We Seek What We Believe In

Posted by iBlog on August 20, 2007

If we will only have the wisdom and patience to intelligently and effectively explore the work in which we’re now engaged. We’ll usually find that it contains the riches we seek. Whether they be financial or intangible, or both.

Before we go running off to what we think are greener pastures. Let’s make sure that our own is not just as green or perhaps even greener. You see, while we’re looking at other pastures, other people are looking at ours. There’s nothing more pitiful, to my mind, than the person who wastes their life running from one thing to another, forever looking for the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and never staying with one thing long enough to find it.

” What lies before you and what lies behind you are tiny matters compared to what lies within you. ” by Emerson. It helped me to understand that all of our opportunities as well as our problems are in our perception of situations and our perception is controlled by our paradigms. To ignore the power of paradigms to influence your judgement is to put yourself at risk when exploring the future. Paradigms definitely influence our thinking and have the ability. If left unchecked, to control our entire life.

We should avoid such self-restriction and realize there’s virtually no limit to our growth and development on the land upon which we now find ourselves, with our roots deep in the soil of a working philosophy of life and our minds and bodies in climate of freedom.

People who become outstanding in their work are those who see their work as an opportunity for growth and development and who prepare themselves for the opportunities which surround them everyday.

To do this, start at the beginning. What industry or profession does your job fall??? Do you know all you can know about your industry?? How did it begin?? Why did it begin?? Who started it and when?? What is your industry’s annual dollar volume?? How fast has it grown during the past twenty years??? What’s it’s projected growth during the next ten years??

Did you know that many industries will double in size during the next eight years?? This takes only about a ten percent gain per year. In short, start now to become a student of your industry. You’ll be amazed at the results. If you can see no limit to the growth of your industry, doesn’t it makes sense to realize that there’s no limit as to how far you can progress within its framework?? On the other hand, those who are not preparing and growing are not just standing still, in relation to their industry, their going backwards. So ask yourself. Do I know as much about my job and my industry as a good doctor knows about their job, their profession??

In order to become a professional in a world of amateurs, we need to study three important subjects.

1. Our company and the industry in which it operates.

2. Our job and perhaps the next step upward in our career.

3. We need to study people, since successfully serving and getting with people will

    determine our success or failure.

How can I increase my service today?? Think of ways and means by which you can increase your contribution to your company, your industry and those whom you serve.

You’re creating, rather than competing. You’ll affecting life, rather than just being affected by it. You are becoming a creator and a giver to life, instead of just a receiver.
