How to See Character Flaws in others - The Law of Compulsive Behaviour from The Laws of Human Nature by Robert Greene
“ When choosing people to work and associate with, do not be mesmerized by their reputation or taken in by the surface image they try to project. Instead, train yourself to look deep within them and see their character. People’s character is formed in the earliest years and by their daily habits. It is what compels them to repeat certain actions in their lives and fall into negative patterns. Look closely at such patterns and remember that people never do something just once. They will inevitably repeat their behaviour.” Robert Greene Diane Discusses: - Why you need to know about the Law of Compulsive Behaviour - Why you should care and why it's important - How our character is formed and when it begins You will Learn: - How to recognize molded habits - What you can do to upgrade your Character - When your values & morals are clear, the decisions you need to make, the actions you need to take are so much easier Episodes mentioned: 035 - Science behind staying patient - https://youtu.be/40Uuwn_b6-4 You must master your weaknesses with a corresponding strength.

Pursuit of Happiness, Principles for Parenting, Educating & Influencing the Next Generation for Success... and you too!
Think of you and your family. When you are happy, healthy at peace, your family is too, it’s contagious. How do you pursue happiness when there’s aways someone out there trying to steal it from you. One way is to identify the ‘triggers’. Who or what is pushing your buttons without your permission. Who is saying, doing, being negative everyday and you are getting tired of having your shields up all the time. Wouldn’t it be nice to let your guard down every now and then and let happiness in. By identifying what ‘triggers’ you and your spiral into woe is me, you can practice being able to let that slide off, just like water on a ducks back. Can you think of a situation where your pursuit of happiness is being challenged? Today I share 3 Tips on happiness and the secret of the pursuit. Whether you are raising a family, on your own or taking care of a loved one, this episode is designed to help as many people as possible discover their happy place and stay there. 'Happiness is that state of consciousness which proceeds from the achievement of one’s values.' Ayn Rand “Happiness is not pleasure, nor is it virtue. It is the exercise of virtue.” Aristotle “If your joy is derived from what society thinks of you, you’re always going to be disappointed” Madonna Never let anyone plant a seed of self-doubt in order for them to feel better. If you are interested in more on the bully subject, I go into great detail in Episode 018, The Trouble with Bullies: https://youtu.be/7oE37Asfz0c Sir Thomas Browne: “I am the happiest man alive. I have that in me that can convert poverty into riches, adversity to prosperity, and I am more invulnerable than Achilles; fortune hath not one place to hit me. “The purpose of morality is to teach you, not to suffer and die, but to enjoy yourself and live.” — Ayn Rand Live Well!
