Dynamics of success run down

IT IS sad to see your regular commentaries from Owen Hughes setting out to diminish the work of Life Dynamics and others in the field of personal development.

It demands courage and commitment for busy and successful people to take a long, hard look at their lives. A truly deep look can be uncomfortable; meaningful change for the better always is, as we risk letting go of what is not working in our lives but what has always felt comfortable nonetheless.

In Hong Kong, over 7,000 people via Life Dynamics alone have chosen to examine beliefs about themselves and their world that could be getting in the way of them being more effective, in their work and in their relationships.

I have worked as an unpaid volunteer on Life Dynamics seminars with over 1,500 people, and I feel privileged to be able to contribute to this exciting and rewarding arena; no dogma, no rules to live by. This is separate from my work as an adviser to ARC International, the company that runs Life Dynamic seminars here.

People benefit enormously in that environment, both personally and professionally. One thing it rarely, if ever, produces is bad news: 7,000 satisfied people does not make a great headline.
