The Variables Of Life

Where you are right now is a sum total of your starting point, your character and your environment.

Our character, personality traits, behavioural patterns, level of awareness, and decision-making skills form a set of variables that define the outcome of our life. Another set of variables is what we get in our environment, like our upbringing, and the people around us.

  1. Get rid of the Television.
  2. Find a positive person or a mentor to help you reach your goals faster.
  3. Delete your Facebook, Instagram and Twitter Accounts.
  4. Stop spending time with people who drain your energy.
  5. Sell your car and get a bike.

We may not have control over most of the factors of our environment, but the more we understand ourselves, getting aware of our personal power and learning the required life lessons to humble us, the more capable we get at influencing our own environment.

Some factors will stay the same no matter what we do, and it is a good idea to change our mindset about them, and decide to see things differently. We can redesign our environment or redesign our thinking.

Good environments are a blend of talent, technology, tolerance, transparency and transcendence.

  1. A place that makes you shine and brings out the best in you.
  2. Encourages you to make smart, right choices every day, like saving money by riding a bicycle, or eating an apple instead of a pack of Lays.
  3. Promotes moving towards good decisions and accelerating your success.

Our environment, the people and all the external elements around us can be influenced with varying degrees. It is easy to replace the car we have, as compared to switching to a different company. Family culture, market trends and political/social/economical factors are the hardest to change or influence.

Learning about what is easy to change and what is not is important before we try to influence, replace, remove or tinker with any of the environmental factors.

We can impact our environment by simply changing the way we behave and react.

  1. Stop fighting with family members.
  2. Stop resisting the market trends, and adjust our actions instead.
  3. Build a strategy to work with the system we are in, and the law of the land.
  4. Remember that the more successful we want to be, the more support we need from our environment.
  1. Join a social club, gym or a business club.
  2. Find a new spouse, who is a better fit for your life.
  3. Switch to a job where your talents are better appreciated and where you like doing what you do.
  4. Change your career altogether.
  5. Move to a different country.
