What are you here for…I want you to truly think about the answer to that question…what are you here for?
Why are you in that chair right now about to start this business meeting with me?
Is it because you need a paycheck to care for your family?
Is it because you are a responsible citizen and would like to add to our community your God given talents?
Is it because you cannot find another business that will pay you this much money?
Is it because you have a passion for this position and a love for this business?
Is it because you have a goal and you know it will take time and effort to get to where you want to be someday and this is just another one of the steps along the way?
Is it because you don’t want to be unemployed?
Is it because you have to pay the bills to take care of yourself?
Is it because you want to change the world or make history through what you are adding to this business?
There are so many different answers to this question…what are you here for?
Now think about that answer and let it drive you. Let it motivate you to do the best you can in this job, in this career, in this position, in this business. You have a reason for doing this and hopefully you have a goal towards which you strive. If you keep your reasoning and your goals in the back of your mind and let them push you to achieve then you will overachieve. If you can give this business your energy, talents and time each work day, we as a team can achieve unbelievable goals.
It’s not just about me I am only one person. It’s about us, we cannot do this alone. We have to be a team; A team motivated and driven to work together for one goal. If we can discover our reasoning then we can push beyond the limits, make history, change our corner of the world and make this more than a business but a place we want to be each day. If in this place there is energy, passion, respect and talent filled with colleagues who are willing and ready to work as a team we will enjoy this workplace. We will be empowered and inspired by one another daily. We will want to go to work. At the end of the day we will be happy to return to our families, friends and home life fulfilled in a job well done.
Why are you here? Reflect on that question answer it and let it empower you today.
