10 IMPORTANT SOCIAL TRUTHS ABOUT HUMAN NATURE: PART 4

hands-on-globe-42

Rome wasn’t built in a day.

Political, social, and economic empires do not come into existence overnight but usually take much money, blood, work, and effort over a relatively long duration to reach a dominant position in the world. The US empire wasn’t built in a day and it will probably collapse just like Rome did since it is making the same mistakes as Rome in its declining days.

 

If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.

 

More and more big government is beginning to operate this way and harming society.

 

The more corrupt the state, the more laws.

 

Laws are passed to protect and support the powerful monied special interests and the more special interests there are the more laws must be passed to legalize theft from the public or taxpayer.

 

The more laws the less justice.

 

More laws make those in power more powerful and there is less justice for those trying to reach positions of power. Some environmental and safety considerations are the exceptions to the rule but overzealous safety regulations can lessen the quality of the food supply.

Silence is golden.

 

This is especially true when trying to avoid a heated argument about problems or confrontations which seem to have no solution or winner.  If you don’t have anything nice or useful to say, frequently don’t say anything at all.

Stupid is as stupid does.

 

This just states the fact that unless you behave stupidly or do stupid things, no one usually suspects that you are indeed stupid.

 

A grudge remains in your mind too long.

 

Mentally a grudge can take up much of your thinking time and this is frequently considered wasting mental energy without a useful goal.

 

A house divided cannot stand.

 

This just means that frequently a group of humans, with two radically opposing points of view, will eventually divide and go their own ways.

Being judgmental is a sign of life

 

This sounds better if you say that making choices is a sign of life.  Making snap judgments about humans can lead to many misunderstandings which are not true, so be reluctant to judge a human too quickly. Unfortunately stereotyping people or making hasty generalizations about people is a fact of life for most.

 

A man is known by the company that he keeps.

 

This is another way of saying that birds of a feather flock together and you can generally make accurate generalizations based upon the company that someone spends most of his or her time with.

10 IMPORTANT SOCIAL TRUTHS ABOUT HUMAN NATURE: PART 3

At times your unconsciousness is truer than your conscious mind

This is just a statement that sometimes your impulsive feelings about something are truer than what your mind thinks ought to be done in a certain circumstance where your thinking may be bad and/or uncertain.

 

Severe punishment awaits really bad humans

 

In most societies the punishment is usually made to fit the crime and if the crime is considered very bad then the punishment is also usually very severe. Social ostracism may be the only punishment for a non criminal offense but being a pariah can be very punishing and greatly hamper your interactions with humans.

 

Bad intentions can have good results

 

Firing someone out of spite and intentionally trying to cause financial hardship can lead to someone finding a better job. It can even lead to the hiring of a better employee so both are examples of a bad intention causing two good results.  Bad intentions seldom cause good results but sometimes there are exceptions.

 

 

Rudeness is a weak human’s imitation of power.

 

Rudeness is just one of the many defects of a weak human with a bad personality and it does not necessarily mean that the human is intentionally trying to behave powerfully.

 

 

Hope lasts until death.

 

This is just one way of saying that hope is a recurring theme throughout a lifetime and this is especially true for lottery players who always hope for the big win no matter how many times they are disappointed in real life.

 

Roll with the punches.

 

This is just a bad way of saying that you should not stop trying to reach your goals and sink into depression when bad things happen to you in life.

 

Man cannot live by bread alone.

 

This is just a way to say that there is usually more to life than just getting and eating food.

 

Liars frequently set their own traps.

 

Liars lie that they are doing or have done something which they are not doing or haven’t done.  Their deceptions are frequently destroyed by third parties who tell the truth or the memory of their lies fades and they start contradicting themselves later on and get caught for lying.

 

Just because everybody’s doing something, doesn’t mean it’s right.

 

This should be rephrased to make it more accurate. Just because everyone in a group of humans is doing something doesn’t make it the right thing to do.  Offspring especially have to be taught that just because a large group of humans in school are doing it, it may not be the right thing to do.

 

History repeats itself.

 

This is true to a large extent because new generations of humans continue to make the same human mistakes that older generations have made only in a new setting.  This is because new generations seldom learn everything of importance from the mistakes of older generations. Also historical bad habits, untruths or myths carry on into future generations and make the probability of old mistakes being repeated more likely.

THE TRULY SUCCESSFUL LIFE IS MAKING AND ACHIEVING MORE AND BETTER GOALS

images (3)

We all would like to be happy and feel that we are being successful in life. Few realize that this means making and achieving more and better goals.

Making goals is the hardest part because most of us are trapped in our old and frequently bad habits or old goals which we repeat over and over again and don’t make any progress in life.

The key to making sometimes new and better goals is to research your present activities and determine if they are going to lead to progress in your life or just the same old daily routine. If you find that you are operating in a dead end with little hope for progress in the future then you should change something in your daily routine so that you can escape or improve your circumstances.

This frequently means improving your knowledge and skills through further research and education and making new contacts with humans who can potentially connect you with better opportunities.

Achieving a necessary change in your daily routine will require much optimistic self-motivation which means doing something new and useful and making it part of your daily routine. You can start by prioritizing your goals and rescheduling your time to concentrate on what you feel is most important in your life and ignoring or excluding or reducing the bad or trivial habits in your life.

A better goal is frequently developing a better habit or doing an activity which will improve your life and not letting your life stagnate in old fruitless frequently boring repetitive activities.

The foundation for progress or making and achieving new goals is an insatiable curiosity and desire to learn new skills and new knowledge.

Finally there are distant or ultimate goals which can be achieved by making many goals along the way and you should educate yourself on what these intermediate goals are or should be if you want to reach your ultimate realistic goal.

CONCLUSION:

The successful life is struggling to eliminate the bad habits and old goals which you are reliving and trying to replace them with better habits or new goals which you try to pursue on a daily basis.

My evergreen book HOW TO IMPROVE YOURSELF: HOW TO GET WHAT YOU WANT; HOW TO SAVE TIME AND MONEY will show you in detail how you can make and achieve sometimes new and better goals or improve the goals which you are working on in the present.
