The 3 Step Process to Ultimate Victory

The rain fell heavily from nowhere as we were driving back home from a business meeting. My husband was driving and before we knew it, it grew dark, started hailing, and we couldn’t see the way. We were in the middle of nowhere and stopping in the middle of the heavy rain didn’t sound like a wise idea because the hailstorm had potential to damage the wind screen. 

Inside me there was fear that we would not get home. My Husband had to be strong for the both of us. It took us an hour to drive where it normally would’ve taken a few minutes if the road was clear. 

Many people take longer to achieve their dreams because they lack clarity. When one knows what they want, it’s also easy to set goals. However, there are reasons why many people do not set goals to achieve their dreams, including:

  • They do not know what their dream is. They cannot differentiate between a wish, fantasy or a dream.
  • They do not know how to set goals.
  • They are not self-disciplined to follow through.
  • Fear of failure
  • Not being accountable to anyone e.g a coach 

When the rain stopped, I recall how relieved my husband and I felt as we increased speed to cover up the delay we had experienced earlier. Just like the road being clear, clear goals help increase your confidence as you develop competence and boost your motivation to pursue your dream. 

“Have goals so big, your problems pale in comparison.” – Grant Cardone

Successful people know what they want and focus on achieving it. The starting point is to determine what you want and ask yourself if you’re willing to pay the price. Driving through the hail storm was risky but we were determined to get to our destination so we did not focus on the hindrance. Some of the ways one can perceive their dream as stated in my book, ‘The dream!” are:

  • Your childhood desire in your heart.
  • Motivation from watching successful people 
  • Motivation by a cause e.g. desire to impact lives
  • God given or inspired dream 
  • Dream inspired by association
  • Dream inspired from an experience or overcoming a challenge.

There are questions one could also ask themselves on top of the above to seek clarity of their dream.

  1. What do you really want to be in 50 years from now?
  2. What do you want to have 50 years from now?
  3. What do you want to do 50 years from now?
  4. What are the activities that give you the greatest sense of meaning?
  5. What do you think about most of the time?
  6. What do you talk about most of the time?
  7. What do you want?
  8. What don’t you want?

To perceive your dream is to grasp the who, what, where, and how-to. Sometimes, all you will see is just a glimpse of the end of the vision; and everything unfolds as you walk the journey. 

When you start walking, you do not have to have the full picture of how you will get there. More often than not, the “how” unfolds as you walk the journey. Do not let the storms of life distract you from dreaming. As long as you are clear on the dream and determined to keep driving through the storm, eventually it will be clear and you will achieve much more than you ever thought. When you are clear on your dream, it is just the beginning of the journey. When you are determined to be successful after clarity follows action.

What action are you going to take after reading this article?

  • Write goals down
  • Identify the obstacles in your way
  • Determine the skills and knowledge you require to achieve the goals
  • Determine the people whose help you will need
  • Determine how much you will need to finance your dream 
  • Determine how you will finance the dream 

Successful people write their goals down and follow through systematically. Writing the dreams down can be hard at first but if you start and are consistent, it will become a habit. People who write their goals down achieve much more because it helps them to visualize their goals. Those who write down their goals on how to achieve the dream and follow through systematically will gradually move from frustration to fulfilment and underachievement to achieving great dreams.

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.
