Every organization, especially those based on sales and/or hospitality has them. The superstar.
The one for whom everything comes easy. They take on more work, they execute flawlessly. They are happy and they build forward momentum. Sometimes it’s the new kid in the organization. Sometimes a veteran with thirty years experience. Age has nothing to do with it. Some people are simply awesome at their job.
Why are THEY better than YOU?
I’ll tell you why:
They work harder.
They follow up.
They stay positive.
They ask for help when needed.
They stay focused.
They don’t complain.
They bring up tough issues, but in a careful way.
They are the ones people turn to for answers to their questions.
They work their ass off to put the right energy in the right directions.
Yes, all the hard stuff. Doing a great job, being exceptional, is not easy. And once you’re there, it’s easy to fall downhill.
Strive to be exceptional. Aim to be one that is best at what you do, for no reason other than it’s a great vantage point to see the world from.
