We discuss the deeply personal topic of innovative action and how it calls upon you to stick your neck out.
Within every human being is the spark of imagination and it is up to the individual to analyze their character to determine how they plan to realize their gifts - our unique ability to innovate. Those who embrace their calling in life, live at the heart of their own personal innovation. They’ve made a choice to follow their soul’s calling and break free of the mandates of society. For to innovate, is to challenge the working establishment - whether it be the automobile industry or those who would dictate your career.
So, why would one risk social, psychological, and possibly material loss for the sake of changing the working establishment? There is an old saying, if it isn’t broken, doesn’t fix it. Taken at the personal level, there are well established career paths set out for you since kindergarten. Many before you have travelled the path of success, why are you questioning your destiny?
Because the well worn path is not yours.
Therefore, innovative action is truly an individual decision. Innovation occurs only when someone has an idea to improve the establishment and the courage to manifest the idea into existence. Today, the only working establishment one should care about is one’s destiny. Who is going to define it? Society? The government? The education system? Corporations? Media? Who decides your life’s purpose?
Those who look to protect the establishment will fight to kill your innovation and personal attainment. They’ll want you to fall in line. Usually through social, legal, and political pressure, or just plain making it hard to live your bliss. At some point one will have to choose a life of working for money or working a life’s purpose.
Make no mistake, personal innovation flies in the face of the working establishment and takes great effort to resist the siren’s call of prosperity. Therefore, personal innovation is at the soul of every human and cannot be realized unless there is purposeful action. One has to take action.
