August News & Adventures
Everybody wants to get to the top. Regardless if it's the top of a career, a company, the earnings scale, or the many other ways that we as individuals can define the “top” in our own lives! However, the question is, with so many people trying to get to the top, how come so many people aren’t moving up? There are some fundamental reasons why. Reasons that can be addressed and changed!
Define what the “top” means for you.
This is an extremely important question, because if you don’t know where you are going, you will never get there! Some people don’t want to be the CEO of the company. In fact, many think they are better off than the CEO even though they don’t necessarily make as much money. Instead, they think they are at the top because of less stress, weekends with their families, etc, and I truly get that. It doesn’t matter what others think is the top, it only matters what you think, since you are only gauging whether or not YOU get there! So where is it for you? That is the first question for you to answer.
Be passionate about your goal.
Passion is the energy that drives us. Passion is the wind in the sales of work. Find some thing you love to do and you will find something you can get to the top of. If you don’t love it, you may still make it to the top, though highly unlikely and at what cost. There may be no joy and if there is no joy in what you do, what is the point. Let your passion carry you, because it will carry you far!
The will to continue when the going gets tough
Another reason some will not get to the top is because they simply refuse to scale the mountains of hardship that separate them from the top. If you want to see the beautiful view from the top, you will have to climb over any obstacles that come your way on your way up. Instead, many choose to stay at base camp or turn around as soon as the going gets tough! Persistence will get you though any obstacle. Continue until you get to the top!
Love people and treat them right.
Yes! You heard correctly! Love people! Why? Because if you are going to get to the top, you are going to need other people around you to help and support you. So be a jerk and you will find people avoiding you or dragging their feet to help you. Treat them right and you will find them doing whatever they can to help you and cheer you on!
Master the appropriate skills.
Average skills will get you to the middle. Top skills will get you to the top! Combined with the points above this is most certainly true. Are you achieving excellence in the skills you need? Are you growing day by day, month by month, year by year? You can always get better and getting better will take you closer to the top! Even if you are only improving a little, keep improving that small amount and it will eventually become a big amount! W.T James said "Little by little we build our power" Demand the best from yourself and believe you can do it and you will get to the top! ADVENTURES FOR FUN!
