DAY 113 – Take Pride in Your Work
I’m trying my best to teach my sons to take pride in themselves and in their work. One is all about his outfits and matching hats, while his work ethic and grades leave much to be desired. I tell him that loving yourself includes more than just having nice clothes and shoes. That’s a very limited way of thinking and I don’t wish for them to be trapped in that way. So, everything we do becomes a representation of our personal brands. Work ethic should include the ability to help others and to do so even when there is little to no financial gain. Work ethic should be like a 7th sense that kicks in and compels you to do what it takes to assist in reaching a point of completion for any given task. I go to so many places of businesses and see people almost mad to be there. Good customer service is rare to find. Taking pride in yourself should extend to any work that you do. It seems popular to be angry. I teach them to smile and be courteous and try not to allow bad attitudes to follow them everywhere they go. I know it can be difficult, but whether you are cleaning toilets or playing professional sports, you should do the job well and with a sense of pride.
