You and I are created as emotional and spiritual creatures, created to live fully. We find life to the full through emotional and spiritual relationship with ourselves, others, and God. We cannot find full life otherwise. We are predesigned to find fulfillment in relationship.

We are all created the same. Based upon the DNA of human beings, we are approximately 99.9% the same. We are only .1% unique! Take a moment to ponder the power of .1%. Not a single one of us looks exactly the same, acts the same, thinks the same, and yet we are remarkably similar as to what we need in order to thrive, which is what DNA seeks—thriving and prosperity.
Just as the cellular life functions similarly in us, so does the DNA of our emotional and spiritual makeup. Consider the expressive power of the .1%, and then imagine the change our admission of being 99.9% the same could mean. Our sameness is much more powerful than our uniqueness, if we would but admit and accept our 99.9%.
Admitting and accepting this design tears down the walls we build and hide behind, while we still have identity boundaries. We live available to growing into who we are created to become and doing what we are created to do—give ourselves to living fully.

The fullest life is the life of maximum service, sharing what gifts you have developed with a world in need of who you are and what you do. This fulfillment can be raising one child with love, or affecting the prosperity of a whole nation. The result is the same in fulfillment.
The genesis of living fully, or being 100% available to living, requires that we feel our feelings, tell the truth about our internal experience, and give ourselves to the process (God owns the process of how life works). This process is how we develop into thriving, prosperous people, who then offer thriving and prosperous conditions to others.
As we do so, we grow into people of passion, intimacy, and integrity. Passion is a willingness to be in pain for something or someone that is greater than our comfort. Intimacy is the experience of being known by others from the inside out, and vice versa. Integrity is the capacity to live courageously, truthfully, and humbly and keep one’s behaviors consistent with this character.
The fullest life is the life of maximum service, sharing what gifts you have developed with a world in need of who you are and what you do.
Passion becomes living fully in intimacy. Intimacy becomes loving deeply with integrity. Integrity becomes leading well a life worth emulating and honoring. The three growth areas lead us to living fully, loving deeply, and leading well.
I have spoken, counseled, consulted, and written extensively about our condition, its possibilities, and its blessings. Thousands of peoples’ lives have been prospered through the experiences of these basic truths, which I have expanded upon in all the materials I have developed with the help of many others. The material is not theory. The material moves us into experiencing thriving and prosperity.
