Bugs Bunny’s DNA…

December 2, 2011

Ran across this post at the kimades blog, and just had to share it with you. It will make you laugh and learn at the same time, which is a great combination!


Why is it that no matter what he is confronted with, Bugs Bunny always wins? Regardless of whether he’s in a face to face fight with dim-witted rabbit hunter Elmer Fudd, at odds with explosive Yosemite Sam, making creative ploys to prevent Marvin the Martian from ruining the Earth, or matching wits with Wile E. Coyote, Bugs Bunny always sees a tactic to climb to the top. Other than the fact that the writers designed it that way, here’s just what makes Bugs Bunny’s winning DNA distinct:

1. Bugs Bunny expects to win. Always. And what that means is that he is never stressed out and has not even a shred of self doubt. He is confident of success and goes about his happy way expecting positive outcomes.

Do you expect to win in your career? Do you anticipate winning in your life? Or are you the kind of person that anticipates things will go wrong? Are you certain of your success or do you question if your time for success will ever come? Your results are a direct product of the expectations you have. Start to look deeply at the true expectations that you have for yourself and purposely steer your thoughts to have better expectations.

2. Bugs Bunny is always calm, finding a way to minimize or divert the conflict in every scenario. “Ehh, What’s up Doc?” is his unassuming way of disarming other characters and establishing rapport. He never frets; he knows it will all end up fine.

Are you consumed with stress? Do you find yourself nervously dealing with events in your life? The worry, guilt, disappointment and anxiety that we experience (often over things that we cannot handle) uses up our energy and negatively influences our outcomes. Imagine experiencing life knowing that things will all come out fine, feeling relaxed and at peace always. One of the most effective tools for creating a calm frame of mind is the process of journaling and using the exercise of writing to get rid of the worry and diver tour attention to thoughts that are empowering and align with the outcomes you are looking for.

3. Bugs Bunny is resourceful and makes use of all kinds of amusing tactics to distract and confuse his rivals. He invents new paradigms and offers them to his enemies. In one episode called ‘Hare Tonic’, Bugs escapes Elmer by tricking him into thinking there’s a horrible outbreak of “Rabbit-itus”.

Are you using all of the resources at your disposal to guarantee success? Do you tap into the people, the technology, the books, and historical success clues to help you muster your efforts towards winning? Write a list of all of the means that you have access to and organize how you will carefully tap into each.

4. Bugs Bunny goes the distance. He does anything to succeed. He’s willing to hide in a cannon, perform an opera, and dress like a lady to have the job done. He is open, he’s willing and he knows how to have a great time in the process.

Are you ready to go the distance to get the job done? Are you willing to delay your fear, even momentarily, and forge ahead to achieve your goals? Create a vision of your success and write it down. What does it look like? What does it feel like? What do you have to do to make it happen? Are you ready?

Bugs Bunny is a winner. Do you have Bugs Bunny’s DNA?
