Meaning, Purpose & Identity
Do we need a "Statue of Responsibility"
on the West Coast, to balance the "Statue of Liberty" on the East Coast?
Man's Search For Meaning by Viktor Frankl Frankl's meaning in life is to help others find theirs. Quotations Freedom, however,
is not the last word. Freedom is only part of the story and half of the truth. Freedom is but the negative aspect of the whole
phenomenon whose positive aspect is responsibleness. In fact, freedom is in danger of degenerating into mere arbitrariness
unless it is lived in terms of responsibleness. That is why I recommend that the Statue of Liberty on the East Coast be supplemented
by a Statue of Responsibility on the West Coast.

Who Am I? Self-Concept
- "I am creative / artistic!" vs "I am a person who is growing in creativity, and, a teacher who is MODELING
becoming more creative to my students, modeling the effort of trying to be more creative, since my students will be more successful
in the future if they try to be more creative."
Expectations - "I am a person
who meets, or tries to meet, the expectations of others." vs "I am a person who tries to be more like the person
I want to become, which is shaped by my own mission, values and beliefs, with appropriate consideration of the expectations
of others, and, a teacher who is MODELING becoming more like the person I want to be, to my students." (See Carl
Rogers - On Becoming a Person)

The Career Game - Fame, Money, Happiness?
Book: Who Are You and What Do You Want?
is the result of Ukleja and Lorber's search to find the common
thread in people who are noticeably happy and successful. As leadership coaches, they have observed that once someone knows
what their passions and values are, everything else falls into place. As a result, they developed an approach called 4-Dimensional
Thinking, which they have been using for the past twenty-five years with life-changing results. Each dimension offers a
series of thought-provoking questions to help guide the reader to their own conclusions. By the end of the process
the reader will experience a dramatic transformation: their life will be renewed and their relationships at home and work
will be vastly improved.
The First Dimension asks: Who are you and what do you want?
Your answer can take you to the core of your personal strengths, passions and aspirations. You will see through any imagination
gridlock that keeps you from going after your authentic goals.
The Second Dimension asks: Where
are you and why are you there? You can create your own life map once you understand how you have arrived where
you are right now. You will review your past choices, identify any faulty assumptions that have gone undetected and clarify
positive approaches that
are worth repeating.
The Third Dimension asks: What will
you do and how will you do it? It's great to dream, but whenever dreams collide with reality, reality
always wins. This dimension offers you practical advice on goal-setting to ensure a more successful journey.
Fourth Dimension asks: Who are your allies and how can they help? The relationships with family, loved
ones, friends and co-workers are key in accomplishing your life goals. No one does anything leading to lasting satisfaction
by him or herself. Identifying and aligning yourself with your allies is critical for lifelong success.
