EquiliTRI is a journey to discover yourself, who you are and who you can be. It is a Personal Development Method developed in over 15 years of work and testing in Asia and Europe.
It has created success stories and successful project, and it is promoted by an international team across Europe and Asia. If we were to give a definition for EquiliTRI, we would say that EquiliTRI is a self-manageable Personal Development method based on the principles of balance, simplicity and flexibility.
Why EQUILITRI? Most people believe that in order to achieve success, we must follow success stories. Although that idea has merit, and on some levels can be a part of your achievements, the problem with it is that not everbody is the same. Just because one guy went from rags to riches after a life full of hard work and sorrow does not mean that his way for becoming successful will work for you. The idea behind those success stories is that there were personality traits that those people had which you might not, socio-economic context which might be different, opportunities and challenges which are always different.
One other major factor that is surely different is something that we call emotional drive. It consists of desires, motivations, personal experiences and other motivational factors. Also, Success and Happiness are two different things. While success may appear to be the same what might make one happy, will be different from what will make you happy.
The bottom line is that if any given success system is not working for you personally, you need to find your own. EquiliTri allows you to do just that. EquiliTRI is not a success recipe, it offers you a set of tools to build your own success & happiness recipe.
Most Personal Development methods leave you dependent to tools, books, courses, couches, guides that you sometimes need to purchase as well. EquiliTri is pretty much self-manageable.
