The Pioneer-Mindset Part 2


Pioneers faced the unknown and overcame huge challenges! When we try to put ourselves in their shoes and understand what they must have been thinking in order to succeed, we could solve our own huge challenge, but it takes a little imagination.

For example, President Washington and President Lincoln faced the ultimate wars, with battles of an unknown outcome for an entire nation. Death and bloodshed was all around them. They had to stay focused, for them it was the ultimate mental challenge. For Washington it was all about creating a free nation under God and for Lincoln, it was keeping the free nation under God in one piece and not divided.

In American business, we have examples of this mental challenge on a different battlefield. Isn’t so much of our lives all about mental focus? Haven’t you had a big fat problem that wouldn’t go away, until you…

As you and I know, social mores and technology changes. It’s important to look back and see where we came from and how we arrived today.

To actually touch more than a painting, photograph or pages in a book. Statues are a way to help us connect with the pioneers that paved the way, on a different level. We don’t dwell on the past, we learn from it and move forward.

I would not like the story of my life, if one were to ever write such a story, to focus on my shortcomings and failures and completely dismiss all the things I got right. Would you?

We try to get it right the next time and learn from our mistakes. That’s what we as Americans do today and what we have done in the past.

So let’s think for a moment, why is America great? I understand, the list is long. As you think about your reasons, remember we are a unique Republic governed by the people that you and I appoint. We the people have the power. We have our say, our voice via the men and women we elect, as you know of course.

Our Founding Fathers were inspired by the great minds in history, as they themselves were in this elite class. Cicero’s writings, 2000 years ago, inspired them, as they were laying the foundation. Freedom, they understood, was at the center of this foundation.

Cultural change can take time. The idea of liberty, “freedom” for all was merely a dream for generations and generations.

Slavery for example, dates back to before recorded history. In 17th century Britain, it was big business and part of civilized culture around the world. African leaders and traders rounded up their fellow man and sold them across the globe. Slavery would end in Great Britain during the 1830’s and in America, obviously in the 1860’s.

America battled for freedom, we wrote our Declaration of Independence from a foreign power. The Civil War was all about freedom and unity. The definition of this freedom depended on dividing factors. In the end, freedom from slavery and freedom for all Americans under one nation prevailed.

We now have a divide among us that has been brewing for years. Just as it did in the 18th and 19th centuries.

I’m sure you love America as much as I do, because we know and understand her history. We know who we are today and look forward to an even better tomorrow. Because of our history, and the sacrifices that have been made, we have that freedom.

Remember, camping in an RV or tent is a great way to explore America! If camping isn’t your cup of tea, the hotel business is ready to receive you with open arms.
