(4.0) AUTHENTIC-LIVES VIRTUOUS VALUES: Mentoring through shared common experience best defines the necessary path that each of us must take to develop our comprehensive self-improvement habits. This self-disciplined-based mentoring program concentrates on demonstrating effective values and teaching the reaffirming lessons that these Six Pillars of Personal Excellence represent. Each participant is mentored in how to cooperatively harness their emotional and spiritual energy together, thus gaining the full multiplicative advantages that these disciplines create. In addition, the process utilizes a multifaceted educational platform that overcomes individual variation between peers; whereby the program essentially compensates for any difference in inherent talents and learned skills, all of which require nuance-specific Self-Mastery training. When we are willing to deal straight up with our problems by facing circumstances head-on, our physiology opens up, and we become capable of seeing, understanding, and coping with life as it is, and are no longer willing to accept merely hoping for what we want or wishing to get it our way. Bottom line: By approaching our problem-resolution in this integrity-anchored manner, it encourages other people to be vulnerable in their self-assessed critique as well. When we are no longer holding back in fear of judgment or reprisals, and willing to shed daylight on existing dead-weight emotional baggage, deciding what could and should be eliminated making the relationship better, becomes clear. each participant specifically learns to read the unique needs of each situation, seeking to discern the full potential range of benefits (risk vs reward) involved, including how to maximize their investment (return on effort) and when to push back against any distractions that could block the focus on their goals. AUTHENTIC-ALIGNMENT: Humans are born with an inherent need to find their sense of purpose in our chaotic existence and thereby receive whatever form of benefits they have got coming. As living, breathing, and thinking creatures we need to deeply ponder both what our basic obligations are to each other daily, as well as clearly define what our responsibilities are in resolving the more profound complexities of life. The necessity of dealing with this basic life perspective brings us to engage the ‘moment of truth’ where we naturally accept an ongoing stewardship-orientated, self-disciplined thought process about ‘who we are,’ and ‘why are we here’. Human nature is inherently protective of its self-interest; fixated on anticipating each encounter's outcome. Our stated objective is to maintain maximum effectiveness; therefore, we need to define and refine our outlook as it is now, versus what should our purpose transform into. AUTHENTIC-LIVING: intentionally creates a productive and satisfying lifestyle built upon personal accountability and hard work. In addition, ‘Living well’ also involves taking upon ourselves the bold initiative to continuously seek out new levels of desired satisfaction, even at the risk of being wrong. In addition, this infrastructure provides a ‘‘Home Base’ for those who engage in the noble sense of shared duty to others. Herein lies the unique challenge to the evolving ‘Living-well’ premise. When we push past our established emotional parameters, our actions create the need to recalibrate our internal sense of psychological balance. We must maintain a circle of acknowledged trusted advisors, these are mature mentors who help us incrementally reshape our expanded reality into a new dynamic outlook. We must continue to stay true to our advisor-group accountability and hold in high esteem the established character that empowers us to enjoy an abundant, spiritually mature productive lifestyle. Each generation must carefully guard their involvement in developing this multifaceted critical cultural component to its proper position of respect. one where compatible societal groups can freely exchange their views on current events. AUTHENTIC-RESPOUNDERS: This is where we need to agree with some version of the classic coaching axiom that states: ‘Life-long success is not based on whether you win or lose each matchup, but rather more importantly about how you played the game.’ When our cultural environment is active and vibrant with energetic interaction, we all become naturally alert stimulated, mentally healthy, and ready to respond to our community in moments of meaningful need. Yet, when that same economic environment stagnates and begins to inch along anemically, we find a dying cesspool reeking with decay as the people are out of work and have too much idle time on their hands. Therefore, when there is work to be done, missions to be led, crops to plant and harvest, or mountains to be moved, transformative opportunities are revealed that arise out of the changing conditions. Watch closely for these situations as they tend to highly benefit those of us who are in the daily habit of seeking something productive and worthwhile to do. This determined process reveals within each individual the infused natural confidence, discerning insightfulness, and enduring hope-filled momentum that when combined, generates the bright spark of divine enthusiasm. As thoughtful humans, we all share a familiar physical presence, one that can host diverse emotional frameworks, hard-wired to seek collaborative interactions. AUTHENTIC-LIVES: Freedom through Responsibility! This Mature-Mastery mentoring platform is an individually structured, community stewardship format from which anyone can virtually mentor others in the nature and nuance of living in this ever-changing world. These comprehensive mentoring platforms provide the intellectual guidance needed by each participant as they learn to maturely master their naturally-intuitive talents and skills. As each of us builds our foundation of confident character, we soon find ourselves drawn forward into establishing a set of habitual daily routines, ones that enable accountability to time-tested, proven disciplines and observational skills. To develop our character to its fullest potential, we must establish within ourselves the inner fortitude that reflects our core stubbornness to never give up our ‘people’ investments. When combined, they create an emotional 'wave" that will carry us forward in our endeavors. When there is work to be done, missions to be led, crops to plant and harvest, or mountains to be moved, find the project’s natural energy flow, then harness that energy to your purpose. AUTHENTIC: Freedom from Responsibility: What’s the point? Why are we here? What do you want? Is it any wonder that nearly every one of us is routinely surrounded by perpetually 'lost people" who want, as much as desperately need, a more meaningful life? Bear in mind, we are not simply referencing the hordes of destitute homeless people that roam our city streets in search of a safe space to sleep, for they need community help on many levels. These seemingly disengaged citizens appear determined to force unwanted changes on our traditional culture that could radically evolve into a bureaucracy-dominated faux-utopian society.: Herein lies the rub; typically, these uninspired people wish for a way to get life’s bounty bestowed upon them instead of sincerely asking for the practical tools to go to work with. Sadly, we are near the point where even the historically revered nature of our national independence (i.e., Liberty, Justice, and Freedom for All), is under relentless siege from within and without to mutate into an intrusive, and power-hungry centralized gatekeeper of wanton desires’ AUTHENTIC: Conflict Resolution: When we want to show solidarity with another person's circumstances, we need to express our utmost confidence in that person's ability to accept the nature of any situation, no matter how hopeless it may appear. Now we are impactfully participating at the critical pivot point of life, where physical work creates the satisfaction that releases the natural endorphin therapy that enables us to reemerge more robust and reenergized. We exponentially create emotion-infused momentum by combining optimistic, efficient expertise with bold confidence and joyous effort. The resulting productivity effect simply overflows our traditional attitude's situational expectations, which by default (unless channeled otherwise) floods the surrounding community members with the restorative power of full-throttle willingness and steadfast belief. This optimistically infused momentum naturally creates stewardship-orientated, divinely-energizing, inalienable fundamental rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. These fundamental rights are endowed on every human being by the Divine Creator. We must stop the endless, mind-numbing "what are we going to do about it" worries and concerns until the job is done; preferring instead to side-step any undetermined judgments associated with our instinctive "willingness to act" rapid respond-ability until all the facts are accounted for.
