The Power Of Information

We are living in the information age now. The internet makes it easy for us to share and obtain information. This is a great benefit because we can get what we want in just a matter of milliseconds. The information age also helps people to get richer and smarter faster.

Billionaires are getting younger. Mark Zuckerberg, owner of Facebook, became a billionaire in his 20s. Alex who is 21 created history by creating a website that contains 1,000,000 pixels and selling them for $1 each. He managed to sell out each pixel and became a millionaire in the process. This is the power of the information age and the people who have the right information can succeed in just a short amount of time. You can read more about Alex over here.

You Need Better Information To Achieve Better Results

Everything you want to do it better, you need better information. If you want better information, you can simply visit the library to search for books. Even better, search for the information online. Everything takes place online right now and you can have valuable information at your fingertips by searching for it on Google.

Most people are not making full use of the internet. They are searching for entertainment instead of valuable information.(Think Youtube and Facebook) You are misusing the power of the internet if you indulge in online entertainment. There are people who make money online or get valuable information to improve some aspect of their life. Isn’t it a waste if you are only using it purely for entertainment and miss out on those improvements that you can make? (I believe you are not since you are reading this personal development blog now.)

To improve any aspect of our life, we need to find better information so that we can use it to do things in a better way. I am always looking for information to help me to be more productive, earn more money, build up a successful business and improve my relationship etc. This is a great habit to have because if you are constantly searching for improvements, you will make improvements.

If you want to lose weight, make a conscious decision to find better information to lose weight. If you are not satisfied with your financial circumstances, find new and better information to improve it. Information is within your grasp and all you need to do is to search for it. Once you are committed to search for better information to improve any aspect of your life, that aspect of your life will definitely improves.

Better Information = Better Quality Of Life

Be aware of where you are getting your information. You tend to suffer if you get the wrong information and apply it. Investors who get the wrong information about a company will make huge losses if they invest in them. Others can give you the wrong information.

Someone can give you a health tip that says eating chocolates everyday is good for the heart. If you believe it, you are seriously in trouble. I would rather believe in the old proverb, an apple a day keeps the doctor away instead of a chocolate a day keeps the heart healthy. It just make more sense to me.

Make good judgment when you are picking your information.

The rich get richer because they have the right information. They are financially educated, they know what to invest in and what to avoid. They have the right information that can help them to keep growing their net worth and this is why they are rich.

The poor continues to stay poor because they lack the information to be rich. I do not mean insider-trading tips when I say information. It is simply better information to save money, invest, being frugal and be financially educated.

Parting Words

There is definitely some aspects of our life that we want to make improvements. With better information, it is definitely possible. Make it a habit to obtain better information everyday on what you are planning to improve on. Correct information is wealth. Being able to obtain them easily in the information age is the edge that we have right now.

  1. I’m always online learning new things and researching… the only problem though is information overload, so it’s hard to decide when to find information and when to simply turn off the computer. At the end of the day we really only need to know a few things to be successful and accomplish our tasks… there’s a lot of noise in between, so it’s becoming a bit of an art to learn how to find only what you need and ignore the rest.

    Good point! I would also say this about people in that the people you surround yourself with will also affect whether or not the information they give you can affect you positively or negatively. There will be people who give you correct and honest information and there will be others who lead you down the wrong path just like the info on the internet.

      The people we surround ourselves with can determine where we will be in the future. You have noted a great point! We need to surround ourselves with people who provide great information rather than bad information. This way we can benefit from the good information and do something about it to help us enhance any aspect of our life.

    I definately agree with your opinion.This information age makes online business possible.It provides me with a kind of lifestyle even a new version of world view that is less inclined to be narrow thinking. As so much useful information available online and in the bookstore,it is urgent to be wise enough to pick up and apply it in our life.

    I agree Vincent. There’s so much information out there on the internet that I’d guess over 50% of it is bad information. Information is good as long as it’s good information. Good information leads to useful knowledge, useful knowledge leads to good results, and good results lead to a better quality of life!

      Hi Hulbert,

      There are really to much bad information over the internet. That is why we need to exercise our good judgment before deciding whether the information is good or bad for us.
