Conscious Growth

What does it mean to grow as a conscious human being?

Conscious growth means aligning yourself with certain core principles which serve as growth accelerators. When you live in alignment with them, you experience faster, more consistent progress and deeper levels of fulfillment. When you fall out of alignment and violate these principles, you'll usually feel like you're not progressing, and life seems less fulfilling.

The beauty of these principles is that they're effective for all types of growth and change. You can use them to improve your career, your finances, your relationships, your skills, your health, and more.

The seven core principles of growth are:

Truth

See reality as it is.
Free yourself of false beliefs.

Love

Feel good in your own skin.
Explore deeper connections.

Power

Create your desires.
Build motivation and discipline.

Oneness

Make the world your ally.
Stop creating resistance.

Authority

Make strong decisions.
Take command of your life.

Courage

Act in spite of fear.
Summon your inner strength.

Intelligence

Live authentically.
Express your creativity.
