Lessons from Ascend For July 4, 2017

The most important task of life is to grow out of narcissism into maturity. Yet most of us spend a lifetime avoiding this necessary first step. We build complex lives based on the scaffolding of immaturity (early mental models) and don’t even know it. We believe we are growing and developing when in reality we are adding floors to a structure that will demand a ransom sometime in the future. Our relationship with our true self is the upper limit on the quality of the  relationship with can achieve with anyone else and knowing ourselves as we truly are is the necessary pre-condition for both Joy and Effectiveness.

 

The essence of exponential potential is simple and can be expressed in several ways:

Full access to the real self=full access to others

Full access to the real self=powerful impact on others

Full access to the real self=full engagement with others

Full engagement to  the real self=love for self and others

Full engagement to  the real self=optimal adaptability

Full engagement with the real self=profound self and other knowledge

 

Easy to understand. Difficult to achieve. Even the pursuit itself is transformative.
