I have come a long way in my 34 years (Almost 35 as my birthday in on Christmas Eve!!), and realize I still have a long way to go. For those who don’t know me well I can be very abrasive at times and extremely demanding. I want things done now, and I want them done right the first time. When that doesn’t happen I look to see why the person isn’t performing to my, sometimes unrealistic, expectations. When I finally come to my senses I realize that people that work with me don’t love my business like I love my business and to expect them to always perform like it is life or death is silly on my part.
You see often people that you perceive as “slackers” simply need to be presented with the right situation to shine. I have been around long enough to see several people that I never though would “make it” end up doing great things in areas that they weren’t involved in at all just a few years ago. The problem is finding or creating that perfect situation where you can shine!
I believe one of the key areas that separates successful people from unsuccessful is a persons ability to create an environment where they can show off their stuff. Every person on this earth has incredible potential. I see it everyday. It isn’t judged on money, or how big your house is, but on whether or not you can look yourself in the mirror and say “I did well. I made the most of what I have been given.”
Find your niche and it will be your moment to shine! Stick with it and you can have a satisfying life day in and day out!
