Life Lessons from Corporate: Being successful doesn’t mean you are destined to fall or fail – it just means more success is around the corner for you to find.
There was a visual I used to show in corporate. Half the screen was blanked out and on one side it showed a person at the top of a peak. They achieved their goal, they got to the top. Then the blank goes away to reveal around the corner was another mountain 10 times the size.
The point of the visual was actually centered around continuous improvement and productivity. To demonstrate that even when you think you are there, there could be more challenges. You may think you found the best, fastest, most direct route, but there is another peak to climb.
It was a great visual for different projects and activities. It was a really great way to explain that change and improvement need to be constant to keep pushing the company into new heights.
The visual is a perfect example for life...
- Are you seeking continuous improvement even when it feels like things are perfect and working?
- Are you pushing yourself higher, faster, harder to see what the next peak you can climb is?
- Do you feel like you have reached it all and things, “just can’t get any better than this”?
Well I have news for you – it can always get better.
So even if you think you have achieved it all and reached it all – don’t give up continuing to look for greatness and striving for more. Being successful doesn’t mean you are destined to fall or fail – it just means more success is around the corner for you to find.
What will it take for you to reach new success heights in 2017?
