hello dear reader,

this is CAACTUS_effect, an acronym characterizing a three-step consecutive phase model regarding aspects of personal growth.

CA • AC • TUS

Create Awareness | Accept Challenge | Transform Using Stress

The practice to this project is implemented in a one-year FREE blog project starting on December 31st 2018 and finishing on December 30th 2019. In order to put the CAACTUS into effect one blog article will be published every single of 2019´s calendar weeks [CW#]. On Mondays you will be given the opportunity to read CAACTUS´ key focus - the personal development of INDIVIDUALITY and IDENTIFICATION.

What does PERSONAL GROWTH refer to? When speaking of personal growth or personal development we are using methods to find out about personal resources, such as adaptive responsiveness, coping strategies and self-efficacy. While walking through the process of growth we are focussing on three main elements: self-awareness, self-acceptance and self-transformation. At the same time CAACTUS_effect´s consecutive phases perform mutually while using its acronym styled structure. Thus the project is organized in three main categories:

  1. Create Awareness [CA, CW# 3-18]

  2. Accept Challenge [AC, CW# 19-34]

  3. Transform Using Stress [TUS, CW# 35-50]

While both awareness and acceptance occur previous to transformation, in the beginning we will discuss issues on self structures and get into the approval of our own personality. On this occasion self-reflection and introspection will play a significant role.

The main emphasis of CAACTUS_effect is to initiate transformation which is seen as the actual indication of development and therefore personal growth. On this matter stress is understood as the most relevant component since it implies progress. Furthermore it is considered a necessity as the absence of stress involves zero impulse. Rather than denying stress we should start make it the right company by studying stress in the process of development as its own language. So get in touch with your stress by following the blog and be part of the CAACTUS community!

I am very excited and looking forward to sharing knowledge and experience with YOU.

LOVE,

Ana
