The Obvious Mindset. [DH Sweet 16 #3]

obvious choice

Two words to always live by: hard work.

Is there anything in life that’s worth it that doesn’t require hard work? Making the basketball team, graduating from college, buying that house, holding that first newborn of yours, getting your puppy potty-trained, getting that promotion? None of these came without late nights, sweat, doubt, time. The list goes on. And if they do come without hard work, is the satisfaction ever that great? Half of what’s great to show is the climb, the distance you went to get there. The work you put in is what you remember most about your accomplishments.

It’s why everyone loves an underdog.

Enter another episode of David’s Sweet 16, the philosophical compass he aims to live by: Make Yourself the Obvious Choice. It’s a simple yet powerful concept: if it’s not obvious to your boss and peers who is in line next for a promotion, who is best for the job, then you need to step up your game. And if you and another person are neck-and-neck for the gig, you need to realize you likely won’t get it. That is the mindset to have.

Being close is not good enough, you must own it.

We’re not talking about arrogance, we’re talking about confidence and awareness; being aware of what you need to do to be the obvious choice and then doing it. At Hall Financial, there’s a lot of growth potential as we continue to grow our team. We love the idea of setting people up for success and we welcome leaders. We want you to be the best professional version of yourself that you can be. We want to help you be the obvious choice. Make sure you’re always asking yourself these questions:

  • What am I going to do to become the most qualified?
  • What can I do to make myself better?
  • What will make me the obvious choice?

Send us your resume and start becoming the obvious choice.

After all, “hard work beats talent when talent fails to work hard.”
