15 Things Energizing the Business Athlete® Will Help You Understand

  1. Lives crumble with the erosion of values – physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.
  2. Being well prepared – physically, mentally, and emotionally, and spiritually – doesn’t mean dramatic upheaval in our life. With the smallest investment, in the right places, we can radically transform our productivity at work, quality of life at home, and optimize time with our family while nurturing our planet in the process.
  3. Whatever our title, whatever our position, whatever our accomplishments, and whatever material “toys” and riches we may acquire, none of these can save us from becoming the wealthiest, and most recognized person in the cemetery – prematurely. And sadly, no business or good deeds can be done from there!
  4. There is more to life than increasing its speed, “chasing figures,” and giving priority to material values and “digital slavery!”
  5. For higher effectiveness and quality of life, we must start focusing on the value we produce rather than the speed of execution and the number of hours we work.
  6. Real leaders lead. Not mislead. Leadership is not a position or some title on a business card. Leadership is a decision to take care of other people’s physical, mental, and emotional wellbeing. And to do that effectively, you must pay the price of success with yourself first!

    Please take note: learning is an active process. None of the timeless truth principles of the EBA program will work unless you do!

  7. Health cannot be injected or acquired by ingesting “modern medicines” – it is achieved and maintained only by active participation in foundational laws of healthful living that govern the human body.
  8. Your mind, emotions, and body are instruments, and the way you align and tune them determines how well you play life.
  9. Modern society fails to recognize a universal truth: if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything!
  10. If we do not find ways to correct this imbalance ourselves – stop this man-made “technocratic race” that threatens our own existence and adopt “Less is More” as our guiding principle – the laws of nature will balance it for us.
  11. How can we develop deep ingrained human needs such as trust, cooperation, commitment, and loyalty when speed, impatience, and self-gratification have become the framework of society?
  12. Trust yourself! The very essence of confidence is self-trust – developing trustworthiness by doing what you say you’re going to do…even when no one else is looking!
  13. Character development always involves a choice, and temptation provides that opportunity. Integrated character – with ethical values, heart-based integrity, empathy, and moral strength at its core – coupled with pure motives, are the foundation of effective people.
  14. Ethical values are beliefs concerning what is important and just. Authentic people align their words and actions with their core values.
  15. Organizational leadership needs to understand a biological fact: high-stress work environments driven by self-indulgent authorities and their archaic management systems are bad for business – lowered productivity, trust and cooperation, ethicalness, engagement, human connectedness, caring, empathy, generosity…and ultimately, a bottom line!

Stay safe. Stay healthy. Serve others. And do what is right, not what is easy!
