"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

AWARENESS: (initial recognition of value in oneself and of connectivity to all else; a sense of peace)

EMOTION: (positive feeling and a sense of cosmic well-being; quiet joy)

INTENTION: (establish clear purpose in journeying towards significance)

OWNERSHIP: (enlightened by purpose, assuming responsibility for oneself and for one's place in the cosmos)

UNDERSTANDING: (awakening towards a higher purpose and a new sense of awareness)

Corporate bodies design their destinies with statements for vision, missions, goals and strategies. This is mainly a bureaucratic exercise, often meant to satisfy auditors and shareholders. In some rare cases, they do live up to their intentions. But, what needs to inhabit the core of very employee's heart, is a sense of purpose.

Everything else has been crafted as something you can eventually achieve. But a purpose is something you fulfill. This happens in every molecule of your heart, each moment that you are in harmony with who you really are.

When you know your purpose for being, you experience epiphany: the vision, mission, goals and strategies fall right in place!
