I'll cut right to the chase here: Are we willing to be wrong? Are we willing to have our preconceptions altered or smashed?
As I believe in we create our own lives, I would ask, are you willing to be right? To totally truly wear it. To stand up and be totally self reliant, and totally accountable, totally right, regardless of the outcome. To have enough surity, certainty, fearlessness to be right.
Thats what I love about Richard Branson, well, me too. Anyone. Whatever you think about boxing, the night Muhammed Ali beat Foreman was just that. The rope a dope...no one even had a clue what he was doing. Trainers, managers, commentators, fans, experts, all screaming advice at him...'get off the ropes, he's doomed, what are you doing, disaster, he's gonna be knocked out, he's finished, he's gonna be this, he's gonna be that, he should do this, he should do that'. And he ignored the whole show, totally focused on his direction. And he backed himself totally, relied totally on his own belief, no doubt, no fear. As he always had done. A hero. Imagine what everyone praising him, would be saying if he lost. Thats where most peoples energy goes.
