A Framework for Increasing Your Self Awareness and Building Your Personal Purpose Statement
Ken’s Blanchard’s Foreword in David E. Nielson’s book “The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success – It’s All About You” convinced me that I was in for a life molding read. Recent personal circumstances indicate that I am moving into a new season of life, a reason to re-examine my life purpose. The use of bright colors highlighting features, charts, and illustrations sets this book apart from and establishes a new standard for motivational books of the future.
Nielson begins by asking the reader to consider two elements: knowing your life purpose and self-awareness. He then adds a third; social awareness. Nielson then transitions to introduce six more elements; these with an external focus.
I enjoyed Nielson’s common sense approach, his use of humor, his skill in using the elements of a good story, and his keen sense of relating to the reader’s life journey, self-discovery and purpose. The exercises included in five appendices are essential to getting the most out of your reading. Chapter endnotes include excellent suggestions for future reading and indicate the broad base of sources from the well-known leader’s in areas of personal success and personal growth.
David Nielson is a management consultant specializing in a change in business strategy and management through leadership development and training. His work is highly endorsed by leaders in finance, education, and industry.
“The 9 Dimensions of Conscious Success – It’s All About You” is for anyone wanting to operate on a higher level, to find purpose and a better self-awareness.
