Are you stuck in the Tyranny of the “OR” ?

                               "OR Versus "AND" .... Another TheoryOf5 Philosophy

My mentors and I believe most people think they are realistic about what they want in life. We understand not everyone wants to work 60 to 90 hours a week to become a multimillionaire. They don’t need to earn a doctorate just to find satisfying work. They don’t need to be an elite athlete to simply stay in shape. From my own experience and from the experiences of my mentors, we hear most people say, “I want to make a good living and have a balanced life shared with friends and family.”

Before diving into the lessons and practices of the Theory of 5, we would caution you to not get stuck into a limiting concept called “The Tyranny of the OR.” This concept, described by author and business consultant James C. Collins, comes into play when people believe they have to make a choice between what they consider to be two contradictory paths. “I can live a balanced life OR I can have prosperity,” for example. “I could be a good husband OR a good father.” Collins went on to describe an extremely liberating strategy called “The Genius of the AND.” All of my mentors prescribe to this concept. They discovered and implemented the daily behaviors needed to have a balanced/harmonious life AND create prosperity. They take the time to maintain and improve their health AND spend quality time with their families. Does this happen overnight? No. Will it happen if we put in the proper time, extreme effort and laser focus? Absolutely. Limiting ourselves to certain options before even considering we could have it all ensures limited results. The Theory of 5 will guide you in achieving that balance and dominating one or all of its specific areas. It will allow you to find success and achieve your dreams
