Our minds often don’t do what they can to achieve growth or complexity, but we shouldn’t take the path of least resistance and most distraction.
Instead of giving up in the face of difficult situations, you should use them to discover novel solutions.
Our genes impel us to seek basic pleasures, not the skills and challenges found in enjoyment.
We must learn to take into consideration and appreciate the laws that govern the situation and not only our own personal needs and motives.
Focused attention distances us from our anxiety, helping us to gain perspective and find new ways to grow.
Make sure you invest in your relationships, as they will provide many opportunities for happiness and growth.
Engaging with family, friends and community is vital for our happiness, self-expression and growth.
