Success is always on the mind here at Atlantic Solutions (Somerset, NJ). We’ve collected three pretty fantastic quotes to inspire you to achieve greatness in your career.
“Before you are a leader, success is all about growing yourself. When you become a leader, success is all about growing others.”
Think about what they tell you every single time you’re on an airplane. Secure your own mask first before helping others. Welch volunteers some fantastic words of wisdom. Before taking on a leadership role, your focus is on your own professional development, as it should be. It’s not that you’re unwilling to help others — it’s just that you need to first put yourself in a position to be able to do that.
At Atlantic Solutions we insist that each individual is able to manage him or herself before training or managing others. This ensures that the person is ready and able to deliver value. In a leadership role, if your team succeeds you succeed. So it’s in everyone’s best interest that you help your squad grow.
“Develop success from failures. Discouragement and failure are two of the surest stepping stones to success.” -Dale Carnegie
Your attitude about the journey to success is everything. When average people fail, the feel discouraged and stop moving forward. Whether by making excuses, losing their sense of urgency, having self-pity, or taking their eye off the bigger picture — average people slow themselves down. Now, on the other hand, above-average people view failure in a positive light. They see it as a learning experience and they understand that it’s a normal and natural part of growth.
“There is no beast mode, there are only beasts, and they’re like that all the time.” -Tim Grover
Success is a way of life. It’s a series of habits practiced day in and day out. It’s doing what you need to do even when you don’t feel like doing it. It’s giving one hundred percent to everything you do and not leaving anything on the table. Being a beast is a state of mind, it’s not a Halloween costume!
