If you want to get rich.....
“If you want to get rich, invest in victimization. It is America’s fastest growing industry,” observes Haddon Robinson. He points out that millions of people are becoming rich by identifying, representing, interviewing, treating, insuring, and counseling victims. It seems many focus more on their rights than on their responsibilities.
Are we in the wrong business? Lol
Good leaders never embrace a victim mentality. They recognize that who and where they are remain their responsibility—not that of their parents, their spouses, their children, the government, their bosses, or their coworkers. They face whatever life delivers them and give it their best, growing within, becoming better, proving they are capable of leading.
Some things I have noticed about good leaders are:
~They get the job done! No one can do the minimum and reach his maximum potential.
~They are willing to go the extra mile. Responsible people never protest, “That’s not my job.” They are willing to do whatever it takes to get results.
~They are driven by excellence. People who desire excellence, and work hard to achieve it are almost always responsible. Success expert Jim Rohn says, “Stress comes from doing less than you can.” Aim to excel.
~They produce regardless of the situation. The ultimate quality of a responsible person is the ability to finish. They find a way.
How do we get better at being responsible? Hang in there! If you aren’t delivering, evaluate your situation and see where improvements can be made. Think outside the box. Call a colleague for help. Strategize with you mastermind group for creative ideas.
Another way is to find better tools. If you find that you are still aren’t achieving what you’d like to, get better equipped. Improve your skills by taking classes, reading books, or listening to teaching tapes. Find a mentor! Do whatever it takes to become better at what you do.
To your success,
