FORETHOUGHT AND FOOLS?

Contacts can be found at the bottom of each post and sharing is encouraged.

FORETHOUGHT AND FOOLS?

All action results from thoughts, so it is thought that matter.  

We are so easily fooled by our own reasoning we often trick ourselves for no reason other than habit, and we have the innate ability to stifle our own thoughts in order let others do the thinking for us, often letting this go on to the point that our own thoughts become obsolete (useless).

Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot (reason), are fools, and those who dare not (reason), are slaves.  Lord Byron

The truth of the matter is, fools are not interested in any of that, including what you say or think.  Some say they are only interested in what you may be trying to hide, but all that can be changed if we use a little-advanced thinking (forethought).

If you didn’t know, you know now that The first essential character (of civilization), I should say, is forethought. This, indeed, is what mainly distinguishes men from brutes and adults from children.  Bertrand Russell

The essentials; are to put in the concern, coupled with educational forethought, wisdom, and prudence to help shape and build the destinies of others as well as ourselves.  Those important traits are essential for a long, healthy, and a complete life, coupled with a necessary system that involves planning with a sense of need and intelligence.

For the record; forethought and prudence are also the qualities of a great leader, but a great leader without Joy may become a huge disappointment, but in any event, there are a few simple things that could make life more rewarding if we were to think ahead.  One of them is Forethought spares afterthought and after sorrow.

I am pretty sure some of you know that there have been some dire consequences forced on some because of a lack of forethought.  For instance: running blindly ahead without consideration; this only invites failure and misunderstandings.

 Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire, but most by calm and prudent forethought.  Thucydides

At some point we have to stop just long enough to think before we react, one small moment of rational thinking may be what avoids turning a small difference of opinion into an unnecessary battle?  And, did you know, giving the benefit of the doubt can save the day?

Perhaps its just me, but it seems as if the people who are motivated by impulse instead of using the thought process are the World’s unhappiest, and the people who have too much forethought, over think everything, coupled with always planning but never getting anything done, oftentimes finding themselves among the wretched; downcast, dejected and sad.  But to have too little forethought is foolish.

FYI: Few things are brought to a successful issue by impetuous desire and a lack of calm and prudent forethought.

Somebody needs to tell somebody else to look and see which way the wind blows before committing themselves to any concern, and remember It’s not how we make mistakes its how we correct them, in hopes that others will understand how important a healthy thought process is, and how it’s used to promote healthy lifestyles through reasoning.

Did you know one of the keys to survival is related to due process? 

In today’s world, due process is a fully functioning BRAIN.  Although some think their chain of thoughts are on point, and they may be, but if their hearts and their minds are not paired there is a lot of in-fighting going on in that head.

Being on the same page with yourself is a must because part of the process is to put all things in their proper place, for instance using your brain before your mouth speak, and as usual there are those who are unaware of not knowing; If you don’t know you have a problem how are you going to fix it?

OH! And if you’re wondering if you are a fool, take the test.

Question; Are you able to admit to anything being out of placed or to losing battles because they were not properly thought through? 

Answer: If you can not admit to your own shortcoming, there is not much room for growth, coupled with, it’s one thing to lie to me, but to yourself is confusing.

Without forethought, we are either brain-dead or our mind is so out of whack that it can conjure up self-induced unrealistic expectations that are normally based on ideas without structure, and an overwhelming unwillingness to learn from others.  I believe those with negative attitudes when it comes to thinking things through, are afraid to be seen as stupid when in fact they are just afraid they will fail, the very thing that can and will hold us back…
