In part 1 you will discover some vital tips for confidently breaking through ‘potential problematic ground’ on your path to accomplishment.  Since you must be willing to step out of your comfort zone, you might wonder, what is a realistic view of competency when under pressure?  Below are key points to remember when obstacles appear to be halting your success obtainment.

Did you know that developing clarity of your vision is mandatory for you to own confidence?  As a coach, there are specific questions I frequently get asked.  Here are four recurrent questions I hear from clients:

  • Where does my vision first start?
  • Why do you say, “Success demands that you deal with fear and also train for failure”?
  • What crucial tips will help me sustain resiliency through turbulence?
  • Why do you say, “In order to change my world – I must first change myself?”


I intentionally coach people how to reliably push through perceived setbacks.  I deliberately include this step because we all need to understand this next vital fact.  You can never achieve a higher level of success accomplishment than the vision that your subconscious mind holds of you.

  • With accurate instructions, you can successfully change your subconscious file.
  • You personally can transform any parts of your subconscious programming.
  • This includes data that is currently misleading your directed decisions and your outcomes.

Although Christians and non-believers have a different foundation, successful leaders typically ignore conventional wisdom.   Each person nevertheless, will find a defining moment or a key decision when they are willing to take a significant risk to experience a breakthrough.  Champions keep moving, despite adversity.  They know because they are prepared – their battle is half over.  Mental strength starts long before the conflict begins.

Any subconscious information you desire to alter, can beneficially be changed.  Fear is a subconscious based learned emotion.  Therefore no need to feel stuck!  Needless fear can be eliminated.

With your desire you can be trained to almost effortlessly tap into and convert your ‘personal subconscious file’ (programming).  Success is a choice!  You get to decide if you are willing to put down all your excuses.  You get to change non-beneficial attitudes, emotions and perceptions for your benefit.  This can help you turn mistakes and flaws into stepping stones for success!


In the upcoming blog – part 2, you can look forward to grasping some straightforward approaches for helping you champion tough situations.  You will learn some key components you need for sustaining mental strength.  You will discover what two elements are a must to set yourself apart from your competitors.  Until next time I encourage you to ponder:

  3. Are you ready to separate the ‘you’ from failure?
