Intrinsic drives often persist as lifelong drives.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Do you have some internal drives that have survived for decades? If you do then you know what I'm talking about.

Long-lasting, persistent wants/needs/drives reveal much about character and personality.

[Time and effort spent working to fulfill these persistent drives is time and effort well spent.] 

When we to want to win at all costs, our perspectives become quite blind to the realities of situations.

Some people cannot adjust their thinking to fit the realities of the situations at hand.

Some people cannot even begin to untie their emotions, so they can use logic to think about the real facts they face in situations.

Perhaps, the problem is, their Ego must cry out for help regardless of the situation they face?

Some never tire of fighting the same battles, using the same weapons, & meeting the same defeats. What peculiar stamina!

It seems some people never tire of experiencing the same old problems. What peculiar stamina!

Perhaps most of us appear that way when viewed from others' perspectives. [Attribution Bias]

Perhaps when observed by others most of us appear to obstinately cling to the bad habits that limit our ability to deal successfully with other people?

Perhaps my perceptions of other people's behaviour, as I watch them struggle, are too harsh?

People are 'selflings': that's a good rather than a bad thing...so focus on yourself...regularly.

About that suffix 'ling': yes, often pejorative; but, not always.

So, cut other selflings some slack, as they will have to do for you if you are to achieve your desires.

Your personality strengths give you a chance. What you do with them today is what really counts.

The Thinking Behind The Tweet

Your personality may take a back seat to what you do...especially when the going gets tough.

We judge others by what they do.

We trust others by what they do. 

Others do the same to us.
