A greater part of daily life goes into having a job, work, vocation, career or business. Whether working for someone, self employed, waiting to get a job or start a business, the preoccupation is very active towards getting a job, keeping or advancing on the job.
Have you ever thought about this: if you have a job, all that will matter is to keep the job, get a better job and advance to the peak point. Same rule applies if you run a business, you will hustle to gain customers, gain leads, make sales and gain competitive advantage to achieve a profitable business. On the flipside, if you are yet to get a job, you keep applying, seeking opportunities, networking and pushing hard! Until that singular goal is achieved, we see and rate ourselves differently.
To a large extent we define ourselves by what we do ~ our job, work, vocation, career or business and by where we do it. We also measure our performance and success in life with the rewards and returns that our jobs or endeavour offers. By implication, this part of life cannot be shoved aside or ignored as it affects livelihood and survival.
As critical as this aspect of life is, there are parts for us to follow but many parts are not in our total control – your job will be directed by the Management of the organization, marketforces, policies and the superiors in their diverse variants. The workplace can be tough and many issues staring us in the face. What do we then do to get the best of our working life and not be at the mercy of others? Sometimes you can choose, other times you don’t have that privilege. Do you then ask yourself who do I really want to work for? The answer is Work for yourself!!
Yes, you heard me! Work for yourself!!
The best mode to be on the job whether on your business as an entrepreneur or as an employee: wear the cap of working for yourself striving to have personal results, seeing every opportunity as a step forward and every challenge as capacity building. When you work for yourself, your attitude and disposition changes.
This week I challenge you to WORK FOR YOURSELF and see the difference in your attitude and results.🎯✍
