Getting the right information is crucial to your success in life

Information can be described as the process of been informed. When an individual has full knowledge about something, that individual can be described as been informed. Every product we purchase usually comes with an operational manual. The manual contains all the information the user needs to operate the product safely and efficiently.

The level of information we acquire in life can sometimes determine the level of success we can attain. There is a popular saying- “Information is Power”. That is true to an extent because when we have access to certain information, it gives us leverage and comparative advantage over others.

Knowing is not enough

Having access to quality information is not enough. What you do with the volume of information at your disposal is crucial to your success in life. Having a University degree for example in Electronics engineering, means you have some level of information as regards electronics. What you do with this vital information will determine if you become successful in life or not.

Patiently wait to get all the necessary information you need to succeed in life

I once read a funny story about a cleaner who was assigned to clean an airplane. He was busy cleaning the pilot’s cockpit when he saw a book titled,  “How to Fly an Aeroplane for Beginners. Volume 1. Curiosity took a hold of him, and he opened the first page which said: “To start the engine, press the red button..”He did exactly what was written there, and the airplane engine started. He was happy and opened the next page.

On the next page was written: “To get the airplane moving, press the blue button..”He did so and the plane started moving at an amazing speed. He was already excited about what he had been able to achieve and he was desperately wanted to fly, so he opened the 3rd page which said: “To make the airplane fly, please press the green button..” He did so and the plane started to fly. He was super excited. It was like a dream come true.

After 20 minutes of flying, he was satisfied and wanted to land so he decided to go to the 4th page, and on page 4 was boldly written; “To learn how to land a flying plane, please purchase Volume 2 of this introductory book on flying an airplane at the nearest book
shop! ” The Cleaner will be buried tomorrow.

Moral Lesson:

Don’t ever attempt anything without complete information.

Most individuals in life, make the exact mistake this cleaner made. They learn about a certain business for example, and without having all the necessary information, they go-ahead to start the business. The result is they end up getting disappointed as the business packs up after a while.
