In the human body, there’s always exists—a human inside! The book, Of Human Nature and Good Habits, reveals that human inside and promotes good personal habits and social skills. This book along with its four companion books—Nature Is My Teacher; Life, Living and Lifestyle; How to Win Nature and Enjoy Good Life and Health and Medical Care—constitutes a series that tells the nature-human connection and its implication in our daily life, in the related set of separate episodes.
Of Human Nature and Good Habits primarily deals with our everyday experiences of good life and living. The book contains chapters: Human Nature (By nature, all humans are alike, but practice sets them apart.); Nature vs. Nurture (One-third born (nature) and two-thirds made (nurture)! It is a huge statement.); Personality (Don’t let others evaluate you. Do not imitate others; do not impersonate others.); Patience and Confidence (Our ability grows or shrinks in proportion with our courage.); Discipline and Good Habits (Children are raw and wild by nature. They need to be disciplined.); Courage, Attitude, and Ambition (Do what you think is best; otherwise, you will do what others think is best.); Aim in Life (Everyone plans to succeed; no one plans to fail. But failure happens. Failure is one essential part of success; but the fear of failure is the killer of success.); Mind and Mental Habits (Genius and genuinely creative people have two things in abundance: curiosity and drive.); Mind and Body (Human brain—weighing about 3 pounds, accounting 2% of the body’s weight—is a biological machine that consumes 20% of the body’s energy production.); Mind and Memory (Speaking multiple languages may help protect cognitive health over the long term, and may delay Alzheimer’s disease.); Power of Meditation (It is not figuring out what is wrong with you and trying to fix it; rather, it is identifying what is right with you and doing more of it.); Greed, Envy, and Jealousy (During the evolutionary process, individuals with strong innate yearnings for food, sex, and material gain, have a better chance of surviving and reproducing than other individuals with less yearning.); Humor and Laughter (Laughter is one universal emotion!); Talk and Sing (Talk is the publication of thoughts! It is the momentum of our mind! Music is a special announcement how one’s feel of feelings is expressed in the form of sound.); Nature and Natural Habits (Man invents a mousetrap, but nature plays a better mouse.); Be Wise (Be aware of data aggression. Overloaded memory can extinguish our natural spirit. Don’t ingest anything that you can’t digest.); Be Happy (Count carefully what makes you worthwhile and happy, and discount wisely what makes you worthless and unhappy.); Be Honest, Simple, and Natural (Honesty is the state of mind; dishonesty is not. Therefore, it’s wise to encourage honesty rather than discourage dishonesty.)
