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.
