Elevating Business to Heroic Success
With just a favorite blanket, a safety pin and our imagination, we instantly became Heroes, at least in our own mind! Almost every childhood includes the quest for the Heroic. Even in our adult years, that longing to be a part of something much larger than ourselves still pulls at us. That’s one of the reasons Comic-Con is such a big success year after year.
But can Heroism be achievable in the business realm? I say “Yes!”…….so long as we are using the best definition for it. Wait while I crack open my bright-red, hardcover Webster’s Collegiate dictionary, or your go-to online version, more likely!
Under the definition for “Heroism”, this is what my copy says, in the very first definition: “Heroic conduct, especially as exhibited in fulfilling a higher purpose or attaining a noble end.” Let’s do a little vocabulary exploration, shall we?
What higher purpose could there be in business than to profitably provide the very best product or service to our valued customers while making a respectable living for our team members, resulting in a positive impact in our communities and the world at large?
“That sounds a little grand, John, to apply that to a business that sells…….toilet plungers!”
But is it? A higher purpose simply means something beyond ourselves, greater than our healthy, reasonable self-interest. After speaking with scores of business owners over the years, I have yet to hear that they entered into the roller-coaster world of capitalist endeavors for themselves alone. The most typical reasons I heard were:
- They had a skill they could use to benefit others
- They appreciated the flexibility to work alongside their families
- They wanted to make a difference in their community through their hiring and their quality product or service
- They wanted to do their very best so that their work was stamped with excellence
Excellence. That’s a word that is commonly over-used nowadays. But did you know that a definition for “noble” is just that….excellence? It’s true! Excellence is a synonym for nobility. You didn’t know you were in for a grammar lesson when you started reading this blog post, did you? No more dictionary references, I promise!
Our goal at Accelerated Revenue Inc. is to Elevate Business to Heroic Success. We believe that companies who are relationship-driven already strive for Heroism; they just don’t realize that pursuing the highest standards is Heroic.
