6 Steps to Uncover Your Inner Greatness

find your greatness

Have you ever wondered how another highly successful person can help you channel your inner greatness to phenomenal success? Do you want to get more in touch with your own inner greatness?

Everyday and all over the world people are doing amazing things. There are people who have mastered their passions and who are achieving some magnificent results. Likely there is an expert who is doing exactly what you would want to be doing right now.

These people are not super-human or somehow unreachable, but rather they do everyday things and have strategies that you can learn to be highly successful as well.

Here are the 6 steps that you can take for uncovering your inner greatness:

1. Define exactly what you want

Often people have no idea what they want in life and they are miserable because of it. The first step is to define exactly what it is that you want. When you make it clear what you are after your mind has a definite goal in mind that it can shoot for and propel you towards. Often times luck or coincidence will just appear giving you just the opportunities you need.

“There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it.” –Napoleon Hill

2. Find out who has done it before you

The key is to research and get an understanding of who has actually done what you want to do in life rather than the people who just talk about it. Take your time to get a good understanding of the experts who know about becoming the person you want to become. Choose your expert carefully. Find the best. Ask yourself, “Would I really want to become just like this person?”

 

3. Absorb all of this expert’s content

Whether it is a YouTube channel, a blog, or any free content that your expert has, start there and absorb all of it. You want to consume as much information possible from this teacher of yours so that you can get a feel for this person’s inner mindsets as well as what they do to get amazing results.

You want to aim for being this teacher’s best student. You will already know all of that person’s concepts and ideas before going on to the next level.

 

4. Bring the expert into your life

If you can be friends with the expert or could have them as a coach I would highly encourage doing so. Huge growth can happen when you get a coach or align with positive influences who can push you to new heights.

When you get a coach or mentor they will be able to teach you new things, but more importantly they can take you to a higher level of thinking and they will push you to become even better.

Often when you are pursuing this new skill you will attract new friends and people into your life who are going after just what you want. This is an amazing time to befriend the person who has the skills you are looking for.

 

5. Go learn something inversely related

Testing all of your newfound knowledge and skills with something contradictory yet still related will be the test that propels you even further. Two areas of life such as relationships and mixed martial arts, or weight lifting and getting good at business is how you can relate this one.

This is important so that you will at first see these subjects as completely different and unrelated, but soon you will find that the key underlying principles for having success in one area will lead you to success in this new area.

By mastering more subjects that don’t seem related you will find yourself to grow even more in your knowledge and application of your first skill set.

 

6. Teach your skill in the original craft to others

Probably the most important thing that you can do to propel yourself to be an expert on any subject is to go out and teach on that subject.

When you teach others your knowledge you have to be an expert. In addition you apply yourself with the basics, allowing yourself to go back through your own learning process to teach it to others. This allows you to go deeper in all the knowledge that you have acquired on the subject.

When you teach your newfound skill and knowledge to others it will lead you to even further progression of bringing out your inner greatness.

Sometimes, life doesn’t seem to make any sense. Albert Einstein once said “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.” Here’s the funny thing. We will say that line about someone else, have a good chuckle, and then DO THE SAME THING OURSELVES! This time, it’s not that funny, is it? I know. I’ve done it myself. (more…)

4 Reasons Why Content Is Pivotal For Mental Health Healing

One of the most important things for an entrepreneur’s mental health is expressing their feelings, thoughts, and emotions. This is where content creation and writing becomes pivotal. Whether you read something that resonates with you or you write a compelling blog post, the act of expressing yourself through content can help to put a smile on your face and make you feel better about things.

Most entrepreneurs don’t spend as much time taking care of their mental health as they should. Over the course of your career, you will experience a lot of ups and downs; these emotions have the potential to take a toll on your mind and body if you don’t learn to manage them properly.

Here are four reasons why expression through content is pivotal for healing, slowing yourself down, and giving yourself grace when the going gets tough.

1. Content can be a form of self-expression

When you are an entrepreneur, you frequently face feelings of insecurity, doubt, fear, apathy, and exhaustion, just to name a few. Some days it feels like no one is on your business’s side and everyone else has it all figured out. On those days some of us try to look at our website’s analytics to cheer up. 

But an even more freeing task is creating content. You create content to improve your business and reach more people’s lives. But, there is something special that happens when you write with the intention of expressing your thoughts and feelings — you open a door to yourself. 

Content is inherently personal, which means content creators open themselves up when they share their thoughts on a platform. Everything from the title of the post, the keywords they choose to include, and even the content itself helps you to understand who the author of that post truly is. And as an entrepreneur, this can be an important experience because it allows others to empathize with you.

2. Self-reflection will lift you up

As you think through what to write about and how to express yourself, the process of self reflection is a valuable step you need to go through. You’re able to reflect on the blessings you have, assess what you learned from the negative experiences, and create a plan on how to maintain the positive experiences you’ve had. 

There are a few ways that self reflection can help you with mental health healing. The act of reflecting on your experiences helps to create clarity in feelings, thoughts and emotions which will eventually lead into acceptance for what has happened or is happening currently without feeling overwhelmed by it all. This process also leads people towards finding new things they enjoy doing. Self reflection is therapeutic and can be implemented anytime you feel the need to overcome overwhelm.

“Writing in a journal each day allows you to direct your focus to what you accomplished, what you’re grateful for and what you’re committed to doing better tomorrow. Thus, you more deeply enjoy your journey each day.” – Hal Elrod

3. A sense of belonging and camaraderie

It is important to have a support network of people who will listen and understand what you are going through. When you post a blog or upload a video on YouTube, there are others who feel the same way and experience a sense of connection with you.

When you put time, attention and thoughtfulness into your writing, it is amazing when someone reads what you’ve written and comments on it thanking you or expressing how they resonate with what you’re going through. It’s hard to put into words how powerful it feels when someone who has gone through the same experience and reads your words then reaches out.  There is power in expression but miracles happen when people bond over a similar experience.

4. Library of content to share with more people

It can be very difficult to know what content to share with people as the symptoms of mental health disorders (anxiety, depression, etc.) vary from person to person. But as you accumulate more and more content, this will increase the number of articles or videos available for readers to choose from depending on their specific purpose. It also builds your personal library of resources you’re able to share to different people you encounter or engage directly with.

As chaotic and distracting social media can be, it can also be a beacon of hope with the right content. Many people share viral posts, or content that interest them. Since your content is valuable and personal, the more you share it, the more likely it is to be shared with the right audience.

You never know who is watching (reading)

Your content is speaking to someone and even though they may not be actively engaged, their experiences with your work are impacting them. Think about the last time you watched TV: did everyone in the room have something entertaining to say? 

You never know who’s watching because there’s always somebody reading your posts or viewing your videos-even if they just skim through it briefly. This is why creating content worth consuming is critical, not only to get you out of your funk, but also to serve your audience.  Be authentic and stay true to yourself; make every post count as an opportunity for connection with your best self and for potential readers to bond with you.
