We are now on episode 13 Taking Pride in you work

Tip of the week

Don’t compare yourself with others. Just look at your own work to see if you have done anything to be proud of.

This week I am going to be talking Taking Pride in your work.  I am sure that many of you out there like sports.  On the other hand some of you may not even like sports and may not even like competition.  Many have a negative few on competition and think that all should get equal pay and equal.  Well this is not really the case.  Imagine a world in which we all got the same pay yet some worked harder than others. How long do you think those that work harder would continue to work as hard. Probably not very long.  In really the standard would actually get less and less because there is no real reason to perform better.  All throughout your career you are in competition with those around you. While it does not mean you are better than anyone else, we all have special talents. When you understand what you are really good at you will excel.  When you excel at a particular talent you will make more money which allows for you to live a better life.  Everyone has a special talent it is just a matter of finding out what you are good at. I am always amazed at those who complain in the field about how hard it is to do a job. Yet you find others out there that are not as talented working hard to make the small things they have better. Many time the end up doing better than those around them. Lets look at a typical scenario.  What if when you watch the Olympics everyone got a gold metal what would be the value of doing your best.  You see we are all at different levels. There are many of you out there that know thing that I will never know. There is also many things that I know that you may not know. This is where when we work together as a team, we more than double the production. If you pool together all the talents than you become something to contend with. Don’t feel like you have to be the best at everything just because you can’t do what some else is doing and makes so much money.  I would really be honored if you would subscribe on ITUNES or if you have an android phone you can subscribe on STITCHER. Thank you for allowing me to serve you and hope you enjoy the episode. Until next Time Stay Safe and Keep Surging Forward.
