What's your knee-jerk reaction to the word trailblazer?
Does it make you feel amped up and excited? Or does it make you feel less than, like you aren't anywhere CLOSE to being a trailblazer in any aspect of your life?
If you answered yes to the first question, rock on with your bad self.
And if you answered yes to the second question, we feel you and also lovingly call bullshit on that response.
DO IT NOW:
Get out a piece of paper or journal and write down all the ways in which you are going against the grain and doing things YOUR way.
The very nature of entrepreneurship — whether you're doing this full time or not — is that of blazing a trail. You are going against the grain big time, simply by wanting to create something that is your own.
You think differently.
You act differently.
You take risks when others aren't willing to do so.
You see creative solutions where most people see problems.
You feel called to help others.
You are following your passions.
You are a trailblazer.
If you've been digging your heels in on this word and feel like this doesn't apply to you, we want to challenge you to prove yourself wrong. To look for the ways in which you are defying the norm, sticking your neck out there, and doing something that others would be afraid to do.
