Do you bring out the best in other people? Or do you bring out the stress in other people?

Do you bring out the best in other people? Or do you bring out the stress in other people?

When you understand human dynamics, your opportunity to learn how to bring out the best in people, whether you are their friend, family, collaborator, instructor, coach, employee, or employer, you master one of the most valuable, and most rare skillsets in humanity.

We are often times, myopically lost in the minutia of our own world, such that we are not continuously cognizant of how we, ourselves, are impacting others.

If we take the time to genuinely learn this particular dynamic, and as a consequence, leverage that to its greatest potential, we are all the more enriched for our having learned to do this.

By empowering the people around us to summon their very best, and reach for the ultimate solution, we are well on our way as true colleagues in whatever relationship we might have with that other party.

In our attempt to facilitate their having greater opportunity and achieving more of what they might be capable of achieving, we are taking the resources in our world and collectively helping to elevate them to ever greater heights, through our metaphysical connection with them.

When you have any form of a relationship, personal or professional, with a third-party, a dynamic is created that cannot be ignored in the scope of the potential that such a relationship might foster.

Conversely, if we are spending our time around people who are working to bring out the best in us, we are that much more capable of readily achieving everything that we might set our mind to.

It is only through the concerted effort of taking our internal resources and leveraging them to their greatest potential, that we are able to achieve new pinnacles in our own life path.

Conversely, if we spend our time surrounded by people who are only seeking to stress us out, we will instantly recognize our capacity to produce, decreasing as a direct result of coping with the stress that they are inflicting upon us on a regular basis.

The best way to ultimately succeed in life, is to eliminate the variables that cause stress, not of our making, and replace them with variables that are truly capable of empowering the very best in all of us.

Happy Saturday!

When I was 5 years old, I discovered that the lemon tree in the backyard + dixie cups + water and sugar and I was in business. I have been hooked on that ever since. In 1979, I borrowed $14,000 to create a brand new product... photographic greeting cards with no text on the inside, called Paradise Photography. That was the start of The Illusion Factory. Since then, The Illusion Factory has been entrusted by all of the major studios and broadcasters with the advertising and marketing of over $7 billion in filmed, live, broadcast, gaming, AR, VR and regulated gaming forms of entertainment, generating more than $100 Billion in revenue and 265 awards for creativity and technology for our clients. When I took a break from film school at UCLA to move to Hawaii, my mother did not lecture me. Instead, she took 150 of her favorite aphorisms and in her beautiful calligraphy, wrote them artistically throughout a blank journal. That is the origin of the Lessons from the Mountain series. Since then, on my journeys to the top of a mountain to watch the sunrise, I have spent countless hours contemplating words of wisdom from the sages of all races, genders and political persuasions, constantly accumulating the thoughts to guide me on my life path. I hope you enjoy my books. Please let me know your thoughts, as I highly value your feedback!
