The road to success and happiness is challenging. There are many obstacles and adversities to overcome. How does a person achieve their greatest potential in the midst of so much stress and competition? These are realities that they just didn’t teach us in school.
One of the most important things you can do for yourself, and your ability to achieve your desired destiny, is to find a system of strategies for personal development, success, and happiness that will elevate your potential, production, and performance into the stratosphere. You need to become the best that you can be, and you need the means to do so. You owe it to yourself to give this success thing your best shot possible.
Any legitimate system of strategies for growth and development, must acknowledge the complex nature of people and their struggle to achieve success and happiness. Comprehensiveness, not complexity, is the key to a good system for success.
A Multifaceted Approach
Life, people, personal development, and success are complex and multifaceted (See “The Depth of Human Optimization™—Part One”). This means that a system of strategies for personal and organizational growth and development must also be multifaceted. It must, at its very foundation, acknowledge the diverse nature of individuals, and allow for the diverse application of strategies depending on the needs and makeup of the person.
In the strictest sense “balance” is not possible or even desirable. It is important to realize that growth and development must take place in multiple arenas of life for us to truly succeed and find happiness. But this will never happen in a balanced fashion.
Human Optimization™ recognizes this, and encourages the development of skill as well as the enhancement of peace (well-being or wellness) simultaneously. You cannot concentrate on one at the expense of the other. (See “Human Optimization™: Developing Skills and Enhancing Peace”)
It is impossible to succeed without giving specific attention to both the development of skill and peace (well-being or wellness). Ignore either and you will not only limit your achievement of success and happiness, you will effectively halt your progress, and you may also experience some sort of breakdown.
But the multifaceted nature of Human Optimization™ extends even further. The success strategies of Human Optimization™ also identify several other facets of life that contribute to success and happiness.
The Many Facets of Human Optimization™
There is not one “golden ticket” to success. If someone tells you there is, they are trying to sell you something (See “The ‘Key’ to Success: Is There Such a Think?—Part One”). You cannot develop one single skill and then hope to succeed. You can’t focus only on your well-being (personal peace), and then expect to overcome all obstacles. Many factors contribute to the achievement of success and happiness.
“Human Optimization™ is just a tool, you are the key to success and happiness.” (Gerald Paul – aka “G”)
We need to recognize that there are many aspects to the human experience, and therefore many areas in which we must strive to grow and develop. We will never be equally competent in every area; nonetheless, we must still be aware that success strategies must be applied to each area, though not always equally.
Human Optimization™ recognizes that there are many aspects to the human experience and the quest for success and happiness. As such, it incorporates strategies for growth and development in each.
Human Optimization™ is, in fact, an umbrella term. It embodies the application of strategies to all aspects of the human experience, and as such is broken down into several categories: Peace Optimization™, Self Optimization™, Thought Optimization™, Emotional Optimization™, Physical Optimization™, Leadership Optimization™, Team Optimization™, Work Optimization™, World Optimization™, Resource Optimization™, Relationship Optimization™, Family Optimization™, and Spiritual Optimization™. All these various components contribute the effective achievement of Human Optimization™, or human development.
The Depth of Human Optimization™
You may choose to categories things a little differently—many do—but that is not the point. The point is that our lives are complex and dynamic in nature. There are many interrelated aspects to our lives that cry out for our attention. We can choose to ignore the many voices, but we do so to our own detriment. Human Optimization™ applies sound strategies to each aspect of our multifaceted lives.
Many people are satisfied to become the best that they can be within predefined perimeters. They may wish to become the best that they can be at work, or financially, or in their family, but that single minded approach is self-limiting, and less than “Human Optimization™” would seek to achieve.
Human Optimization™ encourages a multifaceted approach to personal development and self improvement. Engage these strategies, and you will dramatically increase your potential for success and happiness.
Human Optimization™ has depth. It is a comprehensive system of strategies for personal development and the achievement of success and happiness. It does not make grandiose promises, or proclaim a one key to success strategy—there is no such thing. But it will give you the necessary tools to achieve the success and happiness that you desire and deserve.
Success requires focused, consistent, and dedicated effort. It is not for the faint of heart, or lazy of mind. That is just the way of things. Human Optimization™ is just a tool, you are the key.

I don’t advise you to put all your success eggs into one basket. There are many good sources for knowledge and expertise in the world. Many of them have the potential to be of great use to you. The strategies for success and happiness found in Human Optimization™ are not necessarily the be all and end all. It would be arrogant to suggest that they are.
But this web site and the strategies found here have helped many people and they can help you. They are based on sound principles that have worked throughout the ages.
Here is the bottom line. You are what matters. You are the only you that you have. And only you care about your own success and happiness as much as you do. Find a source of strategies for success and happiness that will help you become the best that you can be, and that will cheer you on as you do so.
I hope that you will continue to apply the ideas of strategies of Human Optimization™ so that you may take advantage of your own multifaceted nature.
Don’t settle for second best. Achieve the destiny you dream about.
