FOCUS On Your “Genius Zone”
Do you spend lots of time trying to overcome your weaknesses? It’s time to “manage” your weaknesses, and invest the majority of your time and efforts on doubling down on your unique gifts, the pathway to what I call your “Genius Zone”!
I realize this might fly in the face of what you have been taught by people in your life.

To demonstrate, let’s consider the work of Napoleon Hill. He is widely known as one of the pioneers in the field of personal development, and his famous book called “Think & Grow Rich” emphasizes the importance of applying laser focus to any goal you wish to achieve. Countless thought-leaders and multimillion-dollar entrepreneurs swear by the strategies explained in Hill’s book. These people all talk about how they benefitted from what Hill called “Definiteness of Purpose,” which is “the habit of focusing your actions and thoughts on one high and desirable goal in life.”Read More
It’s achieving freedom from the 7 Deadly Shackles and becoming your greatest “SELF.”
The 7 Deadly Shackles are the enemies that rob us of our inner happiness and fulfillment, and prevent us from reaching our greatest potential.
This certainly has been the case for me on my journey…
Let me introduce you to the 7 Deadly Shackles, the enemies that I’ve declared all out war against in my life:
Take a moment to ponder this list for your self and ask the question. Am I completely FREE?
When I took a personal inventory of this list back in 2007, I realized that although I’d been super successful at making money… and at accumulating lots of titles, and material things that mainstream society says makes you Wealthy…Read More
