Why Acmeology Might Just Be Your Life’s Missing Piece
Why Acmeology Might Just Be Your Life’s Missing Piece
Everyone faces multiple challenges in life. Some of these challenges are so big they affect us directly and immediately. Other ones, seemingly small, add up to make their presence felt gradually.
Ironically, these stress issues are so common, that somehow, on the sly, they have become “the new normal” (parallel intended): we all hate stress, we all know how disruptive stress is to our lives, it has been proven that stress causes health issues, it keeps us from being who we are – and yet, we have along ago assumed that stress is a necessary evil, and that nothing can be done about it.
A stressed-out employee or an aspiring entrepreneur, who is struggling daily with productivity and time management.
This is “normal”, right? Or no? What about that 4-hour work-week or running a prosperous business from the Maui Beach – the picture that got you into deciding to start your business in the first place?
Someone trying to heal from past trauma, or simply worn down by a long-standing battle with anxiety and depression.
Have you given up all hope to rise over your past and become yourself again? Yes, it will take time. But don’t you give up, please!
A working mom exhausted by having to juggle home and family life with her career.
That’s me, actually. 5 kids, a full time job and a budding business. But I REFUSE to sign up for the image of a stressed-out soccer mom who constantly complains that “I am about to lose it”. But … isn’t this is what we are expected to do in these settings? This is what’s “normal”, right? Hell, No! I am an accomplished career woman who makes a decent living AND a caring mom who DOES have enough time to maintain a close bond with my kids and be there for them when needed. And I am happy to go to work in the morning, and I am happy to come home at night.
While the challenges may be different, there is a common thread: these issues are all too often what keep people from achieving their highest goals.
And so, significant chunks of people’s time, energy, and effort are spent trying to work their way through it all, towards those goals—towards success. For many, it can get frustrating and downright disheartening, especially upon seeing others move through life seemingly with little effort—if everyone has their own challenges to battle, why do some people wind up being more successful than others?
Well, what if there was a formula to this journey? A step-by-step guide… a science to it?
Acmeology… Or, the Science of Success
In the simplest terms, Acmeology is just that—the science of success.
First introduced into mainstream academia in 1928 by Russian psychologist N.A. Rybnikov, Acmeology is a relatively new area of study. Still, it has gained scholarly interest and traction over the years to become one of today’s most promising modern sciences.
Acmeology brings together aspects of psychology, sociology, medicine, and other natural and humanitarian branches of study in one multidisciplinary science, all with the goal of delving into the workings of success.
In essence, Acmeology studies patterns and mechanisms of success, particularly in mature, self-actualized individuals. Through the identification and codification of these principles, a variety of systematic self-improvement and personal development approaches can then be crafted.
These approaches could help people—just like those mentioned earlier—deal with diverse real-life challenges:
The stressed-out employee or aspiring entrepreneur could be equipped with self-organization strategies towards increased productivity.
Those dealing with trauma, depression, or stress could learn proper emotional and mental tools for their journey.
The working mother could have the best of both worlds… and, without the mom-guilt so common among women who make these choices.
Again, while the challenges may be different, tapping into Acmeology could be a game-changer across the board.
How Can Acmeology Help YOU?
To illustrate the basic principle behind an Acmeological approach, imagine that your goal in life—your ultimate dream—is to paint a masterpiece.
Now, there are a couple of different routes you could take to get to that goal. You could rely on pure luck to produce a piece of art out of the blue. You could also spend years and years on trial and error (you’re bound to create something of value at some point, right?) Or, you could instead seek out and adopt a tried-and-tested methodical approach—learn all about proper techniques and get yourself the tools you need -- as in, the appropriate brushes that professional painters use to make their life easier.
This is essentially what Acmeology can give you: a science-backed system to follow, and the right tools for each task.
But what about inspiration? If you want a REAL masterpiece, you will need something beyond the regular tools and the head knowledge of the approaches, right? You will be surprised to know that Acmeology can teach you how to find this inspiration also -- and it is, arguably, the only science that can do that at this point.
It all starts with your inner potential, which this modern science fundamentally believes all people to innately possess.
So, yes, everyone encounters various challenges in life—this is pretty much inevitable.
But, no matter what these difficult circumstances are that you are faced with, they shouldn’t keep you from achieving your goals and being successful. Acmeology—this valuable, innovative science—could be just the thing you need in your life, whoever you may be, and whatever you may be facing.
