It seems to me that ever since I was a kid, whenever someone told me I couldn’t do something, that it wasn’t possible, my “oppositional reflex” would kick in. You know the one … the voice that says “Nuh uh … I CAN DO THAT!!”
Even though I wasn’t sure exactly how (yet), but just because someone said so it was a challenge enough for me for my brain to start figuring out the “how” part.
And, it worked. It’s still working for me … and many others, too. In fact, Seth Godin wrote a short (free) e-book about all of us for whom insubordination was the energy, the drive and the passion to do the opposite of what the “experts” said we should to be successful or who didn’t believe (or see how it was possible).
I say Embrace your oppositional reflex! Insubordinates unite!
How has insubordination worked for you? If you’ve ever wanted to be insubordinate, but weren’t sure how … contact me for a FREE COACHING SESSION to find out how, you, too, can join the Insubordinates Club!
