There are two types of people in the world: the runner and the watcher. Most people are satisfied just watching and that is why most people are rocked by hardships.
The world doesn’t stop spinning for you.
Dumped? World spins. Fired? World spins. Car wrecked? World spins. Fail a college course? World spins. Lose the deal you’ve been losing sleep over? The world spins on. It doesn’t end. In a highly competitive and digital age, life goes on. When you’re surrounded by people who all want Success—definition left in the outskirts between Financial and Happiness—it can be difficult to get ahead.
When your world tilts on its axis, spin it. Realize you’re underperforming and make a change so the company instead wants to keep you. Put down the cell phone when driving and be present. Be aware of your professor’s expectations and surpass them. Don’t settle for simply what’s working for you now, think ahead to tomorrow and what’s coming next.
If you’re settling, you’re getting passed by and left in yesterday.
Enter No. 13 of David’s Sweet 16 Compass to Success item: Be Your Own Disruptor. To quote the boss himself, “Always be forward thinking of what’s coming next. Instead of waiting for a competitor to disrupt you, be ahead of it and do things even when what you are doing is working. If you aren’t growing, you’re dying.”
Successful people don’t settle.
Successful people have a hunger for tomorrow. They go to bed satisfied and wake up with a purpose. They pass landmarks and achieve goals and are looking around for more opportunity while on the journey. They aren’t on a one-track mind to success. They’re filled with forks in the road and pushing ahead. And they create those forks themselves.
Successful people are hungry—to grow, to be better, to improve. They work towards tomorrow while living in today.
They are innovative.
In a digital age, it’s looking ahead at robots but acknowledging client satisfaction is not being met in the mortgage industry, and then using technology to enhance—not replace—a process that demands personal attention.
