39. The holy grail of good life

Conceiving good life as a holy grail to find, may be a misleading concept too, as we must find it at first within our own personality. Usually we must have at first as primary meaning in our mortal life, the development of more soul consciousness.
According to Brain Tracy, his life changed when he realized that his undesired life hitherto was related somehow with the type of personality he had developed. He began  finding his holly grail of good life by changing his personality, as this is something that one  has immediate  power to do compared to external  social conditions and began studying and  applying principles of personal development.
According to Andrew Carnegie's wisdom as told to Napoleon Hill (see the book with the same title) the pleasant and attractive personality has the next 24 components

1) Positive mental attitude
2) Flexibility
3) Sincerity of purpose
4) Promptness of decision
5) Courtesy
6) Proper tone of voice
7) The habit of smiling
8) Proper expressions of the face
9) Tactfulness
10) Tolerance
11) Frankness of manner and speech
12) A keen sense of humour
13) Faith in divine Unlimited Intelligence.
14) A keen sense of justice
15) Appropriateness of words
16) Emotional Control
17) Alertness of interest in persons, places and things.
18) Effective speech
19) Versatility
20) A genuine fondness for people
21) Humility of the heart (Based on the recognition that  even the greatest of men are, by comparison with the scheme and plan of life generally, but fragments of the whole).
22) Good showmanship.
23) Clean sportsmanship
24) Personal charm (polite term for the libido energy)


According to Charles Faulkner in his mp3 seminar "Create irresistible Influence with NLP" (see 
http://www.nightingale.com/prod_detail~product~Creating_Irresistible_Influence_NLP.aspx)  there are 5 NLP layers relevant to the influence of the personality; In these 5 life purposes are distributed the "6 musketeers" or 6 basic questions where, when, what, how, why, who.
Bottom-up: 
1) Environment (Where, When)
2) Behaviours (What)
3) Capabilities (How)
4) Values and Beliefs (Why)
5) Identity (Who)
