PDS: More Important Than Knowledge?

Imagine having the power that Albert Einstein called more important than knowledge.  With this you can turn anger into determination.  You can change a crisis into an opportunity.  Success and productive resolutions are attainable outcomes.  That’s right, negatives become positive, wrongs shift to rights, and happy endings abound.  With the ability to change your PERSPECTIVE, you have access to resources, skills and choice.  The world is your oyster!  Discover one of our MOVVE!™ Elite Motivation resources that makes this happen, it’s called The PDS Perception.  It represents the Producer, Director & Star views of our authentic character.

Einstein said “Imagination is more important than knowledge,” but isn’t imagination where we get perception?  Think about it.  Our minds can literally expand and extend our resources.  OK, back to the show where PDS uses your imagination to cue perceptions that literally put you into the director’s chair.

For instance, Jeff fumed in his car while trapped in traffic.  His planned arrival at the meeting was hijacked.  He couldn’t get a signal for his iPhone so his temper and blood pressure rose to new heights.  Instead of causing a fender bender or coronary, Jeff used this downtime constructively thanks to PDS.

A movie or TV Producer sees the big picture.  They see every scene as just one of many that makes up a show.  This is a different perspective for the Star.  The Star is in the scene reacting to the people, plan and circumstance.  The Star could easily get swept up in the emotions of a scene like when Jeff escalated to anger when he felt captive in his car.

A Producer doesn’t get carried away because of situations or feelings because the focus is on the show, not just one scene.  So while the Star could go off script, the Producer maintains the emotional intelligence to stay on target.  It’s the Director who can then coach the Star to use the appropriate attitude and behaviors to get back on track.

Life is a series of scenes we play everyday.  We are always in a scene.  Right now you’re in a reading scene.  Later you’ll probably be in some sort of transportation scene, an eating scene, a home scene or some other activity that is actually a scene you’re doing.  Our life is the collection of scenes we’re in.  If you’re like most folks, you just play the Star who does their best in each scene.  But, as Einstein would suggest, if you use your imagination you can boost your IQ with EQ (emotional intelligence).

Enter PDS.  You go to outside the box thinking, or in this case outside the scene awareness when you become the Producer.  Here you see the bigger picture and are not caught up in the emotionality that a Star can get into.  Then, the Director’s perspective cues the skills and resources of how to play the scene to achieve the best results.  Now you, the Star, delivers the appropriate actions to create a happy scene ending that is in keeping with the goals of your show.  Emotional intelligence in action!

PDS Perception is just one of our 50  MOVVE!™ Active Actions that are part of the essential elements of Elite Motivation.  PDS – Producer, Director & Star also translates to the realities of Perspective, Destination & Skills.

When you’re leading a life, you want the best assets and support.  Don’t be just a bit player in your own show.  You CAN achieve that impossible dream with action.  After all, it’s your life, your show.  Make your best MOVVE™ to Elite Motivation!
