BACKDROP STORY BEHIND THE CREATION OF THIS BOOK
Regardless of what life dictates, I was finally ready to make things happen for me. It was my turn to live life full and be the best of ME. If it meant dragging myself out of bed at 3 am in the morning, to my laptop where I tap on the keys, ensuring that my life-story was written the best possible way. Perhaps it meant me driving 200 miles to a speaking event, then turning right back, cruising down the highways to catch a red-eye flight to yet another engagement. While it may seem hectic to others, this was me, living my dream… the dream I had always wanted since I was a little girl born in the South Western Region of Africa; the dream many told me it would never happen for me as a African female writer, living in diaspora; the same dream people laughed at, stating I was way too old to achieve in America. Yes, it was the dream of becoming a World Re-knowned Global Vision Midwife™, one who helps Creative Visionaries like myself, fearlessly deliver their legacy.
If you truly desire a door to open, seek it out; if it doesn’t open, then create a door for yourself, and run through it like your life depended on it.
~365 Daily Vision Nuggets, Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock
One event can change your life forever. I stand here for one main reason: I wanted to charter the waters many ahead of me were unable to. I desired to breakthrough the confinements of society and allow my divine purpose to speak out and speak loudly, bringing healing and recovery to those who may hear it. Though I had tried many times to speak up, but life trials and circumstances got in the way. Sometimes, it was my own self-talk which reminded me of my past failures: my failed marriage, my failed businesses, my homelessness, the guilt, shame, and self-loath I experienced in my most vulnerable moments.
THE 2 MINUTES IN HOLLYWOOD WHICH CHANGED MY LIFE
This time was different…I was ready to leap into destiny. I had the exit strategy and the success blueprint to make the leap and so, I jumped out of mediocrity and into my destiny path. From writing and self-publishing 20 inspirational books, to becoming bestselling author 9 times in different categories, to being the first recipient of the prestigious Literary Arts Award presented by the 2nd largest film industry in the world, Nollywood Organization- NAFCA, African Oscar in Hollywood, California; to winning five Hollywood & International Films award, (Peoples’ Choice- Best Screenwriter) being named one of the 100 women across the globe making an impact in their community, by Lift-effects in UK; Literary Arts Award recipient, Global Women of Essence Awards, launching my own TV show on YouTube, my own dedicated podcast, to finally having my brand, The Princess of Suburbia® licensed to an international fashion designer, creating a fashion collection scheduled which debuted in London, UK on May 29th, 2016.
The room was filled with dignitaries from all over the world, in particular Africa, celebrities from Hollywood, California; including Lou Gousette, Jr., Blair Underwood, Tommy Tiny Lister, to name a few, anxiously waiting to hear if they had won a film award. My family and I sat down and listened as the two hosts introduced the next NAFCA African Oscar Award winner!
“…. rom Africa to America…. Tonight, the Princess is honored for the stories she has crafted instead of the story she is in. The 1st Literary Arts Award is presented to Dr. Princess Fumi S. Hancock.”
The cheering in the crowd melted beautifully with the orchestra behind the curtains. This was the moment I had prayed for; a moment in time I had almost given up on; a moment when my efforts were recognized; it was a moment when my dream of standing in Hollywood to receive an award had finally happened. It was a dream moment, as I was thankful that I did not succeed in taking my own life, in my moment of despair.
As I was helped onto the stage to receive the very first prestigious Literary Arts Award, I looked through the crowd and found my family, kids, nieces, in-laws, and my love, Dr. David Hancock. It was a moment I wish I could capture in a bottle and hold on to forever. However, this impromptu video by my son, Demola, would suffice.
LIFE LESSONS WHICH IGNITED THE BOOK INTO EXISTENCE
If there were lessons I learned that day, they were that our valley experiences are not meant to kill us, but they are meant to “grow us” and provide viable tools for when we get to the mountaintop. I also learned that we must never wait for others to open the door, if they are resistant; push through the noises, focus to discover or rediscover, learn to ignite, launch, live, and sustain ones’ passion relentlessly. I learned that at the right season, those who are called to ones life would suddenly show up to join in and take you to your next level. These are some of the “precious & wise jewels” that have helped me in life, home, and business. The most invaluable lesson I learned as I watched the room in standing ovation was this:
"You did not find your calling; your calling finds you and compels you to live it out, on a daily basis. That no matter what circumstanced we find ourselves, we must learn to discover/rediscover the greatness that lie within us."
More importantly, when I stepped unto the podium at the NAFCA African Oscar in Hollywood California, and glanced down at the audience standing and cheering, I thought to myself, who could ever stop you from living an amazing life? Here you are, on the same podium you had truly relished for years, here you are Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock, an African princess living in diaspora, the very first woman ever to be awarded this great honor… all for my literary arts contribution.
WHY YOU MUST READ THIS BOOK
Now, I am ready to share my journey, my discoveries, and lessons learned with the one who is now where I was before: a professional, career-oriented, entrepreneurial-spirited, sometimes confused, frustrated, stressed, overworked, overwhelmed, discontented with life, often depressed and pre-occupied with sleepless nights; the one who knows he/she is completely misaligned with destiny, and in agony when trying to discover his/her passion; that one who is desperately seeking ways to acquire wealth through their passion, but more importantly, desiring to live life full and leave life empty!
Through it all, the good, the bad, the ugly, I have learned to release my amazing life, despite life's sometimes "harsh" lessons. I have learned that it is not about the “occurrences” but the journey attached to them. It is about us discovering our “genius” in the middle of a raging storm. It is simply about understanding that our experiences were not designed to break us but to mold and shape us, so that we are ready to live an amazing life. More so, it is about total submission to the process understanding that only you can do you the best possible way. That the world is waiting for the genius to arise and take back his or her vision.
WHAT IS THIS PHENOMENAL? 7 DAYS TO RELEASE YOUR AMAZING LIFE: A NEW GOAL FOR THOSE WHO ARE READY FOR THEIR NEXT
LEVEL SUCCESS... It is a paradigm "mind-set" shift.
As a Behavioral Health Interventionist & Coach, I guide women and men alike, to live the highest expression of themselves be it in life, business and/or career. Through the process of observing my current clients’ beliefs, values, goals, visions, dreams, and habits, I have observed unique characteristics to their success. These have prompted me to create 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life. I chose 7, because this is a spiritual sign of completion; days, because it creates an air of urgency thereby placing the responsibility and accountability on my client to keep pushing through the exercises and to know that it is attainable in days and not years, as one who procrastinates may believe.
WHAT THIS BOOK IS NOT!
It is not a "get rich quick scheme" which tells you how to get wealthy in on second. It is not meant for those who still desire to live in denial and are not ready to face their reality. It is certainly not meant for those who desire to stand still, just talk about what they want to do and are not ready to take action.
GREAT NEWS: WHAT THIS BOOK IS!
Forbes 2010, new businesses fail the first three years! Knowing this, what can we do to mitigate this and ensure that our own venture does not become part of the statistics. Walk with me as I share my personal journey through failed businesses and how I am choosing to sustain STORYTELLER BISTRO™ (A Princess of Suburbia® Brand). Nothing teaches us truth like the truth itself. Sustainability is a choice we must make. Readers will find out how in this book.
This book is this Global Vision & Self-care Midwife’s attempt to come into your individual space, and aid you (the SPEAKER, WRITER, BUSINESS CONSULTANT, PROFESSIONAL CREATIVE ENTREPRENEUR) in releasing your most awesome life.
Should you choose to accept this mission, the book will challenge you to live out your greatness by doing /reaffirming what you were designed for. You will join the elite group of my Fearless Visionaries™, who have decided to move beyond ordinariness, to ditch fear, and allow the visionary in them to leap out, for ultimate success. As my Fearless Visionaries™, you are sick of being tired, sometimes frustrated with life, and you are ready to birth your purpose, unhindered by outside or inside threats. YOU ARE MY HIGH ACHIEVERS READY
TO BANK YOUR BRILLIANCE.
WHO NEEDS THIS BOOK & HOW WILL YOU USE IT? The messages, practical tools, thought provoking and mind adjusting truths shared in this book is the heart & soul of my business... what I have adapted in life and home. Like me, my clients have learned how to achieve this balance. They are slaying their demons, rising above challenges, and achieving great success whether in life, home, career/business, and relationships. And now, you can too with 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life.
Books are an authors’ legs to the world. I believe that everyone is one step away from their breakthroughs. However, many do not understand how to leap from one point to the other. The goal(s) of this book is to inspire, motivate, and empower readers (primarily emerging professional entrepreneurs: (Life coaches, business coaches, speakers, authors, business consultants, online marketers, nurse-entrepreneurs e.t.c.) with tangible, practical tools to help them jump from where they are to where they ought to be. The second goal is to open for Dr. Hancock more meaningful platform(s) where she can share her legacy message to the world.
The Purpose & Mission for Writing the Book: Primarily to equip professional women (men secondarily) with entrepreneurial spirit ( that is, those in transition, and/or are ready to leap from a 9-5 environment to one where they are able to sparkle in their area(s) of brilliance either as a freelance consultant or business owner).
To accomplish this, the book will use my own life stories as a backdrop, encouraging readers to boldly “tear the veil™”, intentionally move past their pains/fears/ uncertainties, to master their brilliance, manifest it, and dominate their sphere of influence. In other words, 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life will encourage emerging professional entrepreneurs with applicable tools to discover/ rediscover, ignite, launch, live, and turn their passion into profit, while living an amazing life.
§ Fearless Visionaries (a blend between generation X & beginning baby boomers) are usually between the ages of 25 and 50. Statistics show America alone has 44 million people between the ages of 25 and 40. Said generation (X), are the MTV generations, who mostly live on the fast lane, desiring things to be presented in a fast yet simple manner. They do not have time nor are patient to spend most of their time learning. The baby boomers are now creating a segment within them. Those who have worked in corporate most of their lives, have the money to spend on improving themselves, are afraid of what will happen when they retire, tired of working for corporate, and feels they are ready to pursue their passion. However, they are unsure of ways to make it happen. Because many have worked in the corporate world, they are already used to deadlines; they are eager to learn, as the generation X, and feel they do not have enough time to be spending on long-term goals. Both groups are eager and ready for the next step. I understand both generations as I fall at the end of Generation X, with me, one year shy of the baby boomer generation. I therefore understand what drives both groups as well as how to communicate with them, as I currently do in my sessions with clients.
§ These Fearless Visionaries are technology savvy. They use technology to organize every area(s) of their lives (life, home, business).
§ A segment of my Fearless Visionaries often find themselves in the throes of transitioning- perhaps from a corporate position to finally living their dreams. However, there is a degree of fear of the unknown attached to their decision. As one who transitioned from being a Corporate Executive (Nurse Practitioner) to becoming a full time writer, speaker, coach; I understand their hesitation. More importantly, I understand that they do not have much time to sit through a 12 month program. This is why the book, 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life is a high level, quick read, easy to digest with subsequent actionable steps is appropriate for today. In this read, I provide practical and proven solutions in an easy-to-absorb format.
§ Since they are professionals who are very familiar with technology, their lives are well organized, particularly the ages 28 – 42. They are familiar and very functional with cell phones, different apps which make their business function or job responsibilities well thought out. So they understand the need to read the information in the book swiftly and would also be interested in subsequent audio version and master classes which may be developed as an upgrade.
§ Many in the selected age bracket hit what is known as the midlife crisis. Some are confused as to what they needed to be doing with their lives. Some know what it is but do not know how to accomplish it. This is where discovering or rediscovering your passion is crucial. On this journey, I will show how to discover or re-discover your passion/vision/calling.
§ It is one thing to finally figure your mission in life; it is another to know how to set it on fire! Whatever we desire to do, we must learn how to ignite that passion in such a way that it lasts. It takes skills to make this happen.This book is filled with numbers of ways to Ignite your passion.
§ Fearless Visionaries crave real stories of people like themselves… those who are not only discovering or rediscovering their passion, igniting it, but those who are actually launching their passion. This book is not short of examples of those who encountered challenges but turned their challenges into a launching pad for their vision and/or mission in life. 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life is filled with first-person stories of challenges and breakthroughs of those dear and near- and myself.
§ While we ought to celebrate our launch, it is pivotal that we learn how to sustain this launch. This book brings to light precepts and wise counsel regarding what we must do to sustain what we have worked so hard to build.
§ Sustainability leads to profit. How do one turn ones’ passion into profit? Some believe that often your passion is your hobby and often hobbies do not generate income. While this may be so for some, it is not for others. There are several concrete steps we must consider if we are ever going t o turn our passion to profit. Using my own life and some client stories I will show you how plausible it is to achieve profit, using 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life.
If anyone was less likely to succeed at writing, it was me. Though it was a passion I loved, I had odds stacked against me: some said I was a black African woman, some said I was an immigrant… others said I was getting too old to fulfill my Hollywood dream … after all I was now over 50! I plowed, struggled, tilled the ground, got the beat down, got stolen from, raped literally… but yet I stood. With several accolades behind me, it is such a great honor to prove all of my nay-sayers wrong! Your passion defies age, it defies what people think about you.. how they perceive you, what they think you will never accomplish. However, it will never defy how you feel about yourself… it will never defy your mindset. Because of this, I have learned to pay it all forward! Living my passion, master and dominating my brilliance has now given me the opportunity to pay it forward. My book shows you the importance of paying it forward and how you too can accomplish that.
§ Success in life is hardly achieved outside of relationship… healthy relationships. It is therefore important that we learn how to garner relationships which will enrich our lives. Since many of my fearless visionaries are busy working on their own career or their start-up businesses, this is the right time to understand the importance of ideal and meaningful relationships/ partnerships. I will show how to develop relationships which provide the support needed to accomplish our goals, vision, mission, with ease.
§ Often my fearless visionaries are not afraid to work hard. In fact, they believe that it will take an incredible amount of work to achieve their successes. Some even believe that their personal lives must be put on hold to achieve success or an amazing life where business creation is concerned. My goal in this book is to show them that living an amazing life does not begin or end with owning a business. In fact, I dare to say that not everyone is designed to run a business and because my brother is a medical doctor does not guarantee that I will be successful in medical school. Again, we must learn how to stop fighting ourselves and simply surrender to the process. A ‘stinky thinking” riddled mind will never see the glass half full.
RE-CALIBRATING OUR INNER STRENGTH: This book helps you to do just that.
MY AMAZING LIFE TILL DATE USING THE SYSTEM
My life has been a whirlwind of endless possibilities becoming realities. Possibilities which challenge me to release my inner genius. Becoming bestselling author 9 times, winning African Oscar 3 times, taking home the “envy of town,” Indiefest Film Award, Women in Films in Hollywood, becoming a recipient of Global Essence Award for Literary Arts, having one of my books turned into a film which won 5 Hollywood Film awards, Of Sentimental Value, directing my very first documentary, Fearless Visionaries Tear the Veil- which won me my third African Oscar in Hollywood, California. Launching my very own digital platform, International Diaspora Network, an On-demand Platform for TV programming, interviewing power brokers in their own fields, people like Dr Stephen Mansfield, a New York Times Bestselling Author, award winning Nollywood (2nd largest film industry in the world) producers and film directors, working with actors like Malik Yoba, Tommy Tiny Lister, an opportunity to travel to different parts of the world to speak, and now currently in Saudi Arabia on an Educational Consultancy contract. But, it was not always this way.
ENDORSEMENTS FOR 7 DAYS TO RELEASE YOUR AMAZING LIFE™
Through my ups and downs, abusive relationships, double bankruptcies, broken marriage, homelessness, losing jobs, businesses stolen, I have identified 7 concrete steps we must put into practice to release our amazing life. These steps have been put into my 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life, proven system.
(1). “I took the “7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life” masterclass offered by Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock. Wow! I remember the lyric from a song from “back in the day” that always intrigued e. It was “I’ve never been to me”. Well, thanks to Dr. Princess, I have been to “Sharon-land”. Many tears were shed as I learned how to break down the walls and tear the veil that I had constructed out of fear. I can deal with my past now, and look forward to the future with confidence in God. Thank you, thank you, thank you Dr. Princess Hancock. You are a God sent.”
~ Sharon Alvis, Social Media Representative at Green Wish Orange County
(2). “Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock is a trailblazer in the coaching/mentoring profession. Her approach to helping others ignite dreams and harness their vision is well needed in this current age of constant chaos. Her works take you on a life journey. The exercises enable her readers, including myself to be brutally truthful for restored strength and rejuvenation. Her work is Undeniable, Tangible, Honest, Irrefutable, Concrete, Authentic, and I dare to say Fire to the Belly.”
~ Maxine Holt Donaldson, Italian Vogue Model, Radio Show Host, Activist
(3). “Princess Fumi Hancock is an incredible woman, with an incredible passion to see people; women and men alike fulfill their purpose on this earth. She has witnessed first-hand in her own life, and in the lives of friends and family, huge circumstances and challenges that have come to distract and derail them from the plan and purpose that God has created them for.
(4). As her mentees read, I believe they will be freed to dream once again. They will gain heart-felt determination to become all THEY are intended to be and be moved to action to finish their races despite all odds.”
~Pastor Janet Conley, Snr. Pastor – Cottonwood Christian Center, Los Alamitos, California.
(5). “With hopes of healing herself and helping others, Fumi writes these words of inspiration to others.”
~Lynn Miller, West Windsor & Plainsboro Newspaper
(6). “Princess Fumi shares the message of hope in the midst of tragedy.” ~ Star Ledger
(7). “Fumi is a breath of fresh air to those who cannot see their way out and have lost hope. She is a modern-day Esther understanding her past, recognizing her season and God’s timing, while embracing her future. She reigns supreme as a communicator, a visionary, a spiritual giant that the world is about to discover, only we knew it all along.”
~ Dr. Phyllis Carter Pole, Author: Temperament – Your Spiritual DNA.
(8). Spring Hill resident Princess Fumi Hancock has been riding a wave of success since her books hit the shelves.
~The Advertisers' News- Spring Hill
(9). Princess is a very diligent businesswoman. She leads with her heart. I find her to be a pleasure to work with because she respects time. She is quick to implement strategies to grow her business. Princess is the type of person who gives her clients her all, because she gives 100% when it comes to improving oneself. One of Princess' greatest strengths is that she is very humble and listens well to advice that will help her improve. I would recommend anyone to work with her or collaborate with her, because whatever she promises to do, she won't stop until she delivers!
~Mychal Connolly a.k.a Mr. Stinkycakes: Cambridge Entrepreneur Academy
(10). “Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock is a great communicator and empathetic human being. As a scholastic colleague, she demonstrates the power to use communications to break through cultural blocks, helping deeply troubled people with depression and inability to access success in home, life, and business. As a Behavioral Health Specialist, she understands the need to provide a proven blue print to help her clients achieve their purpose.
Dr. Hancock has a flawless work ethic, and walks in equanimity; she squanders not her gifts and uses creative economy. She has assisted countless people as a resource and comfort during their trials and tribulations under her non-profit organization, The Princess of Suburbia Foundation, Inc. She is an exemplary clinician, a global citizen who is willing and able to reach out, share her expertise as a practitioner, researcher, and communicator.”
~ Kathleen T. McCoy, DNSc, APRN-BC, FAANP, Clinical Associate Professor
(11). I have known Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock for months now. I met Princess Fumi on periscope when someone invited me to one of her broadcasts, and what struck me was how much great content was she was delivering on daily basis, here on periscope.
She is very committed to teaching and mentoring individuals to step into their purpose. Right now, she is preparing and equipping us with the necessary tools that will produce tangible results in 90 days or less. If you ever need someone to talk to regarding mentoring, writing, publishing, or story to movie, then she is the right person because she is an expert in all of the areas that I mentioned above and more.
~Nkechi Njaeroh, Bestselling Author, Founder - Periscope, Afriscoper

(13). “Wisdom, vision, focus, success, courage. These are just some of the key words that resonate when I think of Dr. Princess Fumi Hancock’s mentoring style. As a published author, an experiencing her through her books, was well worth it. If you are experiencing that “bad patch,” “brick wall,” or the unholy void that life just drops in your lap, this read is for you. Use it as your lifeline in the storm, your lighthouse in the fog. Either way, you will not be disappointed.”

PAYING IT FORWARD: In this chapter, I will be sharing my own life journey back to Africa… my commitment to mother Africa, starting with 50 children I take care of in Emure kingdom, under The Princess of Suburbia Foundation, Inc. (The Adassa Adumori Project) (http://adassafoundation.org/) . The following is a partial picture of my 50 children I single-handedly send to school. In my 10 years of starting this non-profit, we have served over 500 children and we need more support to make this happen for other children.
Many recipients of the scholarship have become college graduates and viable persons in the society. More importantly, they are back in their communities giving back too.
While this book is primarily for Professional Creative Entrepreneurs, other groups would equally benefit for it.

Several of my clients will make themselves available for interviews to share how my 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life and all of her other programs changed their lives, both personally and professionally.
PRIVATE & GROUP COACHING
Another way of publicizing the book is to coach an interested client while a reporter shares the story on both the process and the outcome.

OTHER AVENUES OF PROMOTION
As the publisher of I Am a Master Storyteller™, a digital magazine which was launched October/November 2017 to raise awareness to the virtual platform, storyteller bistro where master classes are presented. This magazine will be released three times a year. This is a great please to post ads.

Author will pay to have press releases ran through this medium. This will bring to awareness the possible book tour and interviews.
Depending on when this book will be published, it will be my 21st or 22 book. 9 of my books have been Amazon bestsellers. I owe this to my launch team who are housed in one of my facebook groups.
The best way to launch a book and generate the kind of attention you need in order to make your book a best seller and/or just give it the best chance at success, you need two things:
1. An incentive for people to buy your book, the week the book launches (the opinions on whether preorders count for your ﬁrst week or sales vary, so this strategy doesn't include preorders).
2. A strong word-of-mouth campaign.
For the other books I have launched, there were at least 7 steps my team and I took when launching any of my books. These steps fall under the following 3 phases of Marketing & PR:
1. Pre-launch. The marketing campaign I’ll release to build desire before the launch.
2. Mid-launch. The activities I’ll do on and around the week of your launch to ensure success.
3. Post-launch. Will focus on finishing strong, learn from this launch and blow customers’ minds.
The following is just a check list of what myself and my team at storytellerebistro have followed through the years:
1. Pre-launch: Build (2-3- months before book launch)
Planning the launch:
Build a separate website or page for your book and give away a free chapter or excerpt of the book in exchange for people's emails. Use this site to announce the cover and title and let people know you're doing something special for the launch.

There have been many popular books on personal development, coaching, becoming successful, and living ones’ best life. Many of them deal with goal setting, performance, and coping in life. While this is great, many do not provide a step by step, concise, and practical ways of successful living. Most have not truly defined or allowed their readers an opportunity to understand what it takes to live an amazing life. Neither have their readers been given a straight, “in your face” approach which not only empowers the readers but forces them to dig deeper for answers they never knew they had before. 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life does all of these and more. Based on my unique personal “success” stories and that of ordinary people whom readers can relate to, in addition to the stories of thought leaders who are excelling in their own area(s) of brilliance™, this book fills the gap.
7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life is designed to meet the needs of today’s busy reader who wants powerful and useful ideas in an entertaining and easy-to-absorb format. It contains practical tips and strategies that can be implemented immediately as well as gives examples from people who have experienced these ideas work effectively and efficiently.
Some recent books which focus primarily on how to achieve successful living is Abundance Now: Amplify Your Life & Achieve Prosperity Today ( Lisa Nichols, HarperCollins, 2016, 336 pages, Kindle: $10.49, Paperrback: $12.79, Hardcover: $14.00, Audiobook: $28.95, AUDIOCD: $31.09).
In Abundance Now, this icon in the field of personal transformation shares her secrets to creating a life that is rich in every way possible. Focusing on the four areas of life that must be refined to bring true abundance, or the 4 E’s—Enrichment, Enchantment, Engagement, Endowment—Nichols identifies the framework upon which a fulfilled existence is built. Abundance Now offers provocative lessons, actionable plans, and real-life case-studies. She makes clear what we must do every day to attract abundance, how to act as if we are already leading abundant lives, and how to open the door to a life of richness in our work, our relationships, our finances, and in our view of ourselves.
7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life will not only compliment this book but it separates itself by creating a fast track to succeeding. It is a step by step approach looking at life, home, business/ career, and relationships. In its realistic applications, it invites readers to consider this journey as a process where you, achieving one phase leads you to the next: Discover- rediscover your PASSION (the central focus of the book unlike in the book Abundance Now), ignite, launch, live, turn into profit, and paying it forward. While Lisa focus on abundance, this book helps us to understand the rudimentary idea—that we must first understand what our passion is and what it is not; be certain about the vision we have for our lives, and only then can be begin to fully create abundance. Bottomline, we cannot create abundance when we are not even sure the vehicle we have in our hands to do that.
Another book is The School of Greatness: A Real-World Guide to Living Bigger, Loving Deeper, and Leaving a Legacy (Lewis Howes, Rodale, 2005, 274 pages, Kindle: $9.59, Paperback: $10.87, Hardcover: $12.63, Audiobook: $17.97, MP3: $9.99)
A framework for personal development, The School of Greatness gives you the tools, knowledge, and actionable resources you need to reach your potential. Howes anchors each chapter with a specific lesson he got from his greatness "professors" and his own experiences to teach you how to create a vision, develop hustle, and use dedication, mindfulness, joy, and love to reach goals. His lessons and practical exercises prove that anyone is capable of achieving success and that we can all strive for greatness in our everyday lives.
7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life focuses on helping the reader first figure out what is right or wrong about the path they have chosen. It brings to light those limiting habits and situations which have stopped them from living their passion. Greatness can only come when you have understood where you are and discern where you desire to be. The truth is that many are not quite sure. Teaching greatness, therefore, at the onset to my readers many be counterproductive. 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life is a foundation/rudimentary level to achieving greatness. It sets the tone and pace for achieving success, abundance, greatness, and yes…. Ultimately living an amazing life.
In Life Strategies (Phillip McGraw Ph.D., Hyperion, 2000, Paperback, 304 pages, $11.95), McGraw says you can erase the negative "epidemic behaviors" (denial, false assumptions, inertia, deceptive masking) in your life and reach your goals. Written with a tough-love tone, this self-help book is for readers who want to overcome the problems in their lives and break free from victimhood.
One of the ways to erase the negative “epidemic behaviors” is to first face life squared! We cannot address what we do not acknowledge. It is true that many people have probably buried their truths so deep inside of them that they do not even know how to retrieve the truth. Hence, 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life helps readers to do just that… dig real deep, pull out what is wrong, fuel what is great, encourage self to push beyond doubts, shame, guilt, reach out for the sky, and grab a hold of destiny. It is in discovering who we are, our back drop stories are brought to light. The first step to overcoming ones “problems in life and breaking free from victimhood,” is by first acknowledging what the problem is/are and what role we have played in its end result. This is the advantageous edge 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life has on all the mentioned books.
You must continually declare positive words upon your life, the lives of those around you and more importantly upon your ventures.
The Easy Road to Unfulfilled Goals! (9 Pages)
If you are frustrated about unfulfilled goals; if you are overwhelmed and feel a sense of being stuck in one place; if you are looking for ways to catapult from where you are now’ if you are somewhat discontent, dissatisfied with life; if you are ready to leap from where you are to where you ought to be (i.e. triumphant, overcoming, fulfilled, financially free), or perhaps you are at the point of giving up, may be you are excelling in your career/business and you just need some tips to pup you even higher, then hear this, YOU NEED A PROVEN & INNOVATIVE STRATEGY FOR SUCCESS!. You may be attempting to recover success or boost it, either way, welcome to THE EXPERIENCE.
If you feel unappreciated, overworked yet love what you do but are looking for way to monetize it, you are in the right place too.
The road to lack of progress hence failure is a wide and easy path. Sadly, it is a path many tread and no matter how much we declare on a daily basis if concrete and intentional steps are not taking to avoid certain pit falls in our lives, we will join the onslaught of people who on a daily basis find themselves in the dump and sea of failure.
In my book, YOUR VISION TORCH, I shared a 2013 Gallup Poll which reported that 70% of Americans hate their jobs. According to Forbes, 70% of employees hate their jobs, meaning that unhappy employees outnumber the happy by two to one. Deloitte’s Shift Index in 2013 reported that 80% are dissatisfied with their jobs. Business Insider in 2010 posed this question: though 80% hate their jobs should you choose a passion or a paycheck? Interestingly, a 2013 CNBC report proved it… that many would choose following their true passion or job satisfaction over office perks! People are simply getting more and more dissatisfied, disengaged, disconnected, and overwhelmed by the demands of their current career path. They feel something is missing and they are not fulfilled. For those who have really found themselves on a path they believe is their calling, as most nurses have often told me, they are overworked, stressed out, feel unheard, overwhelmed, underappreciated, and at times devalued.
Few years after the afore-mentioned reports, things have not improved. In fact, it has worsened. People are being maltreated at their places of work. Many are looked upon to work like machines. Many employees’ spirits are broken beyond repair! Yet management in some corporations are not sensitive to the silent cries of these employees.
I remember sharing my concerns with one “Manager” and he said to me, the same people that you think they will break and finally quit will not. I asked him why not? His response was we are the top paying company in the area, so they will not quit. My question them was, does that give us the right to break peoples’ spirits?
Why am I sharing this? I share this to say that we teach people how to treat us! Many of us have become another person’s door mat because WE CHOSE IT! Even as a door mat, there is a payoff for us. I know this may be hard to comprehend but think if it for a second. Why would any rational minded person allow another to dump on them?
The truth be told, many of us do not see ourselves as overcomers. We tell people what seem right for the moment, but we do not truly see ourselves achieving more than we are at that very moment. You are hardworking, you know your stuff, you have mastered your brilliance and brilliantly if I may add; you are a genius in your own right… you may not understand how things work in one field, you have certainly mastered your sphere of genius. Yet, you will allow people to abuse you, abuse your brilliance, and then turn around to promote someone else who just landed few hours ago, right on top of you. Why would you allow that if there is no payoff for you?
Are you living out your vision daily? Are you living it out loud and the way it is meant to be lived? Or are you merely surviving?
Hear this… you deserve to live a full life, one that feeds you emotionally, physically, and spiritually? Regardless of your previous life experiences or what you may have gone through last night, or even one second ago, you were born to succeed and created for excellence.
It is amazing what you will take when you were in your twenties, you will not necessarily accept it at 40 or even 50! Understanding who we are, what we were created for shows us our “why” forward.
On this journey, I will consistently ask you this simple question: How have you been living out your vision or passion? It is certainly my goal that as you read this book, you will consider the masterclass at: www.storytellerbistro.com called 7 Days to Release Your Amazing Life. While this book gives you a look at how it looks like to be successful, the masterclass is in-depth and will provide opportunities for practice.
As I write today, I sit in my apartment in Saudi Arabia! That’s right! For years, I have been known as a Global Vision Midwife across all of my social media platforms and internationally. It was only prudent that at some point in my life, I would not be flying in and out of countries, rather settle down to understand a culture.
We all have different seasons in our lives. There is a season to be quiet still, and be tutored. There is also season to be the mentee. To avoid the easy road to unfulfilled goals, you must learn to discern the season you are in. Because your best friend is in a season of speaking globally does not mean you are.
I can’t tell you how many people show up on my platform, my broadcast or blog asking for help on how to “find their passion.”
In fact, I have had senior executives turn to me asking for help! They are successful at what they do, they make loads of money doing it, but they feel a gap in the pit of their stomach. They understand that there are things beyond what they can see. They know they need to start planning as they know that whatever train they are in right now would not last! More importantly, they are afraid to make any moves because they are afraid to lose the income they have been accustomed to.
Isn’t it therefore amazing to see that both the wealthy and the poor share the same fears and uncertainties. The only difference is that one does it in style and money in the pocket.
I challenge you to pick up your torch, fight for your life, and make an intentional decision to live an amazing life!
In Your Vision Torch series, I shares some stories. As a master storyteller, I believe that you can learn from other persons’ stories. And so, I continue on here… sharing stories which I trust will impact you in a positive way.
A Life Lesson from "Hurricane," the movie
A short while ago, I watched a movie called “the Hurricane” (1999) and in it, a black man who was uprising in the field of boxing was railroaded. Never mind that he was also naïve, ignorant, somewhat pompous when he was growing up. From the movie, it seemed like when he was rising up in that field, he didn’t think anything or anyone could touch him! He was wrong! For over twenty years of is young adult life, he lives in a penitentiary for a crime he did not commit! For twenty years, he was subdued. His spirit was broken and his pride shattered… for twenty years, he watched those who were behind him disappear one at the time and was left alone in the penitentiary to face his face. Stay with me, I am going somewhere with this story. At first, he fought hard for his release and every time his hopes of going back to his family became grime. At some point, he stated he finally gave up and turned to his “reality”, that he would live the rest of his life in the penitentiary. Denzel Washington played the lead role and oh my, as usual, he was spectacular! The actual star and Hurricane himself was Rubin Carter! In this movie, there were two statements he made that just incredibly moved me:
***Hate put me in prison and now, love is going to burst me out!
***The second one was when he alluded to Vicellous Shannon’s character, “Lesra” that writing was a powerful tool… one he used to get his mind right. Writing was his sanity instrumental, one which impacted not only himself, but those around him and the global community. Rubin Carter in the movie was impacting the global community from behind the prison! He had resolved in himself that he may never come out of the prison but his life would make a change in the global community! He may have given up on the fight to come out of prison but he had resigned that his “strokes of pen” would change peoples’ mindset… what he didn’t have growing up! Little did he know that the same stroke of pen was going to “burst” him out of prison for good.
Where am I going with this?
Never give up on the fight of your life no matter how grim things may look now! Secondly, what you put out, you will get back! So be careful what you are putting out. If you choose to be reckless with your life, reckless results will find you! Sadly, that same reckless decision may cause you your life, home, family, career, business… endless. We all have probably made mistakes with decisions we should have made and half of us today, including myself, are sitting right in the middle of the outcomes of these un-canning decisions. Sadly, many have died in the middle of the outcomes and never resolved anything before they died; some have literarily taken their own lives because they couldn’t live with their decisions and outcomes. If you are reading this, well, am I glad you are alive to do it all over again. Ruben Carter got another lease in life through the strokes of his pen. He did not stew in his demise but simply channeled it into impacting another life with his writing.
The Hurricane story has impacted me deeply and even given me a more dedication and greater insight into my writing career. That it is not what I can take for granted! This movie has truly affected me in such a way that I have a better understanding of the role I play in society. That through my writing, I can change a life! He said, “I transcend the place that holds me through writing” What a powerful revelation.
So today, in this book, Release Your Amazing Life, I charge you as Your Global Vision Midwife, to transcend the places that have held you bound. Whatever may have caused you to give up on certain dreams… whatever may have demanded that you no longer pay attention to your passion… whatever may have convinced you that you are not meant to live your best life, I want you to put it aside today…. I want you to pay close attention to your surroundings. I need for you to go back and dig real deep down inside of your battered ad shattered soul; I need for you to intentionally declare that BREAKTHROUGH HAS COME and what has held you bound before will no longer have a hold on you. It doesn’t matter if you don’t even know how to climb out of the bondage yet or that challenge. You begin at a place where your soul has finally found rest. Channel that rest into a gifting and allow your brilliance to shine enough to change a life.
This is what this book is about. Today, I step up to allow my brilliance to shine regardless of whoever may choose to pick up this book to read.
Just as I often do in other books and broadcasts, I tear down the veil and allow my brilliance to touch a life. If you are engaged in this book, then you are that soul I have been called to impact.
Another lesson gotten from the Hurricane movie. Things did not start moving in his favor until he became passionate and convinced it was time for him to get out of the prison! His passion and intense drive, understanding what he stood to lose… which was that his case was never ever going to be heard ever again I n any courts if his newly found evidence was thrown out of the supreme court. Whatever we may be going through, we have to be intensely passionate about finding a solution. Just as a boxer gets knocked down and he gets back up again in the ring to finish the fight, we too must stand for our vision, our purpose, our passion in life! Just because you know what you are called to doesn’t mean it will automatically happen!
The bigger the dream, the bigger your adversary… the bigger the hurdle to fulfill that dream.
For every big dream you know you are meant to fulfill, or whatever dream you are yet to discover; there are “persons, places, things ready in the wings to distract you from getting to your destination.
Ruben Carter underestimated what “people” could do and he left himself vulnerable. He felt making it in the boxing arena meant he had clout enough to get himself out of the pickle he found himself. Little did he know! We must never underestimate the kinds of trouble people, places, and things can get us into, when we leave ourselves vulnerable to them. Often, when I talk about persons, the first thing on our minds are “people” other than ourselves… you begin to think about the last friendship we had that went soar, the relationship where you were dumped, treated badly, or that close family member who behaved badly to us. While this is may be so, the greatest enemy you have is YOU. YOU can be your worst nightmare or your greatest cheer leader. It is all in perspective. When you loathe yourself, talk yourself down, underestimate your own gifting, allow people to chew you, and the spit you out; when you are so quick to judge yourself, when you fail to listen and take directions, you are dragging yourself down the pipeline of failure. If you are out there feeling devalued or you find yourself devaluing yourself, know that YOU are your nightmare! It is easy to get rid of a toxic relationship, remove yourself from a JOB which is working you too hard and unreasonably. However, what is more difficult to do is getting rid of your own self. We cannot remove ourselves from US. We live with ourselves and have to face the dancing drum of our lives, either we want to or not. Though we can’t remove US, there are steps we must take to ensure that our dreams, aspirations, hopes, vision, mission whatever you call it does not self-destruct!
As a writer, I am forever grateful that the Creator allowed me to write. So, I do not take the stroke of my pen lightly or my mastermind, and success club, all of which are found on Facebook as a group. As a writer and as I am writing this book, I know that wisdom is oozing out and bouncing on to my tablet. So, today I urge you to remove doubt, shame, fear, feelings of unworthiness and never enough, off your vocabulary.

To live the life you want and need, there are 7 steps which I will attempt to lay out here for you. Success does not jump on us but we must intentional strides to make success happen.
What success looks like for me may not be what it looks like for you.
To begin this journey, let’s answer the following questions:
(1). Define What “Success” is to YOU? I am not talking about what is looks like for the person you admire, or your parents, but what does success mean and/or look like to YOU?
This question requires a heavy dose of soul searching. Every so often, we look around to find someone we can emulate. There is nothing wrong with this except today, the limelight is on you my friend.
Let me help you out here, as right now I am on a global journey where consulting in the Middle East is part of success for me. Therefore, success means accomplishing the goals I have set for myself and my company this year. It means using my brilliance to impact that part of the world.
Life/Home: having strong family bonds; terrific relationship with my husband, children, and extended family.
Relationship: Business- Forging strong and meaningful alliances with power house entrepreneurs.
Health: Weight Loss- and keeping it off. Eating right, exercising right.
Ministry / Spiritual: That I will continue to use my gifting to be a blessing in my local church and that at large.
Business / Career: Assess and re-assess where I am with m y area(s) of brilliance. Are they being served well? Am I on course or have I derailed? This coming year is a year of complete and good old assessment/re-evaluation of where I am with my business. Am I making head way or am I dropping balls all over the place?
