5Point’s five guiding principles are: Respect (For each other, the environment, for the experience and the knowledge we inherit from those who inspire and teach us); Commitment (To overcome fear and give ourselves completely to the challenge at hand while leading a vital existence and never allowing ourselves to become complacent); Humility (To assume the courage and the discipline to listen to our intuition and not our egos, always mindful of our place in the natural order); Purpose (To muster the motivation and conviction necessary to pursue our highest aspirations in the face of adversity); Balance (To maintain our focus and energy in life, in nature and on the journeys we undertake while things we cannot control shift around us).
