This past week, I posted Five for Flourishing on LinkedIn where I introduced 5 strengths of character that I believe and contend to be core and universal to success.  Then, Thursday evening, I spoke of it on AFTER SCHOOL on Facebook Live.  In particular, I spoke of this marvelous woman who identified herself as being in the oft-addressed picture of my dad’s early schooling. muriel4

See the red circles.

Muriel was and is amazing.  She apparently went to the same school as dad and is the sister of dad’s earliest girlfriend.  Her sharing of the story and the promise to share more with me serves to help humanize my dad in ways that I see as a gift; to explore who Mac Green was… unique and real. And it would not have happened without the practice of the five, for flourishing.

Practice them.  Manifest them.  Realize their rewards.

Peace, passion and prosperity.
