How to Make the Shift to Extraordinary Greatness

This is Day Thirty in the 30 Days of Reinvention Video Series [#30DaysReinvention].

Form a pathway to journey on and do extraordinary things.

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Hey, it’s Rand,

Over the last 30 days, I’ve provided you with the mindset and tools to kickstart your journey of reinventing yourself.

I encourage you to build on this knowledge base and create your own fierce practice.

Exactly how fierce you are, and how much of a reinvention you undertake depends entirely on you

Will you be fierce?

Will you be fiercer?

Will you be your fiercest self?

The intensity level you choose comes from a place deep inside you: it comes from a place of truth; a place of ultimate authenticity; and a place where you are totally present in all that you do and think.

Being fierce is not about smashing it, owning it or any other form of faux aggression.

There is no ferocity in being fierce only truth.

You should consciously seek and say the truth; you should work on and know your weaknesses; and you should constantly improve  and stretch yourself so that you can make the shift to extraordinary greatness.

You don’t need anyone’s permission  to make this shift,  but there are pathways that can ease your way think of these pathways as being signposted by breadcrumbs, or morsels of permission.

These are the small parts of possible that appear in different places; these are the small parts of possible which appear at different times; and they can be easily missed.

You need to be hyper-aware and mindful of them. You need to assemble them like a puzzle, so that, like magic, these seemingly disparate pieces form a pathway on which you can journey and do extraordinary things.

Making the shift to extraordinary involves granting ourselves and others the permission to shift from  doing things in a linear, constrained way.

It involves approaching apparent dead ends with this mentality and the results will be the opening up of new paths of possibility.

I wish you well on your journey of reinvention, and I extend to you an open invitation to engage with me. Keep me up to date on how your life changes and on the incredible things that happen to  you as your progress your practice of being fierce.

How to Use the Power of Visualization

This is Day Twenty Five in the 30 Days of Reinvention Video Series [#30DaysReinvention].

Achieve more by visualizing success in advance.

FULL TRANSCRIPT

Hey, it’s Rand,

Years ago I became national champion in a very athletic sporting event that also included a fair amount of strategy.

In addition to rigorous physical training I maintained a daily positive visualisation practice.

Picturing myself winning, was as powerful as actually practicing.

The more you visualise a goal or outcome in advance, the more ability you have of achieving it.

 But bear in mind that your mind’s DNA, the way that it thinks, can either express itself negatively or positively.

If you visualise a disaster, guess what, you will most likely end up with a disaster.

But if you can visualise how a situation will play out as a success then you’re putting a positive spin on it and shifting your inner voice to a positive feel about that event this will cause every single fibre of your being to shift positively as well.

If you don’t make positive visualisation a daily practice, then your default negative voice will kick in and override any visualisation work you may have done previously.

Don’t think that once you are successful this all goes away. Even the most successful people in the world grapple with this on a daily basis. The table stakes simply get higher. If you fail after a big success, you fall harder.

Consider your goals of consequence and visualize being successful with them first. From there, cascade down into your daily activities and  visualise success with them.

You want to have a positive frame of mind all the way from your high-level goals down to your daily activities.

 if you have a positive view on a meeting, but a negative view over all, that will negatively impact the meeting. It may not totally cancel out the positive thoughts you have conjured up, but at the very least it will become a source of confusion for other participants who will pick up on your mixed messages. Aim to have that positive expression cascading all the way by visualising  how the meeting will turn out and thinking positively on a constant basis at different times during the day.
