In studying the Law of Attraction I have become very aware of the need for Life Skills. We need life skills that help us through the weekly grind of society if we are to be survivors. What are Life Skills and Why do I need them I hear you ask?. With the Law of Attraction we need to be in control of our life skills, our thoughts and action if we are to manifest that which the law of attraction is capable of manifesting for us.

This control is built up by us using Life Skills that we derive from our social environment, our learning and from our experiences from living day to day. Most of the learning takes place without our even being aware of it, apart from time spent at school. However this doesn’t prepare us for all that will challenge us during our lifetime. We need to develop our relationship with the universal laws and the law of attraction if we are to hold our sanity, so lets then look at our world around us and our Life Skills.

We spend so much time in our lives being hit from all sides, day in, day out, by our social environment, our work place, our family and our friends. We are bombarded with advertising media about how inadequate we are if we don’t have this or that, don’t go here or there, don’t go to this class or that gym, wear this or that brand of clothing or footwear etc. Our friends and family all wanting the most precious commodity there is to have “Our Time”. Anxiety and depression often take route out of this insatiable pressure that just keeps piling in on us. It weighs you down and turns into the daily grind.

As a young adult you have some relief in getting out with your friends and drowning your feelings with drink and for some the use of drugs. Get a little older and the outlet of this grind gets less and less. You cannot drink as much; you have a partner and or family to look after. Money becomes a big issue as you fight each week to have a little left in the bank after dealing with all those added pressures. The pressure of life just grinds us down. We feel we are owed a break and we crave for “space”
How many times in your life do you want to quit?

How many times in your life do you simply want to just give up? Or even worst, give up your life…

We all do it, or want to do it at some point. Giving up, quitting, it is such an easy emotion to accept at times. You know it, that “It’s just too hard” statement. We all experience it, hear our friends talk about and watch it happening in our workplace in the sports teams we interact with as a player or as a spectator.

So, you ask, “What do I do to not give up, and what do I do to keep going?”

Simple! Develop the Life Skills., The skills that will allow you to not only get through life, but to enjoy each and every minute, hour, day, week, month and the those beautiful years. It sound like a sales pitch doesn’t it? Well yes it is, because unless YOU DO IT no won else is going to do it for you because they can’t. Life skill development starts and ends with you.

So what step are there. There are a number, but the two most important life skills you can ever take into your life are as follows.


That’s it, that’s all there is. You just have to SMILE, think of something happy and just smile. I dare you to walk around your home, your workplace with a smile on your face. Watch and see the reaction. People will talk to you, ask why you’re happy, their attitude will change because smiling is infectious. You may have heard the statement “smile and the whole world will smile with you” and it is true. Take the positive line in life, the” its half full”, “its happened for a good reason” attitude. Remove the blame game, adjust to the reality. It has happened to you, may be able to get it to change in the future, but right here and now it has happened, it has happened to you, so get over it and get on with life. A smile on your face will give you first prize every time. It will make you the winner over those to put you down ill treat you, try to control you.

We will leave the second most important Life Skill to Part two(2) . For now, put skill one to the test. Mentally say to your self over and over “I Must Put a Smile on My Face” and do it. Even if your in the most foulest of moods and it takes great effort JUST SMILE. And keep it there. Think of happy moments in your life and the good feelings you had about that event and bring that feeling into your current situation.

Do it all the time, be positive at the same time and you will grow to enjoy every precious moment you have on this world. Remember you have already won the most important race there ever was. A million to one race, against all the odds, all the barriers possible. Here it is and no one but no one can ever claim it but you.

You, yes you were the winner of the greatest race in life. When failure was unthinkable, you won through. Against the odds, against the obstacles, against all that Mother Nature could put in your way, you and only you were the winner. So stand tall, look at yourself and take on all the world throws in your path. Be the winner, be worthy of the prize you received and enjoy life with a winning SMILE on your face.
