The World Needs More Kindness

What if we lived in a world where Kindness sat at the heart of how we all thought, communicated and acted with ourselves and each other?

What would businesses be like, whether large corporations or small local businesses, if they put Kindness at the heart of what they created and how they treated customers, staff and society?

What would education, health care, politics and economics look like? More dignified? More just? More inclusive?

And what if society as a whole, from the kitchen table to the playground to every other place we gather, work and live, made decisions based on the simple principle of... "Is this kind?"

For example, what could be kinder to yourself and others than working in an area where your talent & brilliance shines through. Where you contribute the most while loving what you do.

Now, in case you're worried, being kind doesn't mean being soft or shirking tough decisions. Kindness can sometimes involve standing up to what's wrong, or holding institutions that are cruel, discriminatory or unjust to account. About making tough choices for the good of the planet. 

So sometimes kindness is the hardest path. However, here at Five Institute, we believe that is the only path to take - the only one that is logical and feels right and just. What's more, we believe that Kindness is essential if we are to move from a world that is sitting on the edge of chaos, with many of our systems being challenged and stretched like never before, to a new way of being.

We believe that Kindness is the glue that can hold us together as a world, and allow each and every one of us to live a life of safety, fulfillment and peace. That means a world that has a robust and sustainable environment, where Kindness extends to the planet and all our fellow inhabitants.

Why We Choose Kindness

Kindness sits at the heart of everything we do at the Five Institute, and that starts by helping people grow by being kinder to themselves and others, through what we call their KindSet.

Having a healthy KindSet is similar to having a healthy Mindset, except that it's about Kindness. It means having a focus, making decisions and taking actions which are truly kind to you and others, resulting in a more balanced, healthy, wealthy and enjoyable life.

We each have our personal reasons for wanting to increase Kindness. You're welcome to read our reasons here. Meanwhile, let's focus on you, and how we can help you on your journey.

This journey to rekindle and spread Kindness starts within you, just as it does for each of us.

Your Personal Kindness Journey

We hope you agree, Kindness isn't some fluffy concept, it's a real world way of being that creates profound and long-term results in life, relationships and work. This is a global journey for all of us.

We believe that knowing yourself in a deep, meaningful and profound way is the secret to being the best version of you, and for developing a KindSet that serves you and the world. 

And knowing others in a similar way is the key to healthy, happy and balanced relationships. 

Your journey with us starts with you taking The Vitality Test. It's free to anyone in the world, and it's our way of spreading a little kindness by making a big difference for you.

The Vitality Test is built around ancient Chinese Philosophy, and if you're not familiar with this Energy based way of looking at the world, you'll be amazed by its power, accuracy and ability to be applied in your life, your relationships and your work. 

Once you've taken The Vitality Test, we'll share some deep insights and then give you some guidance on what to do next, based on practical but inspiring small steps that get results. 

The Vitality Test is our gift to the world. It's simple, easy and free.

Every time somebody takes The Vitality Test we give someone else clean life-saving water to drink, through our friends at B1G1

At the Five Institute, we believe that contribution is a key component of success, and part of our social responsibility. Contributing can take many forms and is an individual expression of our highest values and how we wish to participate in the world.

Imagine how you’d feel if with every action and transaction, something great happened.

That what sits at the heart of the B1G1 philosophy and our work with them here at the Five Institute.

Gido Schimanski... "Nick’s work will change your life..."

“Working with Nick has been a truly groundbreaking experience and I could literally hear one penny drop after another. It finally made perfect sense why some areas of my business were constantly jarring, where others are thriving without me even trying. 

And utilising those insights has enabled me to take my relationships with my clients to a whole new level. If you want to find out how to harness your genius rather than banging your head against the same close door over and over again than Nick’s work will change your life.”
