REBELLION: The Guts

REBELLION: The Guts

We can do a lot more than we think. Each week we’ve highlighted a hardcore Rebel truth.  As we head into Week 4, let’s recap, superstars! WEEK ONE: The TAKE-BACK! The greatest successes are born out of passion. We took our power back… instead of focusing on ways others think we should look, feel and act, we highlighted reasons to crush that resonate with us. WEEK TWO: The GRIND! The road to great success is paved with HARD WORK.  We accepted this hardcore truth and embraced the challenge. WEEK THREE: The ZONE!   Those who succeed develop the ability to focus and drown out the doubts.  It’s up to us to keep our eye on the prize. In WEEK FOUR, our Rebel truth is this: Crushing goals requires THE GUTS to face fears. Being GUTSY is the ability to turn toward risk and say, I’VE GOT THIS.

Why is it called The ONE Force?  As we mentioned in The Zone, a singular focus is needed in order to crush our toughest goals. When Sidney Crosby gears up to hit the puck, is he thinking about a pepperoni pizza or what’s happening on Game of Thrones? Is he calling a buddy to set up a coffee date and reminding himself to make a hair appointment whilst skating about? No! It’s safe to say that the only thing he thinks, sees, feels is that puck. He’s using The ONE Force; his eye is 100% on the prize in that moment. Build “ONE Force” Muscle. Life is extremely busy and very full of distractions.  This is one of the toughest Rebel Superpowers, so we need to be kind to ourselves here. It’s going to take time to become a serious pro at locking down our ability to FOCUS and get into The Zone, but we CAN do it.  Start small and remember, these tips are here for us to use for life.  Come back to your Rebel Superpowers again and again for reminders and motivation.
