How to develop your fundamental and essential values for a life of happiness, success, and fulfillment
We are taught in the jungle of life to climb a Pyramid of Desires by satisfying first our basic desires before moving to our essential ones. Then, if we are fortunate enough, we might arrive to our fundamental desires of happiness, success, and fulfillment. Hopefully, before we die, we even might satisfy our existential desire of discovering why we are on this Earth and the purpose of our lives.
What if we flip that pyramid and first strive to satisfy our existential desire—the why of our existence? If we simply do that, then everything will change. We will have direction in our lives. Happiness, success, and fulfillment will become byproducts of walking the path toward our guiding star. We will seek work and relationships that are guided by our existential purpose and fulfill only the desires that take us back to the Garden of Eden. The result is a life of clarity, gratitude, ease, and abundance.
Ammar sought fulfillment at a young age by exploring anthropology and world religions spending ten years with Sufi masters and religious scholars, studying, teaching, and subsequently serving as a cleric. Later he focused on entrepreneurship, where he pursued success by starting and seed-investing in over thirty businesses with thousands of employees, four of which are currently led by members of YPO, a global leadership community of chief executives. Ammar's startup spirit extended to volunteering in YPO, where he is a founding member of eleven chapters spanning four continents, positively impacting their communities. He also founded the YPO Change Makers Club where members and spouses share their expertise with the wider community.
Ammar holds an engineering degree from the University of Central Florida, and he is a Harvard Business School alumnus from "The President's Program in Leadership."
After a near-death experience followed by an eleven-year deep dive into the meaning of life, today Ammar is focused on working with Purposehood®️ therapists, life engineers, and business engineers, both volunteers and professionals to spark a movement to unleash the potentiality of every human toward their existential purpose in order to build a better future for all.
Ammar shares The Purposehood®️ Method in workshops, talks, and courses based on his book (Amazon #1 new release in Humanist Philosophy and Transpersonal Psychology): "Purposehood: Transform Your Life, Transform the World”.
