Check A Little Bit Closer

Can the media teach us real understanding of how to think and live or do we have to think for ourselves beyond the sound bites, and manipulation? Winning starts with beginning to think for ourselves. Ultimately, even the most average or even disadvantaged of us can do it if we get to work on it. Creating advantages and using them well is what genuine thinking comes down to, all else is pathetic manipulation. Look a little closer at things and you will find that this is the reality.

You can make it if you do, and it starts with trying.

Trying is not the end all and be all of everything it takes to succeed. To genuinely succeed, it must be done and done fully. Trying is the "almost factor", doing is the "done factor". Almost does not count. I mean, would almost a home run count as a historic home run in baseball? No. So, why should we expect any different or any better in more serious arenas of life? We should not.

Doing really is all that counts when it comes to solving problems and genuinely inventing the "impossible." The impossible is done logically through persistence in trying different ways until one works even when certainty is involved. After all, some of the biggest solutions have come from the smallest and most irritating problems. Hey, look at the invention of the wheel when people got tired of carrying things.

So, thinking for yourself is the most powerful thing you can do, especially when solving problems. Like comparison shopping, you can get the best value when you think and act for yourself rationally.

The backward thinker lives in the past and dreads trying new things and does not "need to" or want to "upset the apple cart". But problems always get solved when things move forward.
