Standing by your principles in those situations when it is the risky and unpopular thing to do—is the test of a change agent’s mettle. I’m sure we all remember the Gap logo debacle.  Unfortunately, Gap rescinded their decision in the wake of public opinion. Don’t be afraid to take a risk and stand strong. Nobody is going to die over a marketing campaign. Prepare to live your brand promise in good times and bad.

Fear stops most people. Change agents welcome it. Get past your fear. Act with confidence and be willing to be a beginner.  Leaders learn quickly, that many of the changes they seek won’t be right the first time.  Three seconds is the difference between doing and not doing something.  You stand in the way of a winning attitude when you refuse to be a beginner. Being willing to be a beginner is how you get past your three seconds of #fear.  And change agents welcome that fear.

That’s the mental edge you need. One mistake or set back does not mean total failure. Create tension. Create change.

I believe most leaders and employees know when their old ways of doing business must change or their business will die, yet they don’t act.  What’s holding you back?  Today I stand on the frontier of change. Are you ready to run the gauntlet? #GO!
