What inspired you to write A Path to Excellence?
Being told you are not good enough because of your creed, nationality, religion, sexuality, gender, and other unjust biases and then finding out that you are, awakens you into a world full of dreams, joy, and fulfillment. I wrote A Path to Excellence because millions, if not billions, of people accept mediocrity as a way of living without questioning what stops them from reaching their most excellent potential today and every day.
In the book, you focus on a new framework called The Octagon Of Excellence™ . Can you explain this?
You are the only one who can decide how much you want to enhance your mental, emotional, spiritual, family, relationship, social, career/business, and financial performance. This alone puts you in a position to direct the course of your life and excel. With The Octagon Of Excellence™, I outline the eight essential elements of human excellence and how to apply them consistently and continuously to overcome frustrations, obstacles, and pains to climb greater heights. In a nutshell, this book is a blueprint to break barriers you’ll encounter going through the ever-evolving life cycles and improve yourself in every aspect of life.
How did your background and upbringing impact who you are today?
I’ve had the vision to empower, heal and positively impact the lives of others since I was seven years old. I was born in 1969 in Gostivar, a city in the Republic of Northern Macedonia. Early in life, I experienced abuse, bullying, illness, inequality, and injustice because I was of a different creed from what the perceived societal norms were. I’ve lived through a civil war and homelessness, but I never chose to be a victim. I invested in my education and graduated with honors from one of the top five UK universities. I used the 2008 financial crisis to venture into entrepreneurship, become a qualified transformational life and business coach, learn CBT, and various healing modalities. Since then, I’ve written four award-winning books, become an internationally recognized TEDx speaker, delivered over 25,000 coaching and training hours, and become a self-made millionaire.
You have pioneered several trademarked methodologies in human development including the TJS Method: ALARM™®, Behavioural Change Principles®, The Unfakeable Code® Principles and now The Octagon Of Excellence™. What makes these methods stand out compared to other self-development frameworks?
I felt compelled to share proven strategies and principles I’ve used to succeed and teach others to do the same. In 2015, I founded TJS Cognition Ltd, a company dedicated to exploring, expanding, and evolving the frontiers of human awareness and potential.
Through my frameworks, I teach people how to transform their disempowering thought patterns and beliefs into life breakthroughs that empower them to become a master of their life and destiny. Entrepreneurs, CEOs, global leaders, Hollywood A-list celebrities, and people from all professions consult with me to unleash their magnificence, excel in all critical areas of life, and grow to their fullest potential. Organizations seek my expertise to engage, develop and empower their leaders and teams, thus improving efficiency, productivity, performance, profits, and the overall organizational and business culture and wellbeing.
