I started receiving my first awards and recognitions in the early grades of primary school in various fields. To be honest, I don’t even remember what it all was. But I know it meant a lot to me. As if it awakened in me a desire to win!
After I got serious about athletics in high school, “serious” results and rewards started (and when I first became a state champion, the desire to compete faded; basically, the EGO, which wanted attention, faded):
However, I quickly realized that the reward can only be the logical consequence of something you enjoy. So in later creations, I started to hide more and reject nominations because I wanted to have some intimacy of my own. Everything I did, I did it for myself, not for others, I really didn’t even want others to see. Maybe I was even afraid that they would destroy a part of me, no matter what the criticism was. I just wasn’t ready for the public.
However, as I slowly began to promote my business idea of the Dynamic Leadership Model, the logical consequence was that I would have to re-enter the public and so the nominations and awards began:
Award of the Slovenian Association for Quality and Excellence of the Republic of Slovenia
Nobel prize for Economy (Global)
Award for innovation of the Chamber of Commerce of Slovenia
The Majesty’s Peace Award (Jordan)
Gusi Peace Prize (Asia)
The Zayed International Prize for the Environment (UAE)
