The 10 Truths Of Our Human Nature 2.0 Framework Shape Your Life. Wow!

We experience being human from the day we're born, but how often do we think about the nature of being human?

Our human nature is just there, you know…almost like it’s our nature to be human. Human nature sticks closer to us than our shadow. Like an invisible stranger who sometimes makes us angry, embarrassed, joyful, or sad and confused. 

Whether we’re aware of it or not, that invisible stranger is responsible for our emotions, deeply held beliefs, and our feelings, and behaviors. As all of these are in play, for all of us, all the time, they’re responsible for our relationships, and the shared experiences that become our cultures, large and small.

Understanding how human nature works strengthens every relationship, at work, home—and everywhere. It provides a different view of the world, making a positive contribution to your confidence and mental health.

13 Natural Laws and counting; here’s to insights, wisdom, and peace.

Metaphors can make complex or abstract concepts more accessible and aid in problem-solving by providing alternative points of view. They can inspire innovative solutions by drawing parallels between different domains.

The Connect platform uses a number of metaphors to reinforce humanity in our lives. We refer to them as “natural laws” because common sense tells you that they’re always true. In that light, you might easily identify natural laws from your own experience.

The Connect approach incorporates natural laws that align with and support other concepts and methods within it.

These natural laws emphasize the human aspect of interactions, promote positive communication, and foster understanding and empathy. By incorporating natural laws into the Connect platform, we cultivate an environment of trust, collaboration, meaningful engagement, and ultimately contribute to bottom line success.

By incorporating natural laws into the Connect approach, it creates the following benefits:

  • Emphasizes the human aspect of interactions
  • Promotes positive communication
  • Fosters understanding and empathy
  • Cultivates an environment of collaboration and support
  • Expands each person’s circle-of-trust
  • Encourages meaningful engagement with others
  • Contributes to overall success

Laying them out simply

Natural laws tend to be self-evident. This group of 13 is insightful and resonates well with the principles of effective communication, collaboration, and understanding in both personal and professional contexts. Let’s dig deeper and explore each of them.

Assume the best, and find out the rest.

This highlights the importance of starting interactions with a positive mindset. Assuming the best in others fosters trust and goodwill, creating a foundation for positive relationships. The second part emphasizes the need for open communication and understanding to uncover the full picture. Also, not assuming the best can set you up  for embarrassing yourself.

We do business person to person.

Emphasizing the human element in business relationships is crucial. It underlines the idea that behind every business decision, there are individuals with unique perspectives, needs, and emotions. Acknowledging this human aspect promotes empathy and effective communication.

You can't ignore human nature.

Recognizing the influence of human nature on behavior is essential. This law suggests that understanding and working with inherent human traits, motivations, and emotions is key to optimizing individual and collective performance.

Force it an it's likely to break.

This metaphor highlights the importance of organic and natural development. Forcing actions or solutions without considering the context and individuals involved can lead to resistance or unintended consequences. It aligns with the idea of allowing processes and relationships to evolve naturally.

A fair trade is the only one people seek.

This law emphasizes the importance of fairness and reciprocity in relationships. Fairness creates a sense of trust and mutual benefit, encouraging sustained engagement and investment. It aligns with the Connect principle of creating a positive environment through meaningful exchanges.

Lies create weakness.

Highlighting the fundamental role of relationships, this law stresses that relationships not only shape the context in which teams operate but also serve as the building blocks for organizational culture. It aligns with the Connect platform’s focus on nurturing positive relationships and the impact they have on teamwork and overall culture.

Relationships are our context.

Highlighting the fundamental role of relationships, this law stresses that relationships not only shape the context in which teams operate but also serve as the building blocks for organizational culture. It aligns with the Connect platform’s focus on nurturing positive relationships and the impact they have on teamwork and overall culture.

Trust is how we connect for success.

The level of accomplishment for any two people, across any team, and throughout the organization will always rise and fall according to the level of trust they maintain. Damaged trust  undermines all that we do, and we have too much of that.

Measure what matters.

This law underscores the importance of targeted and meaningful measurement. It aligns with the Connect principle of data-driven decision-making. By measuring what truly matters, organizations can focus on key indicators that drive success and improvement, ensuring that efforts are aligned with strategic objectives.

There are two currencies.

Recognizing the dual nature of currencies, this law suggests that emotions and feelings play a primary role in human interactions. It aligns with the Connect wisdom that emphasizes the importance of emotional intelligence and understanding the emotional aspects of team dynamics and collaboration.

Things in need of repair.

Fear is the biggest block.

This natural law succinctly captures the profound impact of fear on various aspects of human experience. It’s helpful to explore its implications in the context of creativity, focus, relationships, and accomplishment:

  • Creativity—fear of being judged or criticized stifles creativity by creating a hesitancy to take risks or explore new ideas. A culture of fear will inhibit individuals from expressing innovative thoughts or challenging the status quo.
  • Focus—fear creates distraction that hampers concentration and focus. When individuals are preoccupied with protecting themselves, their ability to stay present and engaged in tasks will be compromised.
  • Relationships—fear erodes trust and strains relationships. In an environment marked by fear, individuals become wary of communicating openly, leading to misunderstandings and weakened connections.
  • Accomplishment—fear hinders progress and achievement. When individuals are afraid of failure or repercussions, they typically avoid taking necessary actions, which can impede personal and collective accomplishments.

In the context of Connect, addressing and alleviating fear is crucial for fostering a positive and collaborative environment. Encouraging open communication, recognizing and celebrating successes, and providing support for risk-taking can help mitigate the impact of fear and contribute to a culture that nurtures creativity, focus, strong relationships, and accomplishment.

Doing the right thing.

This isn’t just about ethics. Everyone has a builtin understanding of right and wrong. Or maybe they do, until they get confused by their own wants and needs, which is surely a critical weakness. The bigger issue is the negative energy that doing the wrong thing creates. It can hang on—even when we’re not aware of it—to foul other endeavors.

Think about what you think about.

The pace and complexity of life can be overwhelming. But, when your eyes glaze over, and you surrender your presence as escape, you’re not just taking a break. You’re losing touch with what’s real and important. Before you know it, you’re still overwhelmed, and you’re lost in a tangle of feelings, not felt. This is about much more than being present. It’s about understanding and staying anchored to your essential self.

In summary

The Connect natural laws align with and support the other concepts and methods within the Connect approach. They emphasize the human aspect of our interactions, the importance of positive communication, and the need for understanding and empathy. Incorporating natural laws into your thinking as part of the Connect platform contributes to an environment of trust, collaboration, meaningful engagement with others, and ultimately to success.
