Are you ready to hear the truth about the Leader of the Future?

They’re not just any ordinary leader – they’re a force to be reckoned with, a true trailblazer in every sense of the word.

Now, some may say that a man is the one who calls the shots, but let me tell you something: it takes more than just testosterone to succeed. The Leader of the Future understands the power of balance – that it’s not just about making decisions, but making the right ones.

And to do that, they need to tap into their feminine side. That’s right, folks – a delicate balance between masculinity and femininity is the secret sauce to successful leadership.

But it’s not about gender. The Leader of the Future is all about tapping into their innermost self – their strengths, weaknesses, and everything in between. It’s about being aware of what makes them tick, and using that knowledge to guide their decisions.

So buckle up, folks, because the Leaders of the Future are not just leaders – they’re is a game-changers. They’re the ones who will revolutionize the world with their bold ideas, their fearless approach, and their unwavering commitment to doing what’s right. NOT what is easy! But what is RIGHT!

Are you ready to join the ranks of the Leader of the Future?

Are you ready for a truth bomb? Extreme masculinity is so last century. It’s primitive, outdated, and frankly, just plain boring. You know what’s way cooler? Being a leader who knows how to tap into their feminine side.

Think about it – the history books are littered with stories of men who thought they could conquer the world with brute force alone. But guess what? They failed. Miserably. Because they forgot one key thing: balance. The most successful leaders are the ones who know how to use both their masculine and feminine qualities to their advantage.

So let’s get one thing straight – being in touch with your emotions, caring for others, and showing concern doesn’t make you weak. It makes you a freaking superhero. A leader who knows how to balance his masculine and feminine qualities is unstoppable. He has a greater chance of success in every area of his life, from business to relationships and beyond than the rest of the pack from the previous century.

And here’s the best part – this isn’t just for dudes. Women who embrace their masculine qualities are total bosses too. In fact, most of today’s female leaders know how to tap into both sides of themselves to create a truly balanced and aware leadership style.

So if you’re ready to take your leadership skills to the next level, it’s time to embrace your inner superhero. It’s time to be the leader who knows how to conquer the world with heart, soul, and a healthy dose of kickassery. Are you ready to join the ranks of the most aware leaders out there?


Listen up, folks – I’m about to drop some truth bombs that will blow your mind. You know what’s been holding us back all this time? Our unbalanced lives. We’ve been living in a world that glorifies extreme masculinity or extreme femininity, but the real magic happens in the sweet spot in between.

I’m talking about a state of being that’s so freaking awesome, it’s almost like you’re living in a fairytale. It’s called a peak experience, and it happens when you’re perfectly balanced between well-developed masculinity and well-developed femininity.

This isn’t some woo-woo nonsense, either. It’s science, baby. When you’re perfectly balanced, your heart and your mind open up and you become a powerhouse. Love, wisdom, and natural humor flow from you like a fountain.

And here’s the best part – balance is the key to getting everything you want in life. You want to reach your goals? You want to make your dreams a reality? You need to embrace the power of balance.

The new paradigm is all about wholeness and inclusivity. It’s about embracing all parts of ourselves – the masculine and the feminine, the light and the dark – and using that knowledge to create a life that’s awesome.

So if you’re ready to live your best life, it’s time to embrace balance. It’s time to tap into the power of your masculine and feminine qualities and create a miracle. Are you ready to experience a peak experience? Let’s do this!


We need a lot of A’s to be Great Leaders.


10 As of great leadership

Agenda, Awareness, Assertiveness, Action and Authenticity.

Listen up, people – I’m about to drop some serious knowledge bombs that will change your freaking life. You want to live a life of passion? You want to attract passionate followers who hang on your every word? Then you need to have an agenda.



That’s right, I said it. Having a clear agenda for your life and aiming for your ultimate purpose is freaking crucial. It’s what will give you the drive and focus you need to achieve your wildest dreams.

And let me tell you, when you find your ultimate purpose, it’s like a fire that burns inside you. You will be unstoppable! You’ll have so much passion, you could scare people away if you’re not careful. But here’s the secret – learning to relax into your passion is key.

So aim for the blinking stars, people. Set your sights on the highest purpose of your life and let that be your guiding light. It will give you direction and purpose like you wouldn’t believe.

And here’s the best part – when you’re living your life with purpose and passion, you’ll attract followers who are just as freaking passionate as you are. They’ll be drawn to you like moths to a flame, hanging on your every word and cheering you on every step of the way.

So what are you waiting for? Get out there and create your AGENDA. Find your ultimate purpose and let your passion burn bright. The world is waiting for you, and your amazing agenda!


Listen up, leaders! If you want to be on top of your game, you gotta be aware. And I’m not talking about just being awake – I’m talking about waking up to higher and higher levels of awareness.

Let me tell you something – most leaders are clueless about what’s going on in their own teams. They’re acting solely on what they think is going on, and they think that what they think is real!

But there are levels to this awareness game, people. The first level is inner awareness – you gotta know the difference between what’s real and what’s just in your mind. Most people can’t do this!

The second level is group awareness – this is where you get in touch with what’s going on in your team, your company, or your family.

But it doesn’t stop there, people. You gotta be aware of the city limits, the nation, and even the globe. You can’t make decisions without considering the impact outside your team, your country, or even globally. That’s just common sense.

And here’s the kicker – awareness is one of the doorways to creativity. So if you wanna be creative, you gotta be aware. It’s that simple, people.

So wake the up and start paying attention. Your team, your company, and even the world is counting on you to be aware. Don’t let them down.


So, champions! Let’s talk about assertiveness – it’s all about being positive, appreciative, and respectful in your communication, while also being exact and clear about what you want.

When you’re assertive, you do what you say and say what you do. No beating around the bush or playing games – you get straight to the point and own it.

But here’s the thing – being assertive doesn’t mean being a bully. No way, freaking Jose. You gotta respect others and their opinions. Assertiveness is all about standing up for yourself while also respecting the boundaries and feelings of others.

So next time you’re communicating with someone, be assertive. Be positive, appreciative, respectful, and exact. Say what you mean, and mean what you say. And don’t forget to respect the opinions and feelings of others. That’s what assertiveness is all about, champions!


Hey there, action-takers and go-getters! Let’s talk about the power of taking action and executing like a boss!

Listen up, champions – talking is easy, but action is what separates the leaders from the followers. You can talk all day about your plans and your goals, but if you don’t take action, you’ll never achieve anything!

And that’s where execution comes in. Successful leaders don’t just talk the talk, they walk the walk! They put in the work, they make the tough decisions, and they execute on their plans with precision and passion.

But don’t just take my word for it – look at some of the most successful leaders in history. From Elon Musk to Oprah Winfrey, these legends didn’t just talk about their dreams, they executed on them with determination and drive!

So next time you’re thinking about your goals and plans, remember – action speaks louder than words. Don’t just talk about it, DO IT! And execute like a champion!


Are you aware that spoken words are only a fraction of the message you convey? That’s right! Your unspoken language, like body language, tone of voice, and gestures, also communicates a lot about you. But here’s the catch – if your words are saying one thing, your body language another, and your tone of voice something else, what message do you think you are sending out? Confusing, right? That’s what liars do!

Imagine if all your channels of communication were aligned and saying the same thing. How much more effective and powerful would your message be? You can learn to control and channel your communication channels to create a consistent message. However, if you try to suppress or control a channel that is conveying a different message, you may come off as dishonest and unauthentic.

Instead, embrace your authentic self and learn to understand your channels of communication, including your sub-communication. By being honest, open, and present, you can master the art of authenticity and project a powerful and consistent message that will resonate with your audience. Remember, authenticity is key!

Mastering these five A’s will make you a more balanced person and give you at least five more A’s to master:

Authority, Attention, Attraction, Admiration, Accountability.



AUTHORITY is not just a title or a position. It’s a way of being. It’s about knowing where you’re headed and having the courage to lead others in that direction. True authority is not given, it’s earned through wisdom and authenticity. A leader who knows his agenda and aligns all his communication channels with his goals, commands respect and inspires others to follow. The power of a title alone is nothing without substance. A true leader doesn’t need to boast about his authority because his actions and words speak louder than any title ever could. Real authority is built on trust, respect and integrity, and it takes time and effort to cultivate. Only then can a leader truly claim his place at the helm and guide his team towards success.


Attention is the spark that ignites the fire of success! It’s what you get when your words are like arrows hitting the bullseye of your audience’s hearts and minds. But it’s not just about speaking loudly, it’s about speaking with precision, with purpose, and with impact! It’s about knowing your audience, and speaking their language. Attention is the currency of the modern world, and it’s what separates the leaders from the followers. When you can capture someone’s attention, you have the power to change minds, inspire action, and create lasting change. So, focus on your message, refine your delivery, and unleash the power of attention!


ATTRACTION is the ultimate magnet that draws the world towards you like a moth to a flame. It’s not just about looking good on the surface, it’s about having every part of you perfectly aligned and in sync. When your physical appearance, emotional state, mental clarity, energetic vibe and spiritual grounding are all firing on all cylinders, you become irresistible! But don’t forget, attraction isn’t just about external validation, it’s about attracting the things and people that align with your values, dreams and desires. It requires effort and dedication, and when you’ve done your homework, the world will come knocking at your door. So, get ready to shine and let the universe know that you are ready for everything it has to offer!

This formula is the REAL Law of Attraction!


ADMIRATION. It’s the sweet nectar of success that true leaders don’t seek but attract like bees to honey. It’s the result of consistent and dedicated action towards their purpose, their team, and their community. When leaders lead with integrity, passion, and authenticity, admiration becomes an inevitable byproduct. So don’t chase admiration, chase excellence, and admiration will follow.


ACCOUNTABILITY. It’s time to stop pointing fingers and start taking action! As true leaders, we must embrace responsibility and own up to our mistakes. Instead of playing the blame game, let’s shift our focus to finding solutions and helping others succeed. When a team member falls short, ask yourself, “How can I support them? What could I have done differently?” Let’s lead with humility and a willingness to learn from our failures. Think about it, which type of leader earns your respect? The one who shirks responsibility and casts blame, or the one who steps up, takes ownership, and pledges to do better?

Which Leader does earn your respect? He who says: “It is your fault. You need to do better or find another job!” or the one who says: I’m sorry. I messed up. I’m also to blame here. I will do better next time”.

The choice is clear – let’s choose accountability and earn the respect of those around us. Be the one who get things done the right way and earn your accountability!


The Masculine qualities:
Agenda, Awareness, Assertiveness, Action and Authenticity

in equilibrium with the feminine qualities:
Authority, Attention, Attraction, Admiration and Accountability

will make you:
Appreciative, Attentive and Amazing!

You will become an:
Achiever, Accomplisher, Adventurer, Alchemist and the Author of your own life!

You will be a True Alfa Male! You will be the Answer to people’s questions!

The Leader Of The Future

Picture this: The Leader of the Future. An embodiment of the A’s – Authenticity, Action, Attention, Attraction, Admiration, and Accountability. But wait, we’ve left out Ambition, and there’s a good reason for it. Ambition is often fueled by unmet needs from childhood and can lead to an unbalanced and self-serving leadership style. However, with some self-reflection and understanding, ambition can be transformed into a powerful force – PASSION! And passion is contagious, my friends.

Gone are the days of political left versus right. We need leaders who can lift us up, not drag us down. The old ways of leadership have reached a dead end. It’s time for a new kind of leader to emerge. One who is whole, inclusive of all opposites, and operates from a place of Leadership and Awareness. So let’s leave the old ‘leaders by title’ in the past and welcome The Leader of the Future with open arms.

We are on the brink of an evolutionary leap, where the tried-and-true methods of the past no longer suffice. They’re outdated, ineffective, and impotent in the face of today’s challenges. The reason why? It’s because our survival instincts have historically relied on dividing everything into good or bad, friend or foe, light and dark. But now, we’re at a turning point. We need to embrace a new way of thinking – one that transcends the limitations of this binary approach. Instead of seeing the world through a dualistic lens, we need to start acting from wholeness. And that means letting go of everything we thought we knew and embracing creativity and openness. Are you ready to take this evolutionary leap and create a brighter future?

This kind of Leadership is a dormant superpower that lies within every single human being, waiting to be awakened. You, my friend, have the potential to become the Leader of the Future, the Leader of your own life. It’s time to take ownership and responsibility for our own destiny. We can no longer wait for others, including governments, to make decisions that shape our lives. We have to take charge, and we have to do it now.

This is an Awesome, Awful lot of A’s and in the end, there is one very important thing that is more important than A’s: EMPATHY. Oh… That was not an A! That was an E! Guess we can’t be that perfect after all!

When you master these qualities, empathy comes naturally and effortlessly. It’s like a free gift that you get just for being an awesome, authentic, accountable, attentive, attractive, and admirable leader. So, are you ready to awaken your dormant leadership superpower and become the Leader of the Future?
