Human nature is something that we can’t help…can we? It appears that there is an internal program written in us that causes us to act and react in particular ways. What do you think about that. I know that Michael Jackson’s song said “why, why…tell them that it’s human nature, why do you do me this way”.
I’m of a very unconventional mindset as it relates to a lot of things I learned as an adolescent. The spiritual lessons, the practical lessons, the American tradition is even in question with certain aspects of life. Regardless to whether you consider personal life, business life or any other aspect of our life today…your human instincts (nature) seems to kick in when something doesn’t sit well with you.
I say we have to break formation and tradition at times to get different results. If you don’t understand how something works choose a different teacher or learning process. If you’re in a relationship that you want to work, but it doesn’t you may need to choose someone else. In most situations our natural instincts does not want confrontation and were more likely to go with the flow, but you have to measure the value of your time.
During my breakout sessions and keynotes I speak about personality types and the importance of being able to identify them in people. I’d like to emphasize that it’s also important to identify your own personality type. If you don’t understand it may take some time to tie the two things together (personality types and human nature), but if you’re in tune to the correlation then you will realize that people mostly have the same needs and responses to things, but it’s expressed differently dependent upon how your wired.
How important something is
The time value
The monetary value
Once you’ve looked at these things honestly, you must choose or become a victim of your own circumstances. Why, tell you that it’s human nature!
