This is Steve Down and today I’m in Long Beach, California. Today’s Wealth Wakeup Call is: Wear your heart on your sleeve!
This morning, I asked myself, “Where did these words come from?” Then in a split second Google had the answer. The words, I will wear my heart upon my sleeve were written by William Shakespeare; which can be taken to mean: display your feelings openly, for all to see.
That’s exactly what I do. I wear my heart upon my sleeve. My neighbor, Jeri, has a home business where she handcrafts leather wristbands with custom engraved words. I’m wearing my favorite, right now. It simply has one word that displays my core value. It simply says, “Create.”
I’ve found that I’m happiest when I’m creating something. From an artistic perspective I have very little creative talent. I can’t sing, dance, draw or paint; but one thing I can do is create a new business. I’m most happy while creating my next new business. I believe that you, too, are happiest when you are in such a creative state.
As you wear your heart upon your sleeve, three things happen. One, you make your hearts desire public which strengthens your resolve. Two, it’s a constant reminder of what makes you happy. Three, as others wear it on their sleeve, it creates a culture of like minded people with a common vision or goal that becomes unstoppable.
Over the next few days, I will share with you three companies I’ve created in recent years and the one core value we, as a team, wear on our sleeves. The result is astounding. We are creating a cult following for each company. A company with a cult following becomes unstoppable. Now go out there and create wealth!
