Put an Emphasis on Strength

I recently came across a brief yet informative blog post by Seth Godin called, Demonstrating Strength.

It is a concise list that is informative, memorable, and short enough to easily act upon. I challenge you to meditate on this superb list and begin implementing a demonstration of strength in your daily interactions. For those compliants among us, do not just obsess on the “short straw” and “sacrifice” lines without remembering balance, always balance.

Demonstrating strength

  • Apologize
  • Defer to others
  • Avoid shortcuts
  • Tell the truth
  • Offer kindness
  • Seek alliances
  • Volunteer to take the short straw
  • Choose the long-term, sacrificing the short
  • Demonstrate respect to all, not just the obviously strong
  • Share credit and be public in your gratitude
  • Risking the appearance of weakness takes strength. And the market knows it.
