Seth Werner took a different path. He sought answers to the how of success- what drives entrepreneurs? What sustains them? And then, an even bigger question: what do you do next?
The Strategic Forum
This stage of life- psychologist Erik Erikson calls it Middle Adulthood- is characterized by the battle between Generosity and Stagnation. The achievement of goals requires setting new goals: the need to create or nurture things that will outlast you. Success at this, Erikson writes, leads to feelings of usefulness and accomplishment; the lack of involvement in something …larger …can create a feeling of inertia and stagnation .
Seth Werner channeled some of his remarkable energy into a group called The Strategic Forum.
The Strategic Forum story is one way of answering the question: after success, what’s next? While success is entirely unique to the individual who defines it, it’s powered by a framework that any of us can apply: Discover, Design, Build and Achieve.
Leap Start, a not-for-profit program aimed at helping young people find more purpose, direction, and greatness in life describes four stages for creating the foundation to your next success: Discover, Design, Build, and Achieve.
Discover- focuses on clarifying who you are, what you want, and why you want it.
Design- focuses on knowing exactly what you need to do reach your end goals
Build: is about overcoming the barriers leaping you from getting started or reaching higher
Achieve: is about delivery- performing when it’s all on the line; reassessing your goals, and dealing with success.
You can find more information about Leap Start on their website, http://leap-start.com/about-us. They offer resources and training in this framework through their online resources and in-school workshops, to our ambassadors’ network and our Leap-Start ‘Feats’.
