“The only defense against the world is a thorough knowledge of it.” John Locke.
Knowledge and understanding can change your brain as effectively as any therapy. Preventing psychological problems can be more effective than treating them after they occur. This book is about how learning from others can protect ourselves and our children from the pain of living and learn the social skills and knowledge that make us successful in our personal lives, raising our children, our business.
Most of us know the problems of living from our own experience. Yet few imagine that the most successful and famous people in history have also gone through similar problems. From “Staying Sane in an Insane World” to “The Fire In Your Belly” these are the lessons of life and the social skills that make life better for all of us. Teachers and parents can use this knowledge to help their kids and to help ourselves benefit from the lessons learned from the lives of others.
“If only I knew then, what I know now…” is the most common refrain of life. it illustrates the critical importance of knowledge, yet there are few sources to learn from.
How can we develop the social skills we need to succeed in life? How can we avoid the problems life creates for us? Sometimes we forget the problems we have as soon as they are passed, while other times we lay awake at night and agonize over our failures in the past.
