Ideas that work and ideas that don't (Part 2 of 9)


Are your ideas helping you to improve your life? Are your beliefs promoting fear or prompting you to take effective action? Have you acquired a clear view of the world?

Can you see reality without the distortions of wishful thinking? Can you face life without envy and discouragement? Are your convictions hindering or supporting your motivation?

We can define ideas that work as those that allow us to identify problems, analyse their causes, and figure out workable solutions.

Worthless opinions are those that render us insensitive to danger, lead us to react irrationally to difficulties, and contaminate our emotions with anger or anxiety. Counter-productive views are those that sabotage our initiatives and waste our potential.
