identified the following teachings as key driving energies which nurture
the human spirit, enabling a person to function at peak performance in
ways that they never dreamed possible.
1 - Mentoring - Find A Mentor, Be A Mentor Many find that mentoring relationships are a prominent key to
rapid personal growth. A good mentor is someone who can see strengths
in us that we might not really see in ourselves. A mentor holds us
accountable for commitments we make to achieve greater successes in
life. The mentoring process opens amazing doors of opportunity that we
might not otherwise experience. There are several key skills that will
enable you to become very successful in the art of mentoring and
encouraging other people.
2 - Freedom From Fear Forever Fear is one of the greatest obstacles to personal growth and the
ultimate success in life. Even the greatest highest achievers struggle
from fear and anxiety from time to time. By learning proven strategies
to overcome fear, we can truly life live to the fullest and realize
our greatest ambitions. The first step is in truly realizing and
grasping the fact that we can enjoy life without being plagued by
terrible anxiety. It can be both exciting and liberating as we begin
breaking through our fears.
3 - Adversities Are Opportunities In Disguise Mount Rushmore was inspired by four incredible men who
accomplished amazing feats by harnessing the power of adversity.
Overcoming the adversities of life can reward you with an exhilarating
feeling of strength and accomplishment. While most people run from
adversities, the true leader embraces adversity and uses it as a
slingshot to propel themselves forward. Harnessing adversities is
similar to going to a free weight gym and taking on more weight to
build up muscle tissue.
4 - Taking Up the Challenge to Help Others Some of the world's greatest souls have made their mark in the
world by simply ‘helping' others. If you take up this challenge with
all sincerity in purpose, you would be surprised at the change it
brings to your life. Fresh avenues of opportunities open up from
nowhere. Your heart becomes more compassionate and suddenly the world
becomes a better place to live in. Many cultures teach the golden rule
as something to live by. Invest in others, and life will invest in
5 - Building Confidence and Self Esteem Every person carries around hidden mental bricks that weigh us
down and prohibit us from living our lives to the fullest. Even the
most confident people still have pockets of insecurity. By embracing a
structured process for ridding the mind of these needless weights, we
spark a new level of unstoppable self confidence. You find that other
people are more attracted to those who project a strong level of
healthy self confidence. We become a magnet for all the good life has
6 - Nurture A Constant Flow Of Enthusiasm Enthusiasm is contagious, and generates it's own momentum. When we
remain enthusiastic, those around us become positive and enthusiastic
as well. We can be a Johnny Appleseed of enthusiasm. Rise to the
challenge, and practice sparking enthusiasm in yourself and others
every day. Become someone who lights up the room when they enter.
Enthusiastic people are sought after by others because they instill
courage, self-confidence, and self-belief among their peers and
7 - Coping With Change The only feature of life which is permanent is change. Whether you
accept it or not, whether you are prepared for it of not, people,
situations, values, beliefs, in fact, practically everything both
inside and outside us will change. For some people, change can be
devastating and crush the life out of them. For others, change can be
welcome and invigorating. Fresh ideas and challenges must be met with
courage and grace. Be willing to surrender what you are, for what you
8 - Build Strong and Effective Leadership Skills A good leader knows how to get the best out of his team. He has a
vision which he constantly shares with his people. He knows how to
draw forth the best in people. But how does a person get to develop
leadership skills? How do you take the steps to get from where you are
now, to where you want to be. There are things that every person can
be employing today to build up desirable leadership traits. There are
also things to avoid that will dilute your potential for becoming a
9 - Strategies for Enhancing Creativity Being creative is not just learning to paint a good picture or
write a novel. The need for creativity lurks at every corner of our
lives. Without being creative we can hardly solve the plethora of
problems which plague our daily lives. The more curious you become
about the art and science of creativity, the more in tune we become
with that part of our minds that trigger and release creativity. All
of us are one single step away from a creative idea that could be
10 - Forgive Others and Release Healing Every human being in the world carries with them an invisible
poison that seeps into their soul. This poison hampers their self
growth and drains them of precious energy. They lack the ability to
always perform at their best. This unseen poison that we all carry is
unforgiveness. These are the hurts, bitterness and sufferings that we
still hold onto after someone has done us wrong. Carrying
unforgiveness deep inside is like putting clamps onto the fuel hoses
of a high performance race car. It always holds you back from
performing at your best.
11 - Public Speaking to Persuade and Inspire One of the greatest tools you can possess in your arsenal of
leadership skills is that of public speaking. Most people are full of
anxiety when it comes to standing in front of an audience and giving a
speech or presentation. If you invest time and energy in reinforcing
your public speaking skills, you create exciting opportunities in life
that you would not otherwise be given. Speaking to inspire others to
take action is incredibly rewarding and fulfilling. A speaker can
shape the lives of others.
Pillar 12 - Become a Person of Vision and Goals
highly effective with goal setting and casting a vision for your
future is one of the most important skills you will ever have. How
many times have you come across an old friend that is exactly the same
as they were 10 years ago? There has been very little personal
growth and development over all of those years. They've taken on very
few challenges and realized very few achievements. When you implement
a constant commitment to setting and achieving goals, you soar above
your setbacks and live to your fullest potential. You become a giant
among your peers, and are viewed as a person of excellence by all that
