Bruce and his back story

I enjoy reading biographies and autobiographies. This week I am reading Bruce Springsteen’s self-told story “Born to Run.” So far I am on page 211 of 508.

He is a rock-n-roll singer and leader of his band. You likely have heard of him; he’s considered to be “famous.”

What I didn’t know was what he endured to follow his musical vision.

Fingers sore from his first guitar. Band members stealing or hiding from the law. Moving back in with his parents in his 20’s.

Simultaneously exhilarated and fearful as he recorded his first record… was he a “good enough” musician to gain a following? Or was this a futile attempt?

Each of us has a back-story, a history of experiences that led us to where we are today.

But only the present moment shows in the public eye.

Your rank, your residual check, your fame are all products of your past. Remember to honor the lessons learned in the journey that brought you to this day.

And take another step tomorrow.

I believe in you.

P.S. Networking Times published my article in January 2014. “The Secret To Automatic Income”

Refocus that passion

Seeing celebrations of the Baseball World Series reminds me of an article I read. I can’t remember the author but suspect it was economist Paul Zane Pilzer. The next three paragraphs are my best recollection of that article.

The author observed that people have passion inside themselves. LOTS of passion. They want to display it in a way that is approved by the greater society, especially toward a “winning” cause.

Many cheer for a sports team because it is a society-approved way to use that energy. We humans get an endorphin rush from bonding together in a cause greater than our individual lives. It’s even better if “our” team wins! (And if our team loses, we can commiserate together.)

What if fans took a slice of that passion and applied it to launching and marketing their own businesses? Doing so can be riskier because there is pressure to “win,” and some people deem it is a “selfish” use of energy to spend so much time and energy on an endeavor that benefits “only themselves.” The solo entrepreneur typically lacks large numbers of fans in their early days in business, before experiencing large success.

LYnn here: When distributors join your team, they are learning how to focus at least some of that passion on a project. You are automatically a player or coach on their field, but their proverbial stands might be empty. Be THEIR biggest fan and cheer them on.
