Which Chemical Element are You?

Chemistry comedians like to say, "If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate." If you remember your chemistry then you know that the precipitate is what falls from the solution.

In this metaphor, you don't want to be the precipitate.

Here's how to make sure that doesn't happen to your child.

If you’ve been following the Heroic Unschooling Journal lately then you know there are four important life skills our children must begin learning immediately, if not sooner.

And you know that we call the process of learning these four skills, Heroic Unschooling.

Today I’m going to share the fourth element of the framework: TRANSACTION.

We have to see and understand the rules of the game: OBSERVATION.

We have to learn to learn so that we can get better and better at playing it: LEARNING.

We have to package ourselves as an offer to others in order to be someone others want to play with: PACKAGING.

But, at the end of the day, the real action is on the field where we transact with others in order to accomplish things and prosper.

TRANSACTION is where happiness and prosperity are lost and found.

Most people really struggle to get what they want, because they simply don’t understand the physics of the process.

We take things like gravity for granted.  We all know what’s going to happen when we throw a ball.  But for most people, life is pretty mysterious.  Some of what they have tried worked, but then other times it didn’t.

The problem is that they don’t understand why, because they can’t SEE the natural forces at work, so they don’t know how to alter their approach.

Flying blind is scary, dangerous, and frankly hopeless.

Most of the time, people ‘give up’; they resign themselves to the notion that 'this is just as good as it’s going to get' or they get bitter and blame others for their failures.

Either way it’s a tragedy that doesn’t need to happen.

The four part Vaikido framework clarifies the game of life in a way that can change a child’s entire outlook on life and it can dramatically increase your family’s unity at the same time.
