Potential is a priceless treasure, like gold. All of us have gold hidden within but we have to passionately dig to get it out.
- Joyce Meyer
Adapted from Leonardo Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, this is the first of two sister illustrations. Here, you see a male figure and 22 sunrays – one for each chapter of the accompanying tools in the book ‘Ignite Your Potential’ – and the resulting burst of light signifies the release of your potential.
Be humble in your confidence yet courageous in your character.
- Melanie Koulouris
An eagle, strong and proud, flies towards luminous Ra, the Sun God. Ancient Egyptians believed Ra to be the creator of the sky, the earth, and the underworld, and the eagle is often seen as the bird with the strongest connection to the divine inner strength because of the great heights it can reach. When you are confident and believe in yourself, you can reach greater heights.
Self-control is strength. Right thought is mastery. Calmness is power.
- James Allen
The strong, calm, warrior woman demonstrates temperance. The flames surrounding her represent the emotional fluctuations that can interrupt your state of serenity. The warrior is patient, by having complete control of herself she can extinguish those destructive inner forces which would otherwise sabotage her calm.
Weakness of attitude becomes weakness of character.
- Albert Einstein
Linked closely to a natural inner confidence, the theme of the eagle continues. It has now reached the bright sun and grasps it firmly in its talons, symbolic of the attitude the eagle will carry forth to shine on others. A hint of the Vitruvian Man represents the balance between an ideal demeanor, a tranquil heart, and unbiased perspective.
Reading is to the mind what exercise is to the body.
- Joseph Addison
The central figure is the epitome of wellness. The Book of Knowledge and the lotus flower indicate total wellness of body, mind and spirit. An intricate pattern weaved throughout captures the idea that a consistent approach is required to maintain this overall balance. The figure’s third eye, wide open in the shape of a celestial body, is a reminder of the amazing possibilities that exist within you.
Realise deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. Make the Now the primary focus of your life.
- Eckhart Tolle
The most obvious symbol for the ability to live in the moment is a clock. It creates a path that winds and weaves into the future, from the present, trailing backwards into the past. The power of Now is represented by a bright ruby; a significant reminder of how precious each moment is. The Future spirals into the gaping hollowed sleeves of the anonymous figure, and in doing so, enters a dark cavern that represents the unknown.
If you’re looking for that one thing that will change your life, look in a mirror.
A butterfly, seen from a side perspective, casts a reflection in a watery mirror, symbolising individual flow. The vibrant colour is a reminder that external beauty exists and radiates to its fullest when met with intrinsic light. The Scales of Justice feature quietly in the background as a nod to the traditional Tarot and a reminder that balanced judgement comes from the truth.
There are two primary choices in life: to accept conditions as they exist, or accept the responsibility for changing them.
- Denis Waitley
We see a magnificent, detailed close-up of the wolf: capturing an ancient Indian proverb about the battle of choices that lives within us all. In this instance, the wolf’s eye shimmers as it ponders its current state, reflecting the duality of our good and bad choices. The contradictory forces of dark and light are highlighted in the yin and yang.
Successful people make decisions quickly (as soon as all the facts are available) and change them very slowly (if ever). Unsuccessful people make decisions very slowly, and change them often and quickly.
- Napoleon Hill
The maze reflects the complex nature of the brain. The lightning bolt fires it into action so it can receive, filter and analyse millions of bits of information in the blink of an eye. Complex equations represent the analytical side of the brain, while explosions of hearts capture the emotional and creative side.
The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.
- Dan Millman
A beautiful pearl can only be formed when an irritant enters the shell of a oyster. Fluid continues to wrap itself around the deposit until the gleaming, perfect, lustrous sphere is formed. The pearl hints that adaptability, no matter the situation, leads to fruitful and valuable outcomes. The chameleon, another of nature’s masters of metamorphosis, clutches the precious gem.
A dream is just a dream. A goal is a dream with a plan and a deadline.
- Harvey Mackay
The dream catcher’s charms suggest differing types of goals: performance, learning, and fulfillment. The idea of the handmade web, filtering out negativity and thoughts that serve to hold us back, is continued in the background in a shadow of intricate beauty and design.
Productivity is never an accident, it is always the result of a commitment to excellence, intelligent planning and focussed effort.
- Paul J Meyer
In our Productivity image, the hourglass represents time – how you value it and use it. Time is your most precious commodity given that once you spend it you will never get it back. The staircase leading to the top of the hourglass signifies that success can be achieved one step at a time. You must keep moving forward towards your goals. The heavy cogs turning in the background represent noise and distraction, yet our focus remains on the hourglass and on our productivity.
Consistent action creates consistent results.
- Christine Kane
The organic rattan target signifies the idea of gaining rhythm through repetitive attempts, finding your stride, and ultimately succeeding. The target hangs on a locked door that is adorned with a repetitive pattern. From the handle hangs the Key of Consistency. We can see prior efforts of the marksman through the wear and tear of the target. Never the less, the bullseye, now loaded with strikes, highlights his consistent effort and practise. He got there in the end.
Creativity is a wild mind and a disciplined eye.
- Dorothy Parker
The Goddess-like figure, merging with the boundless potential that exists within the universe, is a reflection of the creative Empress. She gracefully commands forth all forms of creative expression and ingenuity into reality. Her free-flowing locks demonstrative of the notion that there is no right or wrong when it comes to creativity. You just need to let it flow.
You have to do it by yourself, and you can't do it alone.
- Martin Rutte
Collaboration is evident in the animal kingdom. Fish school with similar fish for defence and foraging. The same concept applies to like-minded individuals who work in collaboration; gracefully moving together to find and embrace harmonious, safe, productive flow.
Good timber does not grow with ease. The stronger wind, the stronger trees.
- Douglas Malloch
A ship navigates a path through difficult and challenging waters. At first glance, the course appears to be a wild and treacherous ride, yet it’s a route that’s been consciously mapped by a commanding master. The captain steering the helm of thought knows that by leveraging and stretching all the skills at hand, the route set out will be surmountable. In the distance lies the arrival point of achievement basked in light and calm.
Life has many ways of testing a person's will, either by having nothing happen at all or by having everything happen all at once.
- Paulo Coelho
The tiger has long seen a symbol of overall power and strength. They base their decisions on sharp sight and heightened senses. The tiger fears nothing. Our white tiger’s blue eyes also suit the blue hues of the chakra evolution in the deck. The regal monarch, king or queen of its territory, sits patiently alert guarding the parameters of its fort. A single gem of shining brilliance, the strongest substance known to man, stands out from a subtle diamond pattern and reiterates the facets of personal boundaries and strength.
Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons.
- Jessica Lange
A dandelion floats freely through the air. A journey through the dark backdrop of forest and forage may provoke fear, but this path represents the need for acceptance of things that are beyond our control. The dandelion accepts the wind, irrespective of the force, as it makes its way back to earth to ultimately reseed. The journey may be varied and difficult, but the end result is the same.
A moment of gratitude makes a difference in your attitude.
- Bruce Wilkinson
The traditional “Namaste” is a sign of respect and reverent salutation that translates to “bowing to you.” The hands graciously clasped in gratitude are decorated with intricate story patterns of henna: capturing the complex web of total experiences. In the background we see a reference to the traditional Tarot in the form of a glorious, stylised sun. The magnificent swirling rays are the turning tides of peaks and troughs, signifying life’s ups and downs. The grateful hands show appreciation for them all.
Authenticity requires a certain measure of vulnerability, transparency, and integrity.
- Janet Louise Stepenson
The Venetian-styled carnival mask indicates that turning up as the real you is important for integrity and fulfillment. It can be easy to hide beneath a façade, portraying a version in order to fit in. Be aware that the mask cloaking your genuine self may appeal to others, but it only serves to prevent us from experiencing the best elements of life.
Candour is a compliment; it implies equality. It's how true friends talk.
- Peggy Noonan
Ganesha is the patron of wisdom, letters and learning. He captures the concept of mastering the communication skills required in the application of candour. Ganesha’s elephant head makes him an easy figure to identify. The nature of this feature also adds an ideal visual storytelling element signifying the importance of calling out the “elephants in the room.” At the feet of the majestic mammoths, lies the broken shackles of bureaucracy, conditioning, guardedness, fear of judgment, and false politeness which has previously inhibited or rendered the most important conversations and words unspoken. The elephants face each other respectfully as equals.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.
- Maya Angelou
The world is being nurtured by a set of hands that belong to everyone. The world is a celebration of self, harmony with others, and a greater awareness of our choices and their ripple effect.
Dream without fear. Love without limits.
The illustration captures the holistic definition of love: love yourself, love others, love what you do, love your community and environment in addition to the romantic sense of the word. Lovers bonding together become entwined with and a part of the intricate tree of life.
‘The truth of your character is exposed through the choice of your actions.’
– Dr Steve Maraboli
Who we show up as influences the perception of others. We clearly favour characters who bring the light, and who are more saintly and angelic, rather than a devil in disguise.
Passion is born when you catch a glimpse of your potential.
- Zig Ziglar
The second of two sister illustrations, this female Vitruvian Man once again features 22 sun rays, but here they represent the inner soul. This card symbolises the practical, grounded, pragmatic application of the 22 tools covered in the book ‘Ignite Your Potential’.
This Illustration is the culmination of all of the other 25 illustrations combined. Symbolic of our inner soul and feelings. This is a contemporary adaptation of ‘Vitruvian Man’ by Leonardo Da Vinci: representing both the masculine and feminine energy.
