It’s Important for Youngsters to Review Their Thinking Assumptions and Biases to Succeed in Life

Knowingly or unknowingly our approach to our life is based on our experience and the thinking we believe is correct. The belief system that is chosen by the individual is one of the many options. There is nationalist belief system, left liberal belief system, non-aligned belief system, pro-business belief system, allopathy is better belief system, to name a few.

A person’s receptivity to an idea or approach is determined by their previous experience and belief system. Having wrong assumptions make it difficult to learn new good approaches and concepts. In this article a few such wrong approaches are explored.
