5/13 Life Law #2: “You either get it or you don’t.”

Life Stratagies - McGrawBy getting real with yourself, taking time to understand your own inner thinking and behavior, you can determine to develop a life strategy to sort out your life issues. 

Give yourself the gift of time to understand yourself, to gain the necessary information and skills to change your life and then, work on habit patterns that keep you stuck.  Concentrate and pay attention to living.  Aim to understand the fundamental rules of your behavior and then, practice, practice, practice.

If you are like most people, we didn’t learn like skills from our family of origin or from good role models, our education background or from our social organizations.  These essential skills come only with the determination to learn and apply what you have learned.  Wisdom – the wise use of information – is not begotten only learned.  Learning how to get what you need in life is important …. Right?

Be careful of where you get input into your learning these life skills.  Everyone has an opinion; everyone thinks they know the best for you.  Learn the rules of the game from those who know the game.   Just like with your work place or any system, you have to know the rules, know the system and most importantly, your own responses and reactions to that system.  Understand the ‘push and pull’ of life, your own and other’s behaviour.  The ‘good life’ doesn’t just happen.  Understanding and using the power of knowledge and wisdom can change your life.  The lack of knowledge can cripple and stunt your life as well.

The wise Turtle philosophy goes something like this: 

a.  “Before your life can go in the right direction, you have to pull your head out and stop going in the wrong direction.”

b.  “If your life is going to get better around here, you have to be involved.  Pray to God but row for the shore.

Remember the four conditions of the human race:

“If you know that you know, become the leader God intended.

“If you know that you don’t know, find someone to teach you.

“If you don’t know that you know,

“If you don’t know that you don’t know, life’s hard knocks will have to teach you.
