You’re Born to Greatness (video clip)

This motivational speech was given to Cherry Hill Believers Church in Maryland. This the same speech was given a week earlier to one of the mega Orthodox Tewahedo church in DC.

The two latest books of Assegid Habtewold (The Highest Level of Greatness and Unchain Your Greatness) were written to anyone regardless of his/her religious affiliation, cultural background, or nationality. However, Assegid serves diverse Ethiopian Christian denominations by taking some of the contents from the books and the Bible.

If you’re interested Assegid to speak to your group, reach out to him at assegidhm@gmail.com or call him @ 703-895-4551.

Remember, Assegid Habtewold Ministries is a non-denominational ministry that serves all denominations. He doesn’t promote or criticize any one’s dogmas or doctrines.

Empowering Ethiopian Youth in the US

This morning I was in a DC church to inspire mostly 2nd generation Ethiopian youth born and raised here in the US. The theme of my presentation was ‘You are Born to Greatness’ based on my latest 2 books. There was a question and answer session in the end where the kids were engaged and asking thoughtful questions.

I was so happy to closely witness spiritual leaders, teachers, and mentors of these kids going the extra mile to empower their youth not just on spiritual matters alone but also in the knowledge that equips them to succeed in their personal and professional lives here in the US. These leaders are doing a favor to the kids, their parents, our community, and to God.

Other similar institutions should draw a lesson from these leaders to empower the young generation with the holistic knowledge that equips them to succeed well beyond home and the four walls of the church. Building the youth is building the future of our nation!!!

Interview with Leaders of Your Ethiopian Professionals Network

Last week, I had the opportunity to interview the co-founders of Your Ethiopian Professionals Network. In this interview, we talked about:

  1. Why YEP exists? What was the very reason that led you to establish YEP
  2. What are the top three major achievements of YEP?
  3. What are the 3 biggest lessons you learned individually because you have been serving as leaders?
  4. What are the toughest challenges YEP faces?
  5. What lessons would you like to share with other similar professional groups?
  6. What the future holds for YEP? Where do you see YEP in the next five years?
  7. Are there some ongoing or upcoming projects you’re engaged with right now that you would like to share with our viewers?
  8. And more.

These young dynamic leaders have a lot to offer. I encourage you to watch their interview. Reach out to them if you may have any feedback or question. And of course, if you’re in the DC metro area, join YEP, be with like-minded people to grow personally and professionally. If you’re in Ethiopia, no worries, you can be part of the initiative they recently introduced in Addis.

Serving Church leaders and Christian professionals and entrepreneurs in Ethiopia

After 13 years, I’m going back to Ethiopia. While there, I’d like to empower some Church and Ministry leaders, and Christian professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders based on my books. The following are some of the services I intend to provide :

  1. Sermons (in Amharic, Ethiopians local language) for congregations, and teachings for youth groups in both Amharic and English (there are English programs in some churches)
  2. Leadership training for church and ministry leaders, administrators, and volunteers
  3. Soft Skill workshops for Christian business owners and professionals.

By the way, we would like to offer these services in the future by traveling to Ethiopia quarterly.

Please pray for us to get the necessary funding to offer these services locally, and also to serve God’s people with excellence. If God speaks to your heart to support these programs financially, please go to the ‘About’ or ‘Donate page of our website. We need your prayer and support because our ministry is very small and don’t have the required resources to provide these services alone. Many of the beneficiaries cannot afford to fund these services either.

If you have a Church or Ministry that you support in Addis, let me know, I’ll try to provide one or more of these services to them.

Note: I’ll document my activities and share my report on our website with pictures, video clips, and testimonials to show you the impact of your prayer and financial support.

Walk as if you’re already great because you’re!

It’s easy and simple. If you still have sin consciousness and feel deep inside that you’re unworthy, you’ve not yet saved, you’re not yet born again 🙂
 
If you keep apologizing for being created to manifest greatness, you aren’t yet in faith. If you still doubt that your destiny is at the top, if you aim lower than standing at the top of the mountain like a shining light before you depart from this universe, you’re not yet free from the guilty consciousness that was introduced when Adam fell.
 
Don’t tell me that you know the Son of God who freed you while bowing your head as you walk in this world. Don’t preach to me that you walk side by side with Him on a daily basis and still you don’t have the boldness to believe that He restored you to the former glory before Adam fell.
 
You’re free. You’re worthy. You’re the crown jewel creation for the Father, and you’re the brother or sister of the King who restored us into our former glory.
 
Don’t feel bad and apologize for your being greatness material. Greatness is your birthright.
What is expected of you is to seek the highest level of greatness- the greatness Moses, Mary, Simon the devout, Jesus, Paul, and the likes sought after- and finally commit yourself to pass through the four stages they passed through to unchain the greatness God had chained within you before the foundation of this universe to the fullest…

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. His latest book is entitled ‘The Highest Level of Greatness: purpose-oriented, vision-centered, and values-driven greatness’.

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…

Don’t die before uttering this magical phrase ‘It’s finished!’ (Excerpt)

“The great ones you and I admire knew when they were finished. Actually, many of them uttered this magical phrase ‘It’s finished’ in public or, at least, privately. Once they crossed the finish line, once they completed their assignment, they told the people close to them that they were done and ready to leave…” Taken from the upcoming follow-up book to The Highest Level of Greatness p. 147. The book will soon be available on Amazon. Stay Tuned!
 
Jesus, Paul, and many others finished their race with flying colors. They finally uttered this majestic phrase: ‘It’s finished!’ during their lifetime. Is there anything else better and fulfilling than to reach the end of your life knowing that you have climbed the right ladder and you were done according to His calling and expectations? I don’t! This the only crown that matters the most. A crown for fighting the good fight and finishing your race from the author of this universe, the all-knowing, the loving, and the majestic Creator!!!
 
What about you? Have you seen your finish line? How far are you from the mark? How much are you determined to conclude your race and utter the phrase: “It’s finished!”? Remember, your fulfillment is in question until you cross the finish line. Don’t forget. Crossing the finish line is within your reach. You have what it take within!
 
If you are in this world to live like a soldier to serve the world through your assignment, passion, and talent and give your best and die empty, we’re partners. This ministry is for such determined, bold, and brave souls. We don’t serve those who made their minds to just survive and leave this world ‘alive’ 🙂 We are your cheerleaders cheering for you and empowering you to cross over the other side triumphantly once you are done with your assignment.

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?
