It has been said that success begins with information from the correct source, and I wholeheartedly believe that to be true. But where does success finish? So apparently success is a two step process, with a beginning and an ending.
Success finishes, then, with the application of the correct information. In other words, it is not enough to simply have the correct information, it must be properly applied. Information itself is worthless until it is set to the task of transforming behavior and therefore results.
The LIFE business has been established to bring LIFE-changing truths to people through the various media of our times. This information is foundational, principle-based, and timeless. But in a way, it is worthless if it is not properly applied to one’s life.
This all seems obvious, right? Then why discuss it? Because obvious and actual are two different things. While it may be obvious that information must be applied to be useful, this is often not the practice. And there is a niggly little reason why information is usually not applied, and it has to do with which of two choices people make when receiving new information. Lemmesplain.
There are two choices people make regarding information coming into their lives:
1) use it to learn, change, grow, and improve, or
2) use it to buttress one’s already established opinion.
In the second case, which is by far the most common, people analyze information and teaching and try to use it to amplify their already held prejudices and beliefs. If something doesn’t fit, they simply discard it. In this way, new information coming into their lives has no power to transform, only to deform. Instead receiving the breakthroughs and illumination that new truth can deliver, these people are like bargain hunters who already know what they are looking for and walk right by all other merchandise that is “not for them.”
For this reason the LIFE materials are not for everyone, although they should be. In the case where people’s opinions and base of “knowledge” are already firmly entrenched, new information will make no difference whatsoever. But for those whose minds are open like properly functioning parachutes, the LIFE information will provide lift like the wind.
