Try to think of one of history’s greatest cowards. Did you come up with anybody? What about a hero - someone who disregarded their personal safety to take a massive action they believed in their heart to be right. I bet you could name quite a few of them …
The fact is, no one remembers the cowards. We remember the bold, or better yet, it’s the boldness of others that inspires us to remember. So how can you be bold so that history will remember you were here?
Create a mission statement for your life
Today, we got into some heavy topics. The thing is, there is no cut and dry, black and white paint-by-numbers path to success. And if there was, it wouldn’t inspire anyone to take it. Only people with a mission that drives them take inspiring, bold action. I know you have it in you to be one of them. But it starts with creating your own life mission statement. So get on that.
Being bold together ...
At Newell Strength, our mission is to inspire people to make positive change in their lives. That means we have to be working toward making positive change in our own lives, and we are. But one last thing I wanted to mention, as you write your mission statement and begin taking bold action, remember, you’re never alone. You’re simply bolder earlier on than the person you’ve yet to inspire.
Thanks for listening and be sure to get after it this week. You’re stronger than you know!
