Personal and organizational growth and development are a mandatory component in the pursuit of success and happiness. In almost thirty years as a success life coach and professional speaker I have seen countless people fall short of their dreams and desires simply because they are unwilling to engage in the pursuit of personal and organizational growth and development. Those who do succeed always give these important matters the highest priority.
The strategies of “Human Optimization™,” found on this site, will enable you to maintain your focus on personal and organizational growth and development. If you commit yourself to these strategies and principles, then you will ensure your continued growth and development. This will keep you moving in the direction of success and happiness.
I hope you will avail yourself to the ideas and strategies of Human Optimization™. With that in mind I would like to introduce you to “The Birth and Development of Human Optimization™.”
Is Growth and Development Really that Important?
What separates successful people from unsuccessful people, is not their good looks, personal charm, or natural intelligence. In every case, successful people realize the importance of growth and development for themselves and their people. They do not shy away from the hard work of initiating change in their lives. They realize that they must do whatever they can to continually improve themselves and their organization.
You are never stagnant. You are either growing or diminishing. You are increasing your potential for success, or you are decreasing your potential for success. You are never simply standing still.
If you wish to maintain good physical health you must workout consistently. The moment you stop, your health will begin to decline. This regularly comes up when I’m training at the gym. People comment about how the wish they could reach a desired level of fitness, and then simply maintain that with no effort. Unfortunately, it just doesn’t work that way—nothing in life does.
This is equally true in our personal and professional lives. If you are not developing your potential for success, then you are increasing the likelihood of failure.
It takes consistent dedicated effort to reach your ultimate potential. This reality is what makes strategies for growth and development like “Human Optimization™ so important to your success and happiness.
Defining Moments of Destiny
Life is filled with defining moments of destiny: moments of discovery, moments of decision, moments of realization, moments of commitment, moments of insightful clarity. These moments can change the course of our lives. Sometimes these moments pass us by, and we are unaware that anything of significance has happened—we do this to our own detriment. Other times, these moments can impact us deeply, and in some cases will determine our destiny.
Are you aware of the moments that stand as crossroads in your life? They are worth taking note of. They can change your course of action, and define your destiny in a heartbeat and in ways you cannot imagine.
One of my own moments of insightful clarity came several years ago when I formulated a system of strategies for success and happiness called “Human Optimization™. I have a life long love for personal and organizational development and self improvement, and I have dedicated myself to helping people succeed and find happiness. I do this as a success life coach and motivational keynote speaker.
I will always remember the day that changed my course of action, shaped my thinking, formed my strategy, and defined my destiny. It doesn’t get much cooler than that!
A Date With Destiny
I will never forget the day I experience a “eureka” moment of great magnitude. A moment of discovery and realization that would transform my life and thought, and form the basis for a new system of personal development and self improvement strategies.
“Eureka” is the Greek word meaning “I find.” That is why we use it as a declaration of discovery, an exclamation of triumph at a discovery, or an expression of our “aha” moments. When someone suddenly finds something of importance it is appropriate, perhaps even common, for them to shout, “Eureka!” —or to at least think it. It describes that light bulb experience that we all encounter from time to time: a moment of realization, of sudden awareness, or of profound understanding.
I was sitting at my computer one day working hard on my website. I had no formal training in website design or development, and so I was educating myself in HTML code—which I have since thankfully left behind—and was exploring the world of SEO, or “Search Engine Optimization.”
I wanted my website to be as effective as possible, so that I could influence as many people as possible. Let’s face it, website are great, but if nobody can find your site then it is not doing anyone much good. My livelihood, and my desire to help people, depended on learning as much as I could about SEO.
I could have hired someone to do this work for me, but then I would have been left in the dark, and completely dependent on someone else’s knowledge to move me forward. And lets face it, no one is as interested in my success as I am. So it was important to at least learn some of the so called “SEO Secrets,” so that I could at least recognize what is important and what is not.
As I focused hard on the many things that I needed to learn in order to make my motivational keynote speaker website most effective, I experienced an amazing moment of discovery. “Eureka!”

This was a defining moment for me. You have also had defining moments. Do you know what they are? Always remember them. Imprint them on your mind and in your heart. Allow them to speak to you. They can be a source of strength and motivation in difficult or challenging times.
The defining moments in our lives often pass us by because we are too busy to notice them, or too preoccupied to see the opportunities before us. Even worse, we miss our date with destiny because we were not prepared to take advantage of an opportunity. Prepare now, be ready later.
You must be ready when your opportunity for greatness presents itself. It’s impossible to lay the foundation for a shelter in the midst of a storm. You cannot wait till opportunity knocks before you prepare yourself for action. By then it will be to late.
Prepare now! Start today! Don’t wait another moment before you begin the journey to achieving your potential.
The ideas and strategies of Human Optimization™, found on this website, are here to help you maximize your potential and become the person you were born to be, so that you can take full advantage of every defining moment and every date with destiny.
