Author, Inspiring Motivational Speaker and Sales Superstar, Tina M. Meitl of Valiant Roar, suggests to those thinking of going into their own business or getting involved in community events to develop critical thinking skills to help themselves and others.
OBERLIN, KS – August 17, 2017 – Tina M. Meitl, Sales Superstar, Inspirational Speaker and co-author of the best-selling book, Success Manifesto with Brian Tracy has posted a new blog on her website entitled, “The Importance of Developing Critical Thinking Skills.” Ms. Meitl reveals that most people are taught what to think instead of how to think for oneself.
Meitl begins with a question. “Have you ever been in a meeting, whether for business, community planning or a mastermind group and had someone bore the entire gathering with a mind-dump of what they think they know about a topic?” She continues adding, “As a speaker, coach, mentor and trainer, I see this happen more often than not which is why I am now calling for those of you who want to start a business or get involved in your community in a meaningful way to develop your critical thinking skills.”
Meitl points out that, “Critical thinking is a skill that can be learned.” She adds, “Unfortunately the trend in education is to teach children what to think instead of teaching them how to think.” Meitl elaborates, “In the educational system in this country we are simply subjected to a lot of information in order to pass a test. We memorize what is needed, take the test and we promptly forget what we memorized.”
According to Meitl, “Critical thinking requires utilizing our higher faculties to understand and evaluate subject matter. It is the ability to think for one’s self and responsibly make those decisions that affect one’s life.”
