In life, there is no shortcut to success. Only through determination and perseverance, can we overcome our adversities. Do you know why people fail? It is because they give up, and they feel that it is not worth trying anymore. Well, this is where they are wrong. Perhaps, if they tried a little harder, they would have been successful in their pursuit.

Determination and perseverance shape our personalities, while faith in our abilities makes us stronger. Faith is extremely crucial as it trumps anxiety, and helps us not to be overwhelmed by the sheer magnitude of the task ahead of us. Through perseverance, faith, and determination, we can conquer hardships and achieve our goals. 

Here is how these three attributes help us:

1. Keep Our Heads High and March Ahead

Determination comes from faith. And when we are determined, we strive to achieve our objectives despite repeated failures.  

Michael Jordan is considered to be the greatest basketball player of all time. But it was not an easy start for him. After he tried out for the varsity basketball team, he was cut out. At 5’11,’ he was deemed too short. It was a huge setback for him. But he didn’t lose hope and kept at it.

Not only did his skills improve, but his height grew too, and he became the star of Laney’s junior varsity team. Today, as we all know, he went on to become one of the greats, playing for the Chicago Bulls. So, did the humiliation and the taunts bother him? No. In fact, it inspired him even more. 

So, there is no shame in losing and trying again. But, if you quit, you will repent for the rest of your life. Have faith in yourself, maintain discipline, be determined and work hard. You will succeed.    

“There’s nothing I can really do but keep going out there and swinging.” – Freddie Freeman

2. Gain Experience 

Through repeated trials, we are made aware as to what works and what doesn’t. But, if you were not determined and had not put in the dedicated effort, would you have known it? Roadblocks will be part and parcel of your journey, but it is faith that will drive you to the end of the road. 

Thomas Edison, a very successful inventor, scientist and businessman, famously quoted “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work.” While he was inventing the light bulb, he made a thousand unsuccessful attempts. But, did he give in? No, he remained unfazed by his failures. In his very next attempt, he was victorious. So, unless you try, how can you know that you won’t be successful in your endeavour?

3. Change Your Approach

Time and time again, successful men and women have taught us that there is no alternative to hard work. If we are determined and have passion and faith in what we are doing, we will flourish. Furthermore, if you are failing, take it positively, learn from the mistakes and change your approach.

Bill Gates, an American business magnate and co-founder of Microsoft Corporation, dropped out of Harvard. Following this, he co-owned a business called Traf-O-Data, which turned out to be a real failure. Was he disheartened? No, he changed his tactics and put his skills to good use and became the pioneer of the famous software company Microsoft.

Similarly, Steve Jobs, another American business tycoon and the co-founder of Apple, got fired from Apple. He realized that his passion for work exceeded the disappointment of failure. After his brief stints at NeXT and Pixar, Jobs made his way back into Apple as the CEO. All he did was change his approach. He trusted his abilities, and he was determined.

So, you see, perseverance and acceptance of failure, along with faith, goes a long way.

“Stick around. Don’t lose your heart, just keep going, keep at it.” – Mark Ruffalo

How to Train Ourselves so that We Develop These Qualities? 

It seems all easy in words. But, how do we actually become determined and strive to keep on practising or go for broke? As it turns out, it starts with having faith in what you are doing and not having any doubt in your capabilities. True, you must hone your skills, but you must believe that ‘you can do it.’

Our mind is an incredibly powerful tool. You cannot even fathom what it represents. If you train your mind to be positive, you will become more resolute. We often see that when we are faced with trouble, we tend to elude the situation. In cases like this, faith is the tool that will help us replenish the lost spirit.

So, you must practice meditation to instil a sense of positivity in yourself. It will help you shed your inhibitions. You will find that you are making bold decisions, and you are confident about them.

As you can see, the focused power of faith breeds abundance. Thus, when we focus on life, we get more out of it. If we focus on failing, we will fail eventually. At the end of the day, it all boils down to how you think. If you remain positive and maintain the ‘keep going’ attitude, you will triumph no matter how hard your obstacles are. Hopefully, you will write your success story someday.

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.
