The Power of the Right Information?

The Power of the Right Information?

The purpose of the 7 Daily Nuggets is to teach us what we need to know to live a prosperous life; the things that we may not have learned at church, school, home or at work. Let’s apply what we learn here and share these nuggets with others. We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give. Be a giver in a world of takers.

We live in the information age where information is at our fingertips and misinformation abounds everywhere.  The wrong information clouds our thinking and can lead to improper actions. The right information comes from the right sources. The right information is difficult to come by as it is easier for it to find you than you to find it.

Here is the sequence, the process, where we can go from information to legacy.

1.     The right information leads to proper thinking.

2.     Proper thinking and right knowledge lead to the right actions.

3.     The right actions lead to proper results.

4.     The proper results lead to proper habits.

5.     Proper habits lead to proper virtues.

6.     Proper virtues lead to great character.

7.  Great character in motion leads to legacy.

It all starts with the right information from the right sources. Get and apply the information from people with the results, character, and virtues that you would like to have.

If you want to leave a legacy, start by getting the right information from the right sources.

You don’t have to be great to start; you have to start to be great! 
Start with the right information.

Be blessed and be a blessing to others
