Elon Musk has a great saying:

“Stop being patient and start asking yourself, ‘how do I accomplish my 10 year plan in 6 months?’ You will probably fail but you will be a lot further ahead of the person who simply accepted it was going to take 10 years.”

Musk was right. You don’t have to play it safe and be like everyone else. What if you could achieve your goals in just 90 days? What if you could change your life in just 90 days? Are you going to do it?

Well, in this article, I’m going to share with you 5 ultimate steps on how you can achieve your goals in just 90 days…

1. Focus on just ONE goal

If you want to create amazing results and create breakthroughs in just 90 days, you cannot afford to scatter your energy and focus. You must focus on just ONE goal.

The key is to concentrate your energy, time, and effort on working on the one goal that will make the most impact on your life.

Hence, the first step you should do is to ask yourself, “What is the one goal that if I achieved, everything in my life will change?”

And your mission then is to focus monomaniacally on accomplishing this one goal in just 90 days.

That’s right, just one goal. Not two or three.

Think about it, one completed project has a more powerful impact on your life than 10 uncompleted projects, isn’t it?

If you want to build an internet business, you don’t have to start with 10 websites or 10 ideas. You just need to focus on one. Create one website, and focus on building and growing it.

The same goes for writing a book. You don’t have to start with writing 5 books. Just focus on getting one book done. A completed book has the power to change lives more than 5 half-done books.

So, what is the one goal that you want to achieve that will greatly improve your life?

2. Compress your goals into 90 days

Next, you want to compress your goals into just 90 days. It doesn’t matter if it is a yearly goal or a 3-year goal, the key is to make it in just 90 days.

That’s right, 90 days. It is going to be challenging, but it will be fun and well worth it.

Instead of setting a yearly goal to build a YouTube channel with 10,000 subscribers, aim to do it in 90 days.

Rather than writing a book in a year, get it done in 90 days.

You see, one of the most common reasons people fail to achieve their goals is that they give themselves too much time and flexibility for the goal.

Don’t set a yearly goal. Set a 90 day goal. Why? Because too many things can happen in a year. It is difficult to predict and plan for what will happen a year from now than 3 months from now.

Plus, when a goal is too far away, it lacks urgency.

Think about it, if you want to get back in shape and you have one whole year to do it, what will you do? You procrastinate.

If you miss your milestone for January, you will tell yourself it is okay because there are still 11 more months to go.

And this is why 90% of people who set New Year’s resolutions fail to accomplish them. This is why annual goals or annualize thinking is unproductive.

Therefore, compress your goal and commit to achieving it in just 90 days.

3. Take action first thing in the morning

Next, you want to take massive action first thing in the morning. You want to make it your ultimate mission to work on the goal the first thing upon waking up.

Why? The reason is simple – if it has to happen, it has to be the first thing in the morning.

As you progress into the day, there will be a lot of distractions. Your kids will interrupt you. Your colleagues will call you. Your friends will buzz on social media. There are emails you need to reply to. You will feel hungry and exhausted.

This is why Robin Sharma, the best-selling author of The 5 AM Club suggests his readers get up at 5 AM to work on their most important goals.

You are fresh early in the morning. There are no distractions and the rest of the world is still sleeping. And this is the best time to work on your most important goal. And this will give you an unfair advantage over others.

Do you know that extraordinary people like Kobe Bryant got up at 5 AM to train in the gym? Apple CEO Tim Cook was reported to wake up at 3:45 every morning to work. And Xerox CEO Ursula Burns rises at 5:15 to exercise and reply to emails.

Thus, get up early to work on your magnum opus.

4. Commit to at least 90 minutes of action every day

Successful people are successful because they are willing to do what most people are not willing to do. If you want to achieve your goal, you must commit to taking action, every day.

Both successful and unsuccessful people have goals and dreams. What separates them then is not goals or dreams or aspirations, but action. Successful people are action-takers.

Unsuccessful people, on the other hand, only dream about what they want, but they don’t take action.

So, commit to taking at least 90 minutes of action to make progress toward your goal every morning. If you don’t have time or you think you are too busy, then wake up early to do it.

Challenge yourself to get up at 5 AM for the next 90 days, and then work on your goal for at least 90 minutes every day.

If you can do this for just 90 days, trust me, you will make so much progress and your life will never be the same again after 3 months.

5. Track, measure, and pivot

And finally, you must track and measure your progress, and most importantly, you must pivot according to the feedback.

In other words, you must measure your success every week and then adjust according to the feedback you receive.

There will be problems, and obstacles, and you will make mistakes. And this is why you must track your progress to know what is working and what is not. Change what is not working, improve your strategy, and do more of what is working.

That’s how success is created. Success is created by design, not by accidents.


And these are the 5 ultimate steps to help you achieve any goals you want in just 90 days. When you focus on accomplishing one goal and commit to taking massive action in 90 days, you will make so much more progress than most people.

If you challenge yourself to follow the principles you learned in this article, you can change your life and create massive results all in 90 days.

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.
