College can be too idealistic and doesn’t prepare one for the REAL world

Michelle Obama talked frankly about PERSONAL EFFECTIVENESS and personal growth in her last commencement speech as the First Lady.

“Because they are ill-equipped to handle their first encounter with disappointment or falling short. Life will put many obstacles in your path that are far worse than a bad grade. You’ll have unreasonable bosses, difficult clients, and patients. You’ll experience illnesses and losses, crises and setbacks, that will come out of nowhere and knock you off your feet.”
~ Michelle Obama

College can be too idealistic and doesn’t prepare one for the REAL world: the disappointments, office politics, power play backstabbing, betrayals, relationship-family-marriage problems, trauma, death in the family, disillusionment in your faith and leaders you trusted.

Personal effectiveness is about unravelling your 90% ICEBERG. Your iceberg is your PSYCHE, the hidden side of your mind, heart, soul, and spirit in contrast with your body, the physical side of you. The iceberg includes your dark side and light side.

Personal effectiveness is about dealing with your DARK SIDE. Your dark or negative side includes your hang-ups, deep-rooted fears, limiting beliefs, temptations, hurts, over-sensitivities, panic buttons, insecurities, regrets, worries, anxieties, depression, anger, mood swings, addictions, breakdowns, stress, crises, trauma, and your EVIL side.

Personal effectiveness is about self-actualizing your LIGHT SIDE. Your light or positive side includes your latent talents, potentialities, skills, drive, what makes you tick, vision, mission, core values, fulfilment, and finding your purpose and meaning in life.

Personal effectiveness is about building the 6 pillars of SELF-ESTEEM: awareness, accountability-ownership, acceptance, assertiveness, integrity, and living purposefully.

Personal effectiveness is about climbing your EVEREST. Your Everest is your life goals, passion, achievements, fulfilment, and the legacy you leave behind when you are gone.

Personal effectiveness means in order to achieve the highest goals you want through EVEREST CLIMBING, the more you need to go to the very depths of DEEP-SEA or ICEBERG DIVING. This means TRANSFORMING your dark side to the light side, shifting your paradigm from negative to positive, moving from victimhood and blaming others (“why me, they did this to me, everyone is out to get me”) to OWNERSHIP, and being 100% responsible for your life and all the CHOICES you make.

NO ONE is coming to rescue you!
God helps those who HELP themselves first.
You cannot achieve your highest goals in life without first going to the very depths of your self.

Personal effectiveness is about MINDSET CHANGES, leadership, soft skills, inter-personal and communications skills, transforming your thoughts, words, actions, mindset, attitudes, and behaviors – all of which can lead to culture changes in organizations and CSR (corporate social responsibility) in societies.

You cannot discover your “BLIND SPOTS” through reading books, and education. Because blind spots are aspects of “you don’t know what you don’t know”. Blind spots are not likely to be revealed by your friends because they don’t want to offend you
You are most likely to discover your blind spots brutally from your enemies.

Where do you find clues to your blind spots?
If an incident is small but your reaction is very strong or BIG, this is a clue to your blind spots and deep-rooted suppressed life issues. If an incident is huge but your reaction is TINY, then you could be numb or in denial of the TRUTH. These are good places to start your self-discovery…

Or you can go on an ODYSSEY, an epic life journey to “places” you have never been before – places in your heart, mind, spirit, your dark & light side. You can drastically shorten your life’s learning curve by joining a private group who will journey with you.

This Metamorphosis Journey is called “PAPILLON Personal Effectiveness PowerCamp”. Papillon means butterfly in French. Live a great life of FULFILLMENT.

Papillon will prepare you for real world, the 8 LIFE AREAS: self, family, relationships, health, wealth, social, spirituality, and career.

91% of participants feel that Papillon is one of their life’s very rewarding experiences.
