American philosopher and Yale professor Brand Blanchard offered the following observation on the importance of self-knowledge: “The richness of a life depends not only on the amount of #happiness it achieves but on finding out who one is, that is about ones unique combination of powers, and then discovering through experiment and reflection what course of life will fulfill those powers most completely.”

Once we commit to discover and develop our greatest powers we can invest our true wealth which places us above the realm of competition and into the realm of excellence. Creating is the outcome of excellence.
