ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Raza Aziz is an author, speaker, educator and a coach who inspires individuals to bring more of their uniqueness, their strengths and their passions to their environment, with the intention to help others and create a space of breakthrough performance and productivity.
Although He has been an avid reader of business, leadership and personal development books, he warrants his personal growth to 5 events in his life: 1 – his accidental transition to a Training & Development career; 2 – the birth of his daughter Aleeza; 3 – being a coach in the Self-Expression and Leadership program at Landmark Education 4 – his participation as a coach, trainer and team leader in Team UNITED International – a training and development team to help individuals operate a business from home. 5 – And finally, the relentless support of his wife Tazeen as he transitioned into the entrepreneurial world.
He has immersed himself in the study of human potential to help people be, do and have everything in their life as an expression of themselves. He dreams of a world where we take responsibility for not only knowing ourselves but also take responsibility to bringing all of our goodness to the world; to make it an inspirational place for us and our legacies.
In late 2013, as he was coaching and training 100s of individuals worldwide, Raza wanted to know why he was experiencing complete clarity in why, how and what he was doing, yet the resources he had utilized could not serve others. Why did he feel invincible and ready to face circumstances head-on and other powerful, educated, more experienced individuals felt defeated?
Using his funnel system, his recommendations and step by step guidance his clients experienced a new outlook on life; they became more engaged in the areas of life important to them and naturally stepped into the performance zone that helped them grow personally, spiritually and/or financially.
This journey also led Raza to seek out knowledge, mentors, and coaches that could help him solve the human potential puzzle. His advisors now consist of individuals who have shared the stage with Anthony Robbins, Les Brown, Bob Proctor, Sir Richard Branson, and many well-known personalities.
Today, Raza has taken his cause and mission of true expression to the world. Through this book, his speaking engagements and workshops, he is spreading the message of Self Discovery as a source to leap into The Performance Zone.
The concept of BE – DO – HAVE has been introduced in many variations in many books, seminars and personal development workshops. The concept states that it takes a certain kind of a person with a certain mindset (BE), to take the actions necessary (DO) to produce certain results (HAVE). So if you want to drive performance in any area of your life, learn to impact the BEing.
This is where we have heard many clichés like: You have to have belief; you need to have faith; maintain a positive attitude; be responsible and accountable, etc….and rarely anyone really teaches how. How do you build or alter beliefs? What is the makeup of a belief? How do you get to the point where you are driven by faith? Is it just a matter of reading affirmations and reading self- help books?
Do you find yourself asking these questions?
Why do I make the decisions that I do?
What drives me?

Why is my work draining my energies?
Why am I not full-filled at home and at work?
