Connection With Others – Unite Challenge – Day 2

On Day 2 of Jason Fladlien’s Unite Challenge, attendees were give a goal.  That goal was to be a hero to someone.  This isn’t that difficult, given that there are nearly 8 billion people in the world.

There are advantages to taking on the “hero’s” role:

Easiest Hero Roles

  • There are many easy roles to becoming a hero.  Listening is often the key.
  • The more people you help, the more you add to the capacity of your life.
  • It’s hard to feel sorry for yourself when you are helping others
  • It’s possible to make a living by helping others, e.g., if you can help 1,000 people and are compensated $1,000 for each that could be $1 million in earnings.

Anyone can be a hero.  For example, Jason’s friend Joe Polish, who is a carpet cleaner and recovering addict started helping other carpet cleaners with their marketing.  Although his grade point average made him least likely to succeed, he has achieved a thriving business.  Jo

His “Genius Network Mastermind” membership is $25,000 per year and he has been a keynote speaker at dozens of industry trade shows all around the world.

Jason Fladlien was also unlikely to succeed.  When he was 9 years old, he climbed a tree.  The branch broke and he injured his hand trying to catch himself.  When his dad came out and found him,  he literally screamed at him “you can’t get hurt on a Sunday, because we can’t afford to take you to the emergency room.” 

Jason never felt more alone in his life.  His Mom had to call someone who knew a doctor to beg him open his clinic so they could avoid the emergency room.  Jason told himself that he would NEVER, NEVER be in a position like that where he couldn’t take care of his kids.

At 18 years old, Jason was having 3-4 panic attacks  a day.  He moved in with his mother, who was a drug addict and later was incarcerated.  In college, he gained weight, had continued panic attacks and was very depressed.  

He was drawn in spiritual directions as a Hare Krishna “rapper.”  Jason Fladlien, Hare Krishna RapperAlthough he made his experiences into a bad story for the first half of his life, he now has changed it to a good story, that motivates him to be a hero to those around him.

These stories are meant to encourage others and to illustrate the fact that anyone can be a hero and have great success in life, beyond their wildest dreams.  Many people need a hero, including:

  • The marginalized
  • The stepped on
  • The dis-empowered
  • Those without a voice
  • The demoralized
  • The constrained
  • The weak
  • The fragile
  • The vulnerable
  • The defenseless
  • The at risk

Connection with others becomes the key to engaging as a hero to those most in need, which is virtually everyone.  Clues to aid establishing connectionsThere are various ways to connect with others by either recognition or intentionally reaching out.  Use of language is a key to making meaningful connections.  Sights, sounds and feelings are clues to establishing connections.

Obviously becoming a hero to others is key to success.  But it is only part of the solution.  On Day 3 of the Unite Challenge, Jason will explore and provide suggestions for Connection with a Higher Power in order to help others (and themselves) reach their full potential.
