is a collaborative effort by people who believe in HUMAN POTENTIAL
that offers a new 21st century worldview and philosophy to live by
and a supportive environment that focuses on . . .
1 . HELPING YOU to “SELF-ACTUALIZE" and
discover, develop, and express your full potential for the
sense of"enjoyment" and"accomplishment" that results.
2 . HELPING YOU acquire a comprehensive set of beliefs,
values, ethics, goals, and sense of responsibility for the
well-being of SELF, SOCIETY, and ENVIRONMENT that
forms the foundation for who you are and become.
3 . HELPING YOU meet people and join forces with those who
share and support your concerns with whom to work together
in order to create the supportive environment in which the
human potential of yourself and others can flourish.
THE HELP AND SUPPORT being extended by the POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT is based upon the "universal" realization that ...
"Everyone needs 'something' that helps us as individuals make sense of our existence, provides explanations and direction, and helps us navigate through the conditions of existence we encounter in one's life."
A 21st Century Worldview and Philosophy to Live By
( What is that "something" ? )
YES ... we know ... most people think of "philosophy" as the last thing to be interested in. But, in reality, it shapes one's entire life and is the key to establishing one's personal identity. That's why it is so important to pick the right "worldview and philosophy to live by" as soon as possible. Not having one can lead to life-long frustration and disastrous consequences.
"Without a 'worldview and philosophy to live by', we're like a powerful ship
caught up in a vast sea of turbulent waters — without a navigation system."
(SOME ADDED CLARIFICATION MAY HELP)
Your "worldview" is your perception of reality and overall outlook on life, and your philosophy to live by" is the set of beliefs, values, ethics, morals, goals, strategies, behaviors, and sense of responsibility that serve as the very foundation for "who you are and become" and "what you make of your life".
And while we're clarifying some key concepts ... here's another important one to understand :
Why the emphasis on "SELF-ACTUALIZATION" you ask ???
Simply stated — there is a "primary motivating force" in all of nature that causes all life forms to seek their fullest growth and potential — whether it be a blade of grass, a deer in the forest, a fish in the ocean, or mankind. Most people think the primary drive is for "survival" — but survival for what ??? The best answer is "SELF-ACTUALIZATION" (experiencing the fullest extent of growth and potential). Simply stated. (This inherent motivation and drive by all life forms — is the"LIFE FORCE" behind life itself.) With this basic recognition and goal in mind — as in the case of mankind — the following key definition is important regarding what the POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT promotes as the key to having a truly fulfilling and meaningful life:
"SELF-ACTUALIZATION". . .
is the realization of human potential through the ongoing process of (1) being open to new experiences and possi-bilities and (2) fully and constructively developing and applying one's "talents" to one's "interests" for the sense of personal "enjoyment" and "accomplishment" that results.
THINK OF IT THIS WAY
If at the conclusion of life, you can sit back and
smile because you've experienced a real sense
of "enjoyment" and "accomplishment" in life (as a result of "fully expressing your potential"),
chances are that the question of "what makes
life meaningful ?" will have been fully answered. You will have truly achieved your "fulfilled life".
WHY WHAT THE POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT OFFERS IS SO IMPORTANT
Having a "worldview and philosophy to live by" — with the goal of . . .
"fully living up to your potential, having a job you love doing,
being around people you enjoy being with, and having a
real sense of enjoyment and accomplishment in life"
. . . is markedly different than the goal most people have — which is . . .
" I want to be rich and famous" ... or ... "just having nice things, family, & friends"
(without knowing what is necessary to achieve these results ... and only to
end up feeling that something important in life is still empty and missing.)
THE POTENTIALIST MOVEMENT . . .
represents a whole new approach toward making the most of life and the world around us.
