The Art Of Platforming – Using One Achievement To Reach Another



Rocky Running Up The Steps

You are probably well aware of your best bowling score, dance move, marathon time, or pick-up line; however, you should know something about the call for perseverance, practice, patience, and vision as well. Those attributes helped you to achieve whatever you wanted to accomplish.

However, in order to achieve what we dream of, we must use one achievement to reach another.

How To Platform Your Way To Success

There are a number of essentials at work. Looking back at past achievements to decipher ways to reach new ones gives us the confidence to go forward and attain our next objective. As we reach one plateau after another, the will becomes stronger and our goals become more realizable. For example, successful leaders have frequently built a successful career by taking their achievements from their previous company and building on them in another.

In fact, climbing up the ladder or achievement building is quite common. Especially when building a company or individual brand. For example, famous rapper 50cent is a perfect example of using one achievement to reach another. He personifies the concept of starting from nothing and using each of his experiences as a stepping-stone to become a winner. Not only materially but in the heart as well.


1. Using Achievement Successfully

An individual coming from nothing and building an empire is exactly how building upon achievements work. Of course, you must have the vision and the will to accomplish. In addition, you don’t have to build an empire either. Building upon achievements can be as simple as starting out in a company and taking that experience to another company or within the same company.

The days when the CEO of a company started off in the mailroom seems to be long gone. However, those successes are what “achievement building” is all about. A fresh kid out of college, or in times gone by, only out of high school, took a job in a large company, perhaps being a “gofer” as they were called back in the day. They worked diligently and in two years, they are promoted to an office job. After a few more years, the company puts them in a special training class and the individual is promoted to assistant manager. After a few years of being an assistant manager, he/she is promoted to director and the achievement building continues until they reach CEO. However, you must have a vision of where you want to go or you will never get there.

Successful leaders frequently built a rewarding career by taking their achievements from one corporation and building on them in another. Either by a decision on their own, or from being recruited, these leaders frequently carry learning and perceptiveness from one experience and use it for another, with fantastic results.


2. Achievement and Outlook

Studies show that there are two varying kinds of achievement-associated attitudes. They are ego-involvement and task-involvement. Task-involvement is the stimulated phase where a person’s chief objective is to obtain proficiency and understanding. Ego-involvement is mainly to exhibit advanced abilities. One example of a pursuit where an individual endeavors to attain mastery and display advanced ability is when learning a skill. Nonetheless, an individual’s environment and surroundings can influence the triumph of achieving an aspiration at anytime.

Achievement can take various structures. It can be a mundane act such as getting the laundry done that’s been sitting for ages, finishing a puzzle, starting and finishing a diet, or beginning a new career. In addition, purpose shows that achievement is actually capricious and means something different to each individual. What may be an important achievement for one individual is a piece of cake to another. On the whole, achievement is whatever gives a person a sense of self-respect in a personal action or attained knowledge, regardless of its simplicity.

It is whatever makes an individual feel noble and whatever solidifies their competence to themselves. In addition, each gain builds confidence and motivates the individual to build on that confidence. Achieving is about having your desires satisfied, reinforcing your confidence, and boosting your sense of worth. In fact, the need to achieve is innate in each of us. Whether we take advantage of it is another story. Lack of confidence, negative thoughts, and a feeling of unworthiness creates a void. This void creates a lack of initiative and cannot be filled until the individual takes action. Afterwards, a well-rounded person is the result. One who feels worthy of achievement.

Consistent failure to achieve what we want thwarts confidence, making a person feel inadequate. It sets us up for failure and questions the significance of what we are doing. Therefore, while working on our achievements, and even before, we must convince ourselves that our efforts are worthwhile, that we are worthy of success.

3. Achievement and Faith

While on the road to achievement things may not always go as planned. If we feel the desire to “prove ourselves,” and things do not go as planned, this may lead many individuals to throw in the towel. Having an open mind is vital. As one great philosopher stated “everything may look like its going wrong, and it’s going right.” Achievement is built on faith in our abilities. Therefore, in order to build on one achievement after another, we must also build our faith.

In fact, what many call a “lack of confidence” is really a “lack of faith.” Continuously looking over our shoulders to see what the next person is doing to validate our worthiness, is a prerequisite to doubt our abilities to achieve what we set out to do. Living in the “now” is a perfect remedy for doubt and lack of confidence, and many times, it is our habit of “looking too far in the future,” that prevents us from working on what we can achieve “right now.”


4. Creating Your Own Opportunities Through Achievement

It is up to each person to develop their potential and create their own opportunities. Taking the initiative to “jump and catch our wings on the way down,” is a scary thought. However, that’s pretty much how it goes. The step forward is the leap into the unknown. As one great thinker said:

“boldness has magic in it.”

However, we should not confuse boldness with foolishness. A bold person has taken considerable thought into their next move. Even with a bit of doubt, they are willing to take the risk. A fool gives no forethought to their actions. They repeatedly repeat the same action expecting a different result each time. A lemon pie will not turn into a pumpkin pie, unless you change the ingredients.

Regardless of a person’s qualifications, a feeling of inadequacy to achieve can wipe out confidence and impede potential. By constantly looking to others to create our opportunities for success we undermine our part in its fruition. Many people are good at creating success for others; however, this scheme falls short when it comes time to create that success for themselves.


5. Achieving Your Best

By putting their best foot forward, a person can achieve the best out of life.

First of all, becoming a better individual allows you to take hold of your new experiences and abilities; therefore, manifesting a more harmonious life. Consider how your life is different than it was five years ago.

Have you achieved what you set out to do? Does your life have more clarity, perspective and depth than yesterday?

What may have been a straightforward day-to-day occurrence previously, has more importance to the new you today. In other words, looking back with wisdom, you see why certain things happened the way they did. If you can do this, it is an indication of true growth and achievement.

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.
