rational beings we all know that. But by being rational we use our minds to explains the world and come up with self made judgements in order to understand it better and feel more secure. So we come up with excuses for what we do or do not do. In Order to become a creative thinker, stop coming up with excuses! Learn to accept that what you did or did not do was a regression on your part and will solely affect your ability to rise to the top.
