Pick up your pants and stop complaining already?!!!
How far are you willing to go to acquire the skills to become a contender? | Be Kind to yourself…and others
Success is a process; Don’t you dare not be kind to yourself…and others!
Somehow in this world of immediate gratification, everyone seems to want immediate riches and success without having to build the muscle to carry you there and help you withstand the success when you do get there.
There is this unfortunate trend where many expect to start jobs without the relevant skillsets and demand top-notch salaries. Others don’t have the experience for a particular job and yet want to be hired without experience dripping a “GIVE-me.me.me mentality”… Put yourself in the shoes of the employer… Would YOU want to hire a liability? Would you hire you? (Seriously!) That person is a human being just like any other with the responsibility of making sure that a business is successful.
If one brings no value to the table, why should they get hired?…
Why for the love of God should they get hired? So that they can help the business crash and burn? We need to understand that value builds value and if you cannot and won't bring anything to the table, it Is selfish and wreckless to expect and demand people to fill your pocket while all you are willing to give to life is merry-take-take-take… Experience and growth are what grow organizations. Do you have either?
If you don’t… how are you making a plan towards getting there? Are you thinking about volunteering? Or is volunteering beneath you at this stage? This here, I believe is the problem. Volunteering is not just giving your services for free. It is receiving training for FREE. The person who is giving you a place to exercise your capacity to handle different scenarios is giving you a training ground… FOR FREE. Imagine a world where you had to pay to receive training… Normally the experience sets picked up from volunteering completely out way the value the volunteer gives back! In the end, it is all about perception really! So, I wonder! What is your perception of the value you bring to the table?
Are you investing in short-term gains and gratification? Or do you believe in yourself enough to allow yourself to go through the process of growth? Do not waste life. Never let a day go by where you haven’t grown in one way or the other.
Success is a process. Be kind to yourself and love yourself enough to allow yourself to go through it.
