I want to get started on a week of talking about real tragedy in our world. Mostly these are things that are starting to piss me off as an American. I want to use this week to talk about how the real solutions to the problems in America today start with the entrepreneur or, should I say, those who create America every day.
I have noticed on my blog and on many things that are going on in the world and it has started to get to me that so many people are not taking real responsibility for their own actions.
Yes, we had some tragedy in out country in the past week, over the past few months and the past year. Many talk about supposed “fixes” but they are not looking at the real solutions, just the excuses they use.
While my blog is one to help entrepreneurs get up and take action, to create a better business and life, I also use this blog to share my Rock ‘n’ Roll Keys to Business Success. This week I’m going to use one of those keys as my weekly topic.
Rock ‘n’ Roll singers have used their songs, images and resources to make changes in the world. Well that is what entrepreneurs do also. We use our businesses to build tools that shape a better world and better life for those who want it.
This week I may piss off a few people. It may seem like I’ll come down hard on CNN, ABC, CBS, FOX and other news media, but it’s not them who are the problem. It may seem like I am slamming President Obama, congress, or other government officials, but the message is for all of us, not just them.
It will seem like I’m for or against a few things: gay marriage, gun rights, and abortion. But the truth is we are a divided selfish nation that needs to respect those people who help us make this a great nation.
I might curse some at my fellow Christians and kick a few atheists in the pants. But we need to start knowing what we believe and stop forcing others to believe what we do. Faith is ours; we choose it or we reject it. That is PERSONAL. We influence others by the way we live our lives and by our actions, not by trying to force them to fit into our personal molds.
Last we are going to chat about the REAL action that must be taken, so you have been warned: if this week’s posts piss you off, great! Take action in one of two ways:
1. Sit on your butt and keep doing the same thing: nothing.
2. Take the anger and use it to look in the mirror, start fixing you and let others fix themselves.
Welcome to America. It’s time to stand up and make changes. Real entrepreneurs are the ones who will change this world. Are you in?
