I'm reading Sally Hogshead's book Fascinate: Your 7 Triggers to Persuasion and Captivation. According to the online assessment, my primary trigger is Rebellion and my secondary trigger is passion. Find out your Fascination Score.

This finding has me thinking about rebellion and what makes someone a 'rebel'. What makes normal, everyday people challenge 'the way things are', push back against the status quo ... and act. 

We live in a connected age with access to mountains of information. What triggers you to get involved or not?

Michelle Obama, in speaking to an audience in South Africa, said...
"reject the false comfort that others' suffering is not your concern, or that if you can't solve all the world's problems then you shouldn't even try... refuse to remain a bystander when others are suffering."

Take your passion off the back burner; explore what motivates you.

"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are."
~ Teddy Roosevelt


  1. Love it. I am the opposite - Passion then Rebellion - the Catalyst. Apparently it would seem we need to follow each other around to balance each other out :)
