Life is full of choices. These choices provide a variety of different outcomes. The problem is that not all outcomes are good; yet they can impact your life forever. You must become a good thinker. The next activity will cultivate your ability to think outside of the box. That is to say, you will learn to think and make more careful choices. Clearly examining the possible
outcomes before you act will ensure that you make the right decisions. Remember, there is always more than one way to resolve conflict. Your goal is to think, think, think until you identify the best choices for you.
In the race called life the prize is not given to the swift but to the wise. You must be smart enough to avoid negative influences and problems that are avoidable and wise enough to know how to walk through the ones that you cannot. Effective conflict resolution resolves problems without the escalation of anger and strife. As you master the art, you will be able to move beyond problems and peer pressures by identifying solutions that yield peaceable outcomes. As you do this, your journey through life will be smoother. Good conflict resolution promotes productive and healthy social interactions and bright futures.
