“To CHANGE is to Choose a Higher Anointing to Nurture, Grow and Empower.”
Anita Russell is your change cultivator. This lecture is an overview of a toolkit she developed as a means to apply personal accountability and responsibility to cultivate change through your daily growth and personal development. The SOAR On-PAR Toolkit consists of six tools:
- Know Yourself
- Nurture Your Life
- Integrate Your Life
- Connect with Others
- Live Intentionally
- Seize Opportunity
Anita developed the toolkit as a primary step on a journey toward lifelong growth and personal development to make your life a great story. The toolkit is a means of becoming who you aspire to be by closely examining who you are. The central question is this: Are you On-PAR to cultivate change, nurture your vision and take action to live your best life in spite of the storms you encounter? And the storms will come and you must decide how to respond in a way that makes your life a great story. These six tools are designed to help you along the way.
