Worker mentality is critical in today’s employment. Like most companies, my company just had their year-end reviews. I walk around the office and my inquiring mind looks into how people take the results of there review. For those that have a bad review or not as good as they hope the results are taken one of three ways that I can tell:
- Mope around and beat themselves up wondering why.
- Take it as a motivation to correct actions and take it upon themselves to do better
- Become angry and take vengeance (whether it be not working or something worse)
Unfortunately, it is a harsh world out there…Unfortunately, a lot of youth out there feel entitled to more. (Don’t get me wrong I understand that the cost of living is insane, in Ca you need to make three times minimum wage or $33 an hour to afford a typical 2-bedroom apartment read more here.)
I understand the struggle and the desire for more especially when you put your heart and soul into what you do making those sacrifices. I want to encourage those out there that are struggling. Do not give up keep pushing forward. Do not fall into the temptation to seek vengeance. Instead, be a light and learn what is needed for the company. Work hard and make your name in this word.
I leave you with this to read. The motivation for this post an example of very poor worker mentality.
