Most people tend to express problems in ways that do not reveal the true source of their pain.

And most people reply to such cries for help with cries for help. [Eckhardt Tolle]

It's all about the huge influence our unconscious brain exerts, as part of the human condition.

 

Some people become problem magnets...attracting a never-ending series of similar problems.

Many of us don't see the problems coming let alone see we are the specialists who create them.

For some people - problems get totally out of control...arriving one after another...time after time after time.

Some people cannot get out of their 'problem ruts'. They need help. They need the benefits found in other people's talents & strengths.

 

 

Here's a Catch-22: People get so busy 'in their minds' they have no time to address their own ineptitude or anyone else's.

When I am inept I am overwhelmed by my workload. When I am overwhelmed by my workload I believe I don't have enough time. When I believe I don't have enough time I don't do what is required to remedy my ineptitude.

What a Catch-22.

Better fix that!

 

Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?

A thin skull allows important stuff to get in easier.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Mistakes bang into and bounce off thick skulls.

This annoys Mistakes because their role is teaching lessons.

The problem is: When thick skulls won't let them in Mistakes cannot teach lessons to thick-skulled brains.

So Mistakes keep coming back, knocking on thick skulls over and over and over again.

While Mistakes are born to be great teachers, over time they tend to develop an uppity attitude and a nasty sense of humour. Even when they've given up on teaching well-concealed brains Mistakes have no desire to stop knocking on the thick skulls that house those brains.

The key foresight point is: We can count on Mistakes to come back over and over again to knock on our skulls if we keep them thick.

The bottom line is: As long as our skulls remain thick we will never have the opportunity to learn the lessons taught by Mistakes.

 

Respond to cries for help with listening ears, seeing eyes and thinking brains...rather than with your cries for help..

As Eckhart Tolle said, “Most people respond to a cry for help with a cry for help”.

You can find plenty of opportunities to break that communication pattern!
