There comes a point when you have to make a decision. Continue being a man of potential or turn into a man of greatness.

Greatness can be whatever you want it to be. Stop basing your greatness on what everyone else is going for.

People are miserable because they aren’t being honest with their self.

Everyone wants 10 million followers, a nice car, and luxurious life. Maybe that isn’t what you really want.

Maybe you want 10 million dollars and nice house in the mountains.

Whatever you want, you can have. It all starts with turning your potential into greatness.

What Keeps You From What You Want?

What keeps you from what you want is simple. Instead of turning your potential into action, you stay in first gear.

You hesitate without going full blast. You have a head full of ideas but your bank account is on empty.

Don’t worry we are about to change that. Early in 2017, I was at the point that you are.

As I sat in an airport in Phoenix eating my Asian food, I was full of potential, but all I had was $142 to my name.

It was at that moment that I made a commitment to myself.

No longer was I going to put up with how my life had been going.

I had been through too much shit to allow my dreams slip away.

While it took months for me to get back into a stable position.

My life changed while in Phoenix. The same is about to happen for you.

You’ve been searching for the answer and I will lay it out for you here.

All you have to do is open yourself to it.

Put your pride aside and accept that what you’ve been doing isn’t working. If you can do that, then the truth will set you free.

Take 3 deep breathes…




Okay good your head is clear and you’re ready to turn your potential into greatness.

From this point on you’re different. While your circumstances are the same, your thinking is beginning to change.

How to Turn Your Potential Into Greatness

1) Stop Chasing The Secret

You’ve been conditioned to believe there is a secret. That you lack something and once you find it, your life will change.

That’s a fucking scam.

From your religion all the way to getting a college degree. It’s all doing one thing and one thing only.

Promising you an easy way to get to Heaven.

You aren’t going to make it to Heaven if you don’t do what needs to be done. The trash still needs to be taken out and you still need money.

Instead of trying to find salvation by going to church. Do what you have to do and start living the life that you want.

Salvation isn’t in some preacher.

Salvation is in your work.

The last time I checked, the Dark Ages are over.

It’s time for you to realize that you aren’t broken and that all you’ve got to do is take action.

At first start with the basics.

Start taking care of your body, get your mind right, and start a side-hustle.

Everything after that is easy sailing.

2) Break Out of Your Delusional Thinking

Obviously making money from selling your time doesn’t work. That is, if you want to live life on your terms.

You’ve already read dozens of articles about quitting your job.

Just go ahead and accept that your job isn’t going to give you you what you want. Yeah, you can go get another job if you want.

But you will end up in the same predicament.

You’ll be broke, miserable, and distract yourself with more Netflix.

I remember back when I worked a 9-5 job. When I got home I would relax with my girl, smoke weed, and watch Family Guy.

I was a man full of potential with nothing to show for it.

In 2014 I realized I didn’t have anything going for me. At that moment I woke up and started putting in daily action.

I didn’t know what I to do. Instead of letting that hold me back I just figured it out as I went.

Fast-forward to January of 2017 and everything clicked.

The moral of the story is that an extra $2 an hour isn’t going to cut it. If you want to live life on your terms you’ve got to stop being delusional.

As your family would say:

“You need to get your priorities straight and get real!”

3) Do Something CRAZY

The reason your just a man of potential is because you don’t believe in yourself. You’ve given into comfort and settled.

For you to become a man of greatness, you’ve got to do something crazy.

In my case it was jumping on an airplane to Los Angeles. Once I arrived I began working with Victor Pride.

I moved to the other side of the country with nothing but my laptop and a few pair of clothes.

I was in a completely new environment. This forced me break out of my complacency.

As we speak I’m working on another big move.

I don’t care what your current situation looks like. You can be buried in debt, living paycheck to paycheck.

None of that shit is going to change until you do something crazy. You can act like you can’t make it happen but that’s a lie.

Get a job and save up some money if you have to.

When things start getting easy it’s a warning that you’re losing it.

EVERY TIME this happens do something crazy.

4) Make More Money

There’s nothing worse than having lots of potential and no money. It’s all about the fucking money in this world.

Of course you should take time for your soul. But if you let your bills go unpaid and live like a normie then you’re forsaking your soul.

Figure out a way to start making more money. If you’ve got a job then start using your “free time” to make more money.

Define the amount of money that you need to live how you want. This gives you a clear understanding on how much you need to make.

It’s like a math equation. You add up your income until you don’t have to worry about working a job again.

From there you can study all of the books that you want. You can dabble in hobbies or whatever else you want to do.

5) Become THE Man

Now the final step to turning your potential into greatness is the easiest. After you’ve gotten everything else taken care of becoming the man just happens.

Once you’ve got money coming in, your mind is clear, and you can do what you want. Greatness will come to you as a result.

This is the step that I couldn’t understand. I thought that I had to focus on greatness to become great.

The real truth is that greatness is nothing more than your reward. Do what you need to do and you’ll get what you want.

The pen is your hand now.

  1. Dude, I’m all the way in South Africa and ii must say that you have taught me a lot and made me realise that we are all greater than we think we are.
    Once again thank you for always reminding me that if things become easy, something is definitely not right.

  2. Yes. Everyone should follow this advice:
    Do something crazy and force growth.

    I would go so far to suggest everyone put themselves through some sort of death ground.

    It’s the best way to see what you’re made of.

    (Coming from only $142 and the killing that followed is a great example of that.)
