Be Fearless! ~> It’s the focus our Team agreed to embrace in 2014 for Pioneer Outfitters 90th Anniversary in the Year of the Horse. Part of that, I believe, is sharing with you the secret to everything.
You thought I was maybe exaggerating? Nope. It has taken me way too long to figure so many things out for myself not to share it with you right now.
The Secret to Everything
After learning so much in what must be and have been, the most difficult ways and sometimes-dangerous ways possible, the secret itself was uncovered in our focus of Be Fearless! Today’s letter “R” for “Responsible” and “Receptive” brought everything into focus.
First, look at the meanings to the words alone: Responsible is having an obligation to do something or having control over or care for someone, as part of one’s job or role. It is being trusted to do what is right or to do what is expected of you. Receptive is having the quality of receiving or taking in or admitting. Receptive is to be able to be quick to receive knowledge or ideas and to be willing or inclined to receive these.
The Secret to Everything
Everything, as a young adult spreading their wings for the first time, as an adult, as a parent, as a leader as a professional anything; the secret to doing it well and the secret to being the absolute and ultimate best success is found right in the middle of Be Fearless! Responsible & Receptive.
The secret to everything is found in being responsible and receptive. There are so many values and qualities that take us far and well in life. Some of those are: honesty, focus, passion, respect, ability, confidence, clarity, integrity, compassion, engagement, humility, communicative, fearlessness and supportive. Each of them requires us to be responsible, for ourselves as well as those we lead. The kicker, the bonus really is that the more receptive we also are, takes us even beyond getting by comfortably.
Responsibility and receptiveness together are the secret to everything. Holding true to your responsibilities, knowing what is right and good and standing for those things while being receptive to what the world and your own people and team also have to offer simply by being and more by striving creates the force of nature that changes everything.
Be Fearless! Has changed the way I view every day and every obstacle that appears. It has given me the extra fortitude to face every hold-up, every fear and every set back; knowing that it is a challenge I must meet to Be Fearless! in every way. I hope that it has given you extra strength as well, as we explore every meaning it has for us all.
