“Every breakthrough is preceded by a breakdown. The good news is that 80% of the time it means you are on the verge of a quantum leap forward in whatever area you are experiencing the breakdown in, be it finances, business, health, or relationship”  ~Vincent j Kellsey


In 2010 I was running a successful coaching, speaking, and seminar business changing people’s lives and making good, if not great, money.

In 2011, I was living in a friend’s tiny back room, sleeping on the floor, going to a job I hated, waking in the middle of the night feeling like I was going to go insane with fear and dread and anxiety, knowing there was nowhere to run. I even considered taking my own life to escape the agony.

In 2012, I followed a dream and moved to Asia, I published a book, I led amazing and successful events for companies such as Warner Bros. in Hollywood, more than doubled my income, found the true love of my life, and found joy and happiness again.

So what was it that led me from success to despair and back again to success?What was the turning point that brought me back from total breakdown to breaking through to even greater success and happiness than I had experienced before the breakdown?

I was in a long term relationship that was not working, to put it mildly. My partner left our relationship 3 times in a span of five years, and the first time she left I was utterly devastated, shattered, and I completely lost myself, my identity, my personal power, and my life direction. How is it that we can put so much of ourselves into another person, so much so that if that person leaves we lose ourselves? I am far from an expert on that topic and will not attempt to delve into it, however I know that it happens to many people, and in reality has nothing to do with the relationship, and everything to do with our own sense of self worth, self power, and self esteem.

This type of breakdown can happen to people in any area, when they lose a job, lose someone they love, lose a home, have a major health challenge, etc. It can seem like our life and the world has crashed down and is over, and some even take their lives at this point. For me, I experienced what it was like to almost lose my mind, go over that “edge” we all fear…I saw that edge, walked it, and came back into the light.

So how did I get out? How did I walk away from that edge, never to look back?

I used the power of an emotion that is considered “negative” to save my life and transform fear into power. A friend did something that to me was a betrayal of trust and an abuse of friendship, and I simply got very, very, VERY, angry.

And I discovered something. That anger has power in it, whereas despair leaves you powerless. It is far far better to be angry than to give up, because the power of anger can be turned into action, which can be turned into results, which leads to breakthrough and transformation.

I am grateful to that friend, for they truly saved my life by prompting me to transform my despair into the power to take action. I now teach others how to transform fear into power, and my mission in life is to help people find true freedom and inspire them to step up and become leaders and teachers, showing others the way to freedom. In the words of Buddha, until all of us are free, none of us are free.

To your freedom!

Lady Gaga a Golden Dragon?

What do you think about Lady Gaga? The very fact that I do not have to even explain who she is a testament to her ability to “create” her fame and to have become a household name in just a few short years. She has become the number one musical artist in the world in terms of visibility and top of mind awareness.  Is there a lesson here for entrepreneurs and leaders?

The Key

What is it that makes Sir Richard Branson stand out from the rest of the successful billionaires whose names you probably don’t know? What made Madonna who she was? What is it that makes Lady Gaga as famous as she is today?  The answer to this question is the key to your success as a messenger, as a transformational leader, as an entrepreneur, as a business person.

And the answer is…..a willingness to be bigger than they are.  If you read my post on the most important success skill for experts, I talked about doing this in your video postings so that you will really connect with your audience-reach out through the screen and grab their minds and hearts.  But what about the rest of the time?

Mastering the Art of Fame

Lady Gaga has called herself a master of the art of fame. While you may not be seeking fame-I would bet that you are indeed seeking fortune. And the principle still applies-the more people who see your message, who buy your product or service, the more fortunate you become. And the bigger both your impact and your bank account.   Become a student of those who have mastered the art of fame, those whose names are well known, those whom you see daily on the news, on TV, in the movies- learn what they do and in your own way, model them, model what they do, because there is no arguing the fact that when something works in one place, chances are great it is simply a system and will work wherever you apply it.

Impact and a Powerful Message

What about Gaga being a Golden Dragon? She is using her fame and her ability to impact millions to share a powerful message of self empowerment from the stage. This is true mastery, true power, and the essence of being a Golden Dragon.  Reach millions-make millions-leave a legacy of positive change.

T o Your Success and Freedom,
