Radical Unapologetic Success

Feb 25, 2021

 The concept of “Radical Unapologetic Success” needs to be unpacked but first, let’s lay out some facts that may shock you. 

First, 76% of people die with the same regret: Not living true to themselves.  Yep, over a quarter of the people you know will lay on their deathbed wishing they would have lived life on their own terms instead of living a life guided by what others expected of them. 

Second, 70% of the relatively small amount of people who do make it to your funeral will decide whether or not to go to the gravesite after the service based on the weather that day. 

With these facts in mind, I have a question for you: What life do you want to live?   

The year 2020 made many of us take a moment and reflect on our lives so far.  Many decided to make real changes when things opened up. 

 My greatest concern is that we don’t make those changes and slowly drift back to our old ways.

By waiting, we risk returning to being busy all the time, trying to live up to others’ expectations, and not listening to that little voice inside of us that is fighting for us to step into our greatness.

 How about a new idea? You don’t wait for things to open back up, for your partner to be supportive, for the market to turn, Q2 to start, or any other factor outside of your control.


 Don’t mistake this for an easy social media quote or a clever bumper sticker. This is an invitation to a way of living! 


Definition: (especially of change or action) relating to or affecting the fundamental nature of something; far-reaching or thorough.

Decide right now that this is the year you allow yourself to live radically, meaning living your life in the way that is best for you. What works for you will most likely be different from someone else.  How you normally do things hasn’t worked but remember that normal is highly overrated. 


Definition: Put forward, or being such without apology or qualification. 

 What causes us to feel like we have to explain or justify every decision we make to anyone around us? Stop. Unapologetic means you don’t need to justify every decision you make. You know what is best for you.  Make a choice to do you, keep choosing you, and let go of trying to make everyone else understand. 


Definition: The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.

 What’s your definition?  Ironically most people want to be successful, yet only a very small handful can articulate what success means for them.  This gap should shock us to the core. Knowing this, also remember that success can mean very different things in even the most similar circumstances of like-minded people.

 To help guide you in shaping what success looks like for you, I’ll share these words:

 “Success is peace of mind, which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to do your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming.” - John Wooden

“Success is liking yourself, liking what you do, and liking how you do it.” - Maya Angelou

 “Success is being a bit better tomorrow than I was today.” - Unknown

 Maybe it is time you wrote your unique definition of success. 

Your Version of Radically Unapologetic Success

 You can choose to listen to that little voice calling you to step into being your own hero. You were born to win, so act like it. You were born to be your own hero, and by being your own hero, you empower others to be their own heroes.
