There are certain basic facts of life that one should keep in mind as he lives life: - Competition is a very important element in life. It is pervasive in all aspects of life. It manifests itself in nature as "the law of the jungle", "the survival of the fittest", and these same laws underlie much in the affairs of man. Much in life is about survival and man can be expected to do what he has to do in order to survive. - Man can usually be counted upon, in the last analysis, to act in his own best interest. Self-concern and self- interest will usually dictate on important issues. - The strong will often bully and abuse the weak. Whether you are talking about physical abuse as from a bully in school or a husband beating a wife or you are talking about mental and emotional abuse as that of a superior towards a subordinate, the strong very often abuse the weak. - People tend to act in accordance with their emotional inclinations. It is basic emotional inclination that usually determines what people do. If you find yourself in a subordinate position to a person who has an instinctive dislike for you all the merit in the world, whether it be intelligence, competence or good character, is not likely to save you from him. Because of these facts of life a prudent man realizes the importance of being strong, of building up strength, of being able to deal with others from a position of strength. Q. What are the ways in which a person can "strengthen himself", improve his position for dealing with others, and reduce his vulnerability to hurt and abuse, while pursuing the "game of life" in a competitive world? A. By doing the following: - getting a college education or knowledge of some specialized trade - learning self-reliance - learning to live on little (and being satisfied with it) - improving his mind through reading, reflection, etc. - saving money Jan 1985
