YOUR Business Rescue Coach invites you to the movies:

Let’s Stop, Look, and Listen to the Business Lessons
we learn from the Movies…

We receive lessons in the most unique places. Believe it or not, the movies provide wonderful business lessons for us! I enjoy noticing lessons which share what to do, or what not to do, as I find both are of equal value!

What can the movie, “Brave” (2012) teach us about business?

The movie “Brave”, 2012, is a wonderful animated movie of a Celtic Princess, with phenomenally animated curly red hair, coming of age. She is full spirited and loves life. She sees possibilities – at time to her detriment, or perhaps not, as she learns many lessons from the experiences she creates. Definitely a great movie for adults and children alike!

BRAVE’S BUSINESS STRATEGY #1
MAKE SURE YOU KNOW WHO YOUR PARTNERS ARE:  Due diligence for partnerships will serve you well

The Princess wants to gain something that isn’t within her realm. She is tempted to consider something that she hesitates on at one point, and then goes against her better judgment. How often do you just jump into relationships with customers, suppliers, or business allies when it isn’t always the best for you? Slow down, take your time to make sure there is a good alignment from each party.

BRAVE’S BUSINESS STRATEGY #2
SET YOUR INTENTIONS EFFECTIVELY: Create your goals  with your eyes wide open

The Princess wants to change her destiny (not a spoiler as all the trailers will tell you that). Unfortunately, she allows that one desire to override her common sense. She makes a poor choice, even after she hesitates. This, indeed, does change the course of her destiny. The problem: It sure isn’t how she had intended it to be! Yikes, how many times do you create a plan or strategy that initially appears perfect and jump right into the execution of it? Most businesses do this far too often.

Imagine me with a megaphone right now, “S-l-o-w d-o-w-n!” When you think you “have it”, sit on it for 48 hours, wait…  and see what else has come forward! Do yourself another favor, share it with someone that has already done this or isn’t vested in its outcome – they will give you priceless wisdom. Do you dare to be that brave?

BRAVE’S BUSINESS STRATEGY#3
THE POWER OF A BUSINESS OWNER’S THOUGHTS: You determine your business’s destiny

The Princess wanted to have all the flexibility and freedoms that went along with being a Princess, but not the responsibilities of a Princess-ship. We see this everywhere, don’t we? What about  you, as a business owner or manager? Have you ever wanted the benefits of success, but didn’t want to do the appropriate work to accomplish the goal? Ever have that little temptation come to life? Sure, we all do from time to time, but are your continuously getting snagged there?

You see, your thoughts determine your business’s destiny. Thoughts change everything… sometimes in an instant! But, what about the responsibility of “right action”? Do you prepare yourself to take right action to alter your destiny as the Princess did? Do you take right action/s to support your business’s success? It’s always the practical and tactical actions that will propel your business forward. Choose wise thoughts; followed by wise action!

  1. I liked the movie Brave….and love your Point 3 — this ties so nicely in with the new Law of Responsibility….we indeed need to pattern our thoughts and actions to act in accordance with responsibility of making our business a success…. Thank you again for this reminder!

    1. Responsibility for all we create is a concept that I grew up with as a child and I do agree with my pappa when he says, “Regardless of what we create, whether a child, bill, or garden, the world would be a better place if we all just took care of our creations”. I also agree with you Blake that our businesses are a reflection of our own selves and our ideals… amazing isn’t it?
