1. How will you use the material on conditioning to improve your own life? Your parenting of children? Managing of others? We can condition our self to have better habits such as working out every morning, not all conditioning needs to be like in the little Albert experiment. We need to make a significant change in our life and achieve whatever goals we set for our self we must condition our mind for success. The journey of success will be full excitement, achievement, happiness and satisfaction. It will also be full of pitfalls, obstacles, failures and challenges. And if we aren't able to handle the failures, we'll never reap the reward of the achievements. Learning how to handle failures, setbacks and challenges starts with how we approach everything in our life, especially the little things. Conditioning our mind for success means establishing new habits, and habits are formed with the little things we do every day. Achieving success in our own personal, professional or business life is the same.

People get frustrated when they don't get what they want and often times don't realize it is because they did not communicate clearly, what it is they wanted. I think one of the reasons they ask is that communication skills are skills we use when we interact with people, and that there are so many different ways to interact that it’s difficult to define. My take on this is that when our interaction with others gives us the result we want, and it gives the other person the result they want, we used our interpersonal skills successfully. The thing is that we all have interpersonal skills. As we grow up and
