Virtues and Values ​​to inculcate, teach and put into practice in children for this new era  (Inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Simon Bolivar, Benjamin Franklin and Walt Disney)

1.- Teach the Value and Virtue of Loving God, Parents and their Grandparents

“God is always with us, we are never alone”

San José María Escriva

2.- Highlight the Virtue of Sharing, of learning to Share

The best penance is charity, modern Americans have understood this and have transferred it to the personnel administration, when they need to reward an employee, they reward him with a quantity of money so that he can spend it as he has, as a reward for his good action. This does not mean that we can not give other things as charity or alms, but let’s try to do it in cash so that the person requesting the charity or the alms will spend it on their needs, according to their own criteria.

The beautiful poem Caridad written by Rubén Darío, which directly touches on this theme, begins by saying: “Give to the poor, give to the poor peace, comfort, relief, bread: May he recover hope and joy with the help they give him.If you give consolation to the poor, sensitive hearts, you will have wings in heaven and on earth blessings. ”

Sharing is teaching and practicing Charity and teaching the Works of Christian Mercy:

Bodily mercy works:

1) Visiting the sick

2) Feed the hungry

3) Give drink to the thirsty

4) Give the pilgrim an inn

5) Dress the naked

6) Visit the prisoners

7) Bury the deceased

Spiritual works of mercy:

1) Teach the one who does not know

2) Give good advice to those who need it

3) Correct the one who is wrong

4) Forgive the one who offends us

5) Comforting the sad

6) Patiently suffer the faults of others

7) Pray to God for the living and for the deceased.

3.- Highlight the Value of Learning to take care of the brothers; here it is key because it includes several values ​​and virtues at the same time.

Teach them how to play together, teach them to play together and learn to be together since they were little, to take care of each other, to teach them the value of being together, of being in company, of sharing, of friendship, of eating together, of laughing and to cry too but in a group, together, the big brothers when they take care of the little ones, usually the little ones learn to speak faster and to walk, and since they are older they learn to deal with more agility more quickly, they learn to handle each other emotionally , one with another will learn social and emotional skills more quickly, how to handle situations of anger, anger, joy, sadness, whims, frustration and displeasure, learn to handle fear and fear when they are together. They learn to be in company and to play, to study in company and in groups.

Older brothers learn to care for their siblings and practice charity and love for each other and their fellow human beings. In addition, they learn intrinsic responsibility, punctuality, time and space management, but logically all of this must be guided, mentored and cared for. the parents or an adult relative.

Younger siblings learn from the big ones, they learn things both good and bad, so be very careful with this. Be careful not to copy the tears. and Correct in time the little bad things that they copy from the big brothers.

The younger brothers learn the virtues of friendship, sharing, order, responsibility and synergy. Without knowing it, they learn that in a group they also win.

4.- Learn to have fun in a family group and friends, together and maintain family cohesion. Healthy fun.

Healthy enjoyment is achieved for the body, mind and spirit. Family cohesion is achieved. Family synergy is achieved.

Here I take my hat off with Walt Disney, family fun accomplishes all in one. Principle of Oneness completely.

5.- Teach and practice the Virtue of Responsibility in children.

Responsible with themselves: Good habits: Cleanliness, Punctuality (arriving on time, getting up on time, eating on time, falling asleep early and early), Order, Discipline (doing homework), Honesty, Integrity, Learning to greet people .

Responsible with their family and friends.

Responsible with their School.

Responsible with its environment, neighborhood, city, state, country and entire world.

With all this, time is taught to manage time, spaces and manage home and school tasks.

6.- Teach the value of Love for Nature

Teach children to draw the Sun and the Moon, My planet, the other planets and Astros:

In this process they are intrinsically taught the value of the stars, their benefits, they are taught to be creative, to draw and graph and the beauty of each star.

Love and care for the Earth, Planet Earth and the Atmosphere:

Love, care and conservation by the Air, its utility and need to preserve its essence and cleanliness.

Love and care for Water, Rivers, Lakes, Beaches, Seas and Oceans.

Teach them what it consists of, the characteristics, particularities and benefits of Rain, storms and hurricanes, lightning and rainbows.

Love and care for Vegetation, Forests, Mountains

Love and care for Animals and their environments.

Teach them the seasons of the year and all that entails the types of climate and climate changes.

7.- Teach the Love of the Fatherland

The Love for the Original Homeland:

As the Liberator Simón Bolívar said “moral and lights are our first needs”.

“Patience and more patience, perseverance and more perseverance, work and more work, to have a homeland”

Simón Bolívar El Libertador

We must love the original Homeland with Soul, Heart and Body. This means wanting the good of the territory of where one is, loving their people, looking for the best for our own people and not evil, love the roots of one, seek the integral growth of the country and its people, as we say the Economists not only the economic growth but the integral economic growth that today is measured for the growth of the GDP plus the Education (Gary Becker Nobel prize of Economy) – nowadays modern education, but the Management (Public and Private), growth of the Management both public and private, and united in these new times to the growth in technology, innovation and improvements in absolutely everything.

The Love for the Homeland that has given us temporary or permanent shelter:

If this is the case for any reason or cause, we must learn to love the homeland that gave us or is giving us shelter, nothing is perfect, but it is up to us to learn to love where you are, highlight Strengths and Opportunities and minimize Defects, Errors and Gaps; There are always many good things and there are very good people who have to learn to love where one is.

You have to learn to love people where they are, despite their shortcomings because they also have to learn to love us despite our shortcomings and certainly many.

Even if you are alone in a country that is not the original of one, you have to give thanks to God, to all the acquaintances and to everything, because it is an opportunity to grow, give, receive, do good and love.

And you have to work hard for the good of one, of those who gave you opportunities and of the homeland where you are and even more doing good to everyone.

8.- Practice and teach the love of study and its benefits for new times:

“People who Achieve Outstanding Academic Goals are not like that because they were necessarily born with Talents or Attributes superior to other Academics, but because they have worked hard and have managed to develop a Self-Discipline Methodology” Mihaly Csikzentmihalyi

A proposal of modern studies for children and young people nowadays and for the new times:

a) Modern Education of learning four (4) different types of alphabets and different languages

Preferably you have different roots and alphabets, for example:
















What is achieved with this is achieved: Knowledge of different languages, knowledge of other cultures, knowledge of other ways of thinking and feeling, other ways of seeing the world, knowing other perspectives and ways of saying things. Here creativity and innovation are being worked on a lot.

b) Financial algebra. Business algebra, financial mathematics, applied statistics, calculation and statistical inference.

Financial intelligence: assets, liabilities, cash flow, treasury, investments, corporate finance.

With this the capacity of analysis, calculation, logic, deduction, induction and synthesis is developed. Numerical, accounting, calculation and negotiation skills are developed.

c) Internet, Internet business, e-commerce, social networks and entrepreneurship, business, sales, marketing and digital advertising and social networks.

With this new sales skills are achieved in this new era, learn new media and sell to the whole world.

d) Negotiation

This achieves the strategic, managerial, social, business and understanding skills.

f) Social relations, public relations, emotional intelligence, consumer behavior, high performance teams.

With this, modern managerial and entrepreneurial skills in business and new things are achieved.

9.- Teach the Value of Learning to Manage Technology and all its derivatives with responsibility.

In these times of Artificial Intelligence, the Internet of everything and things and the Digitalization of everything, we have to dedicate time to teach our children how to use the Technology usefully and in favor of productive study, learning, knowledge, science. , of entrepreneurship, business, in order to good and for good.

But this teaching should be responsible and in moderation, avoid excessive use of technology such as video games in excess and that transcend family, values, responsibility, good communication.

Video games are excellent and wonderful, but they should be used for recreation and not as an addiction. They should be used sparingly and with all the technology.

Children no longer want to talk to parents but want to play the preferred video game, you have to put order in this. And you as an adult must set an example as well.

10.- Increase the Value and Virtue of Friendship, of Good Friendship.

“True friendship can only exist between equals”


In the background, Friendship means: sharing, understanding, having fun and loving.

Our mind and heart we have to fill with enthusiasm to combat boredom, eliminate boredom and make sense of our lives. Perhaps the best way to make sense of it is to practice the science of God, practiced by Teresa of Calcutta when she distributed charity and sinister charity, and although she touched the lepers with her hands, she cleaned the wounds with her fingers, and the pus with her handkerchief, never physically contaminated, because his mind was located in the higher planes of the great and beautiful. One last question Do you think Teresa of Calcutta suffered from boredom, boredom or existential void? If by chance we have some kind of existential void, we can fill it up by caring for homeless children or as we now call them in Venezuela, street children, so as not to have premature beggars and caring for homeless elderly people. It was the example Teresa of Calcutta left us.

For that we have Friends to fight boredom, eliminate boredom and give meaning to our lives.

11.- Highlight and teach the Virtue of Temperance

Temperance refers to having moderation in actions – in everything, have temperance and do not let yourself be carried away by the anger you feel.

The will is the faculty of the soul that moves us to do things, admit or shun something, wanting it or hating it, there is free will, self-determination.

By controlling the will, we manage temperance.

In our culture, we are constantly conditioned to gratify our impulses immediately: buy, eat, drink, look, click, everything now.

Successful people who achieve high goals transcend those impulses.

Small achievements along the way provide much more satisfaction to continue.

A lesson to learn is that things come from nothing, things evolve from nothing. The smallest seed in the right situation becomes the most beautiful forest and the most promising seed in a bad situation can turn into nothing.

Some tips on seeking and achieving temperance in children:

-A child who grows up by often obtaining too many prizes, will not be persistent, because that person will be paralyzed or stagnant when the prize disappears (Kaizen Principle).

– There is an emphasis on avoiding instant gratification in the child, since it generates bad habits; we must achieve effective long-term plans.

– The ability to delay gratification opens a new possibility to seek improvement.

– Those with early capacities for self-discipline and delay in gratification have achieved high academic success.

– It is possible that gratification modes can be altered and saved by parents and teachers; This emerges from the fact that the delay in gratification must be a skill and as every skill must be acquired and improved.

– If the children themselves learn self-regulation strategies to reduce frustration in situations in which self-rewards are imposed, this will help to be tied to the desired goals.

– Behave as you want your child to behave now and in the future. Do not eat, buy or grab everything you want.

– Do not respond immediately to everything your children want. Let them learn to manage frustration and what they want.

– Any philosophy, religion and practical exercises that reinforce these principles will help both parents and children.

12.- Teach the virtue of Frugality in children: do not waste resources, do not waste time in nonsense, knowing how to use time usefully.

Teach and practice: Do not waste anything, neither in resources nor in money.

Here we are achieving the teaching of savings and the efficient and effective use of all resources: time, land, work, capital (money), spaces and today’s information and technology.

13.- Teach children to save money and even more to transform this savings into investment, in the case of children, buy productive and useful things like computers and things of value

Useful at your age; and bigger to teach them to work and produce money, teach them about business, entrepreneurship and financial intelligence according to each age.

Both ourselves and our children should know, learn and practice these thirteen (13) Habits that I propose:



Wealth is defined not only in money, but also in time.

Money does not make happiness, what money does is buy time to do what you like and pay others to do what you do not like to do.


Start studying about Assets, Liabilities, Income, How to generate income, How to learn to transform Savings in Investment

The main causes of financial difficulties are the fear of ignorance. The fears inflicted by oneself and ignorance keep people trapped.



You must learn to build your own business, that you like to work, that you are passionate about, that creates a constant flow of cash.

You can start and invest in other assets.

Your business should revolve around your asset column and not in your income column.


Creativity is generating new ideas, products and services. Innovation is putting everything in the market and the market accepts it and buys it.

There is nothing more harmful than someone who keeps thinking about old ideas.

If you want to have abundance and wealth, you need to have an open mind, a flexible reality.

And have the skills to become new ideas in real and profitable companies.


That this product generates constant cash flow.

And then create more products like this in this way.

You must learn how to market your product and how to sell it and how to sell it every day.



People who are at risk change the world.

Few people become rich without taking risks.

The winners are not afraid of losing.

Failure is part of the success process. People who avoid failure also avoid success.



By learning to invest to create a cash flow one can become a financially free person.

One becomes what one studies.


An asset is something that puts money in your pocket.

A liability is something that takes money out of your pocket.

If you want to be rich, spend your life building goods. And the assets are increasingly productive.


Learn to invest: it is the science of how money generates money.

Nor is it how much to earn, but how much you keep and how much you multiply.

We must learn to transform assets into liabilities; and Learn to transform non-productive assets into productive or more productive assets.



The expectation of financial security that was the responsibility of companies and governments belongs to the industrial era. No more.

Now financial security depends on you, your assets that generate income and not the expenses, your investments and your financial intelligence.

You must learn how to sell your products in the digital, marketing and digital advertising era, in the new communication and distribution channels and in social networks.

You must learn the new business models in the digital age and artificial intelligence.


A person who is prepared will prosper no matter which direction the economy goes or when it changes.

The ability to sell is the basis of personal success.

True learning requires energy, passion, a fervent desire.

Passion is the combination of anger and love. These two things combined if you know how to use them generate many rewards and gains.


Learn how to plan your payments and your tax payments.



Your brain can be your most powerful asset or it can be your most powerful passive.

Financial intelligence is linked to Emotional Intelligence, most people suffer financially because their emotions control their thoughts.

By not controlling emotions, expenses are not controlled, and impulsivity in spending, impulsiveness in bad investments and impulsivity in spending time, space and money are not controlled.

By controlling emotions, although you can never control them completely, but try as much as you can, economic and financial decisions will be controlled.

In the case of children, adolescents and young people, all this can be taught, absolutely all this, of course with logic for each age, and everything according to each age.

In Search of Excellence:

Parents are not everything for children. Parents do not have complete control over their children and in some cases when things go wrong, parents do not help much; But parental mentoring matters a lot, since they seriously impact the goals, strategies and personal philosophy of the children.

Here we are going to see four important keys of guidance for Excellence in our children:

a) Beliefs- Believe

– Extraordinary repetition, parental persistence and constant reinforcement, so that the child reinforces his technical expertise.

– Suzuki Method (Mother Language Method)

– Constant involvement of the father in the activity of the children; constant practice (as an example in the practice of a musical instrument); constant memorization and a lot of patience.

– Remember: talent is not inherent; nobody is born with talent, this one must be educated and trained. With special training and a lot of persistence, anyone can achieve great goals and important successes.

– Instead of thinking about Talents given and given, parents should think deeply about the extraordinary potential of their children.

b) Creativity Support; Do not Kill or break Creativity

– The parents have to find what the children like, they should know how to set goals and put high expectations, without getting anxious to see that the child does not achieve high goals. You have to have a lot of patience.

– An early exposure to resources is something excellent, as well as

set high expectations, goals, demonstrate persistence and resilience when they have to face challenges.

– Parents should not use affection as a reward for success; and use penalties when the child fails or makes mistakes. It should seek to show confidence and faith in the child’s abilities, so that he may seek self-satisfaction.

c) Persistence and Tranquility

– Einstein said: “It’s not that I’m smart, it’s that I spend a long time with the Problem”.

– In the end Persistence is the difference between mediocrity and success.

– The key is intermittent reinforcement.

– A person who grows up by obtaining too many awards frequently, will not be persistent, because that person will be paralyzed or stagnate when the prize disappears (Kaizen Principle).

– There is an emphasis on avoiding instant gratification, since it generates bad habits; we must achieve effective long-term plans.

– The ability to delay gratification opens a new possibility to seek improvement.

– Those with early capacities for self-discipline and delay in gratification have achieved high academic success.

– It is possible that gratification modes can be altered and saved by parents and teachers; This emerges from the fact that the delay in gratification must be a skill and as every skill must be acquired and improved.

– If the children themselves learn self-regulation strategies to reduce frustration in situations in which self-rewards are imposed, this will help to be tied to the desired goals.

– Behave as you want your child to behave now and in the future. Do not eat, buy or grab everything you want.

– Do not respond immediately to everything your children want. Let them learn to manage frustration and what they want.

– Any philosophy, religion and practical exercises that reinforce these principles will help both parents and children.

d) Willingness to accept faults and mistakes (Da Vinci)

– In the world of success and the achievement of goals, weaknesses are opportunities; Faults must be open, flexible and understand that they extend the doors.

– The only real flaw is to give up.

– Some biologists and students of human performance tell us that man develops as a response to problems and failures.

– Parents should not make things easy for their children; on the contrary, they must present, monitor and modulate the challenges.

– Great success stories appear when parents and children learn to fight against all odds; they achieve and gain satisfaction by fighting against the current.

– Have the philosophy of persistence

You have to have persistence; keep busy and work, we must recognize that we can make mistakes and that we do not always have the right answer; and that you can always find better solutions, that we can be more effective and teach our children to move in the right direction.

How did these Characters and great Executors of History (Leonardo Da Vinci, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Simon Bolivar, Benjamin Franklin and Walt Disney) achieve all their outstanding achievements and materialize them forever?

Let’s talk a little about some procedures, methodologies and techniques that they used:

The main characteristic of these five (5) great characters of human history has been that all of them were great dreamers, Dreamers of Higher Ideals, Noble Ideals, Great Ideals, Ideals of Good and Ideals that will last forever in Time. And they were not only dreamers but all or almost all of their ideals materialized them, those dreams and their ideals, they imagined them, they thought about them, they landed them, they executed them, they realized and materialized them here on earth, and they materialized them forever.

The technical architecture very similar among all these Ultra Dreamers and Executors to achieve Extraordinary and High Impact Achievements – Achievements forever, is this:

1.- Cognition and Metacognition

2.- Memory- Use of Memory, Knowing how to use Memory, Information and Associations

3.- Ultra Dedication, as an Obsession to achieve your dreams, your Noble Ideas and Tenacity to achieve High Impact achievements

4.- Technique and Procedure

5.- The Perfection of the final achievement

Let’s begin to explain:

1.- Cognition and Metacognition:

Cognition (from Latin cognoscere, ‘to know’) is the faculty of a human being to process information from perception, acquired knowledge (experience) and subjective characteristics that allow to value information. It consists of processes such as learning, reasoning, attention, memory, problem solving, decision making and feelings. The human being has the ability to know all the aforementioned processes.

We must say that the potentialities of the human being consist in the capacities of the power independent of the act, it is the equivalence of one thing with respect to another in virtue and efficiency. Power is the generative virtue, the faculty of the soul to know, love and remember. Through understanding, things can be conceived, compared, judged, induced and deduced (Excerpt of the Second Book Personal Growth  from my father Dr. Ramon Arellano Sanchez- regarding Metacognition).

Attention, memory and understanding are grouped into a broad concept that encompasses their conscious control and is called metacognition. It has to do with the closure of mental activities and their opening, thus creating a third element different from the existing, through which all mental processes are known and regulated. Then it is necessary to establish similarities and differences between attention, memory and understanding. Attention is one of the fundamental processes for understanding and learning.

If we have not understood something, it is impossible to register it as information. When we select the stimuli and pay attention to them, we ignore all the others. Therefore attending becomes a real action. But we must know what we should attend to, what are the mental operations that we must perform to attend to, as well as avoiding internal as well as external distractions, which can move us away from the act of paying attention. In case of distraction we have to realize immediately and correct.

With the repetition of the stimulus we remove the distraction, according to the motivation, we also avoid it. The more growth, the more attention. In learning situations concentration on attention is essential for the purpose of overcoming. For this reason, attentional variables such as illustrations, graphics, must be used to transmit the information and that the participants have an active intervention, ask questions and compare the new contents with those previously acquired.

In terms of memory is the ability to record, retain and retrieve information. When receiving information, it must be stored somewhere, so that it can be used later, if necessary. Through bone encoding the selection of important, relevant facts, eliminating those that are not, we record the activities that will allow us to keep in an orderly manner what we want to retain or store in order to recover or evoke either medium-term or long-term . The information in the memory goes through various levels of processing, such as the beginning of the same that has been called sensory; short storage with limited amounts of information that has been called short-term memory; and long-term memory which is unlimited in quantity and time. The latter can store facts of our personal lives, the experiences we have had and also store general knowledge of all kinds: History, mathematics, geography, languages, religion, etc. World, demon and flesh, for example. Skills in solving problems, beliefs and concepts in general. Finally, understanding is a process of high caliber, since only two percent of the population understands naturally; the specialists have made efforts to raise that percentage.

It implies understanding from a word, a sentence, the interrelation of sentences and the comprehension of a complete text without confusing words, sentences, paragraphs or in connecting them to each other. It would be like going on a path to a certain place to go another way, arriving at a different place, which is neither in need nor useful. Or lost the central idea of the text, leaving the sections or characters without motivation. (Collins and Smith, cited by Lisette Poggioli).

2.- Memory- Use of Memory, Knowing how to use Memory, Information and Associations

All these five (5) Ultra Dreamers and Ultra achieved High Goals, had in common also the ability to retain information, and learn to memorize in the short and medium term, and to use this information memorized in many cases, in order they needed and They used a lot of information, and they always needed to remember information from the past as if they had a personal data base, not only did they have this talent but they learned to develop it more and more. My father, Dr. Ramon Arellano Sanchez, learned to develop memory as a child and achieved through several techniques to develop it more and more. Many of these techniques have taught me in various ways.

One of the techniques that I like the most is that of Mnemonics and Associations:

This technique of Memory, such as Associations or Mnemonics, has recently influenced the Development of the Mind, not only with respect to numbers, but in relation to the areas of language, words, music, games such as chess and the symbology The trick is to assign new information to some association system or image that is already in the head. “It is coding in the Long Term Memory Associations that already existed in it, to release a reminder in the Short Term Memory.”

With an adequate mnemonic system and a structure of remembrance, it seems that there are no limits in the improvement of memory with practice.

In order to remember surprising amounts of new information, it simply requires a correct strategy and a correct amount of intensive practice, of possible theoretical tools for the functioning of the human being.

These techniques can affect areas such as: geometry, chess, mental puzzles, music (piano, violin, cello), basketball, painting, art, among many others.

Through memories and the good use of memory and memorized information are good ways to return to the past, through them we can relive moments that have been important to us and have affected our lives, because of the positive or negative charge left in our mind. When we bring to mind past events we can find solutions for situations of the present, through comparison.

Added to this dreamers and ultra get high-impact goals, managed to keep a lot of information in a certain order and compiled in some way or another in such a way to use it when needed.

Mozart kept all his works compiled, but also had an incredible memory that I have learned to use, in many writings on Mozart is detailed many times when I have brought from his memory, to his mind chords, notes and even complete symphonies, which I have brought to the present of your mind to compose something new or finish composing something new, or just as a game, as if you were playing.

3.- Ultra Dedication, as an Obsession to achieve materialize your dreams, your Noble Ideas and Tenacity to obtain High Impact achievements:

In general, people who achieve outstanding goals have an original leadership, a high appetite for achievement and an incredible desire for success.

Why in the genius does that obsessive need exist? Intense Ambition involves a complex dynamic, putting in the minds of people in different ages and circumstances sometimes for extreme adversity, sometimes for revenge, sometimes for a way to prove oneself, to be loved or for fear of the father, brother or a relative. For example, in the case of Michael Jordan, I have done losing and the constant work on his weaknesses made him want to be the Best.

A common characteristic of successful adults is that at some point in their lives, they realize that the Process of Improvement is within their own Control. The Successful realizes that he controls his Skills.

Mozart once said, “People have a serious mistake in thinking that my Art has been very easy for me.” Nobody has given so much time and thought to a composition like me. ”

At his young age, Mozart’s work was not truly amazing, just imitations of other Composers. His first 7 piano concertos, written between his 11 and 16 years, contain nothing original. It was not until 10 years later that Mozart incorporated different styles and motifs of his own, and developed his own style. The Critics considered the Symphony No. 29, written a decade after the First, as their first work of real stature.

The piano concert n ° 9 “Jeunehomme”, is widely considered as his first great concert for piano; This was written at the age of 21, and it was his composition number 271. “Idomeneo”, his first opera, was written 3 years later.

The most remarkable thing about his adolescence is not the quality of his work, but his consistency, persistence and the arduous, obsessive work of making many compositions. Looking at the chronological work of Mozart, there is a clear path of increasing originality and importance, culminating in his final 3 symphonies, written at the age of 32, which are considered his greatest works.

We must know our own limits and learn to push them ourselves. Finding our true natural limit in an area takes many years and many thousands of hours of intense work. Avoid comfort zones and expertise because they break creativity and divert motivation.

Reality tells us that people who achieve high goals develop different skills at different ages; In fact, researchers have discovered that child prodigies and adults who achieve high impact goals are not often the same person. A long list suggests that many adults who achieved great things, did not show deep skills when children (for example, Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Bach, Newton, Da Vinci, Einstein).

4.- Technique and Procedure

The Procedure: Deliberate Practice

Deliberate practice is a very exclusive form of activity, which differs from mere experience and sharpening and sharpening skills without thinking.

Deliberate Practice is not very pleasant. It is not repetition or execution of the skills already obtained, but thoughtful, strategic repetition, to reach beyond the current level, which is necessarily associated with frequent failures.

People who wish to aspire something, must concentrate on improving specific aspects, through the Practice of Activities Designed for Change and refine mechanisms to solve problems and successive Refinement of Feedback. It is a practice that perseveres.

Deliberate Practice requires a mental concentration of never being satisfied with current abilities, requires constant sacrifice, a pathological work without rest and a passion to reach goals incessantly and perseveringly, just beyond our possibilities and capabilities, in such a way that disappointment and the failure is desired and a constant resolution to improve and try again, and again, and again, and again.

This requires a huge alteration of life and time used, and a daily commitment to be better, it is as if you were stuck to the process of always being better. It requires concentration and focus on improving performance.

When an individual deliberately pushes himself beyond his comfort zone and is induced to sustain himself in strenuous physical activities, it induces an abnormal state of the cells in the physiological system. The brain, too, physically adapts to intellectual stress, as its own demand.

Becoming a big person requires the right combination of mental resources, strategy, persistence and time; and those are tools that are part of the normal functioning of the human being. The physiology of this process requires extraordinary amounts of dedication, time, not only hours and hours of dedication, but thousands of hours and hours over the course of our years. The best gift we have today is this new dynamic.

We must know our own limits, and we must push them much further. Finding our true limit in an area will take years and thousands of hours to pursue them vehemently.

The potential exists when the person develops high desires to reach goals, and as they believe that talent is a function of acquiring skills instead of just having innate abilities, reaching goals depends entirely on a long-term attitude, resources and a good process.

The one who is successful in sports has a set of contributions in various aspects and variables: climate, media, demography, training; spirituality, education, economy and folklore.

In short, athletic success is systemic and not generic. Attitudes of training and postponing gratification are two vital components in people who achieve outstanding goals in sports. They have also been found in people who achieve high impact objectives, particular patterns of cultural strengths, a high orientation to achievement, inclination to seek new challenges, to be competitive and seek to beat others, and a high elaboration of the need as virtue.

Over time, they build a strong culture of success, which brings more and more success, putting brands (benchmarking) and Goals-Objectives ever higher to reach, generating higher and higher levels of expectations.

The simplest way to inspire a better and better performance, is to be surrounded by the fiercest possible competitors and an extreme culture of excellence. The best way to achieve that their directed, cared or tutored can achieve their goals, is to push them to extreme limits, far beyond what their competitors do.

New Equation of Success

Nowadays Success is a Function of many Variables.

Success = Genes A + Genes B (Variant) + Training (X) + Y (Attitude) + Z (Desire to Win) + C (Coaching) + D (Desire) + Cult (Culture) + A (Feeding) + L ( Language) + Custom + S (Spirituality) + E (Climate) + H (Environment) + Disease Rate (Health) + Hab (Habits) + Time + Tech (Application of Technology) + Knowledge (External and Internal) + Belief in itself + Emotional Intelligence + Motive (Intrinsic and Extrinsic Motivations)

Science has unequivocally demonstrated that the person’s mind has the power to impress impressively and affect in the long term the dynamics of performance and achievement. Many psychologists stress that while biology puts the ultimate limits on performance, it is the mind that definitely determines how close individuals reach and surpass these absolute limits. It is vital, according to this understanding, to perform in a dynamic context, with a good psychological and motivational development to achieve high goals.

In recent centuries there has been a progressive and improved athletic performance. This is due to the advances made in technology, aerodynamics, intensity of training, new methods of training, competitiveness and desire.

New people who have achieved extraordinary goals are not superhuman beings, with gifted or super-rare genes. They are participants of a culture of extremes, they are people eager to achieve more, to risk more, to feel more in order to make things better. In the meantime, most of us do not want anything with that culture of extremes, and we are left at a mediocre, almost mediocre point.

In a world obsessed with discovering internal skills, the evidence offers a completely different approach: far from the fixed notion that the human being has assets, skills, talents and fixed contributions, there is the new notion of development of these assets, competencies and human talents

The new science helps us to understand how a normal and ordinary human being can grow and do good, great and extraordinary things. This exposes the fallacy of the old idea that only those endowed with unique gifts can be geniuses and achieve high goals.

To think that talent is only innate makes the world more manageable, more comfortable, frees people from expectations, frees from comparisons. If someone is innately talented in an area or subject, so that I will strive to improve in that area, then I am jealous of their genetic luck while avoiding feeling frustrated if I try hard. This idea leads to apathy, mental comfort, laziness, freeing people from effort and depriving them of rewards.

A new Paradigm Development requires not only a new intellectual adjustment, but also a moral, psychological and spiritual adjustment. This begins by expanding how we consider our true assets, responsibilities and limits that are not only biological, but also economic, cultural, nutritional, family and ecological training.

The consideration of what we inherit as opposed to what we decide, requires a radical revision. Although genes do not change by themselves from generation to generation, the instructions given to genes can change. This means that I can impact on the genetics that was bequeathed to me.

Even in free nations, people are determined by habits, media, messages, patterns, agendas, expectations and social and natural infrastructures, enveloping us in things that are ours. Many of these elements have passed from generation to generation, with little or no change and difficult alteration.

None of the above suggests that we have or should have absolute control over our lives and abilities. Our task now is to replace the simplistic notion of the talents given and the nature that only talents are gifted, by broad and vast new ways of influence, many of them beyond our control, but with the hope of being able to influence and increase our understanding.

The simplest lesson learned from the ultra goal achievers is not how things have been easy for them, but how hard and resilient they have been. It’s a matter of wanting things, wanting to do so many things and never giving up, so much so that you need to be ready to sacrifice time, money, sleep and friends and even sometimes reputation.

You have to adopt a lifestyle of such ambition, not for weeks or months but for years. He has to want so much to be willing to fail and make mistakes, so that these failures and mistakes give him new ways of doing things and learn from them.

People who achieve extraordinary goals require an unusual level of personal motivation and a massive amount of faith.

The sources of motivation are often mysterious. A form of human emotions and psychology, is that deep motivation that comes from many and possible parts. A person may be joyfully inspired, spiritually devout or deeply resentful, motivation may be selfish or revengeful, or prove to someone something good or bad, and all this may be conscious or unconscious Inspiration can come in various forms, a family rivalry, desire to impress a relative, father, brother, children, wife, an insatiable hunger or desire to be loved, or a hatred to fail.

All the great thinkers or inventors are dissatisfied. They always want, they wish they had more education; have worked harder or persevered. And all these people have a high level of self-criticism.

Nietzsche: “All the great thinkers and artists are great workers, indefatigable in invention and also in transformation, order, eliminators and creators of problems.”

Those with high ambitions must indefatigably turn flaws into opportunities, as in Judo, where the practitioner returns the opponent’s attack and his energy in favor of the attacked.

Unless there is focused motivation, sometimes there may be feelings of guilt and regret that dangerously distract from the task at hand, this must necessarily focus on improvement.

Biological guilt is the most common type of guilt. This is highly deterministic; the belief that inferior genes are possessed. This is, perhaps, the biggest obstacle to success.

Sometimes the possible goals or objectives are far away, for many years, far from certainty and often difficult to give them vision. The practical distance between the current skills and the desired skills are so enormous, that the goals seem unattainable. Many people surrender to this feeling of discouragement, instead of taking distance as inspiration and impulse.

Greatness is not just going beyond mediocrity, it is transcending it. Greatness begins one step further, and another step, and hundreds of small and large steps until the distance can not be measured. The only way to reach greatness is to go far, strongly, persistently, pushing everything, going from the points of logic and reason. That is why people who achieve high goals, at any age, are dreamers. Their heads are tied in the clouds, in order to imagine the unimaginable. They ignore the small detours and everything that seems to be obstacles.

Hundreds of extraordinary successful recognize that there is no age of impossibility. Being in the game is difficult and for those who follow, it is a process of calm, of increase in improvement over time that has no substitute. And time is crucial to give it excellence.

Self Control:

In our culture, we are constantly conditioned to gratify our impulses immediately: buy, eat, drink, look, click, everything now.

Successful people who achieve high goals transcend those impulses.

Small achievements along the way provide much more satisfaction to continue.

A lesson to learn is that things come from nothing, things evolve from nothing. The smallest seed in the right situation becomes the most beautiful forest and the most promising seed in a bad situation can turn into nothing.

The true path to success remains not in the molecular makeup of the person, but in the development of a more productive attitude and the grandiose identification of external resources. Find a Mentor, a great Teacher who inspires, advises, criticizes and has extreme faith in you, who tells you the different person – and different abilities – that you should be or have in Life.

The Power of Competitiveness:

Talents always have to develop in a context; they can never develop alone, no man is an island. Humanity is a social enterprise and is always Competitive. One Always learns from one person to another, shares with others and constantly compares and competes with one or other people or counterparts; and all this is done in relation to the affections, goals and resources.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo; Raphael; Titian and Corregio were openly adversaries, who also learned to criticize each other, to bother each other, to get angry, to copy themselves and even admire each other, at that time in which they lived. All of them learned to be rivals and competitive among them.

When a great achievement is celebrated, not only the achievement should be celebrated, but the competitive process should be celebrated, where someone won and someone lost.

The internal motivation of each person is highly malleable and socially tied to reality. Our cultural terrain directly affects how people challenge themselves to achieve goals. The trick is to create a culture that motivates healthy achievements and that accommodates different levels of personalities and motivations.

The idea is to have a deliberate practice, work hard and trying to be satisfactory, to achieve short-term goals, preferably learning to enjoy the process, instead of just focusing on long gaps between current skills and great ideal skills.

The teacher should never assume that a student who initially fails to understand an explanation will not have the ability to progress.

As there are many types of intelligence, schools and universities must learn to adapt to this reality, different people have different ways of learning.

You have to show high expectations, but also show compassion, creativity and have patience.

New sciences study everything we have been talking about, Neuroscience, Epigenetics, Nanotechnology and Singularity: it is the way to prove that we have responsibilities for the integrity of our genes. Our lifestyle can alter our inherited genes.

Enriching experiences can develop brain functions, make it flexible and plastic; it also suggests that developing learning behavior and plasticity can be transmitted to children; but it is necessary to put the children in a constant calisthenics.

The new sciences tell us that the little things in life can have an effect of great magnitudes.

Everything we know about neuroscience, epigenetics, uniqueness fits perfectly with the dynamic system model of human abilities. Genes do not dictate what we are or can be; on the contrary, they act in a dynamic process.

Genetic expressions are modulated by external forces. Genetic inheritance can come in different forms; we inherit stable genes, but the external can alter them, we inherit the language, ideas, attitudes, but all this can change. All the things that surround us shape us, and all this can be remodeled – reformulated – by ourselves.

The creativity and genius within all of us is to build this ability to improve ourselves and our world.

5.- The Perfection of the Final Being- The Final Achievement

Beethoven made changes, included and withdrew changes again and again, tried again and again until he was satisfied, then gave his work the final touch of Amplitude, Length, Height and Depth; until achieving perfection.

Mozart in the need to achieve perfection in his compositions and that the entity created managed to focus attention, have a dominant pattern, and have aesthetic attributes concept-beauty, polished their compositions and achieved that they had one or some of the attributes of Beauty: Purity, Proportion, Simplicity, Clarity, Symmetry, Perfection, Regularity, Uniformity, Measure, Harmony and Order.

We will explain some qualities: the attributes of beauty:

-Pureness (quality of pure, correct, exact)

-Proportion (equality of two reasons, correspondence due to the parties with the whole);

-Simplicity (which has no artifice or composition, lacks ostentation and embellishment);

-Clarity (intelligible, easy to understand, transparent and fluid, obvious, distinction with which we perceive ideas);

-Symmetry (exact correspondence of all the parts with respect to its nucleus);

-Perfection (Greater Ideal or Success final, Highest Achievement);

-Regularity (constant variations with respect to its average);

-Uniformity (only one form, Defined, Same, Similar);

-Measure (standardization of a physical magnitude);

-Harmony (balance of proportions: of the parties as a whole);

-Order (refers to placing each thing in its place, according to a logical structure).

Through this technical architecture used by these five (5) Ultra Dreamers and Great Executors we can inculcate, teach, improve and practice these thirteen (13) virtues and values ​​that I propose  for ourselves and  our children, and achieve that they also succeed when great and reach their own high and extraordinary goals.

“Understand this well: there is something holy, something divine hidden in the most common situations, and it is up to each of you to discover it”

Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer
