What makes us different from other creatures on this planet? Our Consciousness. But what is consciousness? The origin of the modern concept of consciousness is often attributed to John Locke's Essay Concerning Human Understanding, published in 1690. John Locke defined consciousness as "the perception of what passes in a man's own mind". And what passes the man's own mind is strongly related to the person's environment and personal experience what he acquired in his lifetime. As the year's pass, every person creates his own perception and mentality about everything that surrounds him.
The mentality what you have today has shaped your way of thinking, your perception of how to understand all the information what is your brain is processing even in this moment when you are reading this text. Your understanding of things is like a raindrop in a pond, in the moment in which it hits your consciousness, it creates ripples along the years to come.
Mentality is very important in everyone's life, developing your mentality can come with some life changing benefits, like faster learning, sharper mind, deeper understanding, creativity, healthier lifestyle, attracting similar people in your life, better sleep, and a generally a better life quality.
