13 points to identify your values

13 points to identify your values

People in India are subordinated to outer influences. They hold themselves back and do not allow themselves to shine and become wealthy, according to Dr John Demartini, the globally renowned author on human behaviour and personality development.

“As long as India, as a country, subordinates to people around it, instead of honouring its own unique contribution, will not value itself to get the greatest contribution. Many people do not give themselves permission to be wealthy,” Dr Demartini told Deccan Herald after speaking at the ‘Social Entrepreneurship Summit’ here on Thursday.

Dr Demartini was born on Thanksgiving Day in 1954 in the US with some initial challenges. His limbs were deformed. He could never learn to read, write, communicate, or go far in life, his first-grade teacher had told him. At the age of 14, he dropped out of school but re-enrolled later after being inspired by an elderly man, Paul Bragg. He learnt to read functionally only at the age of 18.

As of today, he has read almost 30,000 books on 280 different academic disciplines.
The celebrated author has developed a 13-point formula, The Demartini Value Determination Process — a multi-step process which helps a person to identify his values with crystal clarity. The formula follows a pattern common in 13 steps.

In his opinion, a person’s passion and inspired mission are two different things. “Passion originally means to suffer. Your highest value will be your inspired mission and the lowest your passion. I don’t use the word ‘passion’,” he pointed out.

The event was organised by Future Competency Seminars and Events (FCSE) in association with Janalakshmi Social Services and Rotary Club of Bangalore, District 3190.
