(Let me know what you think after you watch this, whether in support of or critical of the video! E.g., does Sivers leave anything out?)

Really inspiring. I feel pretty beat up sometimes trying to do things different, even with a small group of wonderful followers. It is just nice to focus on the joy and excitement that this group obviously experienced as they coalesced.
You definitely are a leader, Ben, a visionary. I can see how you feel beat up at times. It’s great to hear that you have a good group around you and I hope it continues to grow in all respects!
Oh my goodness. I reposted this to twitter and my dear friend reminded me that I was THERE when this video was shot! Unbelievable small world. It was the 2009 Sasquatch Music Festival in George, Washington. I thought it looked familiar but I didn’t recall it until she said something. We were both there – a long way up the hill from where it happened. The first guy dancing was there by himself for a LONG time before someone else joined in.
No freaking way! That’s crazy, Juli! So are you one of the eventual dancers?! :)
Hahaha! This made me laugh and rang true. I think Mr.Sivers hit the nail on the head. It is those first few believers that make all the difference. Thanks for posting!
Hooray for the people who are not afraid to be nuts!
Very cool. I confess, I tend to bristle at self-help seminars, etc but this had some terrific points in it. Particularly since I often feel like that ‘lone nut’!
Keep on dancing, Tom!!! ;0
