Professional life is unforgiving. Any job or title you get, guaranteed there are hundreds of others who are scheming on it and/or pissed off, believing they were more qualified for it than you in the first place. As soon as you sign that contract or accept that job, expect to be thrown into the deep end of the pool with no lifeguard. Sink or swim.
3:41 Today’s Topic: Sink or Swim
6:50 Point I: If you don’t display that you have an understanding of what needs to be done and ability to execute the job and a willingness to align your actions with the program, they’re gonna say – on to next one.
9:49 When we are new at what we do, we tend to believe that everybody else should be thinking about us.
10:40 No one else is going to take any responsibility for helping you get to where you need to go.
11:01 Point II: When money is involved, patience gets low and it gets low fast.
13:33 If you do not show the ability to swim, you look like your sinking and not swimming, they’re going to let you drown and throw somebody else on the pull and see who’s gonna be able to make it.
14:32 Get your ASS in gear
16:45 Point III: This is why you get a coach, trainer, consultant, therapist or any type of investment where you go get yourself a personalized and individualized attention specific to you.
18:25 If you feel like there’s a lot of pressure in what you do, don’t expect anybody to figure out and have sympathy for you.
