So next RON L HUBBARD states that LIFE is a GAME!
What is his definition of a GAME?
It is something that consists of FREEDOM, BARRIERS and PURPOSES!
“Primary amongst these is the necessity in a game to have an opponent or enemy. Also a necessity is to have problems. Another necessity is to have sufficient individuality to cope with the situation. To live life fully, one must have in addition to ‘something to do’ a HIGHER PURPOSE (my emphasis). And this purpose, to be a purpose at all, must have counter-purposes or purposes which prevent it from occurring. One must have individualities which oppose the purpose or activities of one. And if one lacks these things, it is certain that he (she) will invent them.”
In business and life I call the lack of counter-purposes that need to be invented SELF SABOTAGE!
For example, with SELF SABOTAGE usually a person sees things going too smoothly and puts up a BARRIER to make it return to going rough again. I had a client once who was a master at SELF SABOTAGING himself! He needed $5,000,000 for his vision to become a reality. We went to a meeting where he did a bang up presentation winning over the potential investor. My partner and I were high fiving the “done” deal!
We came back into the meeting and Stan goes into a SELF SABOTAGE mode and kills the deal!
BTW he NEVER got the funds to do his vision!
He was and still is his WORST ENEMY!
