IS THE GLASS HALF FULL OR HALF EMPTY? Are you a positive influence or one of negativity? Do you sugarcoat things or get straight to the point?
Much has been said about the best way of approaching business development or implementation of change, it can be stressful for many. Each of us have our goals (or we are working on them) and we all strive to do the best or be at our best … but are we willing to do what is needed to achieve the reputation for being ‘the best?’
If we are to be the best, to succeed in our chosen field, we must be single minded on the task at hand. Know your industry well; take time for education whether through formal training or peer groups, subscribe to those blogs, industry magazines and newsletters.
Show others what you know and stand out by delivering.
The ‘scary bit’ … change. Even the smallest focus in a different direction is going to alienate one or two who thought they knew our intentions. Change though is good if you are not achieving.
Lets find that fine line where our intentions to excel offer inspiration to others not alienation and ensure we ultimately offer vision for them to achieve and raise their own levels to where they never thought possible.
So for that particular goal you are working on? How about trying to be someone that is the calming force, offers advice, someone that might be counted on in times of need.
Who has the time for answers? You do. Who is the person not settling for ‘good enough?’ Who leads by example? You do, of course.
We all have it inside us to become better and to be the best. But are we willing to really make that happen?
Let’s get out of our own way, be the change you seek. Don’t dream, do.
