5 Things to Do While Waiting for Success to Manifest in Your Life



success manifest

Success is the buzz word everyone wants to hear in conjunction with their own name. As much as our desires are immediate, success cultivates over time with consistency and diligent effort. But no one wants to wait!

When you begin creating your dream and making it a part of your daily landscape, the satisfaction of success seems to be just steps away. Yet, in reality, success could be months to years away but again no one wants to wait!

In order for success to manifest in your life, waiting is a guarantee! Even though it doesn’t seem fair, waiting has it perks and will still allow you to move forward with your goals and dreams.

So what do you do during those infamous times of waiting? Here are 5 things you should be doing:

1. Run your own race

As success haunts your mindset, it’s easy to watch and compare what others are doing in your field. Your success is not built on someone else’s timeline. You must run your own race and do what you are uniquely created to accomplish.

You have talents and gifts to share with the world. Running your own race will continue to open the doors with your name boldly written. Remember, the race you are running is for a lifetime of impact!

“Life isn’t about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself.” – George Bernard Shaw

2. Take the next step always

Regardless of where you are in reaching your goals and dreams, there is always a next step you can take. You must drop the excuse of gaining something in return for the success title, and focus specifically on the next step.

The next step could be as simple as outlining what to do next. Don’t over complicate what is plainly in front of you. Draw on what you know and execute. Instead of hunkering down in the “wait ditch”, take the next step always. One step at a time leads to miles of greatness!

3. Celebrate the little wins

With every step you take, there is a progression in your accomplishments. Some may be big, but others might be small. This happens due to your consistency and approach to obtaining what you want out of life. As you continue to expand your knowledge and grow in your strengths, success will continue to be on the horizon. Celebrate the little win; they could be your greatest successes.

4. Fuel your passion

Your goals and dreams are precious gems in your life. When you are waiting for success to fall on your doorstep, be willing to exhaust and embrace every opportunity to expand your passion.

Keep your heart beating for what you are dreaming will come true. It’s not a fairytale, this is your life! There is nothing more exhilarating than chasing your dreams while you fuel your passion.

“My mission in life is not merely to survive, but to thrive; and to do so with some passion, some compassion, some humor, and some style.” – Maya Angelou 

5. Reflect on where you began

Look at your puzzle and see where the pieces have come together. You are making incredible strides to getting to where you want to go. You didn’t get to where you are by accident.

Take a moment, or two, a day, and reflect on where you began. Even journal your gratitude for the journey taken thus far. As you continue to map out and navigate your life, remember that your strength is your story.

Waiting doesn’t have to be as dreadful as perceived by your own mindset. Success will continue to show up so long as you are willing to do what it takes to continue the journey. Waiting is not an excuse to slow down. It’s an opportunity to soar higher, to extinguish the thoughts of failure, and to make your dreams a reality!

20 Ways You Can Become a Powerful Communicator



Emile Steenveld Speaker and Coach

Some people seem to naturally know how to effectively communicate in a group setting. They can express themselves clearly and listen attentively without dominating the conversation.

Being a powerful communicator is important for several reasons, including building and maintaining relationships, achieving goals, resolving conflicts, improving productivity, leading and influencing others, advancing in your career, expressing yourself more confidently and authentically, and improving your mental and emotional well-being. Effective communication is an essential life skill that can benefit you in all aspects of your life.

But, don’t worry if you don’t naturally possess this skill, as effective communication is something that can be developed with practice, planning and preparation.

1.  Listen actively: Practice active listening by giving your full attention to the speaker and responding to what they are saying.


2. Use “I” statements: Speak from your own perspective and avoid placing blame or making accusations.


3. Avoid assumptions: Don’t make assumptions about what the other person is thinking or feeling.


4. Be clear: Express your thoughts and feelings clearly and concisely by getting to the point and avoid using jargon or overly complex language.


5. Show empathy: Show that you understand and care about the other person’s feelings.


6. Offer valuable insights: When speaking in a group, provide a valuable takeaway or actionable item that people can walk away with.


7. Be an active listener: Listen attentively and respond accordingly, incorporating your points into the conversation.


8. Choose the right time: Pick the most opportune time to speak to ensure that you have the group’s attention and can deliver your message without interruption.


9. Be the unifying voice: Step in and unify the group’s thoughts to calm down the discussion and insert your point effectively.


10. Keep responses concise: Keep responses short and to the point to show respect for others’ time.


11. Avoid unnecessary comments: Avoid commenting on everything and only speak when you have something important to say.


12. Cut the fluff: Avoid being long-winded and get straight to the point.


13. Prepare ahead of time: Sort out your points and practice them before speaking in a group.


14. Smile and be positive: Smile and nod along as others speak, to build a positive relationship and be respected when it’s your turn to speak.


15. Take responsibility: Take responsibility for your own actions and feelings.


16. Ask questions: Ask questions to clarify any confusion or misunderstandings.


17. Avoid interrupting: Allow the other person to finish speaking without interruption.


18. Practice active listening: Repeat what the other person said to ensure you have understood correctly.


19. Use your body language too: Use nonverbal cues such as eye contact, facial expressions, and body language to convey your message and build rapport.


20. Be aware of the tone of your voice: it should be calm and assertive, not aggressive or passive.


By keeping these tips in mind, you can improve your communication skills and become a more powerful communicator, which can help you build better relationships, achieve your goals, and lead a more fulfilling life.
