No Surrender! The Burning Heart, Survivor

February 16th, 2014 No comments

You couldn't tell from my love of the Rocky movie series that my interest in boxing is near zero. Rocky is not so much about boxing, as it is about what it takes to overcome; what it takes to achieve success and victory even against long odds.

Consider the lyrics to this song, supplied by the same person who did the montage for the video above.

While all of it is powerful, Survivor's lyrics in the third paragraph below are particularly packed with meaning. Ponder, enjoy, then just do it.

Burning heart 

Two worlds collide, rival nations
It's a primitive clash, venting years of frustrations
Bravely we hope against all hope, there is so much at stake
Seems our freedom's up against the ropes
Does the crowd understand?
Is it a East vs. West, or man against man
Can any nation stand alone?

In the burning heart, just about to burst
There's a quest for answers, an unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night, rising like a spire
In the burning heart, the unmistakable fire, in the burning heart

In the warrior's code, there's no surrender
Though his body says stop, his spirit cries never
Deep in our soul a quiet ember
Knows it's you against you
the paradox that drives us on
It's a battle of wills, in the heat of attack
It's the passion that kills
The victory is yours alone

In the burning heart, just about to burst
There's a quest for answers, an unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night, rising like a spire
In the burning heart, the unmistakable fire

In the burning heart, just about to burst
There's a quest for answers, an unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night, rising like a spire
In the burning heart, the unmistakable fire

In the burning heart, just about to burst
There's a quest for answers, an unquenchable thirst
In the darkest night, rising like a spire
In the burning heart, the unmistakable fire
In the burning heart.

Habit Forming

April 6th, 2012 No comments

First you form your habits, then your habits form you. This maxim is a powerful truism. It cuts to the heart of why forward looking manufactured housing businesses and associations are or should be focused on developing the best habits, perceptions and beliefs of their team members.

In working with many companies in ownership, consulting, leadership or outreach roles, I've seen over the years numerous examples of people in our Industry – working in organizations like yours – that did not fully believe in our product. The doubting team person or their supervisor may not have realized how their perception impacted their work.

But it does.

One's perceptions always impacts what we say, and what we do. So perceptions influence our habits. Habits form the person. The person's habits forms their activity. Those activities produce – or not – the desired results.

Why does one company in a market do better than another?

Why does one person in a company do better than another?

Arguably, the better the perceptions and the better the habits, the better the performance. It really is as simple as that.

This is why identifying and forming the right perceptions and the right habits – the right activities done the proper way – creates better results for some than others.

So as owners, leaders and managers, if you want success, you want to develop and implement positive perceptions and proven systems which are habit forming. By forming the right habits, then you form the right results. ##
