Doing a little extra can benefit you in two different ways, both of them inviting opportunities, an increase in understanding and in building a positive reputation. By paying attention to what is going on around you, many opportunities are so plain everyone else skips right over them without giving a second thought. Paying attention to small intricacies in methods or equipment can save the company you work for money hand-over-fist, and you can believe that others will notice. In understanding the equipment and functions better than the other members of your team, you’ll be in the know of the functionality and processes.
Good leaders pay attention and make notes of those who will benefit them, so they will first think of those who do a job effectively. When others respect you for the work you put out in quality and quantity, the others who are not as valuable will go by the wayside when the going gets tough. By putting yourself and your ideas out there, you will discover more than adequate compensation for yourself, as well as opportunities most can only dream of securing.
“The meeting of preparation with opportunity generates the offspring we call luck.”
The typical worker reports to work on a set schedule, conforming to a contract or a schedule, before beginning to work. Supervisors tell you what you will accomplish and what you cannot do, if you anticipate continuing to work within the company. However, no matter how influential your supervisor is, there is one aspect that only you can control–your mind.
You attitude about your job, the things you think about, and whether you feel the monetary compensation and requirements are fair, is completely up to you. When you foster negative feelings about your position, you can never plan to be happy at work, unless something happens and you change the way you see the situation. Your attitude, which is your real master, is only under your control–no one else’s. When you control your emotions, you begin to control your reactions, and control the implication of the events.
Remember that life truly is a game, and in order to win you need to be able to make decisions for your own mind, instead of waiting for someone else to do it. Positive outlooks beget positive results, so ensure your outlook is fantastic!
