Winning In The Real World

Dr. Phil McGraw, a worldly and popular TV therapist and psychiatrist, lists 16 ways for winning in the real world in his absurdly best-selling secular book he calls, “Life Code”.

Here they are:
1. Defined image
2. Perception of uniqueness
3. Play “big”
4. Accept praise
5. Become essential
6. Know your real currency
7. Always have a plan
8. Keep things “close to the vest”
9. Investigatory mode
10. Behave your way to success
11. Keep options open
12. Master the system
13. Nucleus of supporters
14. Deal only with truth
15. Use others’ ego
16. Pick your battles

First, according to God’s word the “real world” Dr. Phil speaks of isn’t real.real world

Second, no man, even one with as many diplomas and degrees on his wall as Dr. McGraw, has a code with real answers to life’s challenges.

Third, McGraw claims he has “new rules” for getting along in the real world. The truth is, rules for the best way to get along in the real world have been around for 4,000 years.

And last, there’s a simple five-word phrase that renders all Dr. Phil’s “sweet 16” rules for getting along in the “real world” ineffective — “Love God; love one another.”

Read the REAL Life Code for the REAL answer to any of life’s questions, problems, addictions or dilemmas–Jesus Christ. You can find Him and the answers in God’s Holy Word, the Bible.

  1. “…there’s a simple five-word phrase that renders all Dr. Phil’s “sweet 16″ rules for getting along in the “real world” ineffective — “Love God; love one another.”

    I love how the simplicity of the Gospel renders worldly thinking powerless. And that’s good news.

    1. Thank you. This guy plugs his book about three times every show. And his advice is so worldly. He acts as if he has all the answers. And he doesn’t. That’s the way the world is going though. Thank you for your comment. You are so right about the simplicity of the Gospel.
