The pursuit of success can sting

The pursuit of success can be demanding, tough, painful, and tiring… but you know what? The Honey Badger doesn’t care. Nothing will stop it from attempting success.

What about you? How would traits of the Honey Badger increase success in your life?

Act like an adult, not a grown up

Sometimes it seems society’s goal is to produce conforming, non-inquisitive, and apathetic grown-ups. This, of course, is an excellent way to shun both fun and success from life.

The opposite of such a stoic existence is to embody the curiosity, liveliness, playfulness, and spontaneity of a child (and yes, these traits can co-exist with maturity).

Assume the opposite

Too easily and too often we assume our perspectives are the best, most logical, and perhaps only way to interpret the world. But this train of thought is not only fallacious, but perilous. We shut doors of opportunity and growth that we didn’t even know existed. The challenge we face is identifying our own impartial views.

Today’s lesson

Why does this lesson plan strike you as odd? Because in conventional education (chalkboard and all) there is so much structure we come to rely on teachers, leaders, scholars, and a predetermined program to “educate” us.

It’s no question that those who enjoy more, do more, and achieve more are those whose own daily lesson plan reads: “Educate myself.”

More than one answer

This is my tribute of an unaccredited image that spread like wildfire on the internet way back in 2005… and yet I still have not forgotten it. It’s simple, it’s funny, and even though the teacher may not enjoy the same degree of laughter, in some strange way, it’s still, literally speaking, a correct response.

Ideas have a shelf-life

Many times the ideas we have today can have an immediate impact on our personal lives and countless others, but there is no insurance that guarantees a valuable idea today will have the same value tomorrow.

In fact, ideas are a ‘dime a dozen’ – they even multiply as they are applied. But an idea stored away from the world is worthless.

Human rocket fuel

While writing a speech several years ago and reflecting on my entrepreneurial endeavors I noticed something interesting… Not one of my businesses began with a cliché spurt of inspiration. They were birthed as a result of my frustrations and willingness to create a solution.

The rush of inspiration is fun, fast, and extremely powerful, but a BIG mistake too many could-be Mavericks make is waiting to be swept up by a Hollywood injection of divine inspiration. And wait they do.

Budding entrepreneurs often underestimate the power of converting feelings of desperation into fuel for new action. Not satisfied with a product, service, market void, or comment someone made about you? Do something about it.

I’ll even be so bold to say that I believe inspiration is fleeting. Desperation makes for a much better long-term fuel if you have a clear goal in mind.

But whether it be inspiration or desperation, I just hope you’ll jump on board and light the rocket. Your life – and the world – will be better for it.

Get around to it

It’s amazing how clever we can be when dreaming up justifications to delay action, but eventually, life goes full circle. And we either reap the rewards or get bitten in the butt. The people who remain the most productive and fulfilled are those who tighten the loop; those who shorten the circuit between necessary action and follow-through. What have you been delaying? Now is a good time to get around to it. Image code: GETAROUND2IT
