There is a new and better way to better way to apply “self-help” toward becoming a better executive,leader, manager, teacher, mother, father, professional or volunteer. It works because it is based ondeeply personal, individualized moral imperatives. It activates the conscience. Let me be so bold as toask you, do you have a moral compass? Do you know the general direction of good versus bad? Even if you’re not exactly sure of what is truly good or virtuous, I bet you’re pretty damn sure of what is bad or void of virtue.Determine the general good direction (inspired by love) in which you want to head and then buildguardrails to keep your daily behavior on the road of success. Don’t veer off into the ditch on one sideor oncoming traffic on the other! Instead focus straight ahead and upward toward enlightened self interest.Remember, this is a personal, moral undertaking. Your own conscience will be the enforcer of your actions toward victory and success.Study and work on daily the graduation to fulfillment in this framework and delight in how much better your efforts start paying off. Let each private victory confirm your faith and encourage your nextmeasure of growth.
