Peak Performance and getting there in business or sport (4)

I will post an article I picked up from Rob Smorfitt, have a look at his blog for starting businesses in South Africa, this is to support part 4 of the plan.

3. Entrepreneurial Spirit:

"....Your entrepreneurial spirit makes you no more than this: A heroic soul born desperately in need of adventure.To you ... a crisis is an opportunity, a moment is an eternity, a rule is a tyranny, a process is a purgatory, a joy is an ecstasy, a daydream is a vision, a hazard is a playground, silence is suffocation, and completion is death.Add to this brutally expansive spirit the overwhelming need to risk, create, and express, so that without the creating of music or poetry or books or businesses or buildings or something of meaning, your very breath is cut off ...You must create , must pour out your entire being in creation and risk.By some strange, unknown, inward urgency you do not feel truly alive unless you are intimately involved in the risk of self-expression.Thank you for having the courage to create, innovate and risk. For without your creations the world would grow dull and listless And the rest of us who are like you would not have your courageous act to lean on to inspire our own...."

If you can build a team with this spirit..you will have a top performing team..
