Survival Of The Smartest
By Nigel Ikechukwu at January 12, 2017
The world has really changed over the years. If you have been following the trend, you should have noticed that it is intelligence that rules our world today. The pen has indeed become far mightier than the sword.
Gone are the days of surviving through the use of brute force or just physical strength. Gone are the days when wars were only fought with just weapons. You hear more of cyber warfare, use of robots, war drones and surveillance machines these days.
The whole world is coming to terms with the power of the mind. The power of deep thought and strategic thinking over mere physical strength. People who have understood this trend are putting more effort to developing the capacity of their minds in order to stay ahead in this era of intelligence.
How is this important to you? Well, you must understand that if you're not developing the capacity of your mind to stay sharp, intelligent and smart, you may become overwhelmed by the change that is silently sweeping across the globe.
To keep up with this change you have to devote quality time to strengthen your mind and your way of thinking. You do that by reading good books, using the internet to check out good websites and blogs where you can get useful information.
You spend your time keeping your mind sharp by learning. Continue to learn about new things that are emerging and keep updating your knowledge. If you don't, the world will take you by surprise and you will find yourself unable to cope.
The internet has made developing your mind much easier. And you should be grateful you were born in this era where so much information is easily accessible online. But the big question is: are you using the internet to learn new things, develop your mindset and help you in decision making OR are you spending it on unimportant things?
Internet should be helping you stay updated on important things. There are many great courses offered online for FREE! You can learn just about anything over the net! Are you taking advantage of this to develop your mind?
The mind becomes smarter and enhanced when it is informed and when it keeps learning new things. There is a popular saying back in school days that goes: "If you're not informed, you're deformed." Use the internet to stay informed and keep sharpening your mind.
Make friends with smarter people. People who you love their ideologies and sharp reasoning. Roll with them and stop sticking around people who never think of meaningful things. You will be better off with smart people than people who don't think!
In whatever you do, don't ever fall into the trap when you think you've known it all. With the rate at which our world is changing, there is a need to always keep our minds open to new and useful information.
Intelligence is what rules the world right now. It's now survival of the smartest and not the fittest! Keep fit and also stay smart!
Till next time!
