Ok I have to say this is my favorite "life laws" in Dr. Phil's book.
YOU EITHER GET IT, OR YOU DON'T. "In almost every situation, there are people who get it and there are people who don't...and it's really easy to tell them apart. Those who get it are enjoying the fruits of their knowledge. Those who don't spend a lot of time looking puzzled, frustrated, and doing without. Those that don't can often be seen beating their heads against a wall and complaining that they never seem to get a break. Those who get it seem to be tuned in and not just playing, but actually controlling. They don't make foolish mistakes, because they have figured out that there is a definite formula for success, and they have broken the code. They have the formula." In short. they get it.
What I have learned is there is no easy button. You must learn, then apply. You can't cheat and you can't take shortcuts. It's a process and you must go through it.
Dr. Phil goes on to say, "You break the current life law whenever you operate without the necessary information and skills to create the results you want." So, so true.
Have a plan and a strategy. Know the rules.
