Pamper Principles Introduced
The Pamper Principles are certain attributes that successful people share. These attributes are necessary to attain real success. Real success is not just about money, power or fame. Real success comes when you can end your day satisfied that you have succeeded at spending that day wisely, honestly and honorably.
I call these attributes the “Pamper Principles.” These are pillars of personal and professional power. These pillars support you, your endeavors, your wishes, your hopes and your desires. Once you learn to live by these principles you will find your journey becomes easier and more rewarding. I am sometimes called upon as an after dinner speaker to give this presentation.
Each letter in the word “Pamper” stands for a principle.
The first “P” stands for the word “Purpose.”
Many people spend a lot of time and energy trying to figure out the purpose of their lives. They want to know why they are here. They want to know what the plan is for their lives. They feel empty, unfulfilled and undirected. In response they spend hours, days or years searching for the answer to that very complicated question.
There will be more specifics about the Pamper Principles in later blogs.
The “A” in the Pamper Principles stands for “Attitude.”
You have heard it before. Attitude affects everything. Where you go on your journey is affected by your attitude. Having the right attitude is essential to success, happiness and fulfillment.
Modeling and Mentoring
“M” represents two important principles. The first is “Modeling.” That is the concept of seeking out a person who has what you have and modeling that behavior. It is a simple, yet not often followed, concept. If you want to be a great golfer, do what Tiger Woods does.
The second principle represented by “M” is “Mentoring.” Be a mentor to some one who needs help. It is rewarding, educational and fulfilling.
The second “P” in the Pamper Principles is “Passion.” Find your passion. What is it that makes you come alive? Your passion does not have to be your career. It can be a hobby. There is no limit on what you are passionate about. But find it. Follow it. Enjoy it. Revel in it.
“E” represents “Ethics.” There is no real success if you are not ethical. If you lack ethics, you lack peace in your life. When you are ethical in your personal and professional life you can end each day know that there is nothing out in the universe that is going to blindside you in the morning.
Finally, the last letter in the Pamper Principles. “R” is for “Respect.” Respect is a two-sided coin. You must have respect for others and you must have respect for yourself. The two go hand-in-hand. You will never get real respect until you respect yourself.
In subsequent posts these Pamper Principles will be explored further so that you can learn to incorporate them into your daily routines. When you do, you will be richly rewarded.
