False Conclusion

In the process of everyday life, we make decisions after evaluating data from various sources, knowledge, past experiences, other peoples’ opinions, etc. If any of the premises or data inputs is wrong, it may lead us to a conclusion that is not accurate or false. In order to process large amounts of data in the shortest period of time, our brains use previous assumptions to evaluate and make a decision. If one or several of the past assumptions was or has become false or inaccurate, it will lead to successive inaccurate conclusions. Holistic education is the most effective way to develop emotional intelligence and critical thinking. For most adults, unlearning inaccurate conclusions, false assumptions and replacing these with newer, more effective models of the world, data and critical thinking skills provides a foundation for upward social and financial mobility.

A person’s ability to maintain their standard of living despite an uncertain economy, unexpected expenses, health crisis, or disability. 5. Protection from or resilience against potential financial loss or harm caused by others. 6. Each person’s cost of living, expenses, and lifestyle are different depending on where they live, work, and enjoy leisure time and activities. Therefore, no standard measure or amount of money defines Financial Security as it is deeply personal. If a person is emotionally insecure, no amount of financial resources will have them feeling secure. On the contrary, more considerable available resources necessitate increased reliance on the advice and support of other people, thus exaggerating a person’s emotional insecurity.
