“Most people have no idea of the giant capacity we can immediately command when we focus all of our resources on mastering a single area of our lives.” — ANTHONY ROBINS, author and motivational speaker (1960-Present)
Human beings have an extraordinary capacity to imagine possibilities and then turn those possibilities into realities. Evident in the gifts of civilization — in our arts, languages, sciences, technologies, businesses, governments, and so on — it is clear that we are a profoundly creative species.
How might your life be improved if you were to fully develop your creative capacities? What’s the first thing that you would set out to create for yourself, or for others, if you knew you had the power to do so?
Actualization is the art of making things happen. It enables us to see our hopes, dreams and ambitions through to fruition, giving them actual form in our everyday lives. It requires three basic ingredients:
- Conception — developing an intention that is vital, clear and focused.
- Willpower — gathering the energy to nurture and support this intention.
- Resource — forming integral partnerships with the people and things around you to support the birth and maturity of your intention, contextualizing it in a greater wave of similar, collective intentions.
The User’s Guide to Being Human: The Art and Science of Self was written to support people in accessing the many capacities with which they were born, and to help them apply those capacities in order to actualize the lives they dream of leading.
