I believe you have or you hear so many advises for example famous for kids is “go to school get, get good grades, look for a high paying job with a pension, work hard, save money, buy a house is an asset, buy a car is an asset and a job will take care of you”, this is the famous one if a child is asking about what they can do for their life, believed by majority kids as a way to living a successful.
The problem is that most advises change and become obsolete too, in the long run,but some people still remain holding to those old advises. For example, the idea that a job will take care of you for life, is an obsolete and a joking idea today. Things have changed, the rules have changed and the old advising way must change today, we are in the new world that requires new advises.
As true as said, you can change the rules, but you can’t change the people. People don’t resist change, people resist being changed, we are in the new world but still most people are still holding on to the old world rules and advises, and the problem with old rules is you can’t move forward in the new world with old rules; this is why many people who believe in going to school and get a job as a way to a good life, are wandering why the world is upside down today, fewer or no jobs after they leave college, and cheap labour jobs on the market place,simply because people don’t want to let go of old, obsolete industrial age advises, when we are in the new technological world.
What you do, who you are and what you will become will also be as the result of the advises you accept in your mind. Some advises are empowering, while others are disempowering mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually; just be wise enough to choose the right advises for your life. Your lifestyle is the advice you accept in your mind.
