The price that comes with listening to our Lizard Brain and being afraid of the resistance from within is gut wrenching.
I’ll use myself as a perfect example since who better to use ,
My passion in certain areas of products, innovation, lifestyle , food and culture runs deep, so deep I cannot sit or contain my bubbling over excitement. I hope nothing more than to “infect” my listener or audience with something MORE. Something special and the beauty for me is that this is hard wired into my DNA. It cannot be replicated on demand. It cannot be scripted and practiced. It cannot be anything except sweating, heart racing, running out of breathe , passion.
If you have read my blog posts or any of my tweets you will see what is not staged for acceptance or positioned for promotion. It’s as @dSivers famously blogged ” Hell yes or no”
This is when you must. I must. I shall. TAKE THE LEAP. ONLY DO IT. START. SHOW YOUR WORK.
ultimately I have hidden behind the lizard brain and the resistance all of my career rationalizing it’s being a acceptable action ( non action) in the lack of funding.
To that I open my eyes, my network I expand with those in a like “growth Mindset” the money is searching for me ( you). The POWER comes once we realize money is a vehicle and that the premium is Passionate ideas- PURPLE COWS
@altMBA is the handiwork of a icon and literary mentor to me already- http://sethgodin.typepad.com
I recommend awaking through reading. Awakening through podcasts and YouTube as well!
Next blog I will post a Top 5 in each that have and are empowering me to version 2.0 ( coming soon)
No longer will I sell my most precious asset/ talent for a check. No longer will I deal with those that simply do not GET IT and never will.
Those who beat a passion to death and persecute any passions not aligned with there plan.
Life is way to short to COMPRIMISE integrity
Be REMARKABLE YOU ARE MORE EXTRODINARY THAN YOU REALIZE. YOU CAN DO SOMETHING GREAT. YOU CAN GIVE. YOU CAN BE SPECIAL TO SOMONE AND THOSE THAT DONT SEE THAT REALLY DONT MATTER ANYWAY.
