Human Abilities are potentialities that can be trained through knowledge and transformed into intelligent actions that produce results that elevate the human being and improve the quality of life.
Human abilities are the instruments by which
the individual discovers fulfillment,
the family achieves happiness,
working efforts obtain the proper success,
society cooperates for the common good,
humanity lives cohesive and in peace.
Developing human abilities
is a benefit for every individual,
it is a benefit for Humanity. Human abilities permit to develop an intelligent society, able to function with sound cooperative principles
and to establish the optimal balance
between the individual dimension and the collective dimension.

WHAT WE WANT TO OBTAIN
Centro Studi Podresca and Vitae ONLUS, volunteering association for the quality education propose the establishment of the International Day of Human Abilities by the United Nations.

WHY
Each human being, societies and humanity need a constant, positive and sustainable development.
One fundamental element of development is the maturity of the person.
Maturity leads to right decisions, good communication, cooperation, helpful behavior, prevents problems, obtains results and improvement. To know and to put in practice human abilities, is the right answer to value the human being and help to live life at its best, both in the personal dimension and in the community.

THE NATURE OF HUMAN ABILITIES AWARENESS THE REASON WITHIN
The motivation for improvement is present within us, it is us: who we are.
To be aware it means knowing to know.
Awareness is a source of ethic, motivation and energy.
Awareness is not a static factor, it raises or decades.
We need a process to raise awareness in order to accomplish a complete personal life and achieve a collaborative and safe social life.

PERSONAL ABILITIES INTERACT CONSTRUCTIVELY IN LIFE
Human behavior can be positive, helpful or destructive.
Personal maturity, awareness and training is decisive in order to improve
a constructive interaction in life and prevent conflicts and violence.
We need to improve through a specific knowledge abilities such choice, decision, will, emotions, loyalty, resilience, freedom, how to overcome a crisis, how to obtain goals.

RELATIONAL ABILITIES COOPERATE WITH OTHERS
We need to introduce the concept of Relational Abilities as abilities that can be learned, understood, developed and used in everyday experiences. We need to establish a simple principle in life:
obtaining what we need without hurting and damaging others.
Relational Abilities are tools that grant positive exchanges between people,
that allow to achieve common goals and prevent conflicts and problems.
