Here’s A New Way of “Finishing Strong” This Year

If you’re in the business of, well, any business, you are constantly seeing this message of, “Finishing strong.” Whether it’s the month, quarter, or the dreaded end of the year, you are constantly encouraged to review, correct, ramp up, and work harder to see those results. It’s the key to success right?

What isn’t often said is, this is exhausting! What do we do if we don’t feel like pushing ourselves harder? What if we are ready to let the results remain what they are and have that be an appropriate amount of success? 

As we wrap up 2021, I’m calling it in. I’m happy to say I made progress in the direction of my goals this year and whatever I didn’t achieve, can be done even after that magical number of 12:00AM hits on January 1, 2022.

You Deserve a Break

No matter what has happened this year, you deserve a break. You deserve to breath, relax, and enjoy your time with yourself, your friends, or family. I don’t care if you epically failed in all of your business ventures, you deserve to take the time to reset, realign, and get back on track. 

Working through exhaustion, a cluttered or distracted mind won’t do you or your business any good. You will be putting in half-assed effort and receive half-assed results. Making commitments to something your heart is not really in, is only going to cause negative energy and emotions to show up. Make sure whatever you are doing at the end of this year, is what you really truly want to be doing. 

I’m not saying you should ignore every email or call, but I am saying to invest your energy wisely.

“The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” – Eleanor Roosevelt

The Results You Achieve Next Will Be Far Greater 

Taking time to rest, is only going to benefit you and your business. Have you ever gone on vacation or taken a long weekend only to come back with a full list of inspired ideas and inspiration to implement? I know I have.

Shutting your mind off, allowing yourself to direct your thoughts and attention elsewhere is what can help you come back fully focused and engaged. The obvious benefit of coming back well-rested and energized doesn’t hurt either. 

What you focus on expands. If you are constantly looking at the different points of your business that need improvement, you’re going to hit a mental wall. The answers don’t come from constantly looking at the problem, it comes from experiencing what’s around it. 

Trying Something New Brings a New Perspective

Let yourself enjoy your time away from the pressure of business and results just for a little bit. Enjoy yourself and remember why you’ve been pushing yourself so hard in the first place.

Live your life. Go out and try something new, let the experience expand your mind and bring a new perspective. Trying new things or even getting back to something you haven’t done in a long while, can recharge you and let those creative juices flow.

Trying something new could also mean making new, unexpected connections and opportunities. I had been warding off an invitation to help collaborate and organize an event this year (something completely outside of my comfort zone), but I finally decided to l hop on one of the planning calls. The instant joy I found in connecting with fellow creators and visionaries, launched me into a completely new level of thinking. There are others out there just like me, I bet the same can be said for you!

So what does, “Finishing strong,” mean to me? It means letting myself prepare for the next level of impact I intend to make. Preparing mentally, emotionally, and physically. 

Finishing strong means setting myself up for success by being fully charged, inspired, and most of all grateful to have the opportunity to have the business that I do. 

I encourage you to reset, re-align, and reimagine what success looks like for you going forward. Remind yourself that you deserve all the success in the world, but you also deserve to take a step back, slow down, and be okay with where you’re currently at.

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…)
