How to Deal With Ups & Downs in Life
How to Handle the Negative Influences in Life

There is some truth in judging someone by the company they keep. It can easily be seen that those around us do influence our attitudes and behavior, for better or worse. And it doesn't surprise many to learn that criminals often consort with criminals and that they promote anti-social activities and influence others to continue such unethical and illegal conduct.

This section of the Criminon Program deals with establishing the skill to chart one's own course in life, with honesty and integrity, and to spot and disassociate from those elements which would tend to lead one astray.

The course teaches the students the characteristics of both anti-social personalities and social personalities, so that they may recognize both and know the differences between the two. That way, they can better choose their friends and associates, and become more aware of their own attitudes and be made less susceptible to those who would have them revert to crime.

"Not confronting suppression—not handling it—is giving something of yourself away, like compromising with a thief. Quitting; to give in to suppression is not being your own person. Knowledge is the most powerful possession of all and gives anyone the means to deal with and handle any connection with suppression."

"Until recently, I have lived my life and based my decisions on one principle, ’If it feels good and it seems right, then do it.’ This principle is not a good way for one to be successful or ensure one’s survival!

"I have discovered a great deal about myself and how to live. I have cried and laughed to myself while doing this course. With the encouragement and genuine care and concern of my supervisor, Kathie, I have found The Way to Happiness Correspondence Course to be the primary source of my new found self-respect, dignity and hope."
