A Primer on Compassionate, Proactive Self Leadership and Personal Accountability … for conversations at the kitchen table
What have you enjoyed about Tom’s work? What do you agree (or disagree) with?
Have you talked this with friends or family?
Please let us know!
Here’s an extract I like, which offers a little more on Tom’s approach:
“Many of us have not been aware of two essential components of human consciousness, the Negative Automatic Program, or ‘NAP’, and Spiritual Amnesia. This doubly unfortunate lack of awareness severely limits our experiences of awakening our personal potentials. I call this way of being ‘Not Playing with a Full Deck’. The truth is we were all dealt a full deck of cards for playing the game of life. However, none of us were made aware of the Two Jokers, the NAP and Spiritual Amnesia. When we feel confused, frustrated, and unfulfilled; and conclude that we have not been ‘Playing With A Full Deck'; the problem has not been too few cards, but two too many.”
Part 5: RESPONSE-ABILITY
Excerpt: “Donna approached me after class and asked, “Will you be my mentor?” She wanted for us to meet at least once a week for a few hours of counseling and coaching, have me give her assignments for reading and journaling, and be available just about any time for a phone call.
I knew she was sincere and committed. I had been blessed with a few mentors when I most needed them, and I had served as a mentor several times. I was happy to accept her invitation.
“What will it cost?” she asked.“
