Hey all. Welcome to Awaken The Greatness Within. My name is Asad, and I’m the CEO&Founder. This site was founded in October 2015, with a purpose to help inspire, motivate and guide people to success by helping them become the best that they can be by developing success from within.
ATGW was started to help others believe in themselves, to help them break through their limiting beliefs and to start living life limitlessly, people can achieve so much more, but they just don’t know it. Everything can be true if you believe in yourself. The goal is to empower millions of people to live life to a higher standard and strive for greatness.
I started this site to help awaken people to their true potential, I was asleep to my potential but now I have awakened and I refuse to live an average life, my mission is to impact people in a positive way so that they can be the best they possibly can be.
Use this site to reprogram your mind and your life so that you can go from average to greatness. Success is a journey of growth in becoming the best that you can be, develop yourself to your highest potential and don’t ever give up.
The goal is to awaken, empower, and create future leaders who take action and build ventures that advance humanity to a greater level. I am on a mission to serve as many people as possible and make a positive difference in the world.
My Story So Far
I got interested in entrepreneurship around 2008 after watching Dragon’s Den on television. Then in university, I had to choose an elective that was not part of my Advertising degree as I had failed another course, I chose Entrepreneurs in society, in the three years I spent at university that six months or so on that one course was the best time I had at university in terms of learning and being really interested in a subject. I could not see it then but as I look back now I can connect the dots and see that there are no accidents.
I graduated in 2010 and then just worked in retail trying to figure out what to do with my life. Fast forward to the end of 2012, I was still at retail but I knew I was capable of more, I knew there must be more out there for me. My mind was not aware or awakened at that time, I had fear of the unknown. Regardless of that perception, I took action and joined a tech startup as an intern, that came to an end as they required funding, and then I was jobless and I had no money, no job, I had to ask my father for money, I still remember that day – wow, looking back makes me appreciate how far I have come.
I did not just give up on myself. I took action, I got a contracting I.T job at the NHS (2013 I spoke out to the world I want a job at Google, I applied, no answer – remember this point – Law of Attraction) and then moved on to another contracting role at the (2014) University of East London, and then I moved to another company called (2014) Gratte Brothers.
Then in early 2015 via LinkedIn someone reached out to me about a job at Google. I interviewed got the job and was now working at Google as a Project Coordinator (on assignment via a company in Silicon Valley called Astreya).
Once I started at Google I thought to myself, this is great, however, this can’t be it, so then I started this blog. This blog started as a result of me inspiring people locally via a Whatsapp group I had called Entrepreneurs, I thought if I can inspire people locally, I can inspire people globally. The golden thread here is Action, I’ve never been one to think too much, I am a person of action, I just like to go for it, if it works, it works, if it doesn’t, it doesn’t. I think too many people overthink and then do nothing.
Continuing on, the year is 2018, I never started this blog to make money, I started this blog to inspire people. But then I awakened to the fact that I can make money and inspire people at the same time. I got more knowledgeable about Ad Networks and then in June 2018 I left my role at Google and have been a full-time Entrepreneur since then as the Ad income allows me to be free from the 9-5 way of life.
I have to give thanks to God for the blessings he has given me and to all the visitors to my site.
If I can do it, so can you. Don’t just make a living, design a life that you are proud to live, inspire people, help people, serve people, and use your time here to make the world a better place.
Believe in yourself my friend and make your dreams a reality.
“Live a life without limits, all things are possible to those who believe.”
