Building a Culture of Action
Business consultant Erik Chaplen overcame an abusive, fatherless home growing up. Today, he coaches others to succeed in business and life. He’s mastered the ability to succeed with what he has in front of him and showing others how they can do the same in their own lives.
We live in a world that is saturated with information, and little action is taken to make a difference with that resource. Erik founded CultureOfAction.com because he wants to make a difference. He wants you to not only learn more about yourself.
It’s not enough to just know. You have to do something with that knowledge every day to build the habits that will change your life.
Building a culture of action means surrounding yourself with people who will drive you forward.
Seth Godin Called it a Tribe
Seth Godin calls it a tribe. Others call it a posse or crew. Okay, that hasn’t been true since the 1990s. Whatever we call it, the core elements of the people we should surround us are the same.
A culture of action will encourage us when we are down. It will cheer with us in our victories. Most of all, the right group will help us rewrite the negative self-talk we tend to pour into our lives.
Becoming a Better Man
Fatherhood has been the biggest eye-opener for Erik to pursue a journey of self-improvement. It wasn’t enough for him to say that he turned out okay. We were honored to interview Erik as he shared moments of vulnerability, and struggles with pride as he strives to become the father his children need him to be.
He shares his story with you not to show off. This episode really is not about Erik. This episode is for your life.
What action will you take today and every day to build the habits that build a culture of action around you?
