How often do you get goose bumps? Not the kind you get when you walk out of the shower...or even the kind you get when you watch a creepy movies and something moves quickly across the screen. Instead, I'm talking about the kind of goose bumps that come from doing something really special, really different...
In a marketplace that is rife with, "I can do that, too," we all too often struggle to elevate passed what is safe, what is not too risky. But in a world where mediocre fails in a second, perhaps there is more to taking a stand than first thought. Survival, in this new world (and new economy), may not be an option anymore if you just "do enough."
Here's an idea: Maybe taking a stand for what you believe in...what you are most passionate about...is the ONLY way to survive.
By taking the bold step forward and saying (my apologies to Network) "I’m mad as hell and I'm not gonna take it anymore" at least once, you may find that it's a goose bump-inducing, risk-taking step that will catapult you into areas of success that just weren't available when you settled for just doing enough to cover your trail - or just enough to get by.
So what are you passionate about? Have you taken a stand for what stirs you? Could now be the time where you get goose bumps for something other than the cold air hitting your skin after a warm shower?
Could now be the time you take a passionate stand for what you believe in because it is right...not because it is safe?
