Its research found that only 15 percent of a person’s success is determined by job knowledge and technical skills. Eighty-five percent is determined by an individual’s attitude and ability to relate to other people.<br />Scripture commands us to “be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you” (Ephesians 4:32). In fact, it tells us to love our neighbor as we love ourselves. And a neighbor is not only someone who lives near us or works next to us, but anyone we meet on life’s journey – especially those in need.<br />So having an attitude of courtesy, care, and concern for others is a basic spiritual principle. It is also the most important guideline for congenial and happy relationships. Indeed, it is even the golden key to vocational success.<br />Our purpose for modeling a Christlike spirit of neighborly love, though, is that we want to obey God, not just to achieve success at work. After all, our supreme vocation as believers is to embody and practice the neighbor-loving character of our LORD. VERNON GROUNDS<br />Who measures how we’ve done in life<br />And judges our success?<br />Our God, who gives rewards to those<br />Who live in righteousness. BRANON<br />“Those who love God will love their neighbor.” (Ephesians 4:29-32)<br /><ul><li>The selection starts with a

And then again, how CAN we avoid those very qualities? They are very much a part of life.<br />Every person on this face of this earth experiences BOTH good and evil events in the course of life. At times it may seem that we are experiencing a preponderance of evil, while at other times we feel “lucky” or “blessed” and we see many events as good or beneficial. As we mature, we begin to understand that both types of events are vital to the experience of life. It is then that we experience life as PERFECT or WHOLE or BALANCED.<br />A slightly enlarged understanding of perfection came to me as I meditated on these truths: “All the difficult, painful, traumatic situations that occurred in my life were PERFECT for me.” Not everyone has experienced life with two mentally challenged children… yet, the lessons and the experiences I gained from living with these two unique individuals were/are vital (even necessary) in weaving the fabric of the person that I am today. How does one truly learn patience, except by being sorely tried by the day to day-ness of living in a difficult and long trial? How does one discover strength and the range and shades of courage unless he is being challenged by a wide variety of difficult experiences?<br />The perfectionist who tries to avoid, minimize, or run from every form of pain, unpleasantness, loss, or death is very unbalanced. She tries hard to fit some unreal ideal illusion of painless, flawless, all-togetherness.<br />Where does “perfectionism” originate from? I believe that “perfectionism” originates from “judgmentalism.” We try to be “perfect” to avoid being judged harshly and rejected. REBECCA HANSON<br /><ul><li>The selection basically talks about
how an individual can attain perfection in his life
the difference between perfection and perfectionism
the benefits that one can get out of embracing perfectionism
Which of the following pairs is not among the mentioned “opposing qualities of life” in the selection?
According to the author, when can we experience life as perfect, whole, or balanced?
when we attain success in life by exerting extra efforts in all that we do and in every endeavor we hope to undertake
when we realize that real success is measured by the amount of help we give others and the joy that it can bring into our hearts
when we begin to understand that both good and bad events are vital to the whole experience of life
According to the selection, how can a wide variety of difficult experiences benefit us?
We can have more reasons to ask help from other people.
We can discover our strengths and learn to be courageous.
We can avoid being sought after by other people who also need help.</li></ul>center0ENGLISH HS III [1st Quarter Exams]page 5020000ENGLISH HS III [1st Quarter Exams]page 5<br /><ul><li>What does the author mean by her belief that “perfectionism” originated from judgmentalism?
We strive to be “perfect” so we can judge other people.
When we are judgmental, we can appear to be “perfect”.
We try to be “perfect” to avoid being judged harshly and rejected.
Perfection is the state of avoiding or rejecting the most evil qualities of life.
Every person on the face of this earth experiences both good and evil events in the course of life.
The perfectionist who tries to avoid, minimize, or run from every form of pain, unpleasantness, loss or death is a very balanced person.</li></ul>216547142875Many researchers have become increasingly aware of the fact that early experiences of many kinds can have permanent effects on an animal’s behavior. The idea of imprinting as an early experience during which a young animal forms a strong social attachment to a mother-object has aroused a great deal of interest and research. Although the effort to formulate laws of learning has demonstrated that behaviors which were once thought to be instinctive are modifiable by learning, behaviors such as imprinting are so persistent in character and resistant to alteration by reinforcement that they cannot be explained by conventional laws of learning. Other explanatory devices must be constructed.In a broad sense, imprinting refers to an early experience that has a profound influence on the later adult social behavior of an animal. Although imprinting has been studied mainly in birds, it also has been observed in other animals. It seems that processes very much like imprinting exist in every social species, particularly those in which there are parent-young relationships.020000Many researchers have become increasingly aware of the fact that early experiences of many kinds can have permanent effects on an animal’s behavior.
