The mark of wise people is that they are free from anxiety .Help others to discover their own abilities and virtues ; help them find the goodness within their own souls.Help them suppress that which is bad within them- Confucius ,Chinese Philosopher, from “The Analects”. Three mechanisms of escape from freedom:1.Authoritarianism 2. Destructiveness- Reactive Hostility 3. Automaton Conformity .This freedom man can attain by the realization of his self , by being himself. -Erich Fromm, in his famous book ”Escape from Freedom” There is born in us the dual state of fact and ideal , with its endless conflict between “what is “ and “What should be”. Integrated life and action is education. Integration does not come about through conformity to a pattern , either one’s own or that of another. - Renowned World Teacher Jiddu Krishna Murthy ,in his famous book “Commentaries on Living”, Third Series We are evolving from five sensory humans into multisensory humans.We are also evolving from a species that pursues external power into a species that pursues authentic power .The competition for external power lies at the heart of all violence-Mr.Gary Zukov in his famous book “ The Seat of the Soul”.

ANALOGY BETWEEN LIFE SKILLS AND CAR MAINTENANCE SKILLS D- Decision-Making Skill-Clean Spark Plug E- Emotions-Coping Skill-Lighting System E-Effective Communication Skill-Fuel(like petrol, diesel and gas) P – Problem Solving Skill -Transmission oil, Gear oil and Break oil A- Apt Interpersonal Relationship Skill -Engine –Tuning C- Critical Thinking Skill - Battery Electrolyte C-Creative Thinking Skill-Engine Oil E- Empathy Skill - Coolant S- Self-awareness building Skill –Filters(air filter,oil filter , fuel filter) S-Stress Coping Skill - Air in the tyres



Questionnaire of twelve questions to assess the current level of attitude Always(5 points)-Often(4Points)-Sometimes(3 Points)-Rarely(2 Points) – Never (Zero Point) Ranges of Evaluation: More than 50 – Excellent attitude Between 40 – 50 - Average attitude Less than 30 – Poor attitude



Left brain and Right brain activities (Whole brain integration ) are needed to be in our healthy daily life style. Listening is both verbal listening(left brain ) and nonverbal listening (right brain).Left brain dominant person can not listen nonverbally, as the switch to the right brain becomes difficult. At Alpha (Brain waves around ten cycles per 11 second) right brain gets activated.

Seventy four questions to develop all ten life skills-D.E.E.P.-A.C.C.E.S.S Implementation Quotient Ranges of Evaluation: Excellent Implementation – More than 320 points Average Implementation – Between 200 to 320 points Poor Implementation- Less than 200 points


ACTION PLAN FOR THE IMPLEMENTATION OF D.E.E.P-A.C.C.E.S.S IMPLEMENTATION QUOTIENT - Awareness programmes on these ten life skills are to be conducted. -Training programmes to develop Training of Trainers (TOT) - Various training techniques and training methodologies to be adopted. - Trainings are to be integrated to local needs and local cultures. 13
