Stay Foolish....

  The  National  Security  Agency  of  the  United  States  government  defines  elicitation  as  “the subtle extraction of  information   during an  apparently    normal  and
    innocent conversation.”
   Elicitation works so well for several reasons:

  Most people have the desire to be polite, especially to strangers.
  Professionals want to appear well informed and intelligent.
  If you are praised, you will often talk more and divulge more.
  Most people would not lie for the sake of lying.
  Most people respond kindly to people who appear concerned about them.
   The Rules For Being Human

1. You will receive a body. You may like it or hate it, but it will be yours for the entire period of this time around.
2. You  will  learn  lessons.   You   are   enrolled   in  a full-time  informal  school  called Life. Each day in this school  you  will have the opportunity to learn lessons.
    You may like the lessons or think them irrelevant and stupid.
3. There   are   no   mistakes,   only  lessons.   Growth is a process of trial and error: Experimentation. The "failed" experiments are as much a part of the process as
    The experiment that ultimately works.
4. A  lesson  is  repeated  until  learned.  A  lesson  will  be  presented to you in various forms until you have learned it. When you have learned it, you can then go on
    to the next lesson.
5. Learning   lessons   does   not   end.   There   is   no   part   of   life   that   does   not   contain   its   lessons.   If  you  are  alive, there  are  lessons  to be learned.
6. "There"   is   no   better   than  "here."   When  your   "there"   has   become  a  "here," you will simply obtain another "there" that will again look better than "here."
7. Others  are  merely  mirrors  of  you.  You  cannot  love  or  hate  something  about  another  person  unless  it reflects something you love or hate  about yourself.
8. What  you  make  of  your  life  is  up  to  you.  You  have  all  the  tools  and  resources  you  need.  What  you  do  with  them is up to you. The choice is yours.
9. Your  answers  lie  inside  you.  The  answers  to Life's questions lie inside you. All you need to do is look, listen and trust.
10.You will forget all this.

   Who  you  are  speaks  so  loudly  I  can't  hear  what  you're  saying.  Ralph  Waldo  Emerson
   Obstacles  are  those  frightful  things  you  see  when  you take  your  eyes  off y our  goal.  Henry  Ford
   One  way  a  social  engineer  can  learn  about  how  to  use  open- ended  questions  is  to  analyze  and study good reporters. A good reporter must use open-ended
    Questions to continue    eliciting responses from his or her interviewee.
   Dale  Carnegie  claimed  that  all  people  can  talk  when  they  get  mad.  He  said  that  if  you  hit  the  most ignorant man in town on the jaw and knock him down,
    He  would  get  on  his  feet  and  talk  with  an  eloquence,  heat  and emphasis that would have rivaled that world famous orator William Jennings Bryan at the height
    of  his  career. He  claimed  that  almost  any  person  can  speak  acceptably  in public  if  he or she has self-confidence and an idea that is boiling and stewing within.
   The  way  to  develop  self-confidence,  Dale  Carnegie  said,  is  to  do  the  thing  you  fear  to  do  and  get  a  record  of  successful  experiences  behind  you.
   "If  You  Want  To  Gather  Honey,  Don't  Kick  Over  The  Beehive"
   "I  learned  thirty  years  ago  that  it  is foolish to scold. I have enough trouble overcoming my own limitations without fretting over the fact that God has not seen fit
    to  distribute  evenly  the  gift  of  intelligence."
