Little Dude With Big Dreams
Napoleon Bonaparte was the emperor of France from 1804 to 1815. He was the second of eight children and was the runt of the litter. Mr. Bonaparte was born in Corsica, had a very distinct accent that his classmates teased him about which caused him to bury his face in books. Today he is considered by some as the greatest military commander of all time.
He overcame his height and speech “flaws” to become a true leader and conqueror. He was notorious for attacking the weakest frontline positions of an enemy and envelop them but if there were two opposing forces banding together he would split them at the hinge. Divide and Conquer. Do you see some of these attributes in the people you model your business after?
The Dynamite Effect
Napoleon Dynamite is a fictional character based on a high school nerd who had low ambitions and not much going for him. He was a daydreamer that pretty much avoided interaction with his peers. People viewed him as the prototypical dork and he would associate with similar personality types.
The movie ends up being a feel good story when the explosive but nerdy Dynamite puts himself in an uncomfortable position to help a friend out who was struggling. His friend’s pain became so great that he had to overcome his fears to help him out.
Napoleon Complex Is Really Quite Simple
The term napoleon complex is used to describe a person who feels inferior to others because they are smaller in stature. There are two common results from this complex. The first is to plow your way to greatness regardless of what anyone thinks and the other is to shrink and fade into obscurity. Which one of these produces a better result for your business and life?
The ghosts of physical, financial, educational and sociological past are irrelevant. Today is the start of your future. You can get lost in the shuffle or you can outgrow the plan that “others” have set for you. The sky is not the limit but actually a checkpoint to take a breather and view the scenery…keep pushing forward and bring as many people with you that you can. It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top.
