Rhinos with Nothing to Lose

If you've read my blog for any length of time, you'll know I'm a big fan of Rhinoceros Success, a great little book (with BIG text) about "charging" toward whatever you want, damning the torpedoes and hanging with the lions and tigers out there.

Im also a big fan of Ryan Blair's book, Nothing to Lose, Everything to Gain, which I just finished reading for the second or third time.

So, here's my thought for the day: What if those two concepts were combined??

A Rhinoceros with Nothing to Lose

Now THAT would be a force to be reckoned with!

A rhino is already nearly impossible to take down - the presence of 3000 pounds, 2-inch think skin, and a horn that creates fear just by its appearance. Now, put that rhino in a corner where it's got nothing to lose, imagine the response.

As entrepreneurs, small business owners, employees, even husbands, wives, parents, friends, we should take this same approach in life and work. What's holding you back from:

  • Pursuing your passion?
  • Striking out on your own?
  • Moving to a new city?
  • Exploring a new hobby?
  • Selling your business to start a new venture?

Next time you're faced with a challenge or risky decision, think like a rhinoceros with nothing to lose!
