Talk Right!

Do your words and results mismatch? You have been talking and talking great things but they never fruition? Have you been asking yourself, again and again, why am I having realities that don’t align with my dreams? Are you having manifestations that you don’t like? If you have answered yes to one of these questions, could it be because you don’t believe in your words? Could it be because you are careless in your talk? Well, in Episode 3- Talk Right, I’ll give you the insights and tips you need to make it right.

Let me first give you a quick background about the place of words. You might already be aware of the different arguments about whether creations within the universe came to existence through evolution or a one-time dramatic manner. I’ll not take you there. However, one thing seems to bring all the parties together. This life-sustaining universe came to existence within a few seconds. Many in this field agree that the universe didn’t come through an evolutionary process. It was a dramatic short span occurrence of seconds, maybe minutes. Their difference is who did it. While some believe that God spoke the universe into existence others believe that there was a big bang though they don’t acknowledge nor propose who caused the big bang.

Today in this episode, my goal is neither to broker the two parties nor to bring any fresh argument concerning how the universe came to reality and who did it. I mentioned this ongoing two schools of thought to let you know that I fall under the group that believes the universe came to existence through a spoken word from God. I wasn’t there and thus cannot prove it. However, it makes no sense to me how such a dramatic display of power within seconds and minutes could have been done other than talk from a divine being.

Think about this. You are a result of a 9-month pregnancy, an evolutionary mechanism. If you want to get an apple, wheat, what have you, you must follow an evolutionary approach that involves sowing, fertilizing, watering, and finally harvesting. If you would like to build just a tower, you know the drill. On the other hand, how many years do you think it takes to bring forth the universe (the stars, planets, and the physical laws that govern these gigantic creations)? I cannot think of a mechanism that brought first one start, then the next, and one planet, and the next, and finally once all were in place, this process did put in place physical laws to govern the co-existence of these gigantic creations. Anyways, I’m trying to let you know how I think and what I believe. Other than that, you don’t need to agree with me. You are entitled to have your own hypothesis. Don’t forget. We all have hypotheses; no own could offer proof in this regard…

Let’s set aside the big stuff like how the universe came to existence in the first place. Too abstract and far removed, at least for many. However, whether you believe the way I do or not when it comes to the place of words in this universe, my hope in this episode is to show you the effects of words against humans and even other creations like water and plants. Based on two simple experiments, I showed how the way the experimenters where talking impacted the final outcomes of the experiments. To learn more about these tryouts, check out Episode 3- Talk Right!

Before we proceed, I have a couple of disclaimers:

  1. Careless talks won’t bring any intended results– good or bad. Talks backed by faith and those that could invoke strong emotions (negative or positive) have consequences. There are cheap and weak talks. They are inconsequential.
  2. Talking is just one weapon to get the results you want. You need to back up your words with actions. By the way, Episode 4, provides more insights, and tips about the power of deeds. In the meantime, just know that the stronger and consistent the actions, the greater the results.

Let me quickly answer this question, which might already cross your mind. If our talks have such power, why then many speak to harvest negative results contrary to their wish and what they are saying?

  1. It is our second nature. Many of us have been conditioned to speak negatively since childhood. The people around us have been training us, may not be deliberately, to focus on what is wrong and talk about these to death.
  2. It takes faith, commitment, and discipline to speak positively. Very few discipline themselves to talk positively. It takes energy and continual efforts, especially in the face of disappointments and setbacks, to speak positively and optimistically.
  3. It is expected of us to fit in. Speaking negatively gives us the license to fit in. In many circles, you are expected to lower your expectations and talk ‘modestly’. Many underdogs, in the name of humility, depreciate their values and talk carelessly about who they are and their potential. Humility is key to leadership. You shouldn’t brag and inflate yourself and what you can do. However, it isn’t humility to tarnish yourself. You can be humble and at the same time assertive of yourself and your potential. They aren’t mutually exclusive.

Remember these:

  • If you believe in it, talk about it. If you are hesitating, your faith is corrupted. The proof that you have faith is speaking about the things you want to manifest or go away.
  • If you don’t talk about it, know that you most probably won’t see it. Your words have creative power. Sow your words, and harvest your results. There is no short cut.
  • What you possess today were what you talked about yesterday. If you haven’t yet achieved and secured what you want, begin talking right to get it tomorrow. Talk Right- Sow Right, in order to Harvest Right in the end.
  • What you don’t talk about, you won’t defeat. The giants in your life, not necessarily humans, don’t respond to sheepishness. They don’t bow out of your life through begging and lowering your expectations. Speak to your mountain (giant), and it becomes a dwarf. It dissipates at the end of the day.

If you like what you have read so far, I encourage you to watch Episode 3- Talk Right!. In this episode, I pointed out how what we say matters, determine the results we get, and the destiny we inherit at the end of the day. I also shared two powerful experiments that show the power of words. I also shared my own experience of how I have been watching my mouth, filter what I say, and more.

Serving Based on Your Uniqueness

Have you been struggling to stand out? Have you wondered why some people and companies are so competitive and always at the top? Are you wondering how you may excel in what you do?

If you said yes to one of these questions, you need to read this blog and watch the corresponding episode. Episode 2 is for you. As an underdog, you cannot afford to be like everybody else. You must differentiate yourself from the crowd. When you do that you remain relevant wherever you go and wherever you serve.

I still remember the old days where I was clueless about my unique propositions. I was passionate, and out there in the open trying to make an impact. I was shooting in all directions and missing every single time. At one point, frustration set in and I sat down to get answers. These were the questions I was asking:

  1. Why am I in the same place too long?
  2. What am I missing to go to the next level?
  3. Why is too much work to get little results?
  4. And other similar questions?

I’m glad to report to you that the answers to these questions led me to discover my unique edge. All of a sudden, I began to:

  1. Realize that I’ve a unique purpose,
  2. Appreciate my disappointments and disadvantages, and
  3. Embrace the things that made me ashamed. I decided to turn these scars and missteps into my won unique advantage to serve others in unique ways.

Before we proceed, I want you to stop and answer these questions:

  1. What is your unique purpose? In other words, what is your distinctive mission in life? I’ll come back again on this theme to produce a couple of episodes. For now, I want you to think about this: What is that one thing unless you commit to it, you cannot have peace and rest? What is that one assignment you feel like no one but you will do it? What is that one mission if you accomplish it during your life time, you don’t mind dying the next day? For more, read Part 1 of my book ‘The Highest Level of Greatness: Purpose-Oriented, Vision-centered, and Values-driven greatness. Expect also a book coming out this year specifically designed to empower you to discover, pursue, and fulfill your unique purpose. Believe me, if you haven’t yet when you discover your assignment in life, it immediately decorates your life; it distinguishes you. It gives you a competitive edge.
  2. Do you have unique gifting or talent? Many people succeeded because of finding, nurturing, and employing their unique talent and/or gifting. I don’t have any. If you have one, that could give you a competitive edge to excel and lead a great life.
  3. What are some of your unique experiences, disappointments, missteps, and failures? Don’t tell me that you don’t know your unique purpose, and you don’t have unique talent or gifting. Okay, got it. But, don’t tell me that you never stumbled, you mastered every aspect of your life, and never miss stepped? You can use these unique happenings to serve others. You have learned some insights, developed wisdom as you made the mistakes and came out of the trouble you were in or, at least, you have now some tips that may help others who find in the same spot you were to avoid your mistakes, learn from your experience, and overcome the challenges they are facing.  

If you have not yet, pick your unique lane. It is not crowded and allows you to excel. As far as you are serving your community, the world around you, your clients, and/or customers based on your unique path, you flourish and tap into your unlimited potential.

If you like what you have read so far, I encourage you to watch Episode 2 of Dr. AZ Show. In this episode, I pointed out how successful people and companies carved their own unique brand to remain competitive even in bad times. I also shared 3 potential areas where you could find your uniqueness. I also shared my own experience of how I have been attempting to serve based on my uniqueness.

If you have not checked it out, in the previous episode, I talked about the importance of becoming a potential conscious. However, understanding that you have great potential is the foundation. Every human being has almost the same potential as you do have. That is not your unique proposition to the world. The knowledge of your potential is key to anything meaningful you would do going forward. Nonetheless, at the end of the day, you need to know your uniqueness.

The underdogs I studied were very clear about their unique edge. They picked their lane. Hundreds, thousands, and in some cases millions followed them because they were on their unique path without being duplicates. They flew at a wavelength no one had flown.

If you don’t pick your lane and tap into what makes you unique, it is an uphill battle for you as an underdog. You cannot shine on a road crowded by others who have better resources, connections, and portfolios. Your uniqueness is your competitive advantage.

Think about some of the successful startups, which were underdogs when they began their journey. The ones that succeeded and outsmarted their competitors were those that had unique propositions. They didn’t have the money and platform, to begin with. Think about the uniqueness Apple brought to defeat the giant IBM? Think about Singapore, a tiny city-state. They were underdogs in their respective fields. But, they found their uniqueness that made them competitive and today Apple is one of the most successful corporations in the world while Singapore has the highest personal GDP in the world.

What do you have as an underdog that positions you to shine? All underdogs who transformed themselves into greats had weapons that disarmed their goliaths. What is your unique ‘weapon’ that sets you apart?

Potential Conscious

Underdogs have a messed up past and maybe present. Otherwise, they won’t qualify as underdogs. Unfortunately, many underdogs preoccupy themselves with what they don’t have and what is missing in the now. Few underdogs focus on their potential, who they can become, and where they are heading. Such underdogs, when they interact with themselves in their mind and with other people, they base the conversation on not the realities but their potential. 

Huge difference! If you allow the small self-critic voice in you or wrong people who don’t genuinely love and care about you, they may want to interact with you based on who you were & what you have done- mainly your mistakes and missteps. Refuse to participate! 

Regardless of where you were and what you have done both good and bad, this is a clean new chance you got this year. Because of your limitless potential, you aren’t bound to your past. You can rewrite your past, shape today and the future if you believe in the greatness seed that dwells in you. In the New Year, be alert and superconscious as you interact with yourself and others. It should be based on who you CAN BECOME and where you are heading, not based on the ‘beating’ you took the previous day, week, month, year, or decade. 

However, I understand that it isn’t easy to look at yourself on the other side of the mirror every day knowing that you were ‘beaten’ badly or ‘knocked out’ the previous day and/or had many misfortunes, missteps, and disappointments last month or year, and you are now up for another fight where you aren’t sure of the outcome yet. Likewise, it is frustrating if you look at the guy on the other side of the mirror who doesn’t have yet the head start he/she needs to enter into that business, profession, or competition. 

But, the underdogs who believe in themselves and the potential they carry, they acknowledge the uphill battle they face and recognize the scars they retained in the past. However, they will tell you also that they’re happy that they are still standing and alive after that bad beating, knockout, and disappointments. 

What makes them special? They stand in front of the mirror every day leaping and licking their wounds but refuse to complain, let alone quit. They look at a bruised underdog on the other side of the mirror but at the same time, they don’t see a beaten-down person who is finished but someone who will win in the end. They stand there thankful because they have another fighting chance, another day to rewrite their past defeats and shape their today and future. It is a choice, and we all should choose like these underdogs.

Refuse to settle for less than your true potential, which awaits you to unchain it! Your future is glorious! And, it can begin this year, no need to wait years to manifest your greatness. Start releasing your potential one-day at a time. 

Those underdogs who vowed to tap into their potential always have a better future. They don’t cut short themselves by presenting themselves, negotiating, and dealing based on their past. Your best days are still ahead. You have untapped potential. Don’t give up too soon, lower the bar, fold your tent, and act like you are tired or retired. New Year, New & better You!!!

Watch this episode where I shared some insightful analogies and simple but powerful steps you can take to remain focused on your potential. As a typical underdog, I also shared my own stories about how I dealt with the small self-critic voice within, disappointments, belittling, and so on.

Once you watched it, share your thoughts, subscribe not to miss future episodes, share it with those who may benefit from it, especially those who are experiencing temporal defeats and disappointments. Remain connected on social media as I’m going to continue to post multiple times per day the whole week.

1 New Year Strategic Approach Successful People Use

As we approach the New Year, we all have some approaches that we have been using to get prepared for the New Year. Many of us strategize, plan, prioritize what we’re going to do in the New Year. In this video clip, I’m sharing with you one New Year strategic approach successful people use: Assigning a theme for the New Year. I adopted this approach for years and have seen some amazing results and I would like you to try it.

Remember, we are underdogs. Unlike others, we don’t have the luxury to do things on the go without pre-planning. We have limited finance, few connections, and so on. We have to prioritize where we would like to spend our limited resources. We need to be extraordinarily strategic.

I know some of you hate to sit down and spend a lot of time to strategize and plan. This is not your preference nor fun. However, I warn you that, as an underdog, you cannot excel and attain your unique greatness without developing this habit. Start it small scale, read, attend seminars, get coaching, but by all means, develop this soft skill.

In this video clip, however, my focus wasn’t on how to strategize, prioritize, and plan. I wrote about these themes on my books and also I do facilitate workshops on time and energy management and strategic planning, maybe I’ll record a video on this in the future. For today, I am focusing on how to recognize one area that makes or breaks your success next year, and how to zoom in and give it your priority and attention, which in turn brings extraordinary results.

I first saw successful people using it. Some pronounced the theme of their next year while others did it quietly. In both cases, I watched them giving that theme prime attention, their messages, products, and services were aligned alongside the theme.

Then, I decided to use this strategic approach in my own life. I shared in the video what my theme was 7 or 6 years ago, and also my next year’s theme.

Watch this video in its entirety. If you find it helpful share with the people you know who may benefit from this single approach that can bring a magnificent turnaround in their life, profession, business, and more.
