The basis of the Zones came from studying the great men of the past; men who have forever influenced the future and caused massive changes to our life style, our thinking, and the way we view the world in which we live.
My studies of these great leaders was not only to expand my knowledge but to find out what were the common factors these great people had and whether these factors could be applied to anyone’s life and the lives of those around them.
Who are the great men I studied?
Aristotle, Plato, and Socrates, the great Greek philosophers; Euripides, the Greek dramatist; Jesus of Nazareth, Leonardo da Vinci, William Shakespeare, Galileo Galilei, Johann Gutenberg, James Watt (inventor of the steam engine), William Paxton (inventor of the printing press), Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Alva Edison, Alexander Graham Bell, Henry Ford, Orville and Wilbur Wright, Winston Churchill, Edwin Herbert Land, and a host of contemporary people who have triumphed over life and become masters in their own fields.
The key question was, were these men born so talented, or did they make themselves into great masters?
Obviously, they had native intelligence, but as best as I can discover, all grew by deliberately attaining their knowledge, talents, and abilities in a methodical, ever-expanding, dedicated manner.
All appear to have been extremely literate in their fields of endeavor, and having mastered an area, would seek to expand into new areas and master them, each area concentrated on and mastered one at a time.
The most consistent common denominator of these great men was their vast vocabulary; many were printers, writers, or orators. They all had enormous word power. That is, they not only knew how to say the words, they knew the full definitions of the words. They all could and did apply their knowledge.
Almost all were great teachers.
All had tremendous visions of what they wanted to achieve and were true to those visions, very seldom veering or being distracted from their visions.
All used their power unconditionally.
All played big games of life and caused great changes for the better.
All had great leadership abilities.
All were great communicators.
All had tremendous empathy toward their particular fields.
All these great men had high action levels and were tremendously effective at delivering what they promised.
All had great confidence in themselves and their products, often having to withstand imprisonment, torture, abuse, criticism, even death, for they challenged the fixed ideas and old paradigms of their times.
All accomplished what they set out to accomplish.
All have changed the long-term future of Earth and made it a much healthier, more civilized place.
It has taken thousands of years for the knowledge these great men unleashed to be absorbed.
It is those attributes that make up the Personal ZONES Profiles that are in this book.
All these men attained the state of mastery in their fields of endeavor.
They did this by being masters of the attributes of knowledge, ethics, power, size of games, their identities, their abilities to communicate, empathize, act, be effective, be confident, and accomplish their goals.
These are the basic abilities that all of us must master in order to be fully ourselves and unleash our power to accomplish what we want out of our successfully living our lives.
I have designed the Personal ZONES Profiles in such a manner as to measure gradiently where you are and what you should do to achieve mastery.
You do not have to reinvent the wheel to unleash your greatness. These great men have blasted a pathway to mastery. All you have to do is follow it, be persistent, be honest, and you will arrive at mastery yourself; perhaps you will be a future great one. You could be a catalyst for change toward an even greater planet.
The way is contained in this book, but realize that you will be fighting your way upward, attempting to unlock the padlocks that you have put in place to seal up the access ways and compartments that contain your hidden powers and abilities.

Before you even begin to read this book, you should study both the LIFE (Beingness) Analysis Graph and the SKILLS (Doingness) Analysis Graph profiles and become familiar with the different Zones, the columns, and the attributes in each column.
Once you have fully conceptualized the consequences of the Green Zone, you can expect amazing positive changes to take place in your life.
Whatever you do, DON’T SKIP OVER THE DEFINITIONS OF THE WORDS.
These words are the most powerful in the English language. Further, they are root words that affect the meaning and comprehension of many tens of thousands of other words.
There is a new type of leader developing on this planet and a new era is emerging.
As the old ways of living life, and the old paradigms become more and more unworkable, this new type of leader will become the future power, for this new type of leader will be in the right place at the right time.
Many tens of thousands of people are knowingly or unknowingly moving in this new direction. We have begun at this time the ending of a very long upward cycle that has taken us from the Dark Ages to the Information Age.
Huge shifts are taking place throughout the planet’s work and government forces. Millions of white collar and skilled workers are finding themselves being phased-out of their jobs.
This new era that is dawning is the era of Knowledgism.
The key ingredient that will drive Knowledgism forward is vast amounts of energy and the key ingredient of energy is life-force particles.
Sebastien R.N. Chamfort, an Eighteenth Century philosopher, said “A man of intellect without energy added to it is a failure.” This is true also of one’s Dreams and Aspirations.
Without energy to drive your Dreams and Aspirations forward, you can’t be a part of the Knowledgism era.
