It’s All About POWER!
“Nobody is going to achieve success just by thinking about it. You’ve got to take action.”
Action is the theme of Jim Bouchard’s groundbreaking entry into the self-improvement genre, “Dynamic Components of Personal Power”. There are plenty of books on the market about success and positive thinking; Bouchard takes self-help to a new level, or more accurately, returns the reader to the true roots of success, personal responsibility and self-motivated action.
“Lot’s of people delay action until they’ve got what they feel have adequate resources. How can you generate the necessary resources without taking action?”
Exactly what are these resources? This is where Bouchard parts from many teachers in the self-help universe. “Money, knowledge and fame are not, in themselves, power”, says Bouchard, “these are reservoirs for your material, emotional and spiritual resources.”
“Power is the product of the work you do over time; simple...not easy.” In Dynamic Components of Personal Power Bouchard teaches that power is developed through motivation and discipline over time. In developing power, you create the resources you need to apply your personal power for personal and professional success. Along the way you have to take care of the sources of human power and energy: your body, mind & spirit.
Where did the author develop his philosophy of success? Jim Bouchard has been a student and teacher of martial arts for over 20 years. He is founder and master instructor of Northern Chi Martial Arts Centers in Maine. He is the creator of the “Beifang Qi Taiji Cane”, and inductee to the U.S. Martial Arts Hall of Fame and has twice been featured in “Inside Kung Fu” magazine.
“Martial arts technique is all about developing and applying power” says Bouchard. “As I continued my practice and study, I found that the same basic components we utilize to develop power in martial arts can be applied to develop and apply personal and professional power in real life as well.”
Through his book and speaking events, Jim Bouchard has effectively translated his dynamic philosophy for a general audience. You don’t need to be a martial artist or a student of Asian philosophy to put the Dynamic Components to work.
“No! Absolutely not! Everyone can learn to utilize the Dynamic Components to realize their own personal vision of success. The key is to start by developing personal power, then apply your power to any number of great systems for achievement suited to your own unique talents and abilities.”
