Me We Do Be: The Four Cornerstones of Success reveals that all behaviors can be organized within four categories. Me is quality thinking that builds wisdom, We habits form quality relationships, Do actions build productivity, and Be designs the future. Me We Do Be connects the dots and creates a fresh perspective for moving forward.

The Me We Do Be principles are the result of research that has spanned 25 years at the intersection of sociology and economics. Dr. Randall Bell masterfully interweaves classic behavioral research with his own work on high-profile cases—including Chernobyl, the World Trade Center and O.J. Simpson—to reveal why some dive, some survive and others thrive.

Success can be defined in many ways. Obviously, some people define it as making money. Others see success as leading a great organization, breaking sales records, having a happy family life, finding true love or winning a competition. Some see it as contributing to a worthy cause, completing a degree or mastering a musical instrument. Others view success as beating cancer, connecting with the divine or healing from an emotional wound.

There is no one-size-fits-all for success. Me We Do Be lets us define what success means to us individually. But in so doing, it looks at the foundational elements that apply to us all.

The power of Me We Do Be is that it cuts through the noise and simply puts the focus on the classic, timeless principles that build authentic success. Indeed, with a solid foundation we can build anything we want.

Me We Do Be: The Four Cornerstones of Success is available online at Amazon. All proceeds from the book are donated to continuing the efforts of Core IQ.
