S10 E37 The Ruler Deep Dive |IBGR | Donna Kunde & Londina Cruz
“We do not remember days, we remember moments.” – Cesare Pavese
The hero’s journey is often seen as preparation for leadership. In modern life, we become the Ruler by taking complete responsibility for our own lives – not only for our inner reality, but also for the way our outer world mirrors our reality.
When we have become too comfortable and stop growing, our world feels like a wasteland. We must allow new life and the budding new hero within us to take a new journey.
The Ruler creates a peaceful and harmonious world by becoming peaceful and harmonious inside.
There are five levels of the Ruler:
Shadow - Controlling, rigid, tyrannical and manipulative behaviors; the ogre tyrant
Call - Lack of resources, harmony, support, or order in our life
Spiral One - Taking responsibility for the state of your life; seeking healing wounds or areas of powerlessness that are reflected in scarcity in your outer life; concerned primarily with your own life or your own family
Spiral Two - Developing skills and creating structures for manifesting your own dreams in the real world as it is; concerned with the good of whatever group or community you belong to
Spiral Three - Fully utilizing all resources – internal as well as external; concerned with the good of society or the planet
Imagine that you are literally the King or Queen of your realm (your life). Let yourself imagine that you can change virtually anything you want, since you are totally in charge. There is, of course, a political process to consider; you may need to convince your “subjects” of the wisdom of your dictates, but begin simply by thinking of what you would like to decree. Start with your domain – your home, your private life, the part of your work life that is within your control. Then imagine yourself writing the new laws, or writing a speech explaining the new policies to your “subjects” and negotiating with the Rulers of nearby kingdoms to gain their cooperation.
Make sure you leave some thoughts in the comment section below. We are interested in continuing the conversation.

Donna Kunde is one of IBGR's founders and started her career in radio at WNTW on it's Sales 2020 Show. In her role as EVP Supply Management she is responsible for day-to-day station operations and the quality of programming - both show topics and OnAir Talent.
She is an internationally recognized Business Coach and Trainer bringing 20+ years’ experience in military leadership. Donna has been a serial entrepreneur for the last 25 years owning a range of businesses experiencing the unique challenges solopreneurs face with small business growth.
In addition to her entrepreneurial background, Donna brings 35 years of academic and applied cognitive and behavioral science experience to the IBGR Network. Her specialty is helping organizations navigate through change, challenge and tragedy. The combination of her intensive study of the mind, plus practical applications in human potential, Donna provides a unique perspective on leadership, personal growth, sales, communication, and team building.
A high point of Donna's training career happened when she accompanied Dr. John C. Maxwell and his team on a country transformation mission. At the request of the Costa Rican government, the Maxwell team successfully trained 15,000 Round Table facilitators in three days, resulting in a 2% transformation of that nation and projected to reach another 60,000 Costa Ricans the following week. Her trademark energetic communication style and teaching skills have earned her a reputation as a highly effective speaker and respected facilitator.
Londina Cruz is an International Trainer, Executive Coach, and Keynote Speaker with the John Maxwell Team and a Strategic Coach with Anthony Robbins. Londina is a part of Global Transformation with the John Maxwell Foundation, training thousands of leaders in Paraguay and Costa Rica to help transform the values and culture of these nations.
She has spent more than 25 years studying, coaching and consulting in personal mastery and human performance techniques. These techniques include emotional and social intelligence trainings that elevate individuals, leaders and their organizations to excel well beyond current standards – offering a dynamic competitive advantage.
Londina has taken a situation that would devastate most individuals, being hit by a drunk driver, and has turned it into her life force. In this accident, Londina sustained a traumatic head injury, broken back and broken neck. The doctors gave her little hope of a normal life. She has now turned this challenge into an extraordinary life of empowering others to turn their fears into freedom and reach their potential.
Mastering her limiting beliefs and overcoming all that doctors had told her, Londina has thrived physically as well.
She has become a Triathlete (competing in a Half-Ironman and medaling in numerous other triathlons), a two-time marathon runner (Nike Women’s in San Francisco and the Marine Corps in Washington), and a cyclist.
She has released 100 lbs. by taking control of her thoughts instead of allowing thoughts to control her.
She knows what it takes to take you and your team from where you are to where you want to be.
