When the conditions are right, it breaks free and begins its life journey. The Acorn Principle tells you to look inside and discover what is the seed of your being - explore your values, your natural abilities, thinking and learning styles, and detect your intellectual blind spots. Once you discover your “acorn profile,” it becomes a useful tool for self-definition and developing appropriate, complementary relationships. Ultimately, your fastest, easiest and most enjoyable growth comes from your natural talents and skills.
