    Putting the Success Jigsaw Pieces Together

    Coach John Wooden mentions the virtues of successful leaders. The most basic ingredient is hard work. The only alternative is to inherit the ownership of the company. Even then, to keep it profitable will require lots of hard work.

    Hard work does not mean drudgery and boredom. Learn to love the job you are presently doing. As you can, do those projects with enthusiasm. Coach Wooden is sure you will do a much better job because accomplishment brings with it an enthusiastic attitude.

    Seldom will only one person be responsible for success. Everyone along the path has helped physically or with ideas. Sometimes a simple word of encouragement works wonders. We ought to start now to praise and cordially sighted and goal oriented. Friendly workers produce so much more than workers who feel neglected and unappreciated.

    Another aspect is to be loyal to all who have helped us to this point. Loyalty begets loyalty. When we forget and fail to support our friends, we get the same in return. The lessons we have already learned can easily be passed on. We are truly grateful to those who have assisted us in tough time. Let us intentionally return the favor to those behind us.

    These last two rest squarely on our shoulders. This one is self-control. When faced with unjust criticism keep our poise. Stay in control of the situation when an enormous problems springs up in our face. Coworkers will remain behind us and support us if we keep our composure.

    The final one is initiative. The minimum wage earner does not know how to improve or change things for the better. It is up the leader to initiate new strategies.

    Hopefully, we can fit each of the jigsaw puzzles pieces together to reach our goal.
