Yeah Ronald! +1 spark for your awesome video :) And you even got someone else to vouch for you - if I could have given you two points, the second one would have been for Collaboration.

I love this video Ronald! This illustrates something so simple but so fundamental, this being that it is often so difficult to see yourself as someone with great strengths and abilities. This can prove to be a huge problem because this lack of self belief (sometimes referred to as low levels of self-efficacy) can prevent people, with lots of potential, from taking positive action for themselves. I have a great example, in this case study of a project from Ethiopia, of how when this attitude is reversed, amazing things can happen. The project is called ABCD and was run by Oxfam.



It's mission is simple - show people that they have amazing strengths and abilities that can be used for the development of themselves and the community. This is self-actualisation in action and it rocks!

Interestingly, this also reminds me of a theory developed to describe the way in which successful entrepreneurs think. It is called effectual reasoning which basically says that to start a business one looks at all of the resources available to them at that time which include skills, abilities, qualifications, knowledge, passions as well as physical "stuff" like a computer, a sewing machine etc. Combine all of this and think "what sort of a business would a person with all of these resources start?". If you look at super successful entrepreneurs - this is the way they have progressed from nothing to, in some cases, lots of success.

Blimey - I'm tired now - time to lie down and dream! But don't forget - recognising that we all have inner resources is SUPER power!

Excellent work. Ronald.
Simon, your theory of how successful entrepreneurs discover new ventures... sounds a lot like Quest #1: Secret Identity, don't you think?

Indeed it does Alchemy which is another reason why it is important that all players complete this quest! The guru of effectuation is Saras Sarasvathy. Lots of cool reading on her website if anyone wants to find out more:

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

In addition the Stinging Nettle consists…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
