Mindset Management How Strong is Your Ability to Reason and Get Everything You Want in
Let's look a little deeper at Wealth Activation Blueprint the four primary thinking processes.
Thinking processes can be: declarative, cumulative, serial, or parallel. The most basic form of logic
is to simply declare something. For example if I said: "this is a red car" this would be considered
declarative. If you observe children from a very early age they will communicate using declarative
statements. They might say something like "That is a big dog."
If now I add more complexity to this statement and say, "this is a red car and it travels quickly." this
would be considered cumulative logic. Some individuals mature out of the declarative mode of
thinking to cumulative but not everyone.
Now let's add some more complexity: "this is a red car and it travels quickly. By traveling quickly
and exceeding the speed limit I might get a traffic ticket." Serial thinking is more advanced than
declarative or cumulative thinking because it involves linking ideas together.
Now for the most advanced form of thought
process let's examine parallel thinking.
Parallel thinking involves having multiple
serial processes at the same time. Let me
give you an example: "This is a red car and
it travels quickly. By traveling quickly and
exceeding the speed limit I might get a
traffic ticket. On the other hand, if I do not
make an effort to get to the airport as
quickly as possible I will miss my flight."
This form of thinking is parallel. It involves being able to look at an idea from multiple viewpoints,
to compare and contrast, to find the optimum solution.
All of us exhibit various forms of thought processes. The primary question is where do we tend to
be most comfortable? When we are relaxed and not under stress how do we communicate? The way
you communicate is a direct reflection of the complexity of your thought processes. The complexity
of your thought processes is a reflection of the challenges you are trying to overcome to move
forward in life. The size of your goals is determined by you. The bigger the challenge you undertake
and the bigger the questions you ask yourself, will directly relate to the answers and solutions you
get. How do you structure ideas?
You will notice that very successful people are able to think of ideas in a multidimensional way and
are parallel thinkers. I recommend that you pay attention to the way you structure your thoughts and
actually spend time thinking about where you are and where you need to go.
