Have you ever been stuck on stagnant when it comes to achieving a goal? You start strong and dream of finishing strong. You get revved up and begin the race to achieve your next big accomplishment. Everything’s going great then somewhere in the middle or perhaps even shortly after beginning, things go south faster than you can say “gentlemen start your engines.”

There are as many different goals as there are countless numbers of people trying to achieve them. Sadly, only a few will make it to the finish line. What makes the difference between those that do and those that don’t might surprise you. Just stay with me and I will show you how to hit pay dirt when it comes to achieving goal success. 

It doesn’t matter if you want to lose weight, get a better job, rebuild your life, rebuild your credit, publish a book, or start a new business. Our goals may all be different and look different. We all have the same objective no matter the goal. That objective is to always get results. Goals without results are simply a source of frustration and a set up to lead you to a setback.

There are two main things successful achievers understand and do consistently well. Below are two golden rules that will have you digging up goal success like a pro:  

1. Finding The Landmines Before You Step On Them

The first golden rule may seem so basic that you may wonder why I even bothered bringing it up; However, you would be surprised at just how many people miss this crucial first step and miss the mark of achieving their goal. Sometimes we just need to be reminded how important this step is.

Over my many years as a nurse, I have lost count of the many patients and people I have worked with on achieving various goals. The goals ranged from seeking better health, better dietary or disease management, helping them to adjust to a change in their declining health status or helping survivors of domestic violence rebuild their lives.

The number one reason that held most of them back was not that they lacked a desire for change or even a lack of ability. Many of them had both the desire and the ability to change their situation but there was one big thing that stood in the way of what they wanted.

The one thing that held them back the most was happening on a subconscious level. Brewing just beneath the surface was a belief that they didn’t deserve good health or whatever it was that we were working towards. They held a belief within, that something or someone else was more important than taking care of themselves. This in turn signaled messaging to the brain that they were not important enough. Without question, this belief torpedoed any chance they ever had of achieving what many of them truly wanted and desperately needed.

Yet, because they believed they weren’t important enough or deserved it enough, the battle had already been lost before the fight even began. One of the most damaging things we can ever do to ourselves when we are setting our goals is to allow ourselves to believe that we don’t deserve success. Most of the time this happens on a subconscious level without us even realizing it.

Taking a little time out to self-reflect and examine if you have any self- limiting and self-destructive beliefs before you attempt your goal digging will go a long way in helping you to dig up the prize. It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have, how much money you spend on career advancement seminars, or how much you invest in your outer image. If you secretly don’t believe you deserve success, you will sabotage every effort to achieve it because you don’t believe you deserve it. If you have any lingering self-destructive beliefs. Identify them, deal with them, beat them and carry on!

“No matter how qualified or deserving we are, we will never reach a better life until we can imagine it for ourselves and allow ourselves to have it.” – Richard Bach

2. Can Someone Pass Me My Success….Please?

The second, and certainly not the least important golden rule is that successful achievers do not wait for permission to achieve. Successful goal achievers do not seek anyone’s approval or permission to succeed. If I’m brutally and somewhat painfully honest, in my younger days in the beginning of my career, I was guilty of feeling like I needed permission from others to succeed.

When I look back on my younger self, I realized how counterproductive, self destructive, and self defeating that really was. I wasted so much of my time treading lightly in the fear of intimidating someone or being seen as different than, I missed out on enormous opportunities.

By seeking or worse needing permission or approval from others to be successful is like handing the keys to your happiness and well-being over to someone else and hoping things turn out okay. The people who are in your life and there to support you will be happy you are succeeding. The only problem they will have is wondering what the heck took you so long!

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.

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…)
