The Alpha Preneur’s core values do not simply exist on paper. Our core values are the guidelines for how we conduct ourselves and our business. We live by them. In each aspect–physically, mentally emotionally, and spiritually, these core values are the driving forces for achieving excellence for our lives as well as those under our leadership.
E- Everythings For Play
Not living life with regrets. Getting out on the field of life. “E.F.P.” means NOT choosing to be a full-time spectator. This means Getting in the thick of things. Competing, learning, growing without overthinking it.
After applying E.F.P. You automatically start the process of applying core value number two– “Respect”. Because Everyone respects a fighter. Bully’s even respect fighters. Respect is earned not given. Nobody respects a full-time spectator though.
A- Attention To Detail
The great Willie Sutton said “Success in any endeavor requires single-minded attention to detail and total concentration.” And I agree; The details is what separates the boss from the employee. The Sergeant, from the Corporeal. The Chief from the villager. It can either make or break you. Winning is in the details.
The ability to remove all unnecessary and unbeneficial activity from your life. This breeds focus. Im not saying don’t have fun, In fact you should know me by now, I say the opposite. Everythings for play. Have fun. But keep the bullshit to a minimum.
Its easy to have attention to detail and to detach from useless unbeneficial distractions once you identify whats wildly important. I get this concept from David Brooks the New YorkTimes Columnist. He wrote a column about distraction. “He says yes there are distractions, there are tons of them, but the problem is that people don’t have something they feel importantly enough about to resist the distraction.” This is whats going to give you your motivation, inspiration, and focus. Identifying whats wildly important.
And once you’ve identified whats wildly important, that “thing” Will keep you Committed to your goal. I define Commitment as the ability to stay dedicated, when shit gets uncomfortable. Commitment is the biggest issue I see with my clients, past and current. They start something but don’t finish it. Well if you haven’t IDENTIFIED whats wildly important then how can you possibly stay committed?
Now that you are committed. You create what I call an “Allegience.” An allegience is commitment, but it is superior commitment to a higher or superior cause. At this point you begin to think about your legacy. You are past your own kids, your thinking about your childrens children. Your thinking about the unborn generation of human beings who are gonna need your insight and wisdom to be passed down. You begin to see that it is no longer about you. Instead you begin to see this is your Duty. You no longer Pledge Allegiance to the Flag, You Pledge Allegiance to Progression. To becoming a little bit better today than you were yesterday, so that you can help those under you and behind you.
T- Trust Worthy
Once people see that you are committed, and have formed an allegiance. You now become credible. You can be trusted. Trust just like respect is earned not given. And to earn others trust you must keep integrity. Integrity in you actions and in your words. When Men dont follow through on their word they break Trust. Doing so is in direct violation of the Man Code. A Man Does what he says even in times of uncomfort.
And lastly, be Ethical in the moves you make. Keep ethics always in the forefront of your mind. If I could teach only one value to live by, it would be this: worldly success will come and go, but integrity is forever. Ask yourself…”What are the decisions that I am making on a daily basis saying about the person that I am?”
“About the person that I want to be?”
“And more important, the legacy that I want to leave for my Children?”
This last principle brings everything full circle. It separates the good from the great…..It separates regular Entrepreneurs from Alpha Preneurs. Yes we as Alpha Preneurs love money, we love the fame, and the fortune, but we have a code of conduct to abide by, morals, standards, and boundaries that we don’t cross. We have Ethics. And we stand strong by them.
And those are the principles of the AlphaPreneur. Thats our Core Values. Our Code of Conduct. Together, they spell the word E.R.A.D.I.C.A.T.E.–Be an Alphapreneur, “Eradicate Bitchassness”, not only in your own life, but in the lives of those you love as well.
