How to Start a Movement -
From this article:
"The formula can be condensed into this:
- You can’t be successful unless you are ON FIRE for your cause.
- Passion drives performance. Feel your cause and let it move you to action.
- Passion is contagious. Mentor others through your actions, words are a dime a dozen.
- Have patience. Passion hears ‘no’ as Not Now.
- Develop and deepen your faith. Trust that what you believe in will have followers. Somewhere. Sometime. If one person believes it, there ARE others.
- Embrace your early followers and empower them to own the passion and the cause. Leadership means stepping aside to enable the growing fire to burn freely.
- Celebrate small victories. New followers are like gold, treat them to a joyous celebration.
- Think allow, not how. Once the fire burns, controlling it can consume you. Know that your passion has ignited a cause and it’s ultimate outcome is driven by your tribe of similarly passionate people.
- Most importantly, be brave.
A world driven by passion is a world on fire for change."
