Does ‘real financial independence’ begin with changes in mindset? … Do the rewards for individuals and community start specifically with a new construction?
Do we need an evolution of our own personal construction of mind? I contend we need a major overhaul of elements of ‘our education system’?
Should we insist on a teaching pedagogy of mind matters, of creativity and of entrepreneurial spirit or should we get back to the basics?
Does “mindset matter”? Should we teach it or ignore it?
What do you say?
- Which path should our society follow? What are the real pillars of a ‘more conscious’ society? Is our society careless about teaching thinking skills and careless about teaching the skills of deep questioning?
- Building financial wealth for the many requires systematic purposeful action; products and services which enhance and enable wealth creation and which in turn enables lifestyle quality to grow.
I wonder what difference there would have been in my life`s journey had I understood the true meaning of financial independence? Would my now-life circumstances have been very different? How much was I de-powered because of the lack of knowledge?
My education was typical of most baby boomers. I grew up in a very small country town, both parents worked and sport was the basis of life, summer and winter through! I travelled 60 kilometres daily for 7 years from Reynella (South Australia) to Adelaide to complete my secondary and tertiary education. (great choice by my parents!).
But, while my education was classical for the times – academic and exacting, it lacked any mention of business, management and entrepreneurship -and finances. The mindset of those times was one more related to generations/people recovering from wars and recession; about survival and betterment; about the a concept of having more – to escape from a life of near poverty, one of lack of choice and having-to-just-get-by!
- Today, I believe we are more conscious!
- But, teaching and learning practices – pedagogy; political discussion and decision making lags thunderously.
What do you believe and feel about mindset? Do new mindsets need to prevail for the new times?
New thinking, new teaching, uniqueness and entrepreneurship in it`s widest interpretation needs to be championed! … But only if we truly want to have real personal choice, real opportunities, true freedom – real use of time! … to be, to work, to serve, to travel and, and, and… abounding – choice!
