Wisdom is way more powerful than intellect.
Intellect gets you to work hard to give you what you want, though at a cost.
Wisdom will give you with ease and grace not only what you want but also what you need and don’t know as yet you need.
Intellect comes with arrogance. Wisdom comes with gentleness of humility.
Intellect makes us a High Performer, supporting us to create more impact in more time. Therefore, our impact cannot grow beyond a point with Intellect because time is finite.
Wisdom makes us a Super Performer, supporting us to create more impact in less time. Therefore, our impact can infinitely grow with Wisdom.
Intellect is in the mind. Wisdom is in the Being. It is present in each one of us as our undeniable greatness.
5 thick dark black curtains of Unconsciousness separate us from our Inner Wisdom, our Inner Light of undeniable greatness.
It’s our responsibility to strengthen ourselves to pull these curtains down one at a time to live in the expression of our undeniable genius and make a massive difference in the world by living our Purpose through the work we do, leading ourselves and our business from good to great, realizing our dreams and having it all.
Since one part of our work is about pulling down these 5 thick dark black curtains of Unconsciousness to shine the light of our Inner Wisdom, our undeniable greatness (Leadership Depth), I have designed a new game for us to play - RYD Wisdom Project.
Unlike Business Excellence, Leadership Depth (raising of human consciousness) cannot be learnt in a class-room. It’s only through mastering a Sport, mastering a Creative Art, through RYD Growth Habits across the 4 bodies or through specially designed real games (not virtual) can we truly raise our human consciousness.
RYD IPL Championship is one such game, RYD Buddy Call is another such game, 100% RYD session attendance is also another game designed to strengthen Leadership Depth (raise human consciousness).
RYD Wisdom Project is another such newly created game.
Participation is voluntary.
I am on my next vacation / sacred pause from 16-March till 29-March which is when RYD 2023 Wisdom Projects for the first half of the year would be concluded.
Awakening your Inner Wisdom through Investigation, Exploration, Experimentation, Validation and Integration.
That is what an RYD Wisdom Project is.
There are two themes for March 2023 RYD Wisdom Projects:
A. Joyous Parenting: Raising ourselves as Extraordinary Human Beings
Hypothesis to investigate: Parenting is not about raising our kids to become good human beings. It’s about raising ourselves to become the greatest versions of ourselves because humans primarily learn through mirror neurons. Parenting is not about what we do with our kids, it’s about what we do with ourselves that our kids learn and grow to be Happy, Healthy, Responsible; joyfully unleashing their undeniable genius.
Intention of the Session: All participants get an access for Joyous Parenting.

6. Family Wisdom: Nurturing the Leader within your Child by Robin Sharma
B. Integrity: The Secret Super Power of Creation
Hypothesis to investigate: Integrity is about doing what I said I would do, by the time I said I would do, doing it the way I meant to do it. Great businesses are born out of integrity. Integrity can only be accessed after raising my consciousness to love and accept myself unconditionally as I am, love and accept others unconditionally as each one is, love and accept life as it is (childlike trust and faith in the Universe).
Intention of the Session: All participants get an access to be Integrity in every area of their Life

If you are choosing to play, pick up one of the two themes above that resonate the most with you as exploring that theme would contribute to you the most at this point in time.
You will present the result of your investigation, exploration, experimentation, validation and integration of these themes on:
Saturday 18-March 5:23 to 7:57 am IST
Integrity: The Secret Super Power of Creation
Saturday 25-Mar 5:23 to 7:57 am IST
Joyous Parenting: Raising ourselves as Extraordinary Human Beings
Here are quick guidelines on how to play the game:
1. Pick up one resource from the above list of the theme that heart and soul-connects with you, make a summery of Insights that made a difference to you, implement those insights in your own life and observe the results that get created.
2. Together, as a group, present the insights and learnings from your own implementation of insights from the different resources to the community, and lead a Socratic Discussion to support all participants to elevate their own lives.
3. Ensure you all finish the session 30 minutes before so that everyone (including yourself) fills up the Session Reflection form during the session while everyone is still alive to the learnings and insights.
If you are choosing not to play, then you can simply attend the above sessions to learn from the experience of others.
We are a community and share our human consciousness. Our consciousness is the average consciousness of our community.
So, keep playing to joyously lead yourself and your business from good to great, realize your dreams and have it all with ease and grace; while having lots of fun along the way 💜
