Science and life tells us that there are certain things that highly successful people do, think about and certain ways in which they act, view the world and treat themselves and others, that determines their experience of life, their success levels and how other people regard them.

In short, their belief system enables them to be effective, efficient, generally kind and highly aware, whilst getting the most out of themselves and others, achieving a whole lot and enjoying the ride.

Here are some defining characteristics which these dynamic thought leaders have in common:

1. Don’t define themselves by their past. They deal with their past and focus on enjoying the present while creating their future.

2. Operate from an open paradigm which includes all possibilities, processing events as they happen and trusting themselves to respond and adapt as required.

3. Don’t have anything to prove or an axe to grind. They are truly humble, are seldom if ever concerned with their ego and know that their work speaks for itself.

“Stop giving people the power to steal your peace. It belongs to you and no one should be able to run away with it.” – A. Elle

4. Value people first and realize that people are what life is all about.  From the office cleaner to the sales clerk to CEOs, they treat everyone with an equal respect, dignity and with genuine care.

5. Know that their feelings aren’t real, but just the physical result of underlying beliefs based on conditioning and past experiences.

6. Are fully autonomous, depending on no one, but hiring the best people to advise/help them and allowing friends and family to contribute to them.

7. Their relationships are an equal or near equal exchange, where energy is freely given and received without unconscious agendas or imbalance.

8. Don’t lament what is wrong in the world (that would make them part of the problem) but take immediate action to rectify anything directly applicable to them and always look to how they can leave the planet a better place.

9. Are fully responsible for their own reactions, emotions, choices, results and interactions with others, never blaming or avoiding consequences.

10. Are organized however that looks for them and set their routines up to get the best out of themselves mentally, physically and in terms of output and productivity.

11. Know their bodies and don’t have self-defeating habits/relationships that lower their focus or energy levels – doing what is required to be effective and efficient at work whilst feeling optimal. If it doesn’t add to their lives, they won’t do it.

12. Are ethical and do what they say they are going to when they say they will. Other people know their word is good and they are reliable.

13. Take action and get results. They don’t react, but they make clear decisions and get things done.

“The power you have is to be the best version of yourself you can be, so you can create a better world.” – Ashley Rickards

14.  Are willing to be seen and judged by others. Whilst they may value their reputation, they don’t care what others personally think of them. They know they can’t control that, so they choose to be unaffected by it because what they are achieving is too important.

15. Speak well of others and don’t judge. They allow others to be themselves and choose not to become bothered by poor behaviour, acknowledging where others are at and making decisions from that space.

16. Mentor and lead others, always looking to bring out the best in their team or those around them. Their ability to inspire is also based on what they do and how they do it, getting on with things effectively and efficiently.

17. Are grateful for their lives and the people around them. They have appreciation for the small things and are present with all that is.

18. Don’t take themselves too seriously and are willing to laugh at themselves and the human condition.

19. Allow others the dignity of mistakes and themselves too, not judging or beating up on themselves for anything. Instead they learn from events and use that knowledge to their advantage going forwards.

20. Deal with stuff when it happens. If they help with something, they will seek that help and move forwards in the best way possible, growing as they go.

21. Take good care of their physical health and well-being as they know that is key to getting good results, aging well, remaining vital and looking and being their best.

22. Have fun! They know that fun and spontaneity is essential to performing well to job satisfaction, to creativity and bonding with others. They know the benefits of feel good rewards as well as bottom lines, profit margins and outward success. They know there’s no point in the journey if the journey sucks.

23. Work hard and enjoy the inherent satisfaction in what they achieve. This in itself creates a sense of ease and balance which is enhanced by other aspects of their lifestyle.

24. Delegate where required and don’t stretch themselves too thin, preferring to concentrate on what they do best.  

25. Have immersive hobbies which they engage in at least twice a week, for a total recharge of focus and regeneration of the body and creativity.

“You were put on this earth to achieve your greatest self, to live out your purpose, and to do it courageously.” – Steve Maraboli

26. Love to read, learn and integrate what they know into how they do things. They are always looking to improve and adapt to a changing world and be innovative wherever possible.

27. See opportunities where others see problems and understand that nothing is immovable or unchangeable, only thinking makes it so. They are visionary and like to believe in the ‘impossible’.

Now you can begin to consider, reflect on and implement more of these winning beliefs into your own life and business in a way that works for you. In the process you will find you can out-create your previous levels of accomplishment and success to become even greater.

How to Break the Cycles of Mediocrity and Manifest Your Greatness

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity



Image Credit: Midjourney

In just a few weeks, we will be wrapping up 2023. Can you believe it? This year has been absolutely incredible for me.

I have seen amazing doors opened, new relationships formed and I am seeing dreams realized in my life. While this seems like the hallmarks of a great year, this has also been the most challenging year of my life. With all of the change happening in my life, I have been forced out of my comfort zone and challenged to grow in every area of my life.

I can truly say that I have made the most of my moments this year and I have used everything as a catalyst for maximizing my greatest potential.

As a revolutionary leader, I have the pleasure of consulting and advising leaders around the world to fulfill purpose, realize their greatest potential and make an impact.

I want to share some insights with you that will help you to break cycles of mediocrity and manifest your greatness

Everything legal must come through the matrix

I am sure that some of you are wondering why I am using the term matrix. However, what you have to understand is that I am trying to make a highly complex spiritual principle practical to understand.

Regardless of your spiritual beliefs, every life has an origin and I believe that origin is divine and begins with eternity. You are birthed from eternity and into time to fulfill a unique purpose and assignment in your lifetime and generation.

The matrix is simply the portal or vehicle that brings something out of the invisible realm and into tangible form. The problem with much of the teaching today is that it excludes the matrix. We are told to believe that success is instantaneous and overnight.

Nobody talks about how a dream progresses through stages beginning with visualization and ultimately culminating in manifestation. Without a matrix or portal then everything that you attempt to birth and build will be illegal.

The matrix not only makes you legal but it gives you the authority and power to function as the greatest expression of who you were created to be. 

Every matrix has an incubation process

While many people admire and respect me today, I remember a time when nobody knew who I was or the significance of my message. How did I get to where I am today? I got here through an incubation process.

In other words, everything that has been destined for your life is incubating and awaiting a set time of manifestation. The problem is that most people live their entire lives idle and never initiate the incubation process.

What do I meany by that? Most people are living reckless and very few people are living intentionally. I am amazed at the number of people I have conversations with that have no vision, goals or strategies for their lives. They show great promise and they have undeniable potential.

However, without development they will die with their dreams still in them.

Everything that has been destined for your life must be incubated and converted to become realities born to time. 

“Visualize this thing that you want, see it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin to build.” – Robert Collier

You must give expression to that which is not yet born to time

When you think about a matrix or a prophetic incubation process, you have to understand that potential is often unrealized and untapped. In other words, your potential is in raw form and your potential cannot serve you as long as it is untapped.

The thing that makes me valuable is that I have the ability to convert potential into power. I have done it in my own life and I have empowered leaders around the world to do the same. How do you convert potential into power?

First, it is important to note that you have to perceive potential. If you cannot perceive your potential then you can never cultivate your potential. In addition, you must take the time to cultivate your potential. We often get excited about our capabilities; however, we never expand our capacity in order to realize our greatest potential.

In other words, the strength of your potential is only discovered through your willingness to stretch. The more we are challenged the more we are empowered to expand our capacity for greatness. Most of all, you must begin to express your potential. The expression of potential is different for every person.

For example, the expression of my potential is best demonstrated through the thoughts, ideas, products, services, books, etc.

For another person the expression of potential may look like a screenplay, artwork, sports, scientific discoveries, medical breakthroughs, etc.

Regardless of the form of expression, I know that you will live empty and unfulfilled until you make the decision to express your potential. The expression of your potential gives voice to your dreams, life to your vision, significance to your moments and activates your true power.

You must manifest your greatness

As a revolutionary thinker and leader, my work has impacted people around the world. I am grateful that my life is a source of empowerment to so many people. However, before anyone could ever benefit from my life, I had to make a non-negotiable decision to become who I was born to be.

I wish I could tell you that this journey is easy and that you will get there overnight. However, in a world that celebrates us for doing we are often criticized for being. As a result, I wasted a lot of time trying to be who other people wanted me to be instead of being who I was born to be.

There is no greatness without becoming and there is no becoming with authenticity. It is through our bravery to be vulnerable that we ultimately manifest our greatness. We do not bless the world by being a duplicate. We bless the world when we honor our difference. When you honor your difference you honor your potential.

Ultimately, your difference is how you manifest your greatness.

When you present anything but your authentic self to the world, you are playing small and you are robbing the world of your significance. Manifesting your greatness requires you to master your gifts.

Let’s be honest, we’ve all crossed paths with a toxic leader in our careers at some point. Unfortunately, while some toxic leaders don’t even bother to hide their behaviour, some know very well how to conceal their true selves behind a strong-built facade. The latter is the most dangerous of the two. (more…)
