If you think of your life as a work in progress, something on the bench of life, then I want you to think about you as a master craftsman. At the end of the day you need to have mastery over your own life.

So if you think about a master craftsman, in the first instance, he will choose his tools very carefully, right? He wouldn’t use a chisel to unscrew something he’d use a screwdriver. He wouldn’t use a hammer to put a pin in the wall.

Likewise when it comes to your life it is very critical that you choose the right resource within yourself to the right degree to accomplish what it is you need to accomplish. And that is the whole reason and benefit of becoming conscious.

Because you cannot do this without consciousness. You cannot do this unless you have an extremely high knowledge of what it is that is in you and what it is you have available at any given time to bring to bear to help you out in whatever situation you have.

So think about it in those terms – whatever you do in life it needs to be tackled in the right kind of way, with the right kind of skill set, and to the appropriate degree.

A common example of how this doesn’t happen is when we are trying to bring discipline, could be to ourselves or to a child perhaps, or to someone in our environment who we are guiding, could be an employee or a colleague that we are mentoring, the examples are endless, but at the end of the day you need to guide them, correct them etc.

If you don’t do that with sufficient authority, knowledge, truth, firmness, kindness, to name but a few that situation is going to go pear-shaped. And it very often does. This is the root of miscommunication.

Where your intent might be good, the principle might be sound, but you haven’t touched on the things within you that would best solved the situation.

And we all have innate skills, talents, abilities, to help us out for our particular situation in life. That’s a given.

Right now at this current moment you have the skill set to move your life forward. The question is do you know what skill set it is and are you employing it correctly?
