Creative Ideas for Positive Youth Development

The Art of Growing Souls

It's about becoming.

A super important part of being a healthy human is growth.

Studies show that the human brain identifies with its own future self in an activity pattern that matches a stranger, rather than activity patterns of its present self.

This means that we have to teach our brains to do stuff that serves our future self more than our present self. Since goals are all about the future, we gotta figure out how to connect the dots between our daily choices and the future we want.

Learning the Art of Growing Souls will help anyone become more self-aware and emotionally intelligent, regardless of the disparities and inequalities of the circumstances that we may be experiencing.

Soul Grower principles teach us to own our life, own our decisions,
learn the difference between our circumstances and our thoughts about those circumstances.


Once those skills are learned, we see the world differently. We see opportunities we couldn’t see before. And we understand and believe that any change really is possible.

Soul Grower programs will kick-start your brain, and if you choose to believe and practice the skills you will learn, you will begin to unlock a limitless future of amazing possibilities for your life.

But, it's up to you.

The programs will only be an invitation to make these things happen.
So, choose wisely.

Evidence-based principles.



"What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself. " Abraham Maslow

The process of self-assessment can be a fun, positive tool that gives you control over your growth and accomplishments.


Identity & Purpose

Who are you?

What do you love? What do you hate? What are you good at? What do you stand for? What are you willing to fight for?


Wellness Principles

The Body, Mind, Heart, and Soul

Wellness is the goal of a healthy, happy life. To achieve that, you need to understand the principles that lead to health in each of the 4 dimensions of your lives.


Goal Achievement

"We don't rise to the level of our goals, we fall to the level of our systems." James Clear

Getting to the top of any mountain requires careful planning. You've gotta clearly define your peak, projects, and daily practices.


Fear, Doubt, Shame & Blame

Dumbrellas block you from seeing the opportunities that surround you everyday.

Fear-based decisions are crippling. Doubts playing in your head will erode your sense of self-worth. Shame leads to all forms of self-harm. Blame will keep you in victim mode and keep you from playing the hero in your story.


Grit & Resilience

Growth takes time - and quitting won't speed things up! There are 4 keys to resilience:

Do the work

Own your choices - take responsibility

Ask for help - be teachable

Do. Not. Quit.


Core Values

"When values are clear, decisions are easy." Roy Disney


Each day you live is filled with hundreds of decisions. Defining your personal standards gives those decisions boundaries and focus.


Growth Mindset

Who are you?

What do you love? What do you hate? What are you good at? What do you stand for? What are you willing to fight for?


Emotional Intelligence

"Emotional intelligence can be the game changer to high performance and personal leadership."

Steve Gutzler

Connecting the dots between thoughts, emotions, and actions is a life changing skill.


Become the Hero

You are living out a story.

What role are you playing right now? Villain? Victim? Sidekick? Guide? or the Hero? You get to decide. YOU are the author, director, casting director, and star.


Cognitive Behavioral Skills

Things become Thoughts.

Thoughts become Feelings.

Feelings become Actions.

Actions become Results.


Emotional Reactions

Easy Buttons = Instant Gratification

Feeling better in the moment will rarely serve you well. Whether it's social media or substance use, there will always be a price to pay if you attempt to manipulate your emotions with easy buttons.
