Robin Sharma’s The Victim To Leader Leap

Robin Sharma's The Victim To Leader Leap

Robin Sharma shares his tips on how to go from being a victim to being a leader. Use his tips to elevate your life to a whole new level.

“I believe there’s not a lot of payoff in safety and I believe a dangerous life is a greater payoff than a safe life. You don’t really grow unless you take some risks.”

“As I crisscross the planet I realize there are so many people who are behaving like victims and they are so stuck in victimhood but they recite their excuses and the victim stories so often they don’t know that they’re not seeing reality, they’re seeing life or reality through a lens of them being a victim.”

“Our perception is what drives our performance and our beliefs are what drive our behaviors.”

No1: “The victim has a mindset of can’t and the leader has a mindset of can.”

“Your behavior highlights your beliefs.”

“Leaders have a psychology of possibility. It’s all about can, their whole belief, their whole tone, their whole way of being is I can do this for you customer, I can get this dream done, I can bring my best game, I can live an epic life.”

“Where are you stuck in a mindset of can’t? Which is how victims operate, and how can you leap to the psychology of possibility?”

No2: “Victims are busy being busy. So they’re going to come up with all these reasons why they can’t do world class work, why they’re not in great health, why they don’t have a great family life, and why they’re are not having an impact on the world.”

“When you watch a victim in action, they’re really busy being busy, they’re always doing meetings, they’re always talking, always moving, but please don’t confuse movement with productivity. There’s a big difference between busyness and impact.”

“Busy doesn’t mean you’re being productive.”

“The victim is busy, whereas the leader is productive.”

“Ask yourself how can I actually shift to being monomaniacally focused on the few things that would make me productive.”

No3: “The victim is really distracted. The victim loves entertainment. The leader loves education. The victim loves leisure. The leader loves learning. The victim is really distracted.”

“An addiction to distraction is the death of creative production.”

“Most people are unbelievably addicted to distraction, checking their phones, browsing the internet and it just goes on and on. And they are not focused.”

“The leader understands minimalism, the leader understands the essence of genius is simplicity, so the leader builds their life around the big5/vital few.”

“Become really, really, really good at just a few things and you will rise to world-class in the work that you do.”

No4: “The victim makes excuses, whereas the leader delivers results. If you recite your excuses long enough you actually hypnotize yourself to believe that your excuses are real.”

“Where in your work life, where in your personal life, where in your health life, where in your spiritual life are you making excuses? And where have you recited those excuses so many times you’ve actually seduced yourself into thinking they are true?”

“You can tell a victim a mile away, they’re all about excuses. They are so frightened because underneath every excuse lives a fear.”

“You have a choice every day when you walk out into the world, you can make excuses or you can deliver results, you can’t do both.”

“Have you fallen for your excuses. Let go of your excuses today because they are costing you your fortune and they are costing you your ideals and they are costing you your gifts being presented to the world.”

“The world needs more heroes than ever before why wait for them when you have it in you to become one of them.”

No5: “The victim is a taker, whereas the leader is a giver. There are a lot of people who are stuck in scarcity, and that’s another hallmark of the victim, it’s scarce. They’re always thinking about competition, their ego is screaming so loudly that their genius cannot be presented to the world.”

“The victim is a taker. Victims give little value to their company, little value to their customers, and little value to the marketplace, but hope to get an abundance of money or prestige as possible. And that’s a recipe for failure.”

“The leader is a giver. The leader understands that the marketplace rewards value delivery. If you want to make more money, give more value. If you want to achieve more respect in your marketplace, help more people. And it’s a fundamental shift from the taker which is all about scarcity to the giver or leader, which is all about generosity.”

“Give. Ask yourself this question every morning, how can I deliver as much value to as many people as possible?”

“The victim is so caught up in their victim story that they can not see it’s their own behaviour creating the results of their lives.”

“Life doesn’t give you what you want, life gives you what you earn.”

“The victim is so good at blaming, blaming their boss, blaming the economy, blaming their past, blaming their parents, they don’t have the absolute personal responsibility to look in the mirror and say, I have the life not that I want, but the life that I have created.”

“Where can you recreate you life so that you can build a better life.”

“Turn off the TV and forget about relentless entertainment. To have what very few have, you’ve got to do what very few people do.”

“We want to do iconic things in the world but we also want an easy life.”

“You can’t have a world class life and do the things that victims do. That just doesn’t make any sense.”

“It’s dangerous to leave your comfort zone but that’s where all your treasures live.”

“Stop lying to yourself  and develop an intimacy with your excuses to identify what you are not doing. Take a good hard look at where you’re making excuses. We grow up the day we shift from making excuses to taking personal responsibility for the way our lives look.”

“Execute. The job of a leader is less talk, more do. To translate your ideals into execution.”

“There’s a lot of talkers in the world. They don’t execute.”

“Don’t tell us what you’re going to do, show us what you’ve done.”

“If you practice executing long enough you’re going to be world-class at execution. But if you practice talking and not doing, that is what you will be world-class at talking.”

“Where you’re winning in life reflects what you’ve been practising.”

“Go to sleep earlier. Early to bed, early to rise is a very wise idea. Go to sleep a little earlier and get up at 5am.”

“As you begin your day, so you craft your life.”

“Leaders get fresh air, it creates a pharmacy of mastery, your mindset gets elevated.”

“Detox the negativity of your life, whether it be news, toxic people, toxic environments, and toxic influences, because your environments do shape your psychology.”

“Install a mentality of world-class. You’ve got to clean out your limiting beliefs and your psychological sabotage.”

“Mindset along with heartset, healthset, and soulset is needed to be world-class.”

“Do the work required internally, the deep architectural, archaeological digging so that your ego and your selfishness and your weaker nature starts to become less noisy and your true nature, that interior hero, not the victim but the leader starts to dominate your interior life.”

“Interior empires precede exterior empires.”

“Live for a cause that’s larger than yourself. Know your mighty mission.”

“Real leadership is about who you’re becoming and how many people you’re helping.”

“It doesn’t matter what happened in your past, you’ve got a brilliant future ahead of you if you make the right choices. Shift from being a victim to being a leader.”

“You still have it in you to make tomorrow, this year and the rest of your life pure art.”

5 Great Pointers On Achieving Success 

Follow Your Passion

Success does not come overnight, it takes a lot of hard work and passion to reach the desired goal and dream. It requires strong dedication, hard work, constant improvement, and sometimes luck. If you are not doing what you love, then you are bound to give up and fail. Only those who have a great passion for something they love, will continue, and strive hard to move on and achieve greatness. It should be something you are willing to sacrifice and dedicate your life to. Every day, every week, and every hour of the day should be dedicated to achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find The Correct Balance

Life is all about finding the right balance. When you find the right balance, only then will you see success around you and within you. Balance your time, spend time with your family and friends. Allocate time to achieving your goals and targets. Look after your health, exercise, and eat well. Life is all about finding a balance. Do not sacrifice one thing for another. It is important to find the right balance in life.  

Establish A Routine

Routines are vital when you are trying to succeed. We are taught from a young age the importance of keeping a good routine in life because without a routine you will be a mess and it will become harder for you to do well in achieving your goals and targets. For example, people who have a job, working for a company, these companies have strict routines in place. The reason for this is so that the company performs well and becomes more successful. Even in our daily lives, without routine we will be all over the place. It is proven that a person who has no routine in life, is a person who is very lazy, a time waster and someone who has no goals and ambition in life. Therefore, we should strive to have good routines in our life, as this will lead us to have a better life. 

Learn From Your Mistakes

Successful people have failed many times. It is inevitable unless you are an extremely lucky person, where everything works out for you. But, when starting off, the first few steps are the hardest. Many people who have achieved great things have failed on many occasions. There are many obstacles in front of you that blocks you from reaching the next stage of success. For example, there are many entrepreneurs who have failed in many businesses, until that one business that has made them successful. Without failures and mistakes, we as humans will never learn, therefore make as many mistakes as you can, as these mistakes will lead you to gain more experience and knowledge in achieving your goals and dreams. 

Find Support And Resources

Find yourself a mentor, you need someone who can point you in the right direction to achieve greatness. With the correct help and support, you can achieve even better than you would do by yourself. If a mentor is not available, try reaching out to others in your field. Find people who have already achieved what you plan to achieve, and try and get as much information from them as possible so that you can reach that level of success one day. Networking is important to become successful and bigger in what you are trying to accomplish. Reaching out to people will allow you to grow further. It will allow you to find out information that you did not even know you needed. Therefore, speaking out and finding the right support and resources will push you to the next level. 


To summarize, to achieve success, you must be wise and bold. A person who does not try and is lazy in life will go nowhere. You cannot just dream and expect everything to fall perfectly in front of you. You must work hard to get results. We should analyze those who have achieved greatness, by following in their footsteps. Only then can we crawl, walk, and then achieve our own success. Remember, success does not come overnight, it begins with baby steps, and when you are established, you will see the greatest successes.

How I Eat For Free Using Instagram



How I Eat For Free Using Instagram

To start eating for free, you need to have a popular Instagram account that will grab the attention of the restaurants you plan to reach out to.

Having an account that is well put together and the pictures being posted on Instagram posts being of high quality, and building visual interest is very important.

When reaching out to the restaurants, it’s important that you share how your influence and connection with your followers can benefit the restaurant and the food that they are preparing.

A restaurant in Melbourne said that after it was shared on the restaurant gained popularity and it’s income greatly increased following the Instagram post.

Reaching out to restaurants is also ideal for eating for free anywhere you want to go. After getting an invitation to eat at restaurants it is extremely important to reach out after and thank the person or people who made it possible.

This is a way to show the people you are dealing with that they know you are serious and will reach out again in the future because of it. Building a relationship after initially getting an invitation to eat at a place is ideal for making yourself known and making more connections with the people and friends that they work with.

Part of the deal you make with the restaurants is that you’ll post jaw-dropping images or videos of their foods, ones that will grab the attention of followers who can potentially visit their restaurant to get a bite to eat. This is exactly what I do – Sean Kelly of @delicious on Instagram.

I share this content which helps bring exposure of restaurants to my followers and allows me to eat for free on a consistent basis. When I eat at all these different restaurants, neighboring restaurants see the business increase and they want the same.

Not only do I benefit the business that I am helping, but I am also promoting my services – showing other businesses that I can perform in the social media world.

A large part of becoming a successful influencer is being able to prove yourself. If you promise a business that you’ll bring in ‘X’ amount of business from your account, you should live up to it or go over that amount.

Being able to show other client’s proof that you will live up to your business quota or bring in more, in the end that will bring in even more clients for them and gain more people for you to work with.

Same Game, New Look – Sports Highlights



Same Game, New Look - Sports Highlights

It’s become a tradition. Sit down, turn the TV on and watch the game. Only the lucky few are able to go see them in person. Sports have been around for centuries, and as time progressed and their popularity increased, fan bases grew exponentially. As the media began to cover sports, few stations soon gained a monopoly. These became the main places to get all your sport news.

Up until recently, the opinions shared about sports were largely those of mainstream reviewers. As the popularity of social media services such as Instagram and YouTube increases, more people are given the opportunity to make their opinions known. One person whose opinion has gained much more traction is Daniel Padron, the face behind @sportshighlights on Instagram.

I had the opportunity to meet Daniel Padron and find out how he has managed to be heard in such a dominated field. “I came up with the idea when Instagram first started allowing videos rather than just pictures. I would see countless highlights every night watching games during the Big 3 era and I believe that inspired me to start posting highlights” Padron explained.

What started off as a fun pastime has now grown into an audience of 1.7 Million, that continues to increase by the thousands daily. “I didn’t know if people would like or care about my opinion when I started, but I always wanted to be an analyst or reporter for ESPN, so I just gave it a shot” he explained.

Padron started with just his friends following him, however as people began liking, commenting, and tagging others on his posts, his page gained popularity. The engagement he received only helped his posts be seen more. Padron was not only pleasantly surprised to see that many people agreed with his opinions; he was also interested in how people disagreed. This line of direct communication from Padron to his audience separated him from analysts on TV.

Although people can still give their opinions to mainstream reporters, @sportshighlights works to make it a more immersive experience. For instance, if Daniel sees that many people are interested in a particular team or player, he is able to make an effort to post more about it.

Although the experience is slightly more tailored, all teams are reported. One of the best qualities about @sportshighlights is that it had created a medium through which fans from all over the world can exchange opinions and discuss games. With a quick read through the comments, a person is able to see the same highlight through multiple points of views. This feature alone is what draws many audience members in.

Despite the fact that the same mainstream reporters and analysts are featured on TV, @sportshighlights has given sports fans a whole new experience. With the newfound ability to comment and discuss plays with anyone, Sports Highlights has successfully brought fans together and given the same game a fresh new look.
