Ideology is subconscious programming, forged primarily in the fires of childhood.

We typically pick up our ideologies from our parents. But we can also forge ideologies during our lives through the influence of other respected family members, friends, peers, teachers, the neighborhood in which we live, books, media, etc.

When you are anchored in ideology, that can be a good thing or a bad thing.

Success ideologies are those which are anchored in love, optimism, open-mindedness, respect for others opinions, a desire to grow, improve, achieve, good health habits and which stimulate you to forge relationships with other individuals who share likeminded ideologies.

Failure ideologies are those which anchor you in anger, hate, negativity, pessimism, hopelessness, dependency, blame, inaction and poor health habits. The unsuccessful forge relationships and have a habit of surrounding themselves with others who share likeminded ideologies.

  • Big Government/Statism
  • Crony Capitalism
  • Racism
  • Political Correctness/Group Think
  • Discrimination

Examples of Ideologies That Lead to Success/Wealth

With respect to success, any ideology which encourages freedom of thought, speech or action is generally a good ideology because success depends on freedom.

    Your failure ideologies describes our ANC government and their followers in South Africa to the tee. The result is there for all to see. Zimbabwe is the end result if anyone needs a picture of these failure ideologies.

    Americans, don’t let this rot take over the mindset of your youth.
