My parents would be the first to tell you that I have always enjoyed going to work. In fact, I enjoy working as much as I enjoy being at home or on vacation. If you don’t believe me, I encourage you to leave a comment, and my mother will be happy to respond.
My motivation for working has always been greater than any paycheck. I believe that the work I have performed each day makes a difference. Yes, that even included a part-time job in high school when I worked as a telemarketer selling carpet cleaning services. I also believe that many of my happiest moments in life are a direct result of the people I work with, my commitment and desire for responsibility, and my need to want to help others and businesses succeed.
Over the past several months, I have encountered new challenges, uncertainties, and even some surprises. How I react to circumstances that are completely out of my control is up to me. What has kept me motivated and focused during this time period has been my desire to continue to work with a purpose and to have a positive impact.
Abundant opportunities surround each of us in the world today. Tap into those opportunities. If opportunities are not there, create them!
My deliberate and purposeful decision to be an executive assistant, college educator, trainer, business owner, and writer has led me down an incredible path filled with personal and professional growth, lifelong friendships, and exciting opportunities.
Let’s work each day for a purpose, not a paycheck! Life becomes sweeter when you love to go to work, and somebody is willing to pay you for it.
