Eric Erenstoft   is an expert on Conscious Intelligence® and a prolific author, futurist, entrepreneur, businessman, philanthropist, who has emerged out of this brave new 21st century to disrupt the transactional way of thinking most people default to today when perspective over our circumstances is not properly illuminated.  “Peak Performance isn’t only plunging your foot on the accelerator, it is equally about taking your foot off the brake.  While we cultivate the skills to excel, we also must be conscientious of removing the weight and impediments that have us get in our own way.”

Conscious Intelligence® is a revolutionary approach to illuminated perspective. How we see the world has a lot to do with how we participate in it.  Employing the tools of Conscious Intelligence® poises us to attain clarity and perspective within our circumstances to bring about optimal results—to respond optimally rather than react hastily.

Most of us operate on the false notion that our circumstances dictate the path and trajectory of our life.  The thing is: We are not our circumstances.  Our circumstances are not us—unless we either allow them to be or are unaware we have choice in the matter.

When we reach overwhelm, be it from stress, high-pressure or anxiety, due to the circumstances becoming unstable, disrupted, even hijacked—we tend to make hasty decisions rather than informed ones. We react rather than respond because we are in a state of fight/flight trying to survive.  As a result, we are not strategizing, we are just trying not to drown.

“We cannot always control our circumstances, but we can control how we conduct ourselves within them.”

Conscious Intelligence® is the attainment of clarity and perspective within our circumstances to bring about optimal results.

Eric Erenstoft has deconstructed Conscious Intelligence® and organized it into a framework of its elemental components he calls Invisible Distinctions®.   His work frames these distinctions into a paradigm, The Conscious Intelligence® paradigm.
