1.3) AUTHENTIC-MINDSET: Steward leaders understand the need for role-modeling mentors that will wholeheartedly accept their obligation to demonstrate personal responsibility and accountability. They understand that without individual responsibility, social collapse becomes inevitable as nations, communities, and family structures unravel at their very core. Thankfully, personal responsibility is infectious, as humans are innately hard-wired to seek out the challenges of our lives, as well as psychologically driven to strive for better. This fundamental level of determination to improve our circumstances hums instinctively in our deepest thouhts, much like a furnace pilot light, we can suppress it or try to ignore it but is still there. Functioning at the involuntary level of our psyche, this primordial desire has dominated the perspectives and perceptions of every individual from every generation throughout the millenniums. There is no neutral ground regarding this human compulsion, as cultures continually regenerate the philosophies of their preceding populaces in the never-ending pursuit of everlasting nirvana, convinced that the resulting satisfaction will infinitely fill their souls.
1.4) AUTHENTIC-MINDSET: Context-Context-Context! Obviously, we are describing these issues in the broadest sense of the terms in an effort to establish a philosophical premise to this discussion. The question on the table is simply this, does imposed “greater good” accomplishments by our societies as a whole, filter down to satisfying, long-lasting fulfillment on the individual level? Does relegating the individual to playing a societal version of “follow the leader” constitute living a full and productive life? In other words, can a civilization based on compelling its citizens to "fall in line" to the “greater good,” be able to produce a vibrant, healthy society? If we achieved such a societal utopia, from where would the individual derive their internal drive to overcome obstacles, their inspiration to innovate solutions to challenges old and new, and their compassion for all fellow beings to realize true freedom.
1.5) AUTHENTIC-MINDSET: Freedom FROM Responsibility: So, it is sadly unfortunate that somewhere along the way, far too many people became complacent with this world as it is, and tried to force us to radically evolve into a freedom-from responsibility-dominated society. They seem to prefer to believe that their current level of understanding is satisfactory, as they proceed to convince their inner-selves that learning something new is generally just a lot of extra work. Herein lies the rub, far too many people are wishing for a way to get life’s bounty bestowed upon them, instead of asking for practical tools to go to work. Yet, when they are confronted by alternative opinions that contradict their own, or even well-documented experiences which may be in contrast to their comfort zone, they naturally default into mindless, knee-jerk reactionary mode and just reject it, having already decided to feel threatened and defensive. They know just enough to be dangerous, and they can’t be wrong! Still, they are unable to see the truth as it stands before them.
Freedom THROUGH Responsibility! When we apply the personal responsibility aspect to the utopian concept and build our societies from the ground up, a radically different paradigm emerges. This governance for and by the people acknowledges that it is possible to create an orderly, organized society that allows and expects each individual to develop to their full potential, a society that effectively functions collectively while providing the latitude for each person to achieve life, liberty, and the pursuit of their own happiness. In this context, communal needs of social infrastructure are within the context of necessary utilities designed to provide a steady platform from which individual aspirations can launch. In other words, the bottom-up societal structure views the potential of the human-spirit as the first and foremost responsibility that each individual must embrace, followed by willing participation in the civilized dance of cooperative existence. Move Forward!
1.6) AUTHENTIC-MINDSET: Engrained Sovereign Maturity™ identifies the fundamental, species-wide human-nature associated common traits and behavioral aspects that intentionally boil down and condense into alignment with our committed faithful Belief in a Higher Spiritual Purpose. For instance, if you knew that you had the complete, sovereign freedom over your life to choose anything that you could think to want, what would it be? This doesn't need to be a complicated or hard question to answer. Anything and everything is on the table to choose from, the only requirement is that you are willingly prepared and committed to accept the follow-through work involved in exercising good stewardship care of what you own. We are not talking about mere lip-service compensation for an uninspired existence, rather this is the proven mindset we need to grow into the fullness of our God-given potential. Bottom-Line: Authenticity requires personal vulnerability. Less Perfection! More Transparency & Integrity! Be Yourself. Be Real Be Genuine. Humility creates emotionally infused momentum that overflows with the restorative power of pure faith-based belief, and creative, productive work. Herein, we find true fulfillment, as we strive to live generous lives in concert with communities of faithful believers in the pursuit of Authentically, Abundant Joyfulness, every day! Remember, "This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it!" Psalms 118.24!
AUTHENTIC-LIVES INTRODUCTION: Authentically Abundant Joyfulness is a renewable, hope-inspired natural resource that perpetually empowers all of us to thoughtfully 0overcome our earthly struggles. Deep within us, we all innately know that everyone lives a better life within a mutually benevolent society, specifically when it is sustainably maintained as a standard function of ordinary individuals acting on their own free will. We must always remember that the best experiences compel us to stretch our sense of self as we expand our ability to gain Mature-Mental-Mastery over our internal mental narrative and effectively overcome life's most formidable and rewarding challenges.
1.2) Throughout Our Lives most of the activities that we will engage in require that we just learn what task to do each day; even though it is equally as important to correctly know how and why we are doing that job in the first place! We must consistently remind each other that every single experience that we encounter creates knowledge-based insightfulness, which in turn allows our actions to be wisely guided and accordingly productive. Determined personal character combined with empowering sovereign values, creates a rugged optimistic lifestyle that has enabled previous generations to enjoy the benefits of collective cultural success!
1.3) Freedom-Minded People thrive on an enhanced sense of shared responsibilities within an inherent cultural premise. Never take for granted the foundational value of the enshrined inalienable rights that constitute our liberty of thought and actions. When given a choice, freedom-minded people of all types instinctively recognize the need for truth, honor, and a bold sense of shared duty as they engage in their inherent cultural stewardship responsibilities. When we couple our familiar, guarded temperament with the latitude of grace-filled steadfast attitude, these natural law-based premises establish our happiness autonomy. This is a renewable, hope-inspired natural resource that empowers all of us to thoughtfully overcome our earthly struggles.
1.4) As Beneficiaries of the most prosperous, freedom-loving nation in global history, we are dutifully bound to an inherent cultural responsibility, one that we are expected to hold in sacred trust for future generations. This inherent obligation is very straightforward, it simply expects each successive generation to approach their innate life challenges as actively involved participants in an ongoing interactive learning process (mentoring). We must consistently remind each other that every single experience that we encounter creates knowledge-based insightfulness, which in turn allows our actions to be wisely guided and accordingly productive. Through this systematic relationship, each participant is expected to experience, document, and record then pass forward their cumulative understanding of how to live a prosperous lifestyle.
1.5) Abundant Opportunity eventually brings upon us the realization that the overall quality of our life is a direct reflection of the amount of simple willingness and patience we extend to the people in our life. Further to the point, an urgent need continuously builds within us to correct our lack of any grateful recognition of the people in our lives. When we experience this intellectual gleaning process, we become morally emboldened to de-cluttering our minds from dead-weight pessimistic thinking. We must pull together with diverse groups of people from all walks of life to wisely train our core habits to reflect our willing confidence and produce steadfast character every day!
1.6) Motivation, Momentum, and Maturity are people skills that naturally developed throughout each individual's entire lifetime and are only limited by their own willingness to engage in diverse learning experiences, specifically the kind that challenges them to grow their unique perception of themselves. Those who possess natural curiosity, inherent talent, and thoughtful willingness, must accept a personal-growth-based education point in their life; specifically, the ones that suppress life's natural optimistic exuberance cloud the luscious mind.
