For the longest time, I wanted to be rich but I was not sure that I was allowed to want that so I pushed down my desires and just got on with being ‘okay’.

For the longest time, I wanted to impact people, to change lives but I did not really believe I had anything to say…

I had a feeling I was born for something more than the life I was leading but I kept waiting for someone to give me permission, to tell me what to do, to lead me to my own path. I had ideas, dreams, powerful desires but like most people, I thought I had to settle down and stop wanting so much.

OH, what a waste of time!

Thankfully, I finally realised that no one was coming and I had to choose to design my life the way I wanted it or nothing much would ever change and I would just die longing and wanting and never having received.

What of you? What do you want from your life? What or who are you waiting for, before you can claim it? Listen, the moment you decide that things change is the moment that they start to change so tell me, are you ready to be the person you were born to be? Here are 13 traits of the successful

1. You are not scared of hard work
You are someone with a bias for action. You work your socks off right now but it feels a little like you are sooo invested in building someone else’s dream and you want to build yours. WEll, honey, nothing is stopping you except you – If you invested all that hard work in making your own thing happen, you would make it happen!

2. You are a leader
People already look up to you. People already want to know what you think and now it is time to step fully into your role as leader in your own business.

3. You show up daily
Come rain or shine, if you choose to show up daily to do the real work that grows your business, that changes lives, you will win. It is that simple.

4. You do the work even when it seems uncertain
The ‘norms’ are waiting for certainty. They do not realise that you create certainty as you take massive action. How else will you know what works and what does not until you try it all out?

5. You believe in yourself
‘Norms’ give in their feelings of self-doubt. You feel doubt as well but you choose to keep moving anyway. YOu recognise that whatever you focus on will increase so if you do want a better experience of life, you have to believe that yu are capable of creating it.

6. You believe in your dreams
Yes, I know that at times, it feels too crazy to actually believe that what you dream about will happen. Your dreams are SOOOO big and so it is easier to pretend that they are impossible and yet as a DM, you choose to own the magnitude of your dreams and do whatever it takes to make it happen.

7. You surround yourself with other leaders
There are ‘norms’ everywhere and if you want a different experience of life, you are going to have to step up and find people with big ideas, with big plans, with big dreams because that will spur you on to greater heights than you have experienced to date.

8. You make no excuses
‘Norms’ look for someone else to blame for their problems and for their own shortcomings. You are not that person – You recognise that even if someone did do something to you, there is just no place for feeling victimized when you have decided that your dreams are going to happen. Powerful people make money, not victims.

9. You act decisively and you act fast
You are done with procrastination and delaying. You get an inkling of an idea for how to further change lives and you immediately take action to test things out. You are done with waiting for perfection and you are ready now to fire and then aim as you tweak your actions.

10. You spend time in silence every day
You know that the work you are called to do, requires that you tap into your deep wisdom. You willingly and daily, reconnect with God and in silence, plan out how you will show up each day. You express gratitude for your life and you recharge and charge out into the world, knowing that you are on point.

11. You allow nothing to stop you
You are determined to win, come what may and so, no setbacks are allowed to get in the way of that.

12. You face your fears and you keep moving
Fear is there but it is just a sign that you are stretching yourself and in fact, it makes you feel exhilarated as you realise that you are capable of so much more than you have given yourself credit for to date.

13. You choose to experience all of life
You are done with living a small existence! You are done with settling for less than what you are capable of! You are done with being a ‘norm’ and you are ready now to step up and lead in all areas of life and you are ready to experience everything that you want to experience, regardless of what people say you should want, what people say you can have and even what you have allowed yourself to do and experience to date.
