The prerequisite behaviors required to achieve these three social skills, and the multitude of others that make us Mental Wealth millionaires, have been described in previous strens. Refer to the self-endorsement skills, the magical problem-solving sentence, and the Seven Mind-freeing, Life-changing, World-saving Word switches described in earlier strens. They enable us to become our own person, to free our will from the dictators who would otherwise determine our life experience. Thereupon we can acquire these three success qualities, and many other wise behaviors that support a joyous, meaningful life experience.
Remember, none of us are born with knowledge or social skills. The instinctive behavior we inherit is often not very civil, and we cannot choose our parents or most of the other nurturers - the role models whose behaviors we mimic to first become who and what we are. We are totally dependent on fate and circumstance until we mature sufficiently to teach ourselves what we need to succeed in our environment. Accurate empathy, unconditional positive regard, and congruence are three proven skills that you can add to your repertoire, or strengthen if you already possess them. I believe anyone can create a joyous, fulfilled life experience by acquiring the common sense way of thinking that is available free for the asking. Collect enough of the wisdoms proven by others to work, and you will grow your collection to become a Mental Wealth millionaire. These three are among the most powerful.
