They are and should be more than five in number.. I know, but I observed that these five mentalities is capable and is or has been limiting many of their abilities to grow, to improve or maximize their potentials. Here are the five mentalities which can, and is limiting people.
#1 The mentality of not associating with people because they do not believe in what you believe.
#2 The mentality of not reading books, articles or post, watching videos, listening to audio tapes because they are not made by people who believe in what you believe.
#3 The mentality of not taking advice from people because they do not believe in what you believe.
#4 The mentality of not working with people because they do not believe in what you believe.
#5 The mentality of refusing to follow principles because they are not made by people who believe in what you believe.
All are paved around believe.
Maybe I shouldn’t have numbered them, maybe I should have gone straight to make my point that we should learn from every source available to us, that we should not be myopic.
Or maybe it’s ok that I numbered them, probably with the numbering we will observe more areas and think out more areas in which certain mentalities have hindered us from growing.
It also occur to me that many minds that will read this have not defined or discover there essence here on earth, or have not studied their own or their country or their continent or the entire mankind on how we get to were we are today, people that has made it possible for peace, love , unity and among others desirable things that a positive mind desires to exist and grow.
It also occur to me that many are not ready to study and investigate to get the information they need to make decisions by themself, they will always depend on someone’s belief, idea and opinions to make decisions.
But what ever it’s, my idea here is that knowledge is universal and can be improved, but only when we take facts from ALL AVAILABLE SOURCE and give it meaning (positive meaning) through the power house of our being “MIND”, why will God allow us to operate with Minds (ability to think) and allow other beings to operate with instincts? to me i believe it’s to think out and add to available knowledge or call it intelligence and make the world a better place.
Many times we need to get out of our ways to see clear.
Narrow mind, will limit that ability, the channel to increase your intelligence will be limited and more even your service, the impact, the contribution you bring into this world will only be available to those whom you feel or think (not even certain ) believe on what you believe.
What about others, what about those who do not believe in what you believe?
