Rick has 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.


Pillar 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.

Pillar 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.



Pillar 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.



Pillar 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 you!



Pillar 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 to offer.



Pillar 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 colleagues.



Pillar 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 could become.



Pillar 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 good leader.



Pillar 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 worth millions.



Pillar 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.



Pillar 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

Becoming 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 know you.
