Dr. Nat’s Traits of Success – the 5 R’s:

Respect - “We live in a society where respect is conditional. Respect has lost its value. I think we need to make it unconditional and offer respect to people, places and things and give them the respect that they’re due.”

Responsibility - “We all recognize when we’ve gotten in a situation where people are not responsible and it’s caused major issues across different domains of our life whether it’s the financial situation or the family situation. Being responsible and accountable is so very important.”

Recognition - “We think change and success happen overnight. But it really does take a real strategy. I try to encourage people to study success. Look around at people who’ve accomplished what you hope to do.”

Renewal - “Find a rock and sit on it. Really look at yourself. Figure out who you are and where you want to go. Take some time to make yourself a better person. If you’re in a relationship, take some time. Couples, especially when you have children, it’s so easy to fall apart as you’re raising your family. Parents with kids with disabilities have an even higher rate of falling apart. Taking time to keep renewing that relationship is so very important.”

Resilience - “A lot of people think about resilience when there’s a problem. You need to look at resilience when you’re successful as well. Whether you succeed or you’re challenged, you need to be informed by that experience. So often, we want to live in the high end or we think that we’ll be in the low end forever. Most of us live in the middle. When you find yourself going up and down, you need to find resilience to bring yourself back to that equilibrium.”
