Begin your Journey from Underdog to Topdog

The world is brutal, unfair, challenging & messy, especially for underdogs such as blacks, women, immigrants, and people with disabilities. A long time ago, regardless of being a typical underdog myself born in one of the poorest villages in Ethiopia, I made a decision to never behave & act like an underdog thinking & feeling inferior, inadequate, and victim. Once I made that choice, slowly but surely, I won myself toward my true self, then I vowed to play my fair share to empower other underdogs using my shows, books, organizations, and other platforms.

But, I quickly realized that I’m not a cheerleader for all underdogs. I found out that only those who are willing to take personal responsibilities; those who don’t dwell in victimhood mentality; who believe that they have what it takes to become the best in the area of their passion, one of the topdogs in their industry; and those who aspire to become world-class leaders tend to be attracted toward me while others began to disassociate and stay away. No hard feeling against the decisions of the latter 🙂 I still sympathize & emphasize those underdogs who rather decided, consciously or unconsciously, to spend their energy, focus & time in the past, complain about how badly they were treated, and how the world is unfair against them. I simply accepted that I’m not the right person to help those who plan to stay in this mood forever.

My commitment is to those who refuse to settle underdog for the rest of their lives. For those bold & committed underdogs, I vowed to remain their cheerleader to inspire, equip, & empower them to believe in themselves and bring out their best. For those who determined to work on their mentality, competencies & character to transform their lives, organizations & communities from underdog to topdog.

If you’re such an underdog, stay connected on social media and also continue to read my regular blogs, watch the empowering video clips and interviews I conduct with topdogs to learn from their experience on how they worked on their mindset, skills, and personality, and character to transform their lives from underdog to topdog. You too can be like them in your own unique ways…

You have what it takes. You deserve it! You live once in this world and it is unfair for your true self, your family, your kids, and the next-generation, if you die without tapping into your full potential and giving the world your best based on your strengths, passion, gifting, and talents. You don’t need to reinvent the wheel. You can learn from the experience of those underdogs turned topdogs, customize it to your objective conditions to transform your life, then your organization, and even your community from underdog to topdog! I believe in you. I’m here to support you…

Grow your soul and fulfill her assignment

Many people don’t recognize the personalities that reside in them. They just think that they are their bodies. Such individuals don’t aspire much. They look at themselves and find so many weaknesses and limitations, and as a result, they limit themselves with the limitations of their phsyical body.

I’d like to use the leader of all leaders, Jesus. He was aware of His spiritness. He didn’t identify with His physical body nor His ego. He recognized His Soul and aligned His body and personality along with the will of His Soul.

Each one of us has a soul. Our soul craves to grow and be like Jesus’s Soul when she finishes her journey on earth. How many of us are aware of that? How many of us liberated our souls from our ego?

The ego hides in the mind (in the neocortex, more specifically in the frontal lobe) and thinks everything is about him/her 🙂 The ego does only recognize the body, that is it! It acts like he/she is his/her own god. Selfish, fearful, and temporal, and shortsighted, and more.

The toughest question many may never ask is whether we are heading toward fulfilling our soul’s assignment and be ready to pray like Jesus in the end or not. At the end of His ministry, Jesus prayed to the Father asking God to restore Him to the former glory He had with the Father as He finished His Soul’s assignment successfully and glorified the Father on earth.

Jesus is our spiritual example. He left for us the path of fulfillment we should follow. Like He did, we should discover our unique assignment for which our soul was released from eternity to time to finish, and in the end, glorify the Father before she returns to her former glory.

As apostle Paul said, we (our soul, not our body) were with Him before the foundation of the world. We were in eternity and will return to eternity when we are done. The question for each one of us is whether we have discovered the purpose and assignment of our soul. Whether we are committed to pursuing it until our soul learns obedience, love, forgive, serve, and in the process become one with God and glorify Him on earth while she is away from the headquarter. Whether we are heading in the direction where ultimately we may be able to pray the same prayer Jesus prayed just before completing His assignment or not. If you haven’t yet, begin this greatest journey NOW!

Begin your greatness journey NOW

The fact that you joined this universe and walking on this planet qualifies you to manifest the greatness of your Source, God- the ultimate measure of greatness! You’re His image. You are designed to be great at what you do.

What is required from you is doing your part, which is not that hard though not simple. The first key step is to know who you truly are. I’m not talking about knowing your physical body and its features or the qualifications that you earned or your ancestral linage. Your true self, which is eternal and spirit.

Then, find your purpose- the reason why you’re here; see the end from the beginning- vision, and lead a life that honors and promotes your mission, and protect your vision. Don’t go out every day to just get by and survive. Don’t also just be restless to be great in anyhow.

Find the competitive advantage that uniquely differentiates you from others and thread upon your own distinct path. And my 4th book, ‘The Highest Level of Greatness’, can help you begin, if you’ve not yet, the eternally rewarding journey toward your highest level of greatness. Let me share with you an excerpt from the book:

“…Regardless of their unique purpose and destiny, I figured out that the great ones walked on the same path. There were some important steps they all took. Since ancient times, those who achieved undeniable greatness followed the same pattern… You too can follow these the same steps to release your greatness to the fullest. You don’t need to start from scratch. You just need to follow the footsteps of the great ones before you. Here is the advice of one of the great motivational speakers, Les Brown: “If you try to climb the mountain of success by yourself, you’re probably not going to make it. Even if you do, it’ll be much harder than it needs to be.” You don’t need to reinvent the wheel…”
