For what ? you may ask, for anything I reply, if you stop and think about things many of us spend most of our lives preparing , but for what are we preparing, do we prepare in a conscious fashion, I think many things we do, but we also learn lots of little incidentals along the way, that just add to our general preparation in life.
This is so true, if we were prepared for questions of the heart, deception in friendship and general bad behaviour from people we do not expect, being prepared would never hurt anyone, but sadly we are not ! I personally don’t think this is a question of preparation, when we are hurt through another person, at times it can be more of a shock reaction, when we are spoken to in a way we are not expecting, when things are said, that maybe in normal circumstances would never have been said, and of course when the situation has been turned around so much, it is like living in a maze, knowing you will never get out and never be able to explain the true situation, how many situations have had a life time effect on words and situations that get lost in a true life maze. The only preparation that may help in these situations would be on how to handle difficult situations and how to re-act. However it is general knowledge that questions of the heart, concerning people we know, are very different from defusing a situation or giving advise to people who are not in your immediate inner circle.
When we talk of preparation within our education, we are going to benefit big time, when we feel prepared, we acquire an inner confidence, if we are taking exams and know we have prepared well, we sit with more ease, it is the same with your driving test and distinct things which face us in life, when we are talking about maybe an operation or a major moment we need to confront, we will have prepared ourselves within the mind, our mindset will be right and we will feel right !
When we are going to an important meeting for a future job or something you want with all your heart, if you have prepared well, it will show on the outside, your confidence will raise to the surface and the world will witness who you really are and what you want.
As you move up the staircase of life, you will acquire more and more preparation, it is not something you will always study, it may just come to you along your pathway, it can be a natural thing, where you must use your knowledge to hold onto it, store it away and use it when necessary, it maybe something you witness everyday or hear on a regular basis due to where you work or frequent on a regular basis, always be aware of what is going on around you, let that be part of your preparation .
