We are all governed by our thoughts.
But our thoughts are different.
Every strata and sub-culture has its own thought and language.
For instance, the blue collar sector has a very specific way of thinking.
And the white collar sector has a very specific way of thinking.
Hint: they are completely different ways of thinking.
Nothing wrong with either one, as long as its where you want to be.
If its not where you want to be, change your thinking first.
The rest will then follow along naturally.
