The following steps were delivered in a 5-week series by Truth at Work

  1. Out Hustle and Out Work Everyone. As Paul Bryant said, “It’s not the will to win that matters, everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare to win that matters.”
  2. Do the right thing, even when no one is looking. –Proverbs 10:9
  3. It’s the little things that make all the difference.  That is, Major on the Minors.
  4. Focus on the Process and not the Results.  For example, We can’t control whether or not our customer buys from us. However, we can develop a process that helps them understand so that they make a good buying decision.
  5. Stay Positive – Especially when others are negative. –Philippians 4:8

Tips for staying positive:

  • Hang out with successful people
  • Keep the question in mind: What can I learn from this situation?
  • Focus on what you can change
  • Invest in other people
  • Give yourself a positive self-talk everyday
  • Practice an Attitude of Gratitude
