The only way to succeed in life is to first help other people succeed. Lots of good people are not successful because they focus on themselves. It is not about you, it is about other people.
You cannot succeed alone. You need people to help you grow. You need their talents, their skills, their love, their relationships, their joy and kindness. But you cannot get these things if you don’t care about them.
If you want success, you have to first make other people succeed. If you want people to trust you, you have to first trust them. If you want people to open their minds, you have to first open your own mind.
To succeed in anything, don’t make it about you. It is not about you, it is about them- the people you are working with. When you add values to people’s lives, your life will be better.
An average work is average work, half work, incomplete work, boring work, or a dead work. You can call it whatever you like. But one thing is clear: it is an average work.
An average work is fruitless. Your work is average when you complain always about your job. Your work is an average job when you can’t wait to go home. Your work is an average work when you hate what you do. You are doing an average work when you refuse to even show up at work. Lots of people are just getting by. That is another name for an average work. Average work lacks meaning and purpose. They are meaningless. People are doing it for survival- just to pay their bills. If you are in such a job right now, it is time to start planning what to do next. If you remain there, you will not be more than an average worker. Your goal in life is to be a great worker, not an average worker. It is up to you.
“The only way to do great work is to love what you do.”- Steve Jobs
If you hate what you do, you will get average results. If you love what you do, you will get satisfying results, because you love it and you have invested the right resources into it. There is no free ride to success. If you want to be successful, you must do the work. You must pay your OWN price to be successful. The price to pay for success is excellent work, not average work.
“If you don’t love it, you are going to fail.”- Steve Jobs
To get the best out of life, you must prepare your
mind to do the complete work. You cannot be successful without doing the full
work. If you have been doing an average work, just getting by, it is time for
you to change your mindset. It is time to start doing the right thing, so that
you can get the right and the best results.
Focus on what matters. Many people are not successful because they spend their time focusing on what is not important. They spend their time focusing on what will not move them from where they are to where they want to be. What a waste of time!
When you focus on what you want, and not what others want, your vision will be clearer to you. Your vision is where you are going. You can only get to where you are going by focusing on what you are doing now, where you are now, and who you are now.
If you want to be successful in life, in your career, you need to focus on what you are doing and where you are going to. Don’t let people talk you out of your dreams. Don’t let people dilute your dreams. Don’t let people mess up your goals.
If you focus, success will come to you. If you are not focused, it will be difficult to achieve success, because you don’t know what you want.
“Focused people don’t give up, they persevere.”
To check if you are still pursuing your dreams, always ask yourself, “Am I moving toward my goal?” If you are not moving towards your goal, it is time to re-evaluate yourself and your actions.
Find out what you are good at and pursue it with all your resources- financial, talent, social, and psychological resources. No matter how hard, no matter how difficult your goals might be, stick with it. Do not give up. It is not going to be easy, and it will never be easy. Embrace failure, because failure is going to be a major part of the journey to success. Don’t procrastinate. Whatever you are doing, finish it today, not tomorrow.
Recruit the best to join your organization. But you cannot recruit the best to join your company without first representing the best. The best job candidates are looking for the best organization to be a part of. They want to be part of a company that represent the best in their industry. The best want to be the best after they have made the decision to join your company.
“You can’t be the best when you are not the best”
You can’t get the best when you are not the best. If you want to be the best in your industry, always do the best. The best candidates want to be treated with respect, want to learn, want to grow, want to work with great leaders and managers, want to work for an ethical company, and want to be part of a company that is socially responsible.
