05 Maintain Faith

“Thought allied fearlessly to purpose becomes creative force; he who knows this is ready to become something higher and stronger than a mere bundle of wavering thoughts and fluctuating sensations; he who does this has become the conscious and intelligent wielder of his mental powers.”

–As A Man Thinketh

The foundation of success is your ability to lead yourself, to never give up, and to maintain faith. Faith is the rock; confidence, the sand. The only valid reason to discontinue is if you decided, for whatever reason, no longer believe in your dream. Not just because it is hard.

Most people are overwhelmed physically, emotionally, spiritually in the intensity of the experience of creating something from nothing- Companies and products don’t give up, people do. You need to train for it. Determination takes a lot of energy from the body, mind and soul. An athlete would never show up to the big game, expecting to win, without consistent training. Your life is the most important game you will ever play. To leverage your full creative force, you will need to commit to some new habits.

∼physical flow: yoga, running, swimming; to get you in the zone, alleviate stress and stimulate creativity.

∼mindfulness: meditation, breath work; it gives you clarity, allows you to master your mind, and lastly a

∼morning routine: songs, readings, videos or other reminders that will provide a reset; to get you in the right space to take another step towards your dream today, no matter how bad things got were yesterday.

When things get crazy, and they will, confidence will betray you in a flash, but faith is something you always have. Practice it consistently.

About Tribetan

Tribetan was founded by Tiffany Norwood a successful serial entrepreneur, global thought leader and a patented inventor. Ms. Norwood is one of the pioneers of digital satellite radio; as part of the start-up team of WorldSpace/XM Radio; as well as, an early collaborator in MPEG technology, later to be known as MP3 and MP4. She personally raised nearly a billion dollars in her 20s to fund this new global communication platform.

She recognized that most frameworks related to entrepreneurship, like lean canvas and agile development, were for the product or the company. What was missing was something for the person, the entrepreneur themself. Our Tribetan framework; a step-by-step algorithm for turning imagination into reality for any person trying to manifest an idea, was captured and codified based on her 30 year history of startups.

The market realized the framework’s value, and our audiences came to us. We have now reached more than 9,000 people live, 150+ countries  and over one million people through broadcast. All through word of mouth. Venues have included NYU, the Italian Parliament, Global Entrepreneurship Week, Creative Business Cup, USOW, the Mexican Embassy, KMPG UK, Forte, and many others. Organizations working with Tribetan have included accelerators, incubators, universities, companies and others; with an interest in entrepreneurship, intrapreneurship, imagination, innovation, startups, the skills of successful entrepreneurs, global entrepreneurship and leadership success.

To learn more about our framework, we have included many resources on this website and will be adding even more in the future. If you are interested in speeches, lectures, workshops or collaborating, please contact collaborate@tribetan.com.
