As I was cruising the Inter-coastal waterway in Florida I saw this HUGE boat- named – REBEL.
As soon as I saw the enormity of the boat I was so proud of the person who owned it and ultimately named her.
The ship’s owner had to be somewhat of a REBEL. There is no way anyone can afford a boat like that without having a little rebellious blood in them.
There has been much talk over the last few years about business owners creating a MOVEMENT that enrolls people into their vision and the mutually beneficial relationship that ensues. (You can’t have a long lasting relationship when only one partner benefits).
What is a MOVEMENT without a little REBELLION!!! A rebellion can be defined as an act of open resistance to an established way of doing things.
ENTER THE ENTREPRENEUR… YOU!!!
Many years ago, James Dean, starred in his most acclaimed movie role – REBEL – WITHOUT A CAUSE. He wandered around aimlessly just upsetting the applecart and getting into trouble. WHY? In my opinion – he had NO PURPOSE – no reason to make his way in the world.
What is a SUCCESSFUL Entrepreneur? A REBEL – WITH A CAUSE!!!
A cause that gets them fired up everyday. A cause that makes them have an inner-knowing that gets them up early and compels them to work in to the wee hours of the morning because they say, “I can’t NOT do this!!!”
Your burning desire automatically engages and magnetizes others who want to know what it is that has you so passionately pursuing your cause.
But what if some people don’t get it? PERFECT! You want to be more than a flag-waver. You have to be a zealous advocate for people’s well being. Those who don’t get it won’t play with you anyway.
Those who do get it will be swept up into the vortex of your energy that is transforming the way things are now. They become a part of your movement. They become fellow REBELS.
All because you had the guts to step up and lead them.
Keep your eyes on the prize and I’ll see you on the mountain-top!
It’s where we hold our meetings!
Your fellow Rebel (with a cause)
