Life Lessons from Scrooge

Scrooge Teaches Us To Take A Deeper Look Inside

I have always wanted to write about the character Scrooge from the story, A Christmas Carol, and the lessons he taught us regarding business and life; The fact that we affect our business dealings and relationships if we have not “grown” as an individual.

Kristen Lamb also utilizes the Scrooge character to teach valuable lessons. refer to an article entitled:What Ebenezer Scrooge Can Teach Us About Great Writing.

How can this be the case you may ask?

The answer is that there may be aspects of ourselves which may be causing us pain, sorrow, fear, anger, etc., that we are carrying with us every day that we wake up, and are not willing to take a deeper look inside.

Why is this important? Well, what has the potential to happen from day to day, week to week, month to month, or year to year, is that deep rooted emotions may lie dormant inside of us until something or someone reminds a particular emotion to wake them up!

The character of Scrooge carried allot of emotions outwardly that were indicators that he had other things going on, on the inside!

For Scrooge, he woke up each and every day, and wore his emotions in much the same way that someone would put on a coat before walking out the door.

Scrooge was a perfect example of someone who allowed so much time to go by without addressing what was bothering him, that he affected everyone he came in contact with, whether personally or in business.

Scrooge Looks Deeper

If you know the story of Scrooge, you realize that Scrooge was visited by three ghosts who would change the course of his life.

For the sake of this article, let’ s pretend that each ghost actually represented a part of Scrooge’s conscience.

DEEPER STILL…

Each aspect of Scrooge’s conscience had to come directly TO Scrooge because it came directly FROM Scrooge!

The ghost of Christmas Past: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared so that Scrooge could gain clarity about a series of events which he perceived to have impacted his life in the present.

The ghost of Christmas Present: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared, giving him the opportunity to appreciate the HERE and NOW. That Scrooge could truly learn to “Like life.”

I LIKE LIFE!

The ghost of Christmas Future: This part of Scrooge’s conscience appeared for Scrooge to realize that he, himself is the creator of his Future, and that whatever he perceives it to be, he has the opportunity to change it.

Change your mind, change your life!

If YOU look deeper, the character of Scrooge really does teach us many different life lessons.
