Are you looking for a Role Model?
We all need inspiration, we all need someone to look up to and use as an example. I do not mean someone to copy and replicate. You need to be you, your authentic you, in order to succeed. I am talking about someone who can inspire you to become the person you were meant to be.
Manoj Bhargava is an entrepreneur with net worth of 4 billion dollars. He decided to give 90% of his fortune to charity and research for making the world a better place.
In the short film that follows, you can see what his work has offered so far. In the "shop" that he has created, scientists and innovators have build the "Free Electricity". A bicycle which you pedal for an hour and gives you back electricity for 24 hours. The only side effects, as Bhargava puts it, are you getting stronger and healthier.
Manoj Bhargava was asked what makes a successful entrepreneur, his answer: " Common Sense and a Sense of Urgency."
Common sense comes from your Authentic Self. The way I understand Bhargava's words is that the common sense should stem from you, not from the confining convictions and the "programs" you have downloaded from society while growing up. Common Sense is the answer to the question "What do I want?". Not your mother, your school teacher, your friends or society. What do you want in your heart? Once you figure that out, the common sense is the only way to get to it. "Of course this is what I need to do!" That "A ha!" moment.
Knowing who you are and what you want, finding your voice as we say at The Los Angeles Method, is good but it is not enough. You need action, you need to act on your life. The action comes from the "sense of urgency". How much do you want it and WHY do you want it?
"Achieving my goal is a matter of life and death. If I do not succeed I will lose everything". This is how high the stakes need to be for you. As the story goes: "The tiger was chasing the rabbit. The tiger was running for its food, the rabbit was running for its life. The rabbit won."
What is your goal and why do you want to achieve it?
