Surprising Lessons from the Grinch!
We're in the throes of the holi-daze wrap up!
I hope you had a fantastic Christmas!!
What We Can Learn From that Old Grinch
Yes, the Grinch can be a crotchety, termite-infested soul with a heart two sizes too small...
However, there are a lot of beneficial things we can learn from him as well...
Especially as it comes to defensive tactics!
Check These Out:
1. Tactical Thinking
Coming up with all those successfully elaborate plans on the spot -- especially when under that kind of pressure -- is a pretty handy skill to have in ye olde self defense "tool box."
2. Leadership Abilities
Even from an isolated position on top of his mountain headquarters, he was able to motivate a small team to carry out a covert night mission against a force much greater in numbers and resources.
3. Ability to Act
While it's true the Grinch is being a jerk when he cleans out Whoville, it's hard not to admire his ability to pull off his plan (in one night!).
(We have to give some credit to Max who pulled the sled...)
4. Problem Solving Abilities
Through the Grinch's ability to improvise, adapt and overcome, he was able to get out of numerous tight spots, from acquiring adequate transportation, to employing an effective disguise to infiltrate Whoville...
And lets not forget, when he was caught mid-operation by Cindy Lou Who, he employed his verbal communication abilities to resolve the situation without incident or violence.
Feats like this prove the Grinch is capable of all kinds of creativity and problem-solving feats and miracles.
And, some pretty clever ones at that...
Who knows... Maybe he's a ninja?! =)
Yes, the Grinch STOLE Christmas -- looting an entire town of tens of thousands of smackeroos worth of gifts, presents and food (he even took the last can of Who Hash!).
Yet, somehow he was still able to make up for it and he was even given the honor of carving the roast beast!
Wow, talk about diplomacy skills!
(He could have a career in politics...)
These aren't the ONLY LESSONS...
Here is a Bonus Lessons from our Grumpy Green Friend to fill your holiday stocking up with...
(1) Always remember that there are admirable qualities even in people we don't like and who are doing dastardly deeds! They're still human, with the Good, the Bad & the Ugly coursing through their souls, just like us.
THE BIGGEST LESSON IS THIS!
You have to be able to separate the everyone's Value as a person from their behavior.
You'll make better decisions and are more likely to handle their shenanigans' more approaperately... You'll also live a happier life. Look what it did for the Grinch. His heart grew x3!
OK, that's it for today.
