"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."

In order to march forward, it is best to know where you are. The status quo then offers itself for growth.

For each of the paired attributes below, mark a cross on the horizontal line to indicate your present perceived level of development. The ideal is to be alive with all the qualities in the right-hand column.

Once you have completed all the markings, join the points to form a profile.

We are not born with these nine attributes. But we have the capacity to acquire & develop them, inspired by our prevailing beliefs & values.

Don't be discouraged if you have scored low on any of the attributes. Use that awareness as a trampoline to catapult you forward.

Do this exercise every three months to monitor your growth.
