The following article is from the LIFE book written by Orrin Woodward and Chris Brady. It is a distress signal to all the entrepreneurial spirits out there, as well as to those who are becoming increasingly concerned about our “Big Brother Government.”
Answering Liberty’s Distress Signal
LIFE (Living Intentionally For Excellence) is a movement of entrepreneurs dedicated to raising the bar on themselves and their communities for life. Consistent success is never achieved without a goal of excellence. Often, people choose pleasing means and then accept whatever results come. But winners choose pleasing results and accept whatever means are necessary to achieve it. Winning is for the few, but anyone can choose to be a part of that few- the few who will do what it takes to win- the few who choose to live intentionally for excellence.
Personal success is not the only impact of living for excellence. Today’s society stands at a crossroads. People realize that the corporate world is not the “cradle-to-grave” guarantee it was in the decades following World War II; however, so many have been trained only to work for someone else, focusing on security and not opportunity. What happens to a society in which a high percentage of people have been trained to seek a “secure job,” but few such jobs are available? Society runs to Big Brother government, seeking the security that government cannot provide. History is filled with examples of governments stifling the entrepreneurial spirit, choking the productive engine of a society’s advancement, and sounding the death knell of numerous civilizations, in an attempt to “help the helpless” citizens. North America stands at a crossroads where it either runs to more and more government, (and in the process surrenders its freedom and future,) or returns to its roots, providing freedom and justice for any dreamer who chooses to prosper.
It’s time to send a wakeup call to the entrepreneurial spirits across North America.
Where are the entrepreneurs, the leaders, and the dreamers who will step to the plate and swing for the fences- win or lose? The time for talking is over and the time for action is upon us. These are historic times with historic ramifications. Just as the founding fathers did in the 18th century, let’s pledge our fortunes, our lives, and our sacred honor in this noble cause to restore the American Dream. Liberty has sent out its distress signal. Let’s answer the call. Let’s Live Intentionally For Excellence. A life so lived just might be the spark that sets ablaze a new movement for freedom and justice.
