Work Toward Change, Not Being Liked

I was listening to one of my mentors, Darren Hardy, and he mentioned that most people are not pushing change hard enough and therefore not as successful as they could be. I need to quit worrying about being liked and move toward pushing the envelope and developing & nurturing respect with those around me. Most people don’t like change, but it is the only way progress can be achieved.

Delayed Gratification

Wealth

Better to be rich than to look rich. I would also add that time is worth more than money. In my career I have always weighed taking on more projects and earning more money against the additional time away from family & friends.

Willpower

I read an interesting story on Willpower. One group was put in a room with Cookies and Radishes. This group was told they could have as many cookies as they would like, but no radishes. The other group was told they could have as many radishes as they would like, but no cookies. After this experiment, a test was given to the participants. The cookie eaters scored higher because their willpower was higher. They did have to utilize any willpower to avoid cookies! The other group’s willpower was low because of the effort needed to withstand going to the cookie jar.

Legacy vs Resume

Watching a video by Darren Hardy this morning and he talked about Resume Building versus Legacy Building. Resume Building is learning new things and networking to further your career. Legacy Building is how you impact the lives of others each day. Am I focused more on my resume or legacy? I have to say, it is my resume. Need to spend more time looking for ways to make a positive difference in the lives of others.

Pride

“God opposes the proud but grace to the humble.” James 4:4-10. I need to keep my Ego in check. Ego stands for Edging God Out.
