Success at Work - Good Employers

SUCCESS AT WORK

'Activity is the application of all that we know
and all that we feel, combined with our desire to
have more than we have and become more than we are.'


 
LIFE is not designed to give rewards in proportion to our needs but to the level we deserve. Whatever life has handed to us, it is our responsibility to DO something daily at work with what we have been given. That is how we change obstacles into opportunities - by taking all that we have and all that we are and putting them into work on a daily basis.

Sooner or later we must convert knowledge and good feelings (PMA) into activity at work. The better we feel about ourselves and our opportunities, the greater our chances for success at work (and at home).

But by just knowing and having a positive attitude will not bring results at our work place, as knowing and doing are poles apart! They merely determine our potential for achievement. Whether we actually achieve our goals at work (a promotion, a better job, a bonus, etc.) is ultimately determined by our daily activity. Completing the picture of your dream requires action.

If we have a sincere desire to go for our goal, than we are compelled to find every possible means to implement all that we know and feel on a daily basis at work. Every single day of our life at our work place, we need to do a little bit more that we already know. We must find ways to demonstrate on the outside all that we possess on the inside. Otherwise, our dreams will die inside of us and the desires of our hearts remain unfulfilled.

Why some people fail and others succeed at a similar work place can sometimes seem unfair. Some seem to receive so much and yet merit so little. Some good people seem to have so little while the dishonest seem to have so much. The answer might well be that we do not work at achieving our goals...and they do. We do not take all that we are and put them into our work daily. They do.

We do not stay up late at night developing new plans to achieve our dreams and work hard day after day to make those dreams a reality. They do. We do not learn all that we possibly can about our industry and our markets. They do. We do not make every effort to get around the right sources of influence, to associate with those people who can help us to achieve our goals. They do. While we are dreaming about the promise of the future, they are doing something about it. And they are doing it consistently and with an intensity and a level of commitment that would put many of us to shame. And so if life does not seem fair sometimes, we have no one to blame but ourselves.

Imagine how different our world would be if we make a commitment right now to put into daily action at our work place all that we currently are, wherever we currently are and with whatever we currently have. What if, starting right now, we convert our dreams into plans and our plans into refined activities that would lead toward the achievement of our goals? What an incredible difference we could make! What a life we could then share with our families and what an inheritance we could leave to the next generation - all because we cared enough to do something with our lives and to put all our skills and talents into our work.

If we want to succeed, sooner or later our level of daily activity at work must equal our level of intent. Talking about achievement is one thing; making it happen is something altogether different. If we seem to take more joy in talking about success than we do in achieving it, then all the things that we should be doing and could be doing on any given day at work never seem to get done.


We already know more than we need to know at work
to achieve our goals, to succeed. All we need to
do now is begin to DO what we already KNOW!


Finally, we must discipline ourselves daily at work to convert dreams into plans, plans into goals and goals into small daily activities that will lead us, one sure step at a time, towards a better future. Remember to ponder all that is possible, that to do what is possible we must sometimes challenge ourselves with the impossible. As said the ancient warrior: "It is better to aim the spear at the moon and strike the eagle, than to aim at the eagle and strike only a rock!"


THE CHANGE PROCESS TOWARDS SUCCESS AT WORK

STEP 1: DECIDE

WHAT?
We must first decide what we want to achieve and be.

WHY?
Our mind must have order which is specific images of what we want to achieve and be.

HOW?
We must decide on our Goals, and align them to our Life Purpose

WHEN?
Now!


STEP 2: INTERNALISE

WHAT?
We must plant the images of our Success into our Unconscious Mind.

WHY?
We have to integrate our thoughts, feelings and actions in order to move our images into reality.

HOW?
We have to internalise the images through the technique of Spaced Repetition, Affirmations, Visualisation and Emotionalisation (S.A.V.E.) in a Relaxed and Emotional state.

WHEN?
S.A.V.E. daily


STEP 3: PLAN

WHAT?
Planning is the tool that outlines: What to do? When to do? Who to do?

WHY?
People do not plan to fail but fail to plan.

HOW?
Define goal and deadline. Break down and list activities or work plan. Prioritise to do the hard things first. Work backwards from end to start. Block time. Delegate or contract out.

WHEN?
Plan daily.

STEP 4: DO
WHAT?
Steps 1-3 are useless if not done.

WHY?
Only the doing gets things done.

HOW?
We do/move into action only if we are motivated.

WHEN?
Daily

STEP 5: CHECK
WHAT?
Daily Activity level/daily activity deviations.

WHY?
To provide information to make modifications/corrections.

HOW?
If all planned activities are completed, seek new ways to further improve. If not, identify the cause and provide solutions.

WHEN?
Daily

STEP 6: LEARN
WHAT?
Learn form mistakes/successes.

WHY?
Learning from mistakes makes us wiser; learning from success makes us confident and competent.

HOW?
List down mistakes/successes and ask: how it happened, why it happened, what can I learn?

WHEN?
Daily
