Synopsis and Bio of the new book

Everyone is greatness material. We all are endowed with unlimited potential. Greatness is chained within us waiting to be unleashed. Unfortunately, in every generation, very few unchain their greatness. The overwhelming majority fails to attain any level of greatness at all.

In ‘Unchain Your Greatness’, the author recognized the four stages the great ones from diverse cultures and generations passed through to achieve their inherent greatness. Those who unchained their greatness were like everyone else except that they followed four straightforward steps (the 4 E’s). They Explored, Enacted, Endured, and Emancipated their greatness to the fullest.

The great ones explored and discovered what predisposed them to manifest greatness. They took bold actions based on their findings. Those who attained greatness also faced numerous obstacles as a result of taking massive actions and pursuing the road to greatness. However, they endured, outlasted continual setbacks, emptied themselves, and ultimately emancipated the greatness shackled within and left enduring legacies.

On top of providing the model the great ones adopted to unchain their greatness to the fullest, the book narrates the stories of great men and women from different religions, age-groups, and fields to show you the attitude and mindset they had as they progressed through these four simple phases. It also shares with you what the great ones discovered, the actions they took, the challenges they overcame, and the legacies they left because they unchained their greatness to the fullest.

Dr. Assegid Habtewold is a coach, speaker, and facilitator at Success Pathways, LLC. He is also the host of ‘Pick Yourself Up’ show that airs on Channel 16. Assegid serves diverse clients including some government agencies, major corporations, and community organizations. He is the author of four books.

Know your assignment, talk about, and pursue it or else…

Have you ever thought about this? What would have happened if Jesus didn’t talk about some of those seemingly ‘prideful’ things like you cannot do anything without Me, I was before Abraham, I’m one with the Father, whoever sees Me sees the Father, and so on in the name of humility or fear of being labeled as blasphemy?

No one would have believed in Him as the Savior and Son of God. No one would have got saved. You got the picture!

Now, what do you think has happened and would continue to happen to you and others if you are shy about who you truly are and your assignments in life or if you decide to be too ‘humble’ and refrain from talking about who you’re and why He sent you at this juncture in human history with unique passion?

Think about it. Pray about it. Meditate on this.

If you do, you would come to know its dire consequences on you and others you suppose to serve.

Once you know the impact and implications, you throw away any pretension and hypocrisy. And, you become bold and ready to pay whatever price this lifestyle costs you.

If you have already begun this lifestyle, share with us your experience…

Jobs tapped into the downtime as he worked hard for his comeback

“After one of the most humiliating outings in the history of US corporations, Jobs returned to Apple after 12 long years as Moses to take it to its Canaan. Jobs eventually regained his leadership position. He was crowned and placed at the helm of Apple once again.

However, one thing many people tend to forget is that Jobs didn’t waste his time in the wilderness. His glorious return wouldn’t have happened if he didn’t tap into the downtime. Between the time he was fired and his triumphant return, he didn’t waste his energy, time, and resources complaining and whining. Rather than blaming the Board and John Sculley- his mentor and the man he himself begged to join Apple, Jobs kept himself very busy. Rather than nursing his wounds, he was actively working toward his comeback.

During that downtime between 1985 – 1997, Jobs could have run away from the valley, called it to quit, or mourned his loss for a very long period of time. If he did, no one would have blamed him. Many would have sympathized with his decision. Instead, Jobs tapped into that downtime to further create. Next Generation and Pixar were the two classic innovations of Jobs that came to existence while he was passing through hell…”

The excerpt is taken from the upcoming follow- up book to The Highest Level of Greatness p.124

We all have wilderness moments regardless of our calling and God being with us. Moses, David, and Jesus had their wilderness moments and they tapped into these seasons as they believed, behaved, and acted waiting for their break.

For instance, David was anointed by one of the greatest prophets. That didn’t shield him from passing through his wilderness season. However, David didn’t lose heart while in the wilderness. He remained faithful to the One who anointed Him. He believed and waited for his payday. While in the wilderness, he tapped into the downtime as he was chased by King Saul. He never gave up in ‘the valleys’ of life. What about you? Have you bee in the wilderness yet? What was your attitude while passing through that tough time? Did you use the downtime wisely?

Change your prayers, find your Peter’s

I wrote the piece below quickly after I had a very serious conversation with a very gifted spiritual leader. And, I thought the core of my encouraging words to him may liberate you too if you are struggling like him. Read it and let me know what you think:

If you’re a leader, listen to me very carefully. If you have been complaining why people cannot see what God put in you, pay attention. If people couldn’t comprehend your talent, gifting, and teachings, lend me your ears for a while. You are about to be free forever.

Except a few, spiritually alert, many cannot see your true potential and your place in the Heavenly places. Think about Jesus, your Lord. Many despised Him. Used all kinds of ugly names to describe Him.

By the way, don’t forget that there were those who saw a king in Him. Remember, they tried to anoint Him as their king. Likewise, your loved ones, many of your relatives, and friends may see your earthly place based on your education, talent, and gift.

Even these few smart guys who saw a king in Jesus, they couldn’t see the King of Kings. It didn’t occur to them that they were looking at the everlasting King. They couldn’t comprehend that He was the King not just over Israel but over every creation of God in the physical and spiritual worlds.

Thus, know that the mass doesn’t listen to you at all, let alone to believe in you  There are few who may capture the glimpse of who you are. Only a few whose inner eyes are opened can only know your true essence and calling.

Therefore, don’t sweat over those who don’t like or listen to you. Don’t get depressed by their mistreatments. Don’t be flattered by those few who appreciate your earthly talents and gifting. Be thankful for these but never lower your true self to appease others. It doesn’t please God, He cannot use you. The people too, they don’t benefit from a tampered you. Be where He called you and stick with your gun!

Here is a serious challenge for you. If they despised Him if they couldn’t understand Him if they failed to capture His true self, what makes you think that people will treat you differently? If they couldn’t handle the pure One, the Righteous One, the Perfect One, the mighty One, what makes you think that a ‘sinner’ like you- a man/woman full of flaws, deserves a different treatment than your Master?

Remember this, however, there was one innocent in his heart whose inner eyes were opened by the Father, Peter! He saw the Christ- the Anointed One, in Jesus! He saw in Him, the Son of God, an everlasting King, and Lord over every creation. Peter answered Jesus’ question: “Who do people say I’m” by saying “You’re the Christ, the Son of the living God” (Matthew 16: 13 – 20). Jesus didn’t bother about what the rest of the team were saying. He revealed, “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood, but by my Father in heaven.” Jesus then immediately made Peter the rock of His church and gave him the Keys to the Kingdom.

Don’t forget. Jesus knew very well that: “No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws them, and I will raise them up at the last day.” (John 6: 44)

Thus, instead of complaining about the multitudes who despise and misunderstand you, find your own Peter’s. Trust the Father to send the right partners your way. These are your lifetime partners. They know your true calling, your place in your society and in the Kingdom of God. They complement you, you do the same, and together you all get fulfilled individually and collectively.

On a daily basis, pray to meet these few than kneeling down and interceding to transform those who will never believe in you; who will never know who you truly are.

What is more? It’s not your intellect and unceasing prayer that gonna help you. It takes the Father to open their inner eyes to see your true calling and their roles in your assignment.

No need to chase the sheep to follow and beg them to stay

Jesus never chased people to follow Him even if He had the most treasured gift on His Hands. He never also begged people to stay with Him.

When the majority of His followers, at one point, complained about a hard teaching they couldn’t comprehend (a teaching that brushed their egos), they left. What was Jesus’ reaction? Begged them? Went after them? Manipulated them to stay and give Him a second chance? No No!

Jesus asked the rest, you too, do you want to go?

If you truly know who is in you and what He deposited in you, you follow Jesus’ example.

Stop chasing people. No need to beg people follow you.

The Father knows who need your words and touches. He will entrust on your hands the right sheep, if necessary, sheep you must die for.

These sheep will immediately know you when they come in contact with you. What is more? You too; you will recognize when these sheep show up.

Develop discernment and wisdom to outsmart the devil

Naievity is to think that the evil one, the devil, comes with ugly and scary faces and horns. He is ancient, he had been there before you ever came to exist. He is a spirit and can enter into those who allow him to trick, misinform, manipulate, and kill you.
 
Don’t forget, he comes to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10: 10).
 
Remember, he cannot enter into you without your permission, and most importantly, he cannot touch you physically.
 
He needs a temple to communicate and also attack you.
 
The question is who are his temples?
 
Don’t assume that he would use people you don’t know. He won’t use the people you don’t trust either. NO, NO, NO! He isn’t a fool.
 
Do you remember how he tricked the first Adam? He used someone he loved and trusted, Eve! She wasn’t the one who was told about the fruit and the consequences of eating it. Adam was. It was unlikely the devil to trick Adam. That was why he crafted an entry point and used Eve…
 
Do you remember how Philistinians got into Samson? Through Delilah!
 
Disclaimers: The above two examples shouldn’t lead you to develop paranoia. Just don’t trust those who haven’t earned your trust yet. Always, pray and meditate before making key decisions and taking critical steps. Remain spiritually alert to discern between the voice of the Holy Spirit and the devil’s. Of course, this isn’t about wrong women. Expand your perspective, the same may happen outside of romance. It can happen in the market and workplaces, and churches. The devil may also use men to get to godly women 🙂
 
The above two examples, rather, warns you to develop discernment and wisdom to outsmart the devil. Without these two, you and your destiny will be destroyed, if not now in the future. If you’re unaware of one of the most deadly weapons the devil uses, you’re at risk…

Becoming: Going beyond knowing and practicing the truth (1-min video)

We’re supposed to be spiritual- tap into our spiritual side, not religious.

One of the key factors, as you grow spiritually to tap into your unseen potential and the spiritual world, is to know as many truth as possible while you’re alive here on earth.

You cannot live a free and flourishing life without knowing the truth. Jesus said, “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” (John 8: 32)

The question is how many truths should I know to grow spiritually. According to Jesus, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth.” (John 16: 13) We don’t need to know the truth in Heaven. We’ll be with the truth. We need it now and desperately.

However, knowing is the beginning of this journey. We need to practice and finally become the truth we come to know. In this one-minute or so video clip, I talked about BECOMING: Going beyond knowing and practicing the truth.

Next week, I’ll have an Amharic Facebook Live to expand on this…

Those who’re already in the Kingdom are harmless

Those who made it to the Kingdom of God while here on earth are harmless. They’re in this world, but they’re not governed by the flawed values and principles of this world.
 
They have eternal values for which they are committed. You can predict them. You can trust their words.
 
They don’t have ulterior motives.
 
They’re already in the Kingdom of God and live up to the expectations of this everlasting Kingdom, its culture, and values.
 
Are you one of those who made it to the Kingdom? How do you know?
 
Do you know how to differentiate those who are already in the Kingdom from those who claim in the Kingdom but aren’t yet?
