Often I think of how the United States was formed. It was formed by brilliant men that had a vision and belief that self government can be accomplished. I also wonder what the average IQ of these men was? What made these men great?
5-Point Wellness would venture to guess that their average IQ was some where in the neighborhood of 120 or more. For those of you reading this and are not familiar with what IQ stands for, “It is a Intelligence Quotient (IQ), which is a score derived from one of several standardized tests designed to assess human intelligence.” Why are IQ scores important to know?

We the founders of 5-Point Wellness believe that everyone should know what their baseline IQ scores are prior to participating in the 5-Point Wellness programs. This will give you the knowledge of what your IQ is now and what you are able to become in the future.
5-Point Wellness believes that in order for the United States of America to be great again, it comes down to each individual citizen to improve their psychological/mental wellness. As each individual diligently strives to improve their psychological/mental wellness, America can rapidly begin to be the leading country in every aspect imaginable. The converse is the same, the more Americans expect others or even the government to solve all their problems such as telling them what they should learn and what not to learn, then the dumber we will become and the USA will dwindle into a weak and mediocre psychological/mental country.
The first continental congress of 1776 declared the following,
“...We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.” ... it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security...”
We at 5-Point Wellness believe that it is the individual citizen's unalienable right to self govern and to pursue psychological/mental wellness and strength. It is not the government's right or duty to meddle in such affairs with the only exception being when you put others at harm. It is the governments duty to provide the laboratory or environment for each citizen to be safe to pursue and make their individual self not only a contributing member of society to adequately achieve normalcy, but It is up to each of us to pursue happiness by striving and achieving psychological/mental wellness and strength. It is only by this way that we will become well balanced and powerful as an individual. Collectively as each individual becomes their full potential self, then as a society, and as a nation we will be strong.
We challenge everyone that subscribes to 5-Point wellness to make yourself the greatest you can be psychologically/mentally. In turn, you can be on the path of happiness and you can edify and influence those around you to do the same.
Psychological/mental wellness and strength is a life long endeavor; however, psychological/mental balance and wellness can be achieved through consistency, hard work, and diligence within a short 90-days for most people. If you are looking for a program that will make you instantly psychologically/mentally strong this is not the place. There is no such thing in our opinion. Be diligent, be strong, be relentless in your pursuit of psychological/mental wellness and strength. Then you will be able to achieve anything you set out your mind to. Lets explore what Psychological/Mental wellness means.
What is Psychological/Mental Wellness?
If you look up what Psychological/Mental wellness means you will see a wide range of answers. Some dictionaries would simply state that Psychological/mental wellness means, “a state of emotional and psychological well-being in which an individual is able to use his or her cognitive and emotional capabilities, adequately function in society, and meet the ordinary demands of every day life”. 5-Point does not necessarily agree with this definition because merely meeting every day life's demands is not a positive way of looking at things. It is more of a neutral way of looking at things. Neither greatness stems from neutrality nor does it promote strength, wellness, and mental toughness. Imagine someone you know that you think really has it “all together” meaning is psychologically/mentally strong. Does that person function autonomously? Does that person command their environment around them, meaning they take life by the horns and make it work for them? Does this person have mostly positive relations with the people around them? Does this person seem to have accepted who they are as a person? Does this person act as if they know what their purpose in life is? And finally, does person seem like they are striving constantly to extend themselves to grow as a an individual and intellectually?
5-Point Wellness purports to claim that Psychological/Mental Wellness is the sum of autonomy, self confidence, intelligence, education, problem solving, and self reliance. When an individual has these 5 things constantly balanced then they are what we would consider as a Psychologically/Mentally strong person.
How is Psychologically/Mental Strength Obtained?

Psychological/Mental strength involves more than just willpower; it requires hard work and commitment.
